It's time to start over with new cpu/board/ram for pci-e 2.0. some of the older boards are way too expensive, as much as a complete upgrade.

o1die is right, you can't upgrade a MB to PCI 2, you have to get a new MB.

^you will need DDR3 memory too. And if you want to reuse your 2 X IDE Harddrive 150 gig (and possibly an IDE Optical Drive), make sure the motherboard you get also have IDE port. The latest motherboards no longer have this feature so be careful.
