HP Pavilion 570-p033w upgrade question

HP Pavilion 570-p033w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

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

Greetings,

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.

 

Regards

Thank you for the help.  I am not a gamer so I do not need any sort of specialized graphics card.  I will check out there and see what I can find.  Appreciate it.

Hi JeroldC,

 

You're very welcome.

 

You should be able to find a decent PCIe to USB 3.0 adapter having four ports at Amazon or Newegg.
