Will a PCI-e USB card be alright for mouse and keyboard?

I want to install windows 7 on my rig for a myriad of reasons but the lack of Z390 USB drivers is preventing me so im looking into other options and i found a bunch of people are using an add-in card for USB but im a bit worried about latency for PVP games like battlefield and world of warcraft. Will i have any issues or should it be smooth sailing?

tbh i'm spitballing a little here but yeah there will be some latency; just compare using native (on the chipset) than third party chips that expand the port on a mobo. and as w/those, it depends on the chips (manufacturer) and drivers. i guess you could negate some of that by sacrificing X8 lanes plugging it into the second x16 slot but why?

however going through a google search; seems to be more of issues w/audio, didn't see anything about KB/M. i suspect YMMV since its all about the drivers.

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

what is the actual use case? Is this to edge out the performance by a few %? or for older BF & private WoW?

it would make more sense to me to build up a DX10 "retro" gaming PC.

meh. It can be tamed

as dude said, a pci-e 8x usb card shouldn't be terrible.

the final purpose of my X79 board will be win7 gaming PC, once its done being a server.

however, the goal is a DX10/dx11 killer, i'll probably stick fermi or older in it.

ill take a look around for an 8X card, im sure amazon has one. x79 is still beastly with some of those xeons, probably could pair a 1080 and not bottleneck too much.

Late, but just saw this, so for future reference/Google pointing others here

1) It's Intel (their horrid, horrid platform management that they refuse to change) and a Z chipset on top. He's not gonna have any more or less latency than what he'd usually have, it's all bottle-necked anyway. Though in equal fairness, he deserves it because he gave them money. None of this is a recent 'issue', but if they're paying (just as the OP is), why change it. I no longer blame them, their customers deserve no better.

2) The OP can make a custom win7 image with post-win7 USB drivers baked in; solve your problems now and on every subsequent install in the future. This can also include NVMe drivers and whatever else you fancy. I won't risk our sensitive mods' anger by posting a link, but.. my digital life.

Pride, honour and purity.
