    The expansion ( or external bus) allows cards and devices to communicate
    with the motherboard and it's components, almost as if they were the
    motherboard itself. There are various flavours of external buses, and you
    can see them on your motherboard. The most common ones are: ISA/EISA
    (coloured black, -outdated ) PCI ( coloured white ) and AGP ( coloured
    brown) The connectors that you see carry power, some connect to the address
    and data bus and other are used for system resources such as the clock
    signal, IRQ, I/O addresses and DMA interfaces. Think of them as a link from
    the motherboard to the cards you put in..
