Intel Will No Longer Be Supporting PCI.

Starting next year, with H77, Z75, and the Z77 chipsets, Intel will no longer include a PCI controller on their chipsets. After 20 years of service the end of PCI is coming of age.

Another PA'er. Nice.

I can't say I'd miss PCI. When's the last time anyone had to use a PCI card?

Why finally??? Many people have not moved into the Now generation and for them there is still a need for PCI slots. I'm sure for the people that have the latest and greatest equipment there is no need, but you are in the minority.

I have a Linksys WMP600N and a Linksys WMP300N. Both are PCI and they work great.

I am not looking forward (happily) to buying 2 new TV Tuner Cards just to get PCIe.
But it is what it is and that's all there is.

It'll be 4 years, at least, before my current flagship PC gets demoted to PVR status !

Windows 7 64-Bit not supporting wireless card
Okay, so I'm using Windows 7 64-Bit. It's flawless, and a bit of a show off, seeming as it already had all of the necessary drivers for all my PC components pre-installed. :P One issue is the network card. I had a Netgear WPN311 card before, which I couldn't find the right drivers for, so I...
