wow I'm imagining this mod and it seems pretty sweet.
If the personality card is too tall you have only 1 solution. Switch to PCI video and audio.
This looks like it will run you about $100 to buy a PCI sound card and Video card. Both of the ones i list below support 9.2.2 and will work in your PCI slots
ATI Rage 128 16mbhttp://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...ssPageName=WDVW
M-Audio 5.1 Revolutionhttp://www.newegg.com/app/viewProductDesc.asp?description=29-121-116&depa=0
These will still be too tall because I'm pretty sure they are full-height cards, and this makes them the same height as the personality card.
However, you can purchase PCI extension ribbon cables that allow you to put them just about anywhere you want.
The "PCI Flexible Extender" is expensive tho at $75 http://www.mycableshop.com/sku/PCI-FLEX-04.htm
If you can, get the PCI right angle adapters for about half that price.
I hope this helps, but it looks like you will add $200 to the cost of your mod
