I was wondering if this USB 3.0 Hub thing (http://www.amazon.com/Inateck-Superspeed-Ports-PCI-E-Expansion/dp/B00B6ZCNGM/ref=pd_cp_e_0) will work with my mother board (http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4519#bios). But here is the catch, My graphics card is so big that it covers up the 2 small PCI connectors, (PCIEX1_1 is covered and PCIEX1_2 would be a tight squeeze and possibly block air flow to the graphics card fan) I was wondering if I can put the PCI express card in the one of the two large PCI ports at the bottom (left side on the image) Or the PCIEX4 to the right of those. I just don't know because it is bigger then the card. 

I also read some where that if I were to put in something to the PCI port it could slow down my graphics card or something? I'm not really sure on that one. Anyway I would really appreciate the help. Thanks

yes you can and it should work, I say it should work. It has no bearing on your GPU or any other part of your system except for power draw and the bus speed of the pci slot itself.


Some screen shots would really help in acssessing your issue along with what system specs you have.
