Pretty easy question, but would like some input.  I want to get a sound card for my Dell server, but regular PCI sound cards don't fit.  Where can I find a solid sound card for this type of server desktop.

    why don't regular pci cards fit? looks like it should work fine to me...of course, this is not a configuration that dell would be willing to support...

    A regular PCI card should fit just fine. However, you could also throw a USB attached sound card onto that server. The SoundBlaster Audigy is the one I've worked with before.

    The PCI slots are 64-bit, 33 MHz - and the two standard sound cards I've tried don't fit.  I can't seem to find any sound cards on the internet that fit this configuration?  Suggestions?

    Sound Blaster Audigy 2 NX

    It is a external sound card that connects via USB 2.0 which eliminates your PCI card issues.
