SCSI Slot???

Archived from groups: alt.comp.hardware.pc-homebuilt (More info?)

So far I'm not having any luck finding a new motherboard with a scsi slot on
it. Any recommendations?
I have a HP 4p scanner that I need the scsi slot for. Or can it be adapted
to USB??
I hate to give this scanner up, it's been great to me.

    You will not find a motherboard with SCSI for your scanner you will need to
    buy a seperate PCI card though their should have been a card in the original
    machine it was used on?

    There are indeed MBs that have on-board SCSI. One that happens to come to
    mind is Gigabyte's GA-8KNXP.

    However they are usually quite expensive because they tend to be a 'deluxe'
    varity of MB. And, they may not have the proper connector for your scanner.

    It would indeed be much cheaper and easier to by an PCi add-in Adaptec SCSI
    card to attach your scanner to.

    You would have to install a SCSI PCI card into your computer.
