Pavilion p6804

Best Buy has the p6804 on sale this week, in their specs it says it has 2 PCI slot. But on the hp support site for the model, it only shows 2 PCI-E slot and no PCI.  Which is correct?

Hello mroctober7377, It appears that the motherboard for the p6804 has 2 PCI Express x1 slots.

 

Many times, stores and other outlets make errors in their specifications of the systems they sell.

 

Here  is a link to the specifications for this system.

 

Notice the 2XPCIE black slots in the lower left corner of the motherboard.

 

I does not show a PCIE video card slot, but has an onboard video device instead.

Re: Pavilion p6804

Does that mean you cannot upgrade to a better video card on the HP Pavilion p6804 desktop?

Hello ghudson, After looking at the motherboard, it would appear that you cannot add a discrete video card.

 

If you look at the motherboard just above the 2 PCIe x1 black slots, you will see the 4 lines of solder points where the PCIe video card slot would  normally be located. It shows no slot, just the solder points.
