Default pcie 1x

Why is there always a few pcie x1 slots on a motherboard? i have never seen a card or something that fits into them. Why not just have more pci ports instead of having 3pciex1 on a board and only 2 pci's?

ya, most Asus high-end boards like the p5n32-e SLI also use that, because theres no onboard sound, they give you those cards, and tell you to plug it in
