Where do I plug this thing into?

Hi

There's a good offer for this one, I'm thinking about buying it... I have a desktop PC. My PCI-E slot is free (I use the integrated graphics) but I suppose that port is for graphics cards... But this card is noted to be "Mini PCIE MSATA". It is clearly not SATA. I'm not sure about MSATA, I don't have it. Those flat gold pins seems to fit into the PCI-E port but what for...? Would it work?

Type is Sandisk SSD U100 32GB msata mini PCI-E SSD, Sdsa5FK-032G

I believe you would need an MSATA to PCIe adapter.

Yeah. I don't think you can plug that connector directly into a PCIe port without causing some damage.
