Not really. Still lot of PCI cards (audio, LAN, USB, SATA, Multimedia etc) on the market.

Yep, still alot of PCI cards out there. I just put my PCI Soundblaster X-Fi XtremeGamer soundcard down not to long ago. Rather, it put itself down.

For Ethernet, Sound, modems and other devices is not necessary the PCIex speed, so PCI is still there for those devices that doesn't need high specs.
