Pros: It fit the PCI-E slot.
Cons: The parallel port did not find my dongle. The serial ports attach to the card with a ribbon and the 10 pin plug can go on either direction and there is no instructions anyplace to tell you which way it goes, so you have a 50/50 chance to get it right (the ribbon comes off the top of the card). Neither serial worked for more the 1 hour before loosing contact to my UPS.
Other Thoughts: I will be contacting NewEgg about this.
