expanding PT HD 3 via mamga

Okay. First off, thanks for viewing and for any guidance that you might be able to offer. (DISCLAIMER- I did do a gearslutz search but didn't find any answers)

I am currently running Pro Tools 8 on an HD 3 setup, installed on my mac pro (A1186 model) w/OS 10.6.8.
I would like to take advantage of the low, aftermarket prices I'm seeing and buy a few accel cards.

All my PCI-E slots are currently in use. I'm wondering if I can use a Magma expansion chassis to bump up my accel arsenal.

Question 1: How can I use a magma chassis to increase my power? (or can I at all?) Every magma chassis I see thats for sale is a PCI-x slotted unit or a thunderbolt unit. Thunderbolt isn't an option for my system, my mac doesn't have that technology.

If anyone with experience on this matter can offer assistance, it would be greatly appreciated!

Kind Regards,
Rhyme
