Sound card for HP Proliant DL380p G8

Our client has an HP Proliant DL380p G8 and one of my VM's (XP) has to output an alarm via the ESXi 5.1 Server external speaker. I'm looking for a sound card to suit the HP Proliant DL380p G8

Any suggestions? also will it work with the XP VM?

You can try this card or any other PCIExpress low profile
I had the same situation with a voicemail server.   I found a cheap USB sound card and it worked fine.  Something like this

I didn't have to shutdown all the VMs to do it.
