 more to the point how many different pci cards are there? the one computer
has NO room for more cards and I will need to remove a pci card but the
main computer has a few free slots. one pci and a few of the other; are
those pci-e?

Well.... I just googled it  and it appears those are pci-e slots.Is it
really that critical I have pci-e? I mean should I cancel my order and
change it?
