If anyone here has experenc ewith Dell modding…
I am currently modding an Optiplex GX280 out of the original case into customized case. I have some questions regarding the PCI looking Riser Card.
BTW, the board I have is the Small Desktop System Board
Is this also a regular PCI slot, can I place regular PCI cards there, for example say a better sound card from the SB series, obviously I would disable onboard Audio.
This PCI-like Riser slot has a Riser extension, which provides two PCI slots at a perpendicular angle, which face an awkward direction when fitting into a regular style case. I was thinking to get PCI flexible extender’s, and use added peripheral cards that way.
–Also, how long of a Flex Extender can this board support if anyone knows, because the website where I am looking has them in lenghts of 3", 4", 5" & 8" bnut the 8inch and the 5inch flex cable have a small warning that this lenght might not work with all devices.
The devices I am considering is a Creative SB Live audigy an a TV Card, anyone have any experience with this?
