Adding Firewire Card

@rokenlacked , welcome to the forum.

 

Here is the Motherboard Specifications page for the computer.  If you look at the section titled "Expansion Slots" you will see there are no PCI Express x1 slots for add-on cards.  Therefore, you won't be able to add a Firewire or any other cards.

Adding Firewire Card

@Old_geekster hey, since I was asking that because I wanted to connect an audio interface to my pc, do you know if there is any other way to connect it without a firewire port?

@rokenlacked, I am not certain what you mean by an audio interface, but the best options you would have are using either USB 2.0 or USB 3.0.  Here is an article that may help you solve your problem.  Please let me know if this helps.
