Hello,
I have a Mini-ITX Board with only one PCIeX16 slot and i need a solution that will enable me to connect to two PCIeX16 cards
The PC boards are: IEI KINO QM670 and BCM IX67QM
Thanks

Buy a new board with two PCIe x16 slots. That's the only way.

Thanks, but i need to connect 2 cards. Is there any extensions, by pass connecters trough comm ports, any kind of trick that will enable me to still use what I have now?

(I have a frame grabber and I need to connect a LOW POWER (40W) GPU In addition)

Both mini-mother-boards already have a built-in onboard GPU with multi-display ports - so why the need for another low-power GPU? I don't get it.

craighay:
Unfortunately, I don't think that will work. I think Z68 is the only chipset that will allow you to have both a discrete GPU and Sandy Bridge's integrated GPU enabled. I don't know whether it allows you to have both working at the same time though.

frimer:
If you actually need two PCIe x16 cards in those systems, you're hosed. There is no pass through -- you still need a second PCIe slot and neither one has two of them.

Many thanks to all,
One last Q , do you know of a Mini-ITX Board (similar ~ to what i use now [IEI KINO QM670 & BCM IX67QM ] that have two PCIe x16 slots??
