You'd better spend your money quickly then FN :-)

It is confusing, it would have been better for the new standard to have a
completely new name.
PCI devices fit PCI slots, I still have a few and you can still buy them.
They are physically and electrically different from PCIe. My current mobos
have both but the next one will probably be PCIe only. PS/2 mouse and
keyboard connections are disappearing as well which is really bad news for
my 3 x IBM keyboards :-(
