Looking at GA-X58A-UD3, and the top PCI-E x1 socket seems to clash with northbridge chipset heatsink. Can I place a 1x card in another PCI-E socket further down the board? As long as it's not shared between the videocard GPU PCI-E lanes.

Have a X-Fi Extreme Music PCI, looking at
Asus Xonar DX 7.1 or Asus Xonar D2X

With Windows 7, EAX is no longer required for gaming?
