I've got a PCI USB3 card sitting in that smaller x1 slot that will plug in and work in the x16 slot, so the smaller one has to be PCI-E.

Even if this will work, will I see a decent performance boost from it?

I'm tempted to just buy one of the riser cards, if it doesn't work I've got another machine I can use it in, so no money wasted.

Well if your usb card reads pci e then you are good to go they do make pci usb3.0 cards too
