Ok back when I built my computer (about a year ago) I made one small mistake. The case has 4 USB ports but my Mother board only supports 2. This is starting to bug me so I want to know is there an expansion card that preferably goes in the PCI Express port since I have 2 but don't use ether of them.

CPU = Intel i7 950
Motherboard = Asus P6X58D
RAM = Corsair XMS3 DDR3 6X 2GB
Power Supply = Corsair AX1200W
Graphics Card = GTX 580 2-way SLI

Yes, there are PCI-E to USB boards that you can purchase. Try looking at Newegg and Tiger Direct.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

The board has an adhesive back with which it can be fastened inside the case.

Make sure you put it, where you want it, because when it's stuck, it's stuck. :thumbsup:

Clean the area, where you want to adhere it, with some rubbing alcohol, first.
