Default PCI Slots

I'm pondering to get a striker board.


It comes with:

"PCI Express x16 2 x PCI Express x16 slot,support NVIDIA SLI technology,at full x16,x16 speed(blue)
1 x PCI Express x16, at x8 speed

PCI Express x1 1

PCI Slots 2 "

Does this come with 6 PCI slots in all?

And what are PCI Express 1 slots for?

See my dilemma is..

I plan on getting two 8800 GTX or R600s

Getting an Exhaust blower

A sound Card

A TV tuner
and a Raid controller

Will this fit?

I'm assuming PCI-E 1 is compatible / the same as PCI slots.

Help. When you can.

2xpci-express at x16 each = 8800gtx's or r600's
tv turner = pci
raid controller= pci or pci x1
sound card= pci

so you could get a pci x1 raid controller and use the 2 pci slots for the tv turner and sound card.

Not if you only get one raptor.

In a nutshell, a raid controller is for combining two hd's into one.

It could be useful for only one drive if the mobo's sata only supports 150 speeds instead of 3.0gb/s, but dont worry too much about that.
