Capacitor broke off?

I was taking off some pci-e covers to fit a new gpu and I knocked a part of my motherboard off. What does it do? how imperative is it I get it soldered back on before launching pc?

    Difficult to predict without knowing what circuitry the capacitor in question is used with...

    Entirely possible you won't notice it unless using the very specific feature the cap is used with. (for instance, the capacitor *could* be specific to onboard sound, and, specifically a Line in or Mic filter, etc..)

    You will not damage the MB by seeing what works/does not work as is....
