Depends on what you're adding. I prefer P55's with more than 1 PCIe {x16}, you cannot CF/SLI nor add a PCIe x4 e.g. RevoDrive, etc.

1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16
(The PCI Express x16 slot conforms to PCI Express 2.0 standard.)
4 x PCI Express x1 slots
2 x PCI slots

Don't know without you placing links to the Firewire & eSATA Card(s). If they are ALL PCI Express x1 then no problem. BTW - Most are PCI, and some PCIe.

4 x PCI Express x1 slots {short}
2 x PCI slots {long}
