    Want to see if win 10 PC I am lookin has expansion slots for pci-e.


    Good Morning all,

    I am looking at a replacement desktop for my Win 7 machine and am trying to find out if it has expansion slots for pci-e, but can find no definitive answer.

    I am going to need to purchase an additional LAN card for monitoring my amplifier in my stereo via eithernet.

    The computer in question is the full size desktop Dell Optiplex 9020 Quad i7 Tower Windows 10 Pro unit.

    The card I am looking at is:

    Figured I need to ask the experts.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated !

    A search for 'Optiplex 9020' found this pdf file which says the answer depends on whether you have the:
    Minitower (MT), Small Form Factor (SFF), Ultra Small Form Factor (USFF) or Micro motherboards. My guess would be the MT (the largest?), so the answer would be yes - but you could open it up and have a look!

    Yes, the MT.

    I read the PDF, but cannot find anywhere, including the PDF about extension slots
