ONE PCI Slot - Accommodate it with Sound or Video ?
Looking at Motherboard options, a good deal of the mini-ATX units feature just One PCI slot (to keep them compact).
So whats the norm for filling this slot? - or does it come down to ones individual requirements?
For example add a dedicated PCI graphics card, to make your Windows (or Linux) based frontend menu system faster and more efficient.
Or, add a Sound Card, that provides alot more scope for great sound clarity + outputs for multi-component sound.
Suppose you *could* instead get a decent external USB soundcard, leaving the PCI slot available for Video anyway. Having the best of both worlds.
All feedback welcomed. :)
