Ok guys, I recently discovered the upgrade of USB ports to support 3.0 and this is big news! Can anyone relate?

So, The ports will be backwards compatable , 9 times faster, and will upload and download at the same time. That is quite an advancement.

Indeed, I've been salivating since they announced it. The first consumer products should ship by early 2010 (so they say.)

Newegg has 3 or 4 mainboards, cheapest about $140.00 with the 3.0 ports, I guess we just have to wait for the introduction? I hyped too Andrew, I want to build one and see for myself the difference,Alan in sunny Seadrift,Tx.

I'm probably just going to get a PCI card; motherboards are too expensive for me right now.
