what about PCI-express (PCIe) ?
there are great cards for that slot, unless for some other reason you want an external card...

I don't see anything about the PCI-E 1x slot being blocked.

I forgot to mention, why not just use the standard built in 7.1? Better quality then using any USB device...

I have the EVGA SLI LE motherboard, it has 3 PCI-e 16x(being used by the video cards) + 1 PCI-e 4x (blocked by one of the graphics card) + 1 PCI (also blocked).. unfortunately, there are no pci ports of any type available
Right now, I have a sound blaster x-fi fatality pro series boxed (I used it in my previous pc) but I am unable to use it because there are no pci ports available
