I couldn't find the model # you posted, but it should have pci slots. The pci-e is for video cards.

The number seems to be from the HP Pavilion Slimline s5000 series....possibly the s5107c? Here's the motherboard it uses:

It has one PCI, two PCI-e x1 & one PCI-e x16. The x16 slot is used for video cards.

Thanks for the feedback.
The unit is a slimline s5170c. The only open slot is the pci-16 slot, so I opted for a USB receiver and that solved my problem.
Thanks again. This is a great help board.
