can I put an asus xonar DG in the Z77A-G45?

Derp?

I just built the thing after upgrading from a p5q pro motherboard. I wanted to use the xonar from this build with the g45 motherboard but for some reason it looks like the PCI slot in the G45 is very different than what I've seen. Can someone tell me what slot this thing goes into if it does? Thanks!

edit: it looks like the only slot it could go into is PCIE_7. PCI_2 and PCI_5 looks like they are for graphics cards. The other slots are way too tiny.

That is a legacy PCI card. Unfortunately you g45 motheboard only has PCIe slots which are not backwards-compatible. You will need a Xonar DGX if you want to use a soundcard of similar quality.
