I have a question if anyone could help.

I have a Geforce 4 MX440 that is on a PCI bus. I want to install a sound card (Sound Blaster Live) in a PCI slot. Is it possible I can burn my motherboard from running to cards from a PCI bus?

if you have 2 pci slots you should be perfectly fine.

One thing you may want to look at is repositioning a fan to suck air from it.

Nah, no worries on havin another PCI card. You really have nothing to worry about, but it's nice to keep airflow good just as a general rule.

No, why do you think you have more than 1 pci slot? :lol:

The only thing that can be a problem with 2 or more pci slots is an addressing issue. Two or more peripherals with the same IRQ can cause conflicts. But don't worry about it, if you are only using 2 pci slots, you should be ok. :)
