    This may be moot point when I open my computer up, but I'm installing a new graphics card and am trying to get all my ducks in a row before I start. How will I be able to tell which PCI slot is the PCI Express slot or are they all the same?:confused:

    Thanks
    Peg

    No they are not all the same. The PCI express 16 slot is usually the top slot. It is usually the one with the old video card in it. If it does not have a card in it. It is the one at the top with a little latch at the back of it.
