I don't really understand your setup. You can only run the sound card if you have a pci slot to put it in. Most mobo will come with more then 2 slots though. I do not understand the 15 in 1 media sound card part, is it a media card or a sound card?? If you have an open(unused) pci slot, or plan on removing something to open a pci slot then you can get the xtreme gamer in your pc. rember, put it in the slot farthest away from your video card.

I saw this on the page you linked.

Expansion Slots 2 PCI slots (occupied), 1 PCI Express x16 Slot (occupied), 1 PCI-E x1 slot (occupied)

You'll need to take something out of one of the PCI slots (the white ones) to replace it with your X-FI card, it says that the system comes with a 56k dial-up modem, do you need this? If not, just pull it out and replace it with the X-FI.
