    PCI I/O Card HELP!

    I recently bought a new PC and the motherboard does not have any Parallel or Serial cable ports. I have just received a developer board (Casira) which needs these connections. Can anybody recommend a cheaper than water PCI card that provides this - i know i have seen them but a web search brings up insane prices.

    Thanks
