I am looking for people using the first PCI-E 1x slot just above the first PCI-E 16x on the UD5P. I recently went CF and my second GPU is millimeters away from my soundcard which sits in the bottom most PCI slot.

Preferably I am looking to move to a PCI-E soundcard to solve this hot situation (pun intended). Please post your pics or suggestions as I will use a lot of the information here to facilitate a sale/trade thread. THANKS!

Everything. I would prefer a non-integrated solution.

Interesting -- as a gamer I use my integrated chip and it is a wonder, handled 7.1 surround sound beautifully. Anyway -- there are PCI soundblasters out there that get the job done pretty well, just make sure that the bus will be able to handle high-bitrate sound (as well as Lossless), as the PCI bus is pretty... well, slow.

Looking for PCI-E and I already own a X-Fi.
