    :confused: What are the different speed and Volt PCI slots for?
    I see one 64-bit 133/100/66MHz (3.3V) I guess it can support a card running at these speeds?
    What cards require different speeds and different volts? Would the box you purchase a new card in explain these requirements.
    And what would this, above card, PCI slot be for?
    I see two 64-bit 100/66MHz (3.3V)
    What would this PCI slot be for?
    I see two 32-bit 33MHz with (5V) The voltage is different in this slot from the above PCI slots? Why! And what's it for?
    Hope someone knows,
    Arron

    Yep , PCI cards bus speed & width (nr of bits) evolve too like all hardware.

    Usually the 3.3V cards use less power than there 5V counter part.

    Very nice link Triple6.

    I believe that 5 V is the old TTL components technology
    & 3.3 V is CMOS low power consumption components ... not really sure :D

    Thanks Triple6,
    The web site link you suggested gave me the 101 on PCI slots.
    Who Knew?
