Can capacitors be replaced with higher capacitance ones?

I have a bad capacitor on this LCD power board. I have rev 2.6, and I noticed there is a rev 2.8 board that looks like it didn't get skimped on in parts. Can I install capacitors in my rev 2.6 board as they are used in the 2.8?

My board: x20wg-1080p rev 2.6
9 x 470μF, 1 x 100μF, 1 x 22μF, 1 x 10μF

Here's the rev 2.8:http://lcdalternatives.com/Repair-Kit-Sceptre-X20WG-LCD-Monitor-Capacitors-P1660440.aspx
6 x 1000μF, 4 x 470μF, 1 x 100μF, 1 x 22μF 1 x 10μF

The differences are circled in blue. My board seems to use lower rated capacitors, is missing one, and the microchip looks slightly different. The pictures are of the entire boards.
