I am wondering if it is possible to remove a PCI-E x1 port from my computer and replace it with a PCI-E x16 port from another computer as my computer has a header large enough to fit it although do not have a clue how to remove the ports to swap them over.. please help
An Adapter!?!?! Im sorry dude, but it just. doesn't.work.like.that.
Even if you where to somehow able to replace the slot (impossible) its not like the motherboard is gonna have the hardware to support it. Its the equivalent of cutting the socket of an American appliance an replacing it with a European one. Sure it will fit, but the results will be less than pleasant. . Im sure you have a reason for not doing so, but why don't you just put (insert pci-eX16 card here) into the computer with the x16 slot? or just switch the mobos?
