    Omg my first pc build (circa 2004) I used that exact two fan blue "lite up" "pci card". What do you want I was 13 I just wanted a computer that glowed. I returned a motherboard because it didn't match the port holes on my case because I didn't know the motherboard shield popped out.

    Those USB gpu's inserts are for GPU crypto mining, you can add more gpu's per slot. Stacking 4 1080 tis would be difficult if you put them In their slot.

    Umm the weirdest PCI-E is a PC on a PC with the single board PCI-E computer. And it works, but the two PCs can't communicate without an Ethernet cable because, well that would be silly to expect something plugged into a PCI-E bus to communicate with the host. It uses the power, and thats it. Because you want two PCs in one without using a blade server.

    • Marshall Ashworth
      Marshall Ashworth 5 days ago

      and also not limited to this weird pci-e & pci type slot, you can get a more modern version on aliexpress thats just a single pci-e slot, but of course since you're looking for aliexpress heres the 486 & 586 version of the card (haven't bought one of these ones though) :,searchweb201602_5_10065_10068_10547_319_10059_10884_317_10548_10887_10696_321_322_10084_453_10083_454_10103_10618_10307_537_536,searchweb201603_52,ppcSwitch_0&algo_expid=99cb174d-9a16-454e-bf1b-f2aa856b723e-1&algo_pvid=99cb174d-9a16-454e-bf1b-f2aa856b723e&transAbTest=ae803_5
