I'm interested in adding to my new dell 630. I'd like to put in an expansion slot in the back for 4 more usb connections and a media card reader to the front.

Dell has a 30 dollar media card reader that connects via usb (internal), but perhaps newegg or the like has something better someone could suggest.
I'd also like to add 4 usb slots to the back via an expansion slot, but I have no idea where to start (both installing and purchasing)

I'm pretty sure I can open it up and plug it into the correct connections (including power, etc...) but getting the right parts for the right case intimidates me.


this is their suggestion:

http://accessories.u...p;mfgpid=195508

http://accessories.u...mp;sku=A2373955 (though this only adds 3)

Case has
PCI: 2 slots
PCIe x1: 1 Slot
PCIe x8: 1 slot
PCIe x16 (Graphics): 2 Slots using 8 PCIe lanes per slot


Thanks a ton, and if additional info is helpful just let me know.
