Default Pci

If you have three PCI expansion slots, do you need three PCI buses on the motherboard?

AFAIK, just one PCI bus. Why do you ask?

Some more reading- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_bus

I have seen a couple of computers with more than one, but they were like 286's and such.

As long as you've got a fairly slow card, it shouldn't bottleneck too bad. You probably could get a significant ppd boost using one.

Not the most cost-effective method though...PCI cards are expensive for what you get.

ppd?

And i hate not having dual 2.0 slots, UGH

not sure if its worth getting a new Mobo for 130$ and swapping it in, and worry about bios issues with the new mobo and my system, or try to get decent performance for a PCI card : /
