Do sound cards need power from the PSU?

Hello,

I'm thinking of buying a sound card and I was wondering if you will need power from the PSU to power the card? Or will I just need to put it in the PCI slot on the MOBO and it'll be good to go?

The sound card I'm thinking about buying is this: http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-Xonar-Channels-Interface-Sound/dp/B002VAD716/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=2NM7IM0T93D1H&coliid=I3MTU3TZNG7TK2

    So this sound card that I'm buying won't need it right? Just double checking.
