Hey, i am in a small problem(or big one i think). I recently bought my a graphic card (geforce 8400GS PCI express). I looked up my motherboard specs beforehand to make sure it was compatible.
Motherboard
Intel Corporation DQ43AP
I asked at the forums and people said it is fine and a PCI express x16 card would work.
I opened up the case to install the card and the slot for the PCI x16 was missing. There were marking saying x16 but card holder. I have attached a picture. Is there any way i can get a pci express slot if there is such a thing or an adapter to convert pci to pci express. If not is replacing the motherboard the only option i have?
Thanks.

 
to the op..intel may have made the mb but if it for a dell or hp it not going to be a stock mb. most of these vendors have asus or other vendor to make boards for them. sometimes there missing slots or there wired for there own power supplys.
