I am trying some hours to google some info about PCI Express and i get nothing. Is it a global secret how this works and how can we interface it? I really do not get it.

Well, i think i have something here for you but it is ready maid. If your goal is to use the PCI for a reason then it is perfect for you. If your goal is to learn how to manage the PCI for no reason, then do not bother.

For 48 Euros man this is very good.

I do not really have something in mind and i still would like to ba able to make my own PCI card but i will use this card for another project. It looks fine!
