    Question Remote pci host

    Is there such a thing to allow you to have an external hub for pci cards?
    I have just built my first carpc in an old amp case, It only has usb1 and I need usb2, there is no room for a pci card, what I thought about doing was to take an old pci card, cut the bottom of it, solder wires onto the pcb then get a riser and solder them on to that pcb so I can mount my pci card in its own box. Basically a pci plug on one end of the wire and a socket the other end.
    Would that work? or is there anything like that available to buy.
    I know the cable can't be to long I'm just talking about 6 inch or so.
