I am going to purchase a new BCD996XT. I have been told that it comes with a serial port cable for programing purposes. As most of you know, PC's no longer have this port. I really would rather purchase a card and install it on my PC rather than buying an over priced usb cable. Will this one work? DP 1-Port RS232 Serial PCI with 16550 UART - PCI - Serial - Serial/Parallel - IT Products I can find it online including shipping for around 30 bucks. If this one would not work, can anyone recommend one that does? All 4 of my PC's have PCI and PCIe slots availible.
