    Is there any difference in the terms for this? My motherboard manual only says PCI slots. I'm looking on sites for graphics cards and they say PCI Express on them. I'm looking into buying a graphics card. Someone clear this up for me so i don't go and buy something thats not compatible for my pc? Thanks

    pci & pci/e is like comparing apples & oranges, different slots all together, pci slots are usually white & pci/e are black to brown
