    I don't know if it would work or not, but it won't cause any harm to try it. If it doesn't work I would suggest buying THIS

    Right, PCI is PCI and I just asked someone and they confirmed that it will work. But you're going to want to make sure that its a USB 2.0 card or all it will be good for is an Apple keyboard and mouse.

    I am not going to use it for that.. I am just going to use the card for USB game controller and a jump drive.... nothing really advanced.. unless I get a breakout box for my audio to complament my studio....
