Hello helponthe.net:

My computer is very old and my boss has offered me a faster one which is being replaced.

Problem is:

All 3 PCIs are being used by a modem, video card and a sound card. I have 1 scsii to use. I need to add my USB somewhere. Which device can be moved or purchased as scsii? If this is possible could you point me in the right direction. This computer sounds over done, but the one I have now is only a Pentium 166. Is there an adapter? I don't know....

I would appreciate your help as always.

You can't purchase a SCSI video card, sound card, or modem. You could purchase an external modem. Do you need sound on that computer? Most work computers don't. You could just remove the sound card altogether. That would free up two PCI slots. Do you need to add a PCI card that has USB ports on it? Are you sure your computer supports USB? What operating system is this computer running? You can really only use USB devices with Windows 98 or later. It doesn't work well if at all with Windows 95. What kind of SCSI device do you need to connect? Is it a scanner or some other device like that? The one card that you cannot remove is the video card, so you really only have two PCI slots to use for other devices.
