Problem is that product u listed, it says this in the cons....Cons: If you have little to no experience installing adapters, there are no ""How To"" steps as far as what goes where inside your computer. I have no idea where this would plug into

Hi there,

The card to which Titan8990 linked is a PCI card. Therefore, it connects to a PCI slot on the motherboard. PCI slots are the 3 white ones on the bottom right of the following picture:

I hope this helps.
