Can I use my usb 2.0 port on my PC for the Dell Visor instead of usb 3.0?

I have seen that a few Oculus users have been able to use USB 2.0 for their VR systems instead of USB 3.0. I would like to know if the Windows MR systems can do the same since I do not have the correct slot for a PCI-e to USB 3.0 adapter on my system as of now. If not, is there another sort of adapter that I can buy that can be used instead?

I'll take this one, @pkcable.

No. Windows Mixed Reality requires the throughput that USB 3.0 provides. USB 2+ might work, but the frame rate would be choppy and slow at best.
