Default Need a cheapish PCI-E sound card

Hi, I've just put together my new comp with 2x560 Tis after my non-ti 560s failed. I've only just got round to putting my X-FI XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro card back in, and with the Tis bigger heatsinks, it won't fit!

So I'm gutted. I don't want to spend a load of money on a new soundcard which I don't really want. But I do have a PCI-E 1x slot clear at the top of the board which will fit most sound cards (I hear longer ones are blocked by the memory slots on some boards).

So really, I just want to move from PCI to PCI-E with minimum of loss in quality.

I think this is my current card:

And this is the one I'm considering:

Can anyone help me?
