    They use to have these expansion slots that would give multiple pci or at the
    time isa slots to those computers that were limited with one or 2 slots. Do
    they still make them now for pci slots" Anyone know?

  2. Good question. Ever since computers started shipping with Windows XP
    or ME, the PCI/Isa feature has been missing in many models. The hassle
    of configuring ISA cards was probably too big a hassle for msft and
    the computer manufacturers. You might try computers that came with
    Windows 98. My CPQ 4784 came with ISA slots, but this guy is a real
    dog, with a sub-GHz processor. Check the manufacturer's website.

    I phoned them and was in a state of shock when they started quoteing
    prices...like $892 and in that vicinity. Just for expansion slots? At that
    price its worth buying a new computer and make sure the MB has all those extra
    slots. Can' t imagine anyone paying that price.

    They are primarily for applications requiring a lot of expansion slots, such
    as ProTools which bases its power on having multitudes of DSP cards working
    together. But you are right, if all you need is one or two more slots, buy a
    new motherboard.
