Flex PCI extender in Canada?
Wasn't really sure where to put this, but figured it fits in best with HTPC / small case applications.

Anybody out there have a good Canadian resource for HTPC / ITX supplies? I'm looking for a ribbon cable PCI slot extender similar to the one listed here.... LinITX.com - PCI Flexi Riser Card - Left Facing - 7cm Cable

but for $30-$70

ebay have them for $6 bucks and $7 shipping :ph34r:

and are you using a passive PCI card?

What's a "passive" PCI card?

I want to be able to run the cable between two of the 9600GSO cards so that I can install my PCI audio card..... ;)

:doh: :doh: :doh:

when you saw your first post, i was think that you were making a Mini ITX PC :doh:

I was asking if you were gonna use a passived cooled PCI GPU :bleh:

and from what your saying is that you want to use that poor man's folding rig as a HTPC? :ph34r:

your gonna need at least 150mm for the extender. :ph34r:

I dont' want to use it as an htpc, I just want to get my Striker 7.1 back for streaming music to my amp. (and yeah, the one I linked to wouldn't be long enough......) ;)
