There exist PCIe -> PCI converters, the one my local dealer offers 
converts one PCIe to 4xPCI. (Price-point is about 150 EUR IIRC)

AFAIK there are no specific limitations to which PCI-card can be used in 
that thing.

So it shouldn't be a problem to get enough PCI-Slots even with recent 
mainboard that mainly have 3/3 PCIe/PCI and last but not last 1 PEG.

wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated, 
cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
