    You'll get your answer from simply looking at the size of the pci-x card and then looking at the size of the pci-e slot.

    You do the maths.

    You obviously know what your talking about, couldn't you just answer him?


    Anyway, the answer is No. PCI-X is a faster version of PCI used mostly in servers. PCIe is the new standard replacing PCI and PCI-X.

    I personally have never seen a pci-x card so thats why I supplied that information.

    It's not that difficult to do a little reading then come to a conclusion, i just didnt have the time to do all that myself so I gave the info I found to the op.
