For the purposes of selecting an appropriate interface card for a computer, what are the main differences between PCI Express, PCI-X, ePCI, and PCI cards?


In short, they describe physically (and electrically) different types of PCI cards and ‘slots’, typically found inside a computer. These slots and connectors are used to install various expansion cards, including cards for connecting external storage systems. These different types of PCI slots (PCI Express, PCI-X, ePCI, and PCI) are not interchangeable. Usually, a computer will only provide one or two types of these slots on its motherboard. PCI interface cards must be selected carefully, so that they will properly ‘fit’ inside the desired computer. For example, a PCI-X card will not fit in a PCI Express slot. After confirming the type of PCI slot(s) a particular computer has, be sure that one is vacant so that a new card can be added.
