Graphics Cards - PCI / PCIe

  tonynoarm 20:18 11 Mar 2007

I am looking at changing my graphics card and before I do I am trying to establish if a PCIe (express)graphics card is directly interchangable with a PCI graphics card or do the expansion slots differ on the the motherboards?

They are different.

Thanks LastChip - I have not come across PCIe before, but when looking at various websites I noticed some cards used the word express, I was not sure if if was just the type of architecture used on the board or whether there where physical differnces (ie card size, number of connections etc) hence my question. Thanks for confirming
