Re: Adding USB 3.0 card to new Dell XPS 8300?

Adding USB 3.0 ports to the Dell XPS 8300 via a PCi express x1 card. Does it require a power cable?

For example if I add the Transcend PCI Express Interface USB 3.0 Dual Expansion Card. Am I good to go, do I just plug it into the PCI-x1 slot?

Or I need to plug a power cable into the white bit?

Also if I have 2 hdds and 2 disc drives plugged in, it is not possible for to get a power cable?
