I been mining on two PCs 900mh/s
Was wondering if there is any way to cram another GPU into my

 GA-P55M-UD2 Motherboard. I"m running just one GPU in it now. a PCI x16 slot so that one is taken.

1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16 (PCIEX16) (The PCIEX16 slot conforms to PCI Express 2.0 standard.)(taken)
1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x4 (PCIEX4)(open)
2 x PCI slots (blocked by MY Current video card)

I herd you can get a adapter to make the PCI slots PCI 16 slots is this true? And a ribbon cable to move the Video card outside or away from the other PCI slots to free up room.

EDIT: NVM found the info i needed Thanks guys

I wouldn't bother with trying to turn the PCI into a PCIe slot, the final cost is about the same as a new mobo that has multiple PCIe slots. You can run a riser cable to move a GPU outside the case. You can look around the marketplace here as some people are selling some (you need a x16>x16 riser) or you can go to http://cablesaurus.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=1&product_id=9. Every single one of my GPU's is on a riser cable and there are no compatability or performance issues.
