It has been quite some time since I have lasted posted anything here. I have a question. I am considering a new build (been about six years since my last) utilizing a z77 motherboard/ivy bridge idea. I have a Creative X-Fi Elite Pro sound card that I really hate to give up. I have perused many z77 motherboards from many of the manufacturers and was wondering if anything with a 'PCI' slot would still work with such an older sound card. If anyone has any ideas, please feel free to comment. Thank you for your time.
