Sound cards are being replaced by onboard high definition sound. My new motherboard came with a spdif (fiber optic) connection and an hdmi port. I connected a fiber optic cable to my old audio system. I can literally rock the house!
The second adapter I linked to will allow you to use a old PCI card in a modern PCI-e slot. It is usually called a "PCI to PCI-e adapter card". However, I think you'll find PCI and PCI-e are sometimes reversed.
Hey I am someone looking for a PCI to PCI-E adapter for a low-profile GPU in my computer. Since my computer is quite old, it still has PCI slots on the motherboard and not PCI-E. The post above was really helpful but I was wondering if there is and adapter like that for less than $30. do they make that? Thanks.
Edit: Prefrebly one that also supports something other than PCI-E x1 because all of those cards are super expensive. and keep in mind low-profile please.
