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.
