Before I open the case, can someone state what motherboard expansion slots might be available on a recent 530N? Everything now is onboard (LAN/SND/VID). I have an extra PCI based, 5 port USB card and need to know if there is a PCI slot.

i think the easiest thing to do would be to open up the case and have a look for yourself

its not that hard...
