There are some excellent PCI slot sound cards around. I have an HT Omega "Striker 7.1" sound card which is PCI. It is Win 7 compatible. - HT | OMEGA STRIKER 7.1 Channels PCI Interface Sound Card

The video card, your Radeon HD4650, has nothing to do with sound unless you are using HDMI for video and sound.

You seem to be confusing the two. Other than possibly 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound, the integrated sound on your PC is probably good for most games.

So my question is, once I move the sound card from one slot to another, do I have to reinstall the drivers or...
