Default I need a suggestion..

I have an open pci-express x1 slot, I'd like to put something in it.
Is there anything particularly useful that I can put in my pci-express x1 slot?

Thanks.

I was thinking a tv tuner.. but if there is something more useful [im a gamer, but all suggestions might appeal to me]

A NIC card or Hardware RAID controler, maybe some more USB or firewire ports..

why do you want to put something in the port?

There really isn't a lot of options other then a gpu and the things STE listed.

If your computer works, and you don't have any basic needs, then save that money for later.
