EXPANSION CARDS

Expansion cards (also known as expansion boards, controllers or
adapters) are small self-contained circuit boards which extend the
capabilities of the computer. For example, a graphics card could
provide more specialised video functions than those offered by the
on-board video system, or a modem card could provide a
connection to the Internet via a telephone line.
Your computer can accept two basic types of expansion card:
ISA or Industry Standard Architecture cards
PCI or Peripheral Component Interconnect cards
You don't need to understand what these terms mean, but before
adding a card to your computer you will need to know whether it is
ISA or PCI and possibly its physical dimensions.
The following diagram shows the layout of the six expansion slots in
your server.
