My MSI-Mainboard K8D Master 3 has 3 PCI-X slots, this is NOT "PCI Express"

They have the same form like the 32/33 PCI slots but only longer

PCI-X	=	64 Bit 33/66/100/133 MHz

On my MSI I have tow white and one gree PCX-X slot, which are 64Bit and 
33/66 for the white and 33/66/100/133 for the green one.

The slot for PCI Express is an other form as the PCI/PCI-X
