Although the EY855 is considered a SFF PC, it has everything that an average user with average needs might want. Graphics, audio and other components are built in the motherboard. These include USB 2.0 and FireWire connections, as well as 5.1 audio with optical input and output connectors. Dual network interfaces support 10/100 and Gigabit Ethernet.
The only elements needed to get the EY855 up and running, once purchased, are the CPU, RAM modules and disk drives. Because the system is a SFF PC, this means you'll find room for only two 3.5" and a single 5.25" drive enclosures. If you want to add other interface cards, you'll find only two sockets for same on the motherboard: one each for AGP and PCI. This provides such modest capabilities to extend or expand functionality that the system offers.
