                                                                      It's scary that a tech channel doesn't have a pci server board around lol.. there's still some in existence out there :D

                                                                      LOL i feel old.. once upon a time i had dual voodoo 5's i modded to run quad gpu's...

                                                                      Those usb extenders have a very short range. They're great for adding a very small gpu on a 1x slot for a server that doesn't really need video except for occasional terminal use, and you want all the pcie lanes free for other cards. I"m surprised you got that good of frames out of them.

                                                                      at least no one hunted down an old FU-FME drive lol

GND, VBUS, D+, D-, TxA, TxB, RxA, RxB, and "ID," but the TX/RX are both capable of transferring Serial data past at least eSATA....It's the SAME transmission of high-speed serial data through a UART......easyy one.
