My PC Windows 7 Pro has a HP IPM87-MP motherboard. I have to buy a internal PCI modem card. on the motherboard I see a PCIE X16 slot, but when I Google its showing as a video card.

If someone can please advice what type of modem card to buy I would appreciate it. Can't have USB modem as that won't work with our time track system only a Internal modem will do.

Thanks

Thanks for replying, just to make sure I have attached a image of my motherboard. the slot you have suggested is the smaller one correct. I labeled the slots in red.

Yes, the smaller slot is a PCIe x1 slot.    Note that an x1 modem will work fine in either that or the larger x16 slot (although there's no reason to use the larger slot).
