Mac Pro 1,1 and USB 3.0

Sorry if this has been asked before, but here goes...


I have a Mac Pro 1,1 which is still running like a champ. However, I was wondering if I can add a USB 3.0 PCI card?

Ive tried googling it, but nothing has really come up.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

----------

Never mind


Just checked out MacSales, and they have one thats compatible with my mac.

apparently the NEC drivers (patched lacie as indicated above) work:

or if you have a lacie drive:

however not too sure if they offer VLI (via) support natively, or through a patched kext, etc.

If I can find a method to get the vli chipset working, that would be pure gold.
