From the looks of things, you should have open PCI Express slots..

I would recommend something like one of these Intel PCI Express Gigabit Server NIC cards*

Intel® PRO/1000 PT	        Gigabit Ethernet	PCI Express*	Copper	Single port
Intel® PRO/1000 PT Dual Port	Gigabit Ethernet	PCI Express*	Copper	Dual port	
Intel® PRO/1000 PT Quad Port	Gigabit Ethernet	PCI Express*	Copper	Quad port

Absolutley you should be able to add additional NIC cards.. more than one or a Multiport card if you so desire.
