is there something like a card of something like that so I can get more usb ports, I messed up my two front usb ports in my case I would fix them if I had a replacement but it would probably be easier just to find a card or even both anyone know where I can find some. as it is I only have 4 usb plugins when I need 7 or 8 if I want everything plugged in , I was scraping by with 6 when both my front usb plugings were working, I bent the pins somehow.

Yup the hubs are easier, as you're definitely not likely to use up all the bandwidth at one time. You can get a cheap 4-port one at factory direct for like $4. The only time you'd need a powered USB hub is if you're using it all the time at max bandwidth. It wouldn't be able to handle all the devices at once. Now if you're pluggin in a keyboard, mouse and printer, you won't have any issues.

mouse, keyboard, printer, scanner, mic, webcam, external HDD, external DVD drive, and a 7 port USB hub that usualy has 3-6 thumbdrives plugged in; that leaves 3 USB ports on my case and however many ports I have free on my hub. yes I have used all of those at once. I dont beleive in having to plug in and unplug things.

LOL, was a time when I thought 3 USB ports was all I'd ever need, now I have 2 on front of case for digital camera and game controller and 6 on back of motherboard and 2 on rear bracket and I still need a hub :haha:.
Mouse, keyboard, game controller, digital camera, 2 web cams, 2 flash drives, usb headset, printer/scanner and mp3 player data and charging cable, that's it I think.
