oh how about i use the SLI along with the soundcard ? will that work? So when would it impose a problem regarding the PCI-lanes?

would be perfectly fine with a sound card. those things run on 1x anyways I think. the black pcie slot is rated for 4x anyways. problems would probably start with tri-sli (inherently, since one card would only run at 4x.. and that's pushing it imo, though not by much) or dual-dual cards (8x lane split between two cards.. again pushing it. 4x per card isn't a lot!)
