Default Need Help

I am going to buy a USB 2.0 card for my outdated backup computer. However I dont know what slots I have available or how to tell them apart. Is there any program that can tell me what ports/slots I have open for cards? Thanks

all you need is a pci slot. open your case, do you see a white slot with nothing in it? if so, you have one available

Do these PCI ports come with older computers? This is a P3 1ghz computer. Is most likely 3-4 years old I believe. Its just my backup computer for storing images, and will be my film scanning computer. My film scanner uses USB 2.0, so I want to upgrade this to take advatage of the speed the scanner has. Thanks for your answers.

Okay, so any white slot is PCI? I'll try to look for a picture of a PCI slot before cracking the case open. Thanks
