no, i would recommend you to place your card as far away as possible from the power source and graphic card. I believe those two are the main magnetic wave distributer in a computer.

It's a general known fact that a cleaner and more stable DC current in audio systems is of great benefit.
Perhaps GorE made the power cap replacement and didn't notice any difference due to A) his equipment setup or B) difference between the way people work!
I've definately noticed a difference, forum members have noted a difference and people visiting me have noticed a difference and this is just from replacing the power cap.
GorE - instead of just stating that everyone else is subjected to a placebo effect either prove that there is no audible benefit or please just don't comment on it.
Also...you waffle on about 0.1uF caps left out by Creative...your the only source I've seen mention this (granted I haven't looked at any technical documents in regard to any workings of the card) so why not propose the mod, reasons for it and add a little tutorial about how and what to change.
(can't even see that you have done this mod yourself let alone mention any noticeable benefit).
You are usin digital loopback (analog stage is not tested).
In ur recording control (like volume control) select line in. Right now there should be "wave" or "what u hear" selected.
(one way to get to recording control: open volume control -> options -> properties ->recording)
Line in and front out must me connected via cable.
