So i have finalized my system build with a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... GA-X58A-UD3R)
It has 2 pci express 1x slots and a pci slot.

I guess i don't have a choice as the XFi is pci e only http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

So my question is will this wireless card fill in the second pci e slot or should i get the pci version.

What performance loss will i suffer/ notice.
pci e - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - Wireless Adapters-_-D-Link-_-33127218
pci - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - Wireless Adapters-_-D-Link-_-33127219

BTW there will be a 5970 in there along with a gt250 or 240
