    Hey, so I need to get some capacitors for repairing a PSU, and I need:

    330uf*** 35v*** 10mm
    1200uf** 16v*** 10mm
    3300uf** 10v*** 10mm
    2200uf** 10v*** 10mm
    1000uf** 25v*** 10mm
    1000uf** 10v*** 8mm
    120uf*** 50v*** 8mm

    The problem is, some of these are somewhat rare from what I can see, and I don't know where to even look for them, or where would have better prices. Any help?

    And you dont have to stick with the same Voltage rating, you can go higher. That is just what they are capable of. Do if you cant find a 120uf 50v get a 12uf 80v all will still be good in the world.

    I am guessing you are in the Americas, but you have forgot to put your location in your profile, so we have no idea where you are in this huge place we call earth.

    ebay is always good for NOS sets. Many of the guys will make custom packages for you. May not be the best stuff in the world and a couple years old. But if its a repair and rare NOS might be worth looking into.

    When it comes to electrolytic caps, I suggest you do NOT want to use NOS parts, unless you have re-formed the dielectric.

    ONLY buy from authorized large distributors, who have a high turnover of their stock.

    Electrolytic capacitors sitting on a shelf are like eggs going rotten.

    You can re-form older capacitors if you have the time, patience and equipment, but time most often = money.
