Is This PCI-Express Card Suitable for My Motherboard?


Recommended Posts


My computer has this motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-H61M-DS2 DVI (rev. 1.0)
This is the specification page for that motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-H61M-DS2 DVI (rev. 1.0) - Specifications

In the specifications Expansion Slots section it says this motherboard has,


1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16
(The PCI Express x16 slot conforms to PCI Express 3.0 standard.)

I am thinking of purchasing this PCI Express card:  Inateck 2-Port PCI-E USB 3.0 Express Card, Mini PCI-E USB 3.0 Hub Controller Adapter, with Internal USB 3.0 20-PIN Connector

Can someone please tell me if this USB 3.0 card is suitable for, compatible with, my motherboard?

Got the card. Fitted fine. Installed drivers from the packaged CD -- d*** wouldn't work. Went to the website, downloaded and installed latest drivers -- started to work fine.

I just backed up all my data partitions using my new USB3 ports and considerably faster than using USB2. Happy now. Thanks for the help. :thumbup
