so i'm wondering if i'm just blind or does it not exist
You've got an OEM machine, right? (Dell, HP, Compaq, etc)
Even if the chipset (965G in your case) supports PCI-e slots, the manufacturer doesn't have to put the slot there. If you look close you can see the solder point where the slot would go. They left it off to cut costs. This is pretty common with OEM manufacturers...the one I'm using now it like that.
