yes, the pcie slots will take smaller pcie cards.

Attached is a pdf from Dell that explains why:

In case you have trouble finding the information in the document, it's on page 7:

Table 3 shows the interoperability requirements of standard
and low-profile PCI Express cards.
A x1 card can be used in all four system board slots: x1, x4, x8, and
x16. When a x1 card is inserted into a higher-bandwidth slot, the link layer negotiates the link down to the x1
data transfer rate.

Hi,

When you say small, do you mean that it is a low-profile or half-height card or do you mean the connector is PCIe x1 or x4?

If the former, then usually, these have PCIe x16 connectors anyway, it's only the bracket you might need to change.

If the latter, then I believe the question has already been answered.

What is the model/brand etc. of the card in question?

Regards,


RobMobility.
