Default PCI-Express Graphics Card

Do PCI-Express graphic cards require a 'special' type of PCI Slot? or will theyu work with a 'normal' PCI Slot?

a pci express slot. pci express is pci express not pci. just try and forget the fact that it starts with pci and try to think of it as something completely different.
