pci express (help a newb)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Can I put my tiny pci express wifi card into a full pci express slot on my mobo (usually used for graphics cards)? It just works better
post #2 of 4
To my knowledge no you cant as the slots are completely different in design and size. You can buy converters to do this see here http://www.technopieces.com/startechcom-half-size-to-full-size-mini-pci-express-adaptor-72624-p.asp

hope this helps:D
