NIC's and pci slots

  vinnyo123 19:55 10 Jan 2004

please someone try to explain this for me .I just ran into a situation with one of these chain store's .I have 2 key PCI slots on all my mother boards(LAN).I had to buy a USB PCI card for additional
ports ,so I noticed it was PCI 2.1. I should've known from there(and three key) but anyways I learned the hard way.When did they change PCI slots on mother boards and did they change all PCI cards to three key slots etc.sound card,video card etc.Also nobody in this chain store new what I meant they looked at me like I had to heads.Also they said they do not have any NIC cards in stock.Can we still get 2 key PCI cards LOL or am I outdated..
