View Full Version : extra PCI slots?
October 12th, 2001, 02:22
Is there anyway I can add more pci slots to my pc. The one I have only has two (Thats what I get for going for the cheapest deal)

yeah sure.. but those pci expansion things (at least the one i saw) need a cardbus interface(i.e. in laptops), if you have one, then you'll be able to add some more slots...:)
if you wanna avoid the hassle and you have some money to spare, then buy a new mobo.:)

Nope not possible due to hardware contraints (the same reason why pentiums etc could only access Simms in pairs). There used to be a device called simm savers which enabled you to plug 2 Older (were they 30 pins can't remember) simms into 1 larger simm socket (damn whats wrong with me can't remember the no of pins here either) but these wouldn't work in your case.
