How come the PCI USB card I bought will not fit in my motherboard? 

by on September 20, 2010

Q: I am looking to buy an extra USB card for my computer in addition to the one already inside it. My PC has a ‘MS-7309 motherboard’ and I bought a Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 5-Port PCI card’ for it. But it didn’t fit the slots as they were too small. I looked on a diagram* which confirms that they are PCI slots… But it didn’t seem to fit! How can I tell what usb card will be compatible?

Also if I wanted to buy a new fan and computer housing, what should Iook for to ensure that everything fits?

Thanks
