I see that USB3 PCi cards are now available. My PC is around 3 years old. Does anyone know whether the cards work on any motherboard with a PCi slot?

I guess they would, the only thing is, what do you think you'll need one for? If you have eSata i don't see a point as most USB3.0 HDDs will run on eSata at the same speed

what are the specs of the PC?

I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.

yes, if you have a pci slot, a pci usb3.0 card will work .

Just make sure the slots are the same type of pci slot.
