    Looking for a PCIe POST Card

    Since regular PCI slots are getting rare on computers, I'd really like a PCIe compatible card for testing. The only one I could find is ridiculously expensive. It's $200, and the ones for PCI slots cost like $10 on Amazon. I'd rather not get a PCI to PCIe adapter because that might make it difficult to fit in some computers, but if absolutely necessary I can deal with that.

    @nightstah Hoping you'd know the answer to this one.

    Thought most boards still have at least a single PCI slot. I get PCIE has taken over much like PCI did from ISA. But still thought most boards have at least one of them.

    Lol, I looked for an hour. Thanks man!

    I've stopped seeing PCI slots in a lot of new pre-built computers, especially the ones with mini or micro ATX boards.
