    You will still have much faster speeds than USB 2.0 (at least 50% faster), so it's not that bad.

    It should be 3 or 4 times faster than USB 2. Its probably going to depend on what you are going to plug into the card.
    If its a mechanical drive, that will be the limiting factor anyway; an SSD, the PCI bus will probably be the limiting factor.
