FYI for the future. You can plug PCI-E 1x cards into the slots used for video cards.

Make sure your motherboard supports this. Mine didn't have the slot. Had to return it

Cancelled order. Thanks Best Buy for cancelling 90% of my orders lately. BB's website is like a girl on her period. It just acts up for no reason.

I saw that as well and was thinking about getting this because I like the convenience of the control module but apparently plugging headphones into the module results in inferior sound vs plugging directly in the card. So that killed it for me. I guess you can just use the card and not the module but the module was the only reason I was considering buying since I have a good sound card.
