    I'm having trouble in locating any PCI ports on my motherboard of my HP Pavilion. I was wondering if there is a way to plug in a PCI port extender into a DDR DIMM slot. If not, is there another way to add a PCI port extender to a motherboard.

    A reply with some form of solution in a rapid time frame would be greatly appreciated.

    Jeez, calm down. I expected a reply in like a few months. I wasn't sure how quickly people posted on these forums.

    I'm a douche occasionally. I quite enjoyed the frantic tone that was conveyed through the past few messages.

    Umm, no. Completely different standards and protocols.

    So I haven't found any PCI ports, meaning I need a new mother board. Unless there are unconventional methods of adding PCI ports. Do you have any recommendations?

    Thanks? I guess?

    Realistically it'd be a new board. What CPU and current board do you have?

    Not sure. I was more focused on the PCI ports. Give me a minute to check.

    What exact model of Hp do you have? The old pci ports are going away with newer systems. Going with pci express ports now and you won't be able to use older pci cards in the new ports.

    It's an HP Pavilion. An exact model number is unknown to me.

    Yeah, thats a very basic motherboard. Nothing you can do. What piece of hardware are you trying to add?

    Here is the motherboard.

    Ideally I would like to add a graphics card and sound card along with a capture card. I already guessed I would need a better mother board.

    You'll need more than just a new motherboard... CPU, RAM, probably PSU, probably HDD, and then the other stuff you've already mentioned. You're pretty much at a full new build.
