Hi

I have a motherboard currently that i would like to add a few hardware elements on it to make it better - specifically a network card, however i am not too sure which slots by name they are.

Can you please identify by colour the slots? please see image attached for reference.

Thanks,

the blue slot is a PCIexpress slot, used mostly for video cards
all info needed is found here :  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express
if you post the motherboard model -  the manufacturer specs will also identify the slots

There are 3 pci express x 1 and 1 pci express x 16 slots. The x16 slot is usually used by graphic cards so you'd probably install your NIC into the x1 slots.
