    PCI express?

    I have a question about these new videocards that are comming out.
    If i have a regular PCI slot,will the pci express videocards work in them? I just purchased a new computer not even a year ago, don't want to have to buy a new motherboard just because of newer videocards.
    right now i am on http://www.giga-byte.com/Motherboard/Products/Products_GA-8IG1000 Pro.htm
    and would like to keep it that way. $250 for a videocard it enough anyway. muchless the other $100 on a mobo. Might was well build another whole box.
