I may not need pci express either, but depending on the pci card (whether it's 1.0 or 2.0) it may or may not work in an express slot. And really, I don't need an extra variable to troubleshoot in the case I have an issue.
I appreciate the windv advice. I've seen lots of references to it but haven't looked into it.
I guess I'm stubborn. I'll use crappier software just because I paid good money for it.
Anyway, thanks for the help. If no other comments by end of day, I'll go ahead and get this card.
