help with motherboard layout - Page 2

Yes, you can plug in that sound card into where graphics cards are usually put in, The PCIe_x16 slots. It should either fit or not fit on there. I'd recommend putting it at the bottom most slot.

will pcie_x1 (the smaller mini pcie looking connector) fit a pcie (large slot) as seen at the bottom on my last picture?

Yes it will 100% fit in the long slot and work. I have this sound card too. I am very pleased with the sound quality!

You can place any length PCI-E card into a larger or same size slot, so;

a PCI-E x1 card will fit and work into a 16x, 8x, 4x and 1x slot without problem;
a PCI-E x4 card on a 16x, 8x and 4x slots;
a PCI-E x8 card on a 16x and 8x slots
