Looking for USBV3 suggestions

On my older but still quite viable SuperMicro Server at home, I'm finding I need to free up a PCIE-4 slot for new hardware, and it's presently stuffed with a USBV3 card..... and I don't want to loose USBV3 capability on this system.

I do have 2 pci-x slots, but finding a pcix slot USB3 card that is both high bandwidth and W7-64 compatible is $$$..

I really do need that PCIE slot for new hardware, and the $$$$ of replacement of computer is out of the question... just to get a PCIE slot.

Has anyone encountered this before (high bandwidth USB3 on PCI-X Slot with W7-64) and have card MFG recommendations?

Thanks

What about using a regular PCI USB 3.0 card? You should still be able to get at least 100 MB/sec out of it and it should work in a PCI-X slot.
