An x1 card will go into any larger slot. Either do that, get a USB ADC, or a PCI one and use something else for wireless. Also, people serious about recording usually choose not to do so in an environment that is blatantly exposed to wireless signals.

That was a suggestion. Any major manufacturer PCIe x1 sound card will fit into any of those x16 slots you have available. Or get an external USB ADC which doesn't suffer from RF pollution inside your case, or do as he suggested and get rid of your PCI/PCIe wireless card and get a USB WiFi solution and use that slot for a sound card. Short of somebody coming over and doing it for you, I don't see what else can be suggested at this point.

p.s. I have 15 years of pro audio experience and 25 years of PC building experience. This is not a casually applied suggestion here. LOL.

I wasn't directing my last reply to you, thank you for all your help. I've been looking around at both your examples and other x1 cards now that I know they work like that (lol). It just seems like he was criticizing more than helping. I'm not really looking to spend a lot of money, I'm not professional recording anything with any real production value. TBH, it's more for multiplayer LP's on YT. $200 studio sound card is overkill for me. Thanks for letting me know about the PCI lane though.

    I have also been looking for a simple low-cost quality soundcard that has multiple inputs that it can record from simultaneously.  The only one I have found so far is the Realtek ALC888 onboard sound that is on some newer motherboards.  It can record from two stereo inputs simultaneously and has good audio capture quality.

    Some time ago, I came across 8 Sounds USB, but we need somebody to build it for us!  Personally, I could build everything on it except for the surface-mount soldering, which is a bit too fine for me. smile.gif
