    Does anyone know of an affordable adapter to be able to use an old PCI card in a system with only PCIe and PCIe x 16 slots. I'm trying to utilize my old ' Turtle Beach Video Advantage PCI' in my current system that only has PCIe and PCIe x 16 slots. (ASUS M2R32-MVP mother board) I found something that might work but the cost is like $1100.00.Is there a better way. ( I know they make the Video Advantage USB but I like the "PCI' usability. Any thoughts would be greatly welcome! Thanks guys!!

    I looked at a photo of your board and it showed two PCI slots. If your video card is a PCI card why can't you use it in one of the two slots? :confused:

    I used to have that board in my own system and yes it does have pci slots. Next question; do you mean a video card as you posted or is that a turtle beach sound card? I have never heard of a turtle beach video card.

    Thanks, I thought they were all PCIe, PCIe X 1, or PCIe x 16 slots, Yes the card is Turtle Beach, kinda old as it is not found on a Turtle Beach web site under products. It is a video capture card for video editing, it captures old analog video. Name..Turtle Beach Video Advantage PCI. Great internal front panel so everything dosent have to hook up to the rear of the tower. Thanks for your insite to my avalibility of the PCI slot, that was worring me, I was not looking forward to pulling out my tower and breaking it down but once to get it all done. Thanks again!
