Guys,

Been searching the net for some explanation on what a daughterboard is, to my knowledge its a extension of a motherboard that will allow more PCI slots etc?
Excuse my limited knowledge but if someone could shed some light in 'leymen' terms would be great.

Thanks!

"A daughterboard (or daughter board , daughter card , or daughtercard ) is a circuit board that plugs into and extends the circuitry of another circuit board. The other circuit board may be the computer's main board (its motherboard ) or it may be another board or card that is already in the computer, often a sound card. The term is commonly used by manufacturers of wavetable daughterboards that attach to existing sound cards."
