I wanted to hook my old monitors up to my computer, but all the outputs on my 5770 were taken, and my motherboard only has one PCI-E x16 slot. I didn't want to buy another card, so I ended up going with this solution:

Nvidia 6200 PCI-E x16 -> x1
0105112106-00.jpg

0105112107-00.jpg

Despite all the flexing of the card as I manually sawed it (no dremel tool hehe), the card survived the procedure. By the way, the PCB material is extremely difficult to saw.


Mobo pic - the two upper PCI-E x1 slots were blocked by the RAM, one was under the dual slot of the 5770, and the last one was slightly blocked by some heatsinks. I actually sawed off pins from the card so that I could also overcome the heatsink and cmos battery obstacle as well as make it fit into the x1 slot (as opposed to cutting the slot open).
0105112110-00.jpg

Success:

The best part is that if you needed even more, you could pretty easily do this mod multiple times given the plethora of unused x1 slots (assuming they aren't too horribly placed) these days.

Ouch. What happened? Did you mean to say plain PCI or PCI-E x1? If PCI, then wow lol.

I'd be afraid to cut anything of significant processing power and value. I wasn't even willing to cut up my 6600 (aside from how it's heatsinks are too big). Also, those better cards would actually miss the bandwidth.

Temps actually dropped by 30%, believe it or not!
