Unless the PCIe card is not compatible, which it should be, or you don't have drivers for it, then it should work.

You may need to download drivers from the card makers site, if Windows doesn't install it automatically.

Be sure to set the boot order to boot to the same drive as you normally boot to. Also, be sure you unplug the computer before inserting the card, or if there is an ON/OFF switch on the back, use it.

Try it and see. I can't think of any reason why it wouldn't work (presuming you have Windows 7 drivers for the card).

Agree; that's exactly what I'd try first.
