    Hey, can I add a pci usb card? I have 2 cards, one 2600 and one 8800 - early 2008, so pci express is taken. Would I have to remove one of the graphic cards?

    Thanks

    No I don't think you need to remove your graphics card to use a PCI USB card.
    Mac Sales aka OWC has them for sale.

    You can't use PCI at ALL.

    They MUST be PCIe. It ISN'T backwards compatible! :eek:
