So, I took everyone's advice and bought a sound card...AFIK there's no quality or performance difference between PCI and PCI-E sound cards right? So, I grabbed a PCI sound card thinking that I would move my second video card to the outside slot on my mobo....I CAN'T!!

The Raven case won't allow a double wide video card to sit in the outside slot on my mobo, and the heatpipe on the mobo covers the PCI-E X1 slot...SOOOO....

I'm going to get a PCI-E X1 card today and put it into the PCI-E X16 slot.

Under $150 CDN at Canada Computers, what card would you recommend?
