I noticed the newer the pc's are going the fewer pci slots are available.
on my 720, I am wanting to go with the 730x. I have a pci sound card, tv card and another USB card.
The 730x has 1 pci slot. I would get a soundcard so that leaves me with no card slots left. I assume I could buy pci express cards for my purposes, is this correct?
What make of MB are they using on the 730x
