Looking for a AM4 ATX Motherboard with PCI Slot. Following two models have it:

1) Asus Prime B350 Plus
2) MSI B350 Gaming Plus
Asus is what I would prefer. Anyone willing to part with theirs, please PM me.

But does it have a PCI slot? I don't think any X370 ever released with a PCI slot. Biostar had one but it never released in India.

Any board that doesn't support PCI natively will require a bridge chip. I don't think there are any ryzen boards available in India with a PCI slot.

There is however a coffee lake board that has PCI which is available locally for a reasonable price.

Since your primary application is for running an RME sound card, why don't you simply build a second PC based on a used sandybridge board + CPU for that purpose? It'll be dirt cheap and the Z68/H67 chipsets are the last ones to have native PCI.

I did consider an option to build a second PC, however space is a huge constraint. I have a space dedicated for audio alone and that too now feels crowded. Also, explaining second PC to wife is a battle that i know I'll lose.
