Question PCI slots

I want to know if there are different versions of PCI like 2.1 or 2.2 and if there are then how to find out which one my motherboard has?
Any responses will be appreciated

There are different voltage types and different sizes of PCI slots. You will probably find that you have the standard length 3.3v PCI slot. What type of motherboard do you have?

I beleive that just means that it will work on newer (2.2 PCI) and older (2.1 PCI) motherboards/chipsets.
