Hello,
I want to purchase and install a NIC card for my HP computer. I have several open PCIe slots. Will any NIC work? Or, do I have to make sure it is a PCIe NIC? Will a regular PCI NIC work?
Thanks!

You can't used a PCI device in any PCIe slot. To use a PCI device you must have an available PCI slot. The two are not interchangeable.
