I have a number of peripherals attached to my HP pavilion. It runs great but I want to add a card with some more USB 3.0 ports on it. Is it possible.? It has a PCIe x16 port in it. Someone told me that it can not be used this way. Can anyone advise me if I can use it this way and what would be a good model of card to get to accomplish my goal. I would like at least 2 (4 of I can get it) more USB 3.0 ports.
Thanks for the help

Welcome to the forum.
I am not a HP employee.
A USB 3.0 adapter will require a minimum PCIe x4 connection.
You can use the x16 slot if you don't need a discrete graphics card.
I don't like to recommend adapters. Quality and performance can vary from vendor to vendor.
You can check Amazon or Newegg for various products which should suit your needs.
