I want to add a soundcard with a PCI express Slot. I tried an EVGA NuAudio card which had dropouts

the problem appears to be that the power connection for the card needs to be a SATA configuration . I'm looking at at soundblaster Z card but I can't find out what kind of connector it needs.

If the problem is that your power supply only has power leads with MOLEX (4-pin) adapters, you can go online and purchas MOLES-to-SATA adapters, an example being here:  https://www.microcenter.com/product/317966/evercool-4-pin-molex-to-sata-power-adapter---6-quot
