A motherboard I've been looking at has 2 of these slots and I'm wondering what I can put in them to save using my 32bit slots
Any help would be greatly apreciated.
Thanks

The two slots you have are primarily there for SLi or Crossfire graphics card. I'm not sure what other expansion cards there are for PCI-E.

Why specifically do you want to save your normal PCI slots?

put a powercolor ATI 550 pro Tv tuner in the slot and then install Gbpvr (free)

Just incase we decide to put another network card or sound card or card with extra usb ports on it as there are alot more available devices for the 32bit pci slots
