Need Advice: Low Profile PCI-e (1x) USB 3.0 Expansion Card

I'm looking for a low cost (under $20) Low Profile PCI-e USB 3.0 expansion card that will run both Windows 7 and Linux that is reliable and easy to install. Trying to add to my sister's machine. In *theory* the chip set will support PCI-e v2.0, but whether it has been implemented is another question. Cheap is good just in case it does not (yes I checked with HP and their response amounted to "Duh?!? Cheap is good).

Although I don't have any experience with this card, how about this one?
