Am I doomed?
I was trying to install two GIGABYTE GV-R687OC-1GD Radeon HD 6870 1GB cards, which are almost too big for my case, and in the process one of the capacitors (is this the right term?) broke off of the mother board. Is the motherboard ruined now? Is there anything that can be done? I haven't even tried to turn it on.

I bought the recommended MSI P67A-G45 B3 P67 SATA6Gb/s USB3.0 CF/SLI 8x/8x ATX. Here's is a stock picture of my board:

There are two capacitors in the upper-left, next to "Lossless Audio." The one on the right just barely broke off. Printed on the cap is: "AbQ / 10 / 10v"

Please tell me there's something I can do...
