(The OS is Win2K and Win XP Pro. All the memory banks are occupied.)

In ATX form factor, with standard ATX motherboard, is it possible to expand memory with a PCI memory interface card?

PCI memory interface card will plug into the motherboard, and the memory modules plug into the PCI memory interface card. (I think this can be done in NLX, but I am not sure in ATX).

If this can be done in ATX form factor, please give me a link where I can buy such PCI memory interface card or something alternatively similar.

I believe that Gigabyte made such a card. But because the PCI bus is so much slower than the memory bus (about a 100 times slower), you can't use the added memory on the PCI card as RAM, but rather as a small but fast hard drive.
