So far we did not break PCI-e sound card barrier in DOS (with Win98+ its working fine), but i just for fun tried PCI videocard (ATI MACH 64VT2 1 MB) in PCI-E to PCI bridge (Asmedia chipset pci-e to 2x pci - i probably have unupdated version) and Gigabyte X58 MB and its working..
So you can safe / multiply precious PCI slots, or at least have possibility to choose between pci and pci-e slot for video card.. of course there is cable / space hassle.. because you need microatx mb in ATX case, to use not use case card slots.. or if are using standard ATX mb, you need big case with 8+ card slots.. or need to have bridge outside of case (some nice box like for external gpus could be made, from case its just USB cable), or inside in case and vga cable inside too..

I created special thread for PCIe-PCI, PCI-ISA slots back plates, bridges, multipliers etc..:
