As most of us know, modern mobos do not have the good, 'ole PCI slot. Not a single one.

I'm in need to install an external audio card (onboard audio got fried), but as you may have guessed by the title: there is no correct slot on the mobo.

So... can I actually install a PCI card in a PCIe 4x slot and not risk any damage?
