here is a picture I hope this helps

Thank you for your patience. It appears that your free slots are the PCI, PCIe x16 and PCIe x1.

Based on a huge number of positive reviews and better specifications as documented by the LAN card manufacturer, your best LAN card option for heavy gaming use is "Intel Gigabit CT PCI-E Network Adapter".

Here is the link from Amazon:

If you prefer to have dual LAN part, this is recommended for gaming computers:

I hope that helped.
