  • PCI Extension and Graphics Card Hook UP

    I have the Via M10000 motherboard and I built its case to fit into a small space in my car. But now I have an extra sound blaster to hook up to it and an extra nvidia graphics card with dual monitor out to hook up to it. But I need to put both of them about 2 feet away from the motherboard. What can I buy/make to extend the PCI connection to the sound card, and is it possible to hook up an AGP card to the motherboard (also at an extended distance)?

    Edit: I bought 2 PCI riser cards from them. Their order form is ghetto because you have to manually enter the part#, desc, price, etc. but they did ship very quickly.

        Figure out if you need a solid/pcb or ribbon riser, and make sure you understand which way the PCI/AGP connector on the riser card faces when installed..
