    PCIe cards useful for editing capabilities?

    Indio22 Level 1

      Other than cards used to add RAID or additional hard drives, are there any other PCIe cards people find useful for video editing or effects work?  The reason I ask – I am considering two different motherboards for my PC upgrade to i7-4770K.  One will effectively have no free PCIe slots when the build is done, while the other will have one free PCIe slot (an x4).  I am not including the two secondary x16 sized slots on these boards in my count, because they cannibalize the primary video card slot, so I would rather not use them.

       

      Anyway, currently I don’t use any additional PCIe cards for editing.  So I am not sure if I should care if there are any extra empty PCIe slots available.
