As stated above, is PCI-E a whole new slot, or can i buy a PCI-E card and plug it into the PCI slot on my mobo?

Take the backplate off and turn it around backwards and see how well it works.

Don't take my advice :p

I think you probably would kill both the card and the PCI slot if you did that. :)
