Fitting a Sound card!

Not impressed with onboard audio on my ASUS M2N-SLI mobo, but alas do not know enough about about fitting a soundcard!, anyway apparently the mobo does not support win 7 64bit, strange really because that's what I have been running since win 7 hit the shops, also no firmware updates available.
Could I fit a
Asus Xonar DGX 5.1 PCI-Express Sound Card

sorry for the shouting (cut&paste)?, your thoughts most appreciated.

Yep! I would go in one of the two small PCI-E x1 slots that are located above and below the blue PCI-E x16 slot.

Just a quick update, purchased the Asus DGX Xonar audio card, why oh why did I tolerate the onboard audio system, anyway I am very pleased, also the card is a good price.
