I've seen ABIT ans ASUS mobos with bulging/leaking capacitors. As for what
brands of PC used those boards, I couldn't tell you, but I guess that it's
practically all of the big brands.

You're not going to be able to whittle it down to a list of brands and/or
models that were affected for people to cross-reference when they're
looking for a 2nd hand machine. It just isn't that clear-cut. For one
thing, a used PC on the list could well be unafffected by the problem or
could have been repaired. Secondly, the problem affected EVERYONE.

Thankfully, however, the market in used computers is usually rather slow,
which means that few people should be affected by the problem nowadays.
