Title: Soundcard
Post by: chris635 on September 02, 2013, 02:31:28 PM
Hey Shane,

  I need a sound card but my video cards (crossfire) block the PCI and PCIEx1 slot. I do have another PCIEx16 slot. Will a PCI x1 soundcard work in the x16 slot?

No, but you can get a sound card that would fit in those slots, here is an example

But I dont see any for a normal pcie slot.

Perhaps a usb sound card then?

That slot for the sound card is blocked. So that card you sent me could not be used in the pcie slot?

This might help me get under my video for a connection. I think it's a viable option. What do you think?

I have a open slot in my case right above first video card. the X1 slot is under video card 1 but in the second slot position.
