In the back of most desktop computers are removable tabs that cover slots that have been cut into the frame. When you remove the cover from your computer you will see that there are slots which align with the tabs. A tab can be removed and an interface card can be installed at that location. PCI BUSS and PCI slots are one of the types of communication formats used by desktop computers.

is a computer bus for attaching hardware devices in a computer. ... trexie z. umpad to........

It is the computer port that was superseeded by the PCI-Express slot.

NO. If you have a pci-x slot, probably it is a server, and you want to upgrade your graphics card, you can buy a PCI card and plug it into your PCI-X slot. It should work probably.

Yes. It must be a card capable of running on a PCI slot. Check with newegg.com and use an advanced search with a PCI interface. NOT PCI Express.

The types of PCI boards: PCI - Express x16, PCI- Express x1, AGP, PCI boards. PCI boards have 2 types of slots, 32-bit slot and 64 bit slot. 32-bit slot (3.3v and 5.0v), for 64 bit (3.3v and 5.0v). 64bit slots are longer than 32 bit slots. However a 32 bits slot can be used in a 64 bit slot.

PCI express (commonly referred to as PCIe or PCI-e) have taken existing PCI technology and multiplied it. (1x, 4x, 8x, 16x) PCI-e typically has a 16x or 8x multiplier compared to the original PCI transfer rates.

You need to be more specific...

User Avatar

PCI and PCI-X are generally interchangeable, but operating a PCI-X card in a PCI slot will degrade performance significantly.

User Avatar

A PCIe x16 graphics card will not work in a normal PCI slot. PCIe or PCI Express is a new standard in expansion interfaces. PCIe is physically and electronically incompatible with PCI slots.

It is not advisable. Can actually cause damage.
