Default Dell Optiplex GX260. Is it worth it?

I found a Dell Optiplex GX260. What do you know about that thing?

I have never seen a computer form like that.....

Many Nichicons HM bulging in it. Is it worth recapping?

i tried to recap one. it failed because it was in a cold garage.

asuumong you do it a good enviorment, go for it. i have a gx260 myself (trying to sell). since yours is the compact model, it might be worth it.

Assuming that the bulging caps is the only problem of that pc (I haven't looked at the psu yet) replacement caps and shipping would cost me €19 minimum.

At the same time I can have as many Intel D845PESV mobos as I like for free!
(same with the photo)
I don't think it is worth it...
