    I love it
  3. cool thanks for the replies, does it have alot of pci slots for expandability? also with an i7 870 will this work well?
  4. 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
  5. im using a sapphire 4870 and wanted to add a wireless pci card and a firewire card and esata
    will i have room for this stuff? thanks!
  6. 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}
  7. Best answer
    Rosewill RC-220 = PCI {long} $22
    ADS Tech PYRO = PCI {long} $30
    ASUS PCE-N13 = PCIe {short} $28
