PCIe slots are used to connect graphics cards, sound cards, other interface cards and some SSDs to PC motherboards. This video explains everything you need to know about PCIe slots, including PCIe slot sizes, lanes, versions and compatibility. Also included is a quick history of motherboard expansion slots from ISA to PCIe.

The video I mention at the end about PC motherboards is now uploaded here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sewt2...
