Default Dell GX620 Mini Tower Mobo Cap Replacement

I have a failed Dell GX620 Mini Tower. I was told that the system became unstable, would not post, and would often shut down and reboot on its' own. I suspect the mobo caps and will also check the PSU (not done yet). Does anyone have, or know where I can find, a copy of the mobo electrical schematic? I want to perform a THOROUGH cap replace and would like to have a schematic and board layout. I have seen many threads here and elsewhere that address the SFF and USFF versions of the "620" but rarely do I see the mini tower. Thanks for the help!

Also, is there benefit in upgrading the PSU, even if the caps appear OK, for caps with better ripple protection?

Id check out the psu first - probably has bulging caps.
Please post the make and model of the PSU
We can help a lot more if you please post good clear pictures of the PSU & Mboard, front and back (in the same orientation) and close up of connectors, (max resolution 2000x2000 and 2MB) using the manage attachments button, which is found by clicking "go advanced" under quick reply.

Please do not post inline and offsite as they slow down the loading of pages.

Examples of what is needed

It will be useful if you can say a bit about yourself - skills tools etc.

Thanks SellDoor! I'll compile the pics that you suggested and post. I'll need some time to put them together .. if you have any suggestions about the schematic and/or board layout I would be most appreciative!
