    What to use in spare pci slot?

    I have a new epia m and am trying to decide what to use the pci slot for. I guess I have the follow 2 things in mind but don't know what else to consider.

    Wireless Lan card
    Sound card (is the onboard that bad?)

    Any suggestions?

    I recommend a air card. Air has many advantages.

    1) It's cheap. It isn't going to break the bank.
    2) It's uses very little power. This means you don't need such a big power supply.
    3) It means you don't have to think too hard. On most motherboards, all pci slots generally come pre-populated with air. So you don't have to take your pc apart, and you don't have to think what to put in there.

    (Sorry, couldn't resist).
