Scroll down and look at " Expansion / Connectivity" then "Slots" -> 2 x PCI slots From the top down on your motherboard your slots are: 1. PCI-E 1x 2. PCI-E 16x v3 3. PCI 4. PCI-E 16x v2 5. PCI 6. PCI-E 16x v2 Also, unless you need that particular model for some reason, I would just get this Rosewill one that is also Gigabit: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

One more question should I be using a PCI-Express NIC card? The reason I am going with PCI is because it looks like if I try to install a PCI-express nic card into the top slot it will hit my CPU fan.

Joe No you wont see a difference unless you were trying to do 10Gb. Anything Gigabit or lower shouldn't saturate even the old standard PCI port. Also, FYI, you can plug a 1x PCI card into a 16x port, it won't hurt it. m 0 l netfire17 October 17, 2013 9:17:55 AM Thanks a lot, iknowhowtofixit m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
