hey guys. i've had my new computer for a while and i have a DFI NF4- ultra-d mobo. on the board, there are 2 PCIx16, 2 Standard PCI Slots and 2 odd looking PCI slots, loacted between the PCIx16's and at the start of the PCI slots. If i remember correctly, one is PCIx1 and the other is PCIx4. Can anyone explain what these slots can be used for?

As far as i know, any pci slot with an xnumber after is is all a form of pci express. Its to do with the amount of bandwidth that port has, its like AGP in that a 1x card will work on any slot, 2x will work from pci2x upwards and so on.
Your bound to find tonnes of techhie info on this if you do a google search.
Hope that helps.
