In computing terms, system buses are used to connect various components to the motherboard’s core logic and, often, to each other. Modern PCs run with a multitude of high-speed buses ranging from the interconnects between, say, the chipset and the CPU, graphics card, memory, and peripherals.

Updating drivers can sometimes be a bit of a gamble. Will the drivers come with an installer? Will you need to uninstall the old drivers first? Many drivers these days do come with an installer, which simplifies the process dramatically.

Brainboxes IX-400 Intashield PCIe 4 x RS232 Serial Card is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid no-nonsense serial ports I use this 4-port device on a Win7/64bit desktop for testing and configuring dataloggers in a workshop/R&D environment and it's exactly what I needed. I was previously trying to use multiple USB-RS232 converters and occasionally having trouble with COM number auto-assignment and dropouts. No problems with this card. The Brainbox driver's control panel allows you to easily select which COM numbers to allocate to each port, and they just stay allocated. Conveniently, mine are COM1/2/3/4. My only gripe is that the supplied breakout cable is not long enough for me. It's 1 metre which probably suits many users, but I need extension cables to reach equipment spread around a workbench.
