These things price range are ~$200 , so I don't think this one with a PCI-E should be more expensive..

I am thinking of buying one of these for my Work PC

Yep, Zotac are great. But dont forget Point of View. I just bought THEIR version POV/ION330 yesterday, because they already had PCIe and two SODIMM slots (for even lower power memory, and recycling laptop upgrades). Unfortunately, no wifi onboard, but as a mini-server, its going to be wired.
