Which one is that?

I thought maybe cards on ebay might be cheap but not sure how to distinguish the chipsets. I bet, most of the time, they're not listed or acknowledged. So, you have to know the model number you need?

It's this one...
USB 3.0 Card - PCI Express SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Adapter Card | 2 Port | Canada

Looks like it's not available at Canada Computers anywhere and I don't see it at Tiger Direct either.

Create something idiot proof and they will make a better idiot.
