do you have it near something like a CRT monitor or speaker system?

there are loads of things around a computer that could create noise in an audio line..even though an USB interface.

you could always try a better interface. Although the one you have now is OK its not the best.

Firewire is faster and will give better recordings....but internal sound cards like the type you can install in a desktop are the best overall.

Try the M-audio Delta 44 or M-audio 2496
Both are great but will keep some cash in your pocket.

About 3 foot away should be fine.

Putting an interface near any type of speaker or CRT will give you a humm or buzzing in your recordings.

If you are simply geting poor recordings it may be you are set up wrong in the settings, using a cheap mic, or going direct into the interface.

It's always best to get a good mic like the Shure sm57 and mic your amp with it.

Going line in out of an amp or guitar normally will give poor recording tone.

with that interface you should be able to make good recordings. how are you plugging your electrics in? direct? micing the amp? direct from the amp? there will be ways of making quality recordings and just buying a new interface probably wont change anything in my opinion.

Wait - are you running your guitar direct and then using a crappy modeling program? There are a lot of issues with that, but suffice to say a good sound begins at the source - ie get a good amp and a decent mic and you can produce tones that will blow away any of the competitors. Really the best route to go even on a budget imo.
