I think that he is asking the more general question of PCI or USB
interface to his computer. PCI is my preference, and it sits right on
the south bridge with no intermediate protocol (USB). Also, the card
won't compete with other devices for USB bandwidth. Of course, the
downside is that you have to open the computer, which is a problem for
some people.
