No, you cant add an APG slot to the motherboard. Most computer cases use the ATX style motherboard. When you look at a motherboard you have to make sure that it will take the current CPU. Also make sure that the RAM bus isnt less then the current RAM, its ok if the RAM bus speed on the new motherboard is higher. Hope that this helps.
