I have just re-built my machine (New motherboard), and want to add a PCI-e card, I note that there are 2 slots marked as PCI-e. One that has a very short (about 2.5cm) slot and a longer one (about 10cm).
Are they for different types of board , different speeds or ?.
Help please

Thanks Rossgolf for a speedy reply.
It's looks as if I have the x1 and the x16 option, for which I assume the x16 is the better choice.

Now to find a card at a reasonable price.
