Correct, my bad.
Thanks for catching that.
4250 does not support Dolby True HD or DTS Master. 5450 does support it.
Since I don't have the 5450 version right now, I cannot diffinitively answer that. However, I suspect it is similar to what they did last time. If so, then, no, you cannot add the 5450 later.
Basically, they have 2 board versions, one with the MXM slot and one without. If you order without the MXM card, then they ship you the version without the slot on board. To get the MXM slot, you must order the version with the discrete card from the start.
