windows 7 x64 - USB3 ExpressCard Support & Drivers

Hello to everyone

Sorry for reposting the same subject with new-better title beacause maybe it it was not clear what I was asking.

I need your help. I am intending to buying the following AKE 54mm USB3 - 3 Port ExpressCard for my laptop that I have Windows 7 Pro x64 installed.

Laptop 54mm Express Card ExpressCard to 3 Port USB 3.0 Adapter Superspeed 5Gbps | eBay

At the description it is referred that it is supported only by Windows 7 x32 bit. Is this possible?? Is there any known driver for such an express card? I have searched in the web and found that the following driver might be ok

Download Fresco USB 3.0 drivers for Windows 7 64bit

Do you think I shoud order such a card or I will never manage to make it work in my Windows 7 x64 system???

Any advise would be very helpfull.
Thank you in advance

If its specified here in the following Microsoft Article.

If I'm running a 64-bit version of Windows, do I need 64-bit drivers for my devices?

Yes, all hardware devices need 64-bit drivers to work on a 64-bit version of Windows. Drivers designed for 32-bit versions of Windows won't work on computers running 64-bit versions of Windows.

If the product states it only works on windows 7 32 bit, it only works in windows 7 32 bit.
Simple as that.

Never trust "driver download" websites.

If the seller offers a return policy, you could always return it and test it out with that driver. But I would just recommenced looking for something else.

And I would not buy anything electronic on ebay.
