I was wondering if there was any sort of expansion that allowed an external PCIe x16 slot to be added? Also, what connection would I need on my motherboard to be able to connect it? I know of several that are out for Laptops that connect on external slots specific to laptops, but what about doing that with a desktop?
I guess, in short, it would be asking if there was a way to get extra PCIe x16 slots on my motherboard, and if so, where to find them. Any help would be awesome, thanks.
I think what you're looking for is a new motherboard.
The laptops have an express card slot(I think) that was specifically designed to offer PCIe capabilities. The problem is where are you going to connect anything like this to your existing motherboard? If your motherboard manufacturer wanted to allow for another PCIe card, they would have included another PCIe slot.
