Crosshair III PCI-E slot Question

I have a Crosshair III formula and the the current card supplied by asus doesn't work for me. No windows 7 compatibility. :(
And I'm getting a SB X-Fi Titanium for a very good price.
So the question is will that creative card work in the black PCI-E slot?? or that black slot is for only that cheap card??
Due to CrossfireX both of the white PCI-E card get used up. But then I still have a PCI slot left(usable) but I've heard and faced that the PCI versions of creative have great issues with Win 7.
What to do?

    The SB X-Fi specs says that is PCI-E 1x, so, should work in the black or both white lines of ur mobo.

    Ohhh righ like ASUS support:

    Thanks for contact with ASUS support,

    The SB X-Fi that u want buy is PCI-E x1 and the Crosshair III have 3 slots that meets that requirements,so u won't have any problem installing that card in the mobo.

    Thanks for contacting with the ASUS support and have a nice day. :lol:
