Expansion slots

Expansion slots allow users to add features and capabilities to their computers, such as memory, sound cards, video cards, faxmodems, and other input and output devices. For example, a user can increase the amount of RAM by adding a memory card to an expansion slot or can add an I/O (input/output) device such as a CD-ROM, using an expansion slot.
