I just purchased a Radeon X700 Pro. It requires PCI Express, except I dont (think) I have a PCIe slot. Is there a way I can install one, or somehow use my card? Or should I just return it? Please help.

The only way to use that card would be to buy a new motherboad with a PCI-Express port. Sorry.

Ok thats what I thought. Anyone have any idea on an affordable motherboard that supports PCIe?

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks

your choices are going to be rather Limited, currently Intel has some PCI-E motherboards, and AMD is just getting them out with some with VIA and nForce 4 chipsets.

What kind of CPU do you have? cause you may end up having to get a new one too.
