I was looking at adding a 3.0 USB card to my PC as you can get one from TIGERDIRECT for about $30,would this be a good
investment and would it work with the 512 of ram i have right now looking at upping ram at least 2GB in near future.

Not quite sure what memory has to do with a USB 3.0 card. On any recent system, having only 512 meg of RAM is going to slow you down.

I got a USB 3.0 card to go in my old X58 build to extend it's life another year, and it works great. I have 2 USB 3.0 docks hooked into it, and it is quick.

It makes no real difference if you are only going to plug USB 2.0 devices into it.

The reason i mentioned the amount of ram is sometimes ram makes a difference not much like you say but every little bit
