Now some may remember, back in 2015, I bought a SoundBlaster Z, and paired it along with my already existing X-Fi Faltal1ty Platinum Series. SBZ used for output, X-Fi used for input with it's drive bay expansion for its inputs (Auxiliary input, 1/4" input etc etc). Onto today, I'm anticipating the release of Ryzen 3000 and have noticed, pretty much with all new modern motherboards today and of course, in the future (even in the last few generations) no longer support PCI interface so I will be presented with a dilemma.... As mentioned in the title, how would I be able to use my X-Fi without being able to use a PCI connection? I've done a little bit of research and it does appear that there are active adaptors to convert legacy PCI to pcie x1 but I have a few concerns. Which adaptors would work for the X-Fi? How would this affect compatibility? As far as I know, the X-Fi is rather sensitive to the bus it is connected to and I could foresee it being troublesome. The other problem I've seen is that many of the adaptors are for converting half-height cards - fortunately, this wouldn't be such a problem as I could use a riser cable and mount the card in one of the off-motherboard mounts supported by my case but even so I'd be concerned if this would again affect the card. Like I said though, I'm anticipating Ryzen 3000 so it wont be for a while until I upgrade but I'd like to be aware of any options and solutions available to me without having to buy into professional and ultimately, cost prohibitive equipment for my simple home media usage which include routing old game console audio, tape decks and vinyl record players (occasionally I record Vinyl records to flac, although I actually need to get a new stylus). Thanks for reading and I'll appreciate any help and assistance.
