I recently was given a NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT ( http://www.ebuyer.com/product/155030 ) as a present but my computer has no PCI express slots so i was going to buy a new motherboard so i can use it. My problem is that i'm currently using a ShuttleX computer which is very small and has its own type of small montherboard ( http://www.gamer-hea...289_shuttle.jpg its about 7 inches tall). After a long time searching i couldn't find any Shuttle motherboards which had PCI express ports on them. Anyone here know of any of these, or a 9000 Series Graphics card that i can run off an AGP/ PCI slot ?

Everything in a Shuttle case is totally unique. The boards are unique, the PSUs are unique (so you probably can't run that 9800GT off it anyway) and the things are built down to a spec that pretty much renders them non-upgradeable.

If you've got the exact model number of your ShuttleX we can have a look on the website at the specifications but I'd be surprised if you can get much else in it. They're nice but they're a pain when they break.

So if a new motherboard is a no, what would be the best cost-effective method? A new motherbaord+case?

Realistically, yes.
