Got a PC from a friend. The PC is a Dell, it has a 3.00 GHz Dual Core Processor, 4 RAM slots making it upgradable to 8 GB of RAM if I see fit.



In the Picture attached you can see for yourself it has:
1 x1 PCIe slot
1 x8 PCIe slot
2 PCI-X 64/100/133 slots
1 PCI 32/33 slot

I have been asking around to find out what the PCI-X 64/100/133 Slots are used for and I can not seem to figure it out. So I come here now seeking some insight on what these slots are used for or what I can use them for.

Thanks.

My System


they are not PCI-X slots. They are 64 bit PCI (as opposed to the shorter 32 bit slot). Specifically they are 3.3 volt slots. (note the position of the key blocks). They will also accept 3.3 volt 32 bit PCI cards.
