Interesting or Useful PCIe x1


I was interested in using my PCI express x1 slots on my motherboard, but I don't really need additional usb ports or anything of that nature. I would also definitely prefer to use my PCI express x16 for a video card. Also my motherboard already has great onboard sound options so I really don't need that either. I was hoping that people could make suggestions or just tell me what is out there for PCIe x1 add on cards. I'm looking for something interesting that I don't already have available if possible, but any suggestions would be appreciated.

  2. Best answer
    You have enough USB 3.0 ports? How about sata 6? Or esata? Need wifi?
  3. I'm basically asking if there are any interesting or unique options for PCI express x1. I guess an eSATA wouldn't be a bad idea since i don't have any on board. Maybe WiFi too. Thanks TriBeard. I'll pick yours as the solution if I don't get any other answers i like better soon.
