When will PCI legacy support disappear from motherboards?

I haven't been following the developments in computer technology for a while, and I'm trying to decide whether I should replace my Maudio Audiophile 192 sound card, before it becomes completely obsolete, and while I can still sell it for a good price. My current setup is a Asrock H61M/U3S3 motherboard with G620 CPU. For my next upgrade, probably due in a couple of years, and to a similarly moderate, but newer generation system, as I don't need any extra performance, is it still going to be possible to find PCI support?

  1. are you speaking from a sound card standpoint? or in general
  2. I mean if there's going to be a legacy PCI socket on any future motherboards (I know a lot of them already don't have one), into which I can put my PCI sound card.
  3. ASUS and Gigabyte still put PCI slots into most of their model line-up but MSI and ASRock seem to have already abandoned it. But I wouldn't worry about PCI being phased out yet especially if you use ASUS or Gigabyte mobo.
