Arrow pci to usb card - optiplex 380 - 10-23-2010, 06:29 PM

Anyone know where I can purchase a mini pci to usb card for my Dell Optiplex 380 The standard cards are too wide for my desktop. I did a number of searchs, but can not come up with what I need... I only get results for standard desktop pci to usb cards.. I do not want an external hup.

Any assistance will be appreciated!

The Dell Optiplex 380 has 8 USB ports - you need more? Some models of the 380 have a "low profile" PCI slot, which is probably what is giving you grief. My guess is that you are asking here because we talk about MiniPCIe - but this is an entirely different form factor than what your Optiplex can use. Google "low profile pci usb" and you'll find many options.
