4 GPUs - all lanes are occupied.

If I had lanes free, I wouldn't ask.

Why does anyone need sound cards anyways? I just don't understand what's so great about them. I've heard my Compaq Presario (AMD-K6 500MHz, one of the first computers with a motherboard that has on board audio) hooked up to my sound system made from random parts I've gotten at yard sales, and I've heard thousand dollar computers with multi-thousand dollar sound systems including an expensive sound card, only difference is the expensive one can blast music louder, but that's only because I have cheap speakers. So... can someone explain why you'd buy a sound card? Their has to be something I'm missing with how many drawbacks they give you.
