          I do not understand your Posting.

           

          You can use video cards and audio cards. ( i prefer the USB audio as it takes less effort)

          The THOL (Tested Hardware and OS list) http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s3000ah/sb/CS-023167.htm show video card that hhave been test to be compatable with the mother board.

           

          I do not understand your "inverse form"

           

          If you have a old 5v PCI card it is keyed to not fit and will not work in the board.

          If you plug in in backwards in the mother board so that the video connector is on the inside of the chassis, you will destroy the card and likley the mother board also.

            I read the manual, there is  some compatible video card that can use, thanks. For the audio card, I have now one compatible with the mother board PCI-32/33.

            sorry if you don´t understand me very well, english  is not mi natal language.
