  • PC Question: Out of PCI Slots: Any Options?

    Other than the obvious ones such as, "Get a new PC," or, "Remove a current PCI card."
    When you say to your neighbor, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night if that's alright with you," what you really mean is, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night."

      Its in my Vaio that many of us on here got. I don't want to mess with it. I view that PC as an add-only thing, not a replacement candidate.

        What else are you trying to add? What is currently using up your slots?

            I just replaced it with a kick ass ATI X900.

              I am trying to turn this into an HTPC. I already have one analog TV Tuner card. I have one HDTV Tuner card and I want/need another (record two programs at once.) I have an audio card and a network card.

                Hmm. I didn't know they made them. I'll have to look into that.

                How much are they?

                  I have a Radeon 9200. ATI has a great deal on X800s right now.

                  I'll bet the X900 is awesome.

                    You could also use a USB ethernet adapter and free the network card slot.

                      This is a wireless one. Its necessary to get program guides, etc. for where I plan on putting this HTPC.

                      But, I guess I could get a USB Wi-Fi card. Not a bad idea.

                        I have not researched cost. I have to think not cheap.

                        Definitely cheaper than the cardbus. Has to be.

                          What about a dual tuner card, this way you get two tuners but it only takes up one slot? I have a Hauppauge card and think they make good stuff.
