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?

Canada Computers - Your Neighbourhood Computer Store and Service Centre - PC Systems and Hardware Components, Notebooks, Electronics, and more.

Canada Computers - Sound Cards : Creative Sound Blaster X-FI TITANIUM - PCI Express Sound Card (Retail) (70SB088000004).

And, you're right. PCI-e does not offer any performance advantage with sound-cards.
For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.
