    pci or 1x pci express for rs232 card

    Ok so I have a dual pci serial card now. works great.. plus 1 serial on mobo... so I have 3.. and all is good..

    however if I do the electrical monitoring.. with 2 units (still waiting for someone to reply on how to do 2 units...)
    but im gonna guess that I will need 2 more serial ports.... thus I will need 5...

    I have found a 6 port pci serial card for like $30 shipped on ebay... or
    6 port pci express 1x card for $45 shipped...

    which would you do?

    here is the mobo I ordered... i could go pci express.... and use onboard for alarm... keeping 3 of 6 free.. and still have the dual card available.... for 5 total serials for future expansion....

    this is all going on a whs ta boot!!!!

    I purchased an 8-port serial card on ebay a while ago & it works great. However, it requires hardware connections at the computer.

    I've started toying with the Quatech 4-port serial servers and they appear to be very promising to relocate my serially-connected hardware.
