Hey experts, just a quick question about USB 2.0

I have recently ordered myself an iRiver mp3 player, and it is a USB 2.0 device.  With 40gb of music to transfer i really dont want to have to use the old USB1 that is my onboard USB.
If i was to get a USB 2.0 PCI card, would this give me USB 2.0 speeds, or would the motherboard limit this and only allow transfer at USB 1 rates?  The computer is about 1.5 years old so im not wanting to get a new motherboard just yet...

Any thoughts or more info needed, just ask

Thanks Experts!
