Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. How do I find out whether I have a PCI or PCI Express fitting in my computer. It's running windows 7 and no matter which icon I click I don't seem to be able to get that bit of system info.

    I can't tell you for Win7 but in XP you would right click my computer, go to properties then hardware: Device Manager. Under 'System Devices' it should list the components. I expect it will list a PCI 'E' if you've an enhanced socket on our mother board.

    If Win7 doesn't have anything similar then try googling your motherboard and checking the manual.

    Edit: Link to how to do this in Win7
