Yes I can. But I think if you put in a graphics card the pcie x1 card will be blocked.

Good for you. Just make sure that all the parts are compatible.

If you also want to upgrade the hold motherboard include the card reader slots, this one will be fine too. It can upgrade your card readers and add 3 more USB 3.0 slots to your motherboard.

It also needs PCI-E x1 slot as the PCI-E expansion card needs.

Yes that is good too.
Also you might wanna get a pci card with Sata 3 slots too.
