unless you have a working pci IF already. There are still new mother 
boards with working pci slots, mine has three. I don't know about buying a 
pci card though. I might buy a pcie AI like one of the AudioScience boards 
if it fit my needs, but USB would give more bang for the buck for sure.

To take this one step farther, I think it is reasonable to assume that 
most Studio users will have a USB AI and default tweaks/setup in that 
direction. Those with a PCI will likely have some experience setting it 

Your breadth of experience is very helpful.
