I had to sacrifice my usb 3 card for my graphics card?
My motherboard had a pcie x2 that I used for my usb 3 card that enabled my computer to have usb 3 ports.
I had to remove it to install the bulky graphics card.
So my computer is stuck with usb 2 ports.
Can I survive with my computer having no usb 3 ports?

All USB 3 devices currently on the market are compatible with USB 2. They will just run at a slower speed.
For things like a USB memory stick, or transferring pictures between your phone and your PC, the difference is not going to be noticeable. It might 16 seconds to transfer a large data folder, instead of 15 seconds.
Unless you are running games or applications from an external USB hard drive, you are unlikely to notice a real difference.

Of course you can.
