Asus crosshair formula problem

I have a asus crosshair iv formula and would like to get a good sound card for it. Im getting in to 3d gaming and movies and would like to get the best sound i can out of my setup. I have no pci express x1 slot on the board and was wondering what options i had? Can you put a pci express x1 in a x16 slot? is there a part i need to add on to make it work in the old pci slot?

The card i wanted was the new Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD but it only comes in pci x1. Is there any good new pci sound cards out?

Yes, you can run a PCIe x1 card in a PCIe x16 slot.
