If you look at my expansion slots picture you'll se what I mean. IF the 7600GT was indeed processing anything it's interference would be reaching the sound card having to travel only through it's own PCU and less than an inch of air.
BUT, all my ports are DVI's, so it is all digital, so I guess what you are saying is that there won't be any processing done at all in the 7600GT since it is getting the signal completely rendered and ready for output. Right? If so then I am basically good to go...
Go is the humming from gaming... on COD2 when I look around in a quiet board I hear this humming which intensifies when I look around fast increasing the rendering activity. I don't hear any of that... so It seems the 7600GT might not be throwing out any noise...

The interference will come from the fan, also many electronics emit slight interference.
So the fan will create some interference too... humm... I can fit a bit of paper there... just have to plan for spacing and it will not be the whole card... but I can get a nice square directly behind the GPU and fan...
The insulation I removed was just for the area covered by the plastic blower... I should be able to fit two layers of insulation for the square I just mentioned for the 7600GT, but I will only need one layer of it since you can't really see it and there is no need to cover it up with anything black...
BTW, the card also looked great! Nice steady hands on the soldering!!!! The OpAmps look like they were the stock ones!
Sorry about the focus on the OpAmps close up, but both are from the same picture and I focused on the processor and main capacitor... you can still tell that Soloz2 can solder like the best though
