Default soundblaster 24 bit live...?

I have looked at the soundblaster 24 bit live card and something troubles me. It says PCI slot but it doesn't even look like it will work with the PCI slot. What is it?????

Here is the PCI slot.

So...this is a PCI card even though it doesn't look like one, right? It fits in a PCI card slot?

There's only one type of interface for sound cards today and that is PCI. In the future, there may be available cards for PCI-express. The link you provided will fit on your motherboard's existing PCI slot with no problem whatsoever.
