Pci through usb

So, I need more pci slot spaces. Dual gpu and my aio block nearly all of them, and putting cards in the free ones equals rip fans and gpu cooling. I'm going to 3d print myself a bay to go in my CD bays, four pci slots in 2 bays using one of the pci slot extenders off eBay. However, they all use usb over a small pci card. Is this pci card neccarsary? Can't I just slap it straight into one of my free usb 3.0 headers with an adapter?

 

Pci cards for the win

And also, if anyone knows where to get pci to floppy connector or even sata or idea to floppy I'll be eternally grateful.

 

Thanks

To be clear, do you need more PCI expansion slots or PCIe expansion slots?

 

If PCI, then get something similar to this:

Could you just go with PCIe Risers? And put the slots elsewhere in the case?

you are talking about a PCI-E riser card, people used them a lot for mining rigs. They are not converting anything to USB, they just use USB 3.x connectors and wires to send the PCI-E signals between the small 1x slot adapter and the main add-on circuit board (usually with a 16x size slot on it); so no, you can't plug those into USB ports, the signals are not at all USB spec.
