It looks like all you have for slots are 4 full length PCI-Express expansion
slots, which is interesting.  I'm afraid you're out of luck.

Also makes me that much more convinced I want to go Firewire for adding an
Audio interface to my G5 2x2.

Did you change OS versions as well when you upgraded?  Maybe the slowdown is
something to do with Rosetta?  It seems a bit strange.
