Hello mate now why an external sund card have yu go no slot left??

Personally I use Asus Xonar cards in my desktops two with the older DG model and one with the current DSX.
Both have a brilliant GUI for mixing / effects / speaker positioning etc

You can see in the pic in the link it does not need a huge slot either and gets power from the board it can drive up to 7:1 systems my current Logitec Z506 (5:1) almost rips the room apart LOL!!
