Default PCI-Express x1?

What can you actually put in a Pci-Express x1 slot? I know all your sound cards, etc go in the Pci slot but what actually goes in the Pci-Express x1 slot?
It might sound like a stupid question I know but I've just never known the answer.

That DDR thing is neat! Does that memory function as RAM or just some kind of external memory? And does it communicate with the system as fast?

It just shows as RAM - it needs drivers to work though.

Alot of older servers have these - two of those, with 1GB in each slot - your rolling.

You can get them as a PCI interface as well. But, you have to have a certain amount of motherboard RAM installed, before you can use them, and all the sticks have to be identical.

Make sure you're not talking about iRAM. These stuff works as hard drives. It take 5 seconds and you're ready to work.
