This is your board right?

Why can't you use the slot furthest to the left?

EDIT: nevermind. I was assuming you meant PCI-e but I guess you bought a oldschool PCI card? Just so you know, you don't have to put the little PCI-e cards in the little slots. They will still work in the big PCI-e slots as well.

well my gpus are taking up the two right-most pci-e slots. can't put my pci sound card in the normal sized pci slots because my vid cards take up too much space. but, i can put a sound card in one of the two little pcie slots. that's what im looking for. will a pci card fit into a pci- e slot?

you should be able to use the middle PICE x1 slot with any PCIe compatible card... what did you order and what is wrong wiht the Xonar DG you have on sig?

the northbridge heatsink will give you issues with a long card unless the heatsink is very low profile

no PCI and PCIe is not compatible.
