P5B DLX Wi-Fi add on? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
What else do you have in your PCI slots? I have the P5B w/o wi-fi and an ATI x1950xtx which is just as big as a 8800. I have a sound card in one and all the others are free. You should be able to fit it.

well the 8800GTX takes up the 2 pci slots below the top PCI - Express slot. And then there is the PCI-X 1x then the other PCI slot. I might beable to fit it, but I don't want to put anything that close of the GTX it gets hot as it is, and it needs all the air flow and room it can get.

I think you should....

Get a wifi dongle, as said above.
Works great (home use for me) and can be used on another pc (laptop, son's pc, new pc next year) in no time ! ! !
I've already done it the last 4 years.

Exactly..I'm in the same situation with my system, I wanted to use a sound card and a tv tuner..well when I put the sound card in next to my video card, it got up to 90c..instead of 65c. That 2nd pci slot next to the pcie 16x slot in the p5b deluxe/wifi is basically unusable.
