PCI express x1 Tags: Graphics Cards PCI Express Graphics Last response: January 4, 2009 11:12 AM in Graphics & Displays Share xko101 January 4, 2009 11:00:37 AM I have a dell PC with intergrated graphics card. I want to turn this pc into a multimedia pc connecting direct to a new HDMI Sony TV. Unfortunatly the Dell PC only has 2 x PCI slots (Free) & 1 PCI express x1 slot (Free). Most of the DVI out graphics cards that offer 256 or 512 Mb seem to be using PCI express x 16 slots. Is it true that I can get an expansion card to plug into the PCIe x 1 slot to then be able to run a x16 card at the x1 speed.? If so will the graphics card fit in the slot as the expansion card is I believe 1/4 inch hign?
