No Sound on a Dell server SC440 machine

Hi everybody,
I am new to Linux, even though I have had few attempts at Linux computer over the last few years. I finally bit the bullet and a server machine with Ubuntu Studio distribution.
The computer did not come with any sound card and the only slots that are available are PCIe x1 or x4 or x8. I have found one card on ebay: Asus SupremeFX II Sound card, the link to the card is below, that is PCIe x1 that would fit into my mother board. But the question is where can I get the drivers for this card? or should I be looking at USB sound cards?

USB Audio is a safe bet

I dunno. I'd stay away from a PCIexpress sound card in linux. Since you don't have normal PCI slots in that computer, you should follow your instinct and go with USB audio. Here's a recent thread on the Ubuntu forum that talks about switching over to USB audio.
