Replace PC Motherboard Capacitor:Low Impedance or ESR Capacitors?

I would like to replace the bulged caps for a pc motherboard. I check the, it does not have 6.3V 3300uF Esr capacitor. Is it ok to replace it with Low Impedance Electrolytic Capacitors?

What 's the difference between Low Impedance Electrolytic Capacitors and Low ESR Electrolytic Capacitors? What type of capacitor the computer motherboards use? Low Impedance Electrolytic Capacitors or Low ESR Electrolytic Capacitors?

Both terms mean the same thing. Low series resistance and low impedance are equivalent. You must trust the supplier, not the marketing BS.

Mouser was back ordered ( 8 weeks) and I went to DigiKey (who I have used for years)

I selected some nice Nichicon UPW 105 degree series (page 527 of the catalog) .. be sure to measure the LEAD SPACING for the capacitors leads on your motherboard ("LS" mm) .. makes for nice looking replacement (and in some cases only way it will fit).
