Yes you can. You can run PCI-E x1 devices in PCI-E x16 slots. I have a PCI-E wireless card running in my 3rd video card slot.

Yes, that includes PCI-E 4x/8x slots.

You can install any PCI-E card into any PCI-E slots, but the slot has to be bigger or same size.

thanks you all. you all just save me a week from having to return my Xonar for something else. Now, i have to figure out why this card is not working. I guess uninstalling the onboard sound is kinda important ha? and the drivers too? i guess i gotta go into bios to disable the onboard sound.
