Windows 7: 7.1 Sound Card needed

7.1 Sound Card needed

Hi everyone I currently have a dell precision 670 with a Foxconn LS-36 Motherboard and I need a 7.1 surround sound- sound card. The only problem is the the PCI slot is being completely blocked by a GeForce GTX 660TI graphics card. And the only other slots available are PCIX connectors that are about 5 inches long.

Thanks.

One of these,

ASUS Xonar DSX Audio Card - Newegg.com

and put it in the 1x PCI-E slot.

I'm trying to find more info on this old PC, but so far it doesn't look like it has a PCIeX1 slot. Its an old Win2000/XP machine.

Update: Looks like it has a PCIe port (#15) in motherboard layout. Dell describes it as a PCIe4/8 slot.

It has a 8x slot which a 1x card can go in.

That is #15, as noted on the motherboard layout drawing.
