Hi,

I'm upgrading my computer(which is quite old) with a new motherboard,processor, the whole package.(Like a custom computer) I want to add a USB PCI card so I can plug in USB devices(My iPod,etc) Could any of you recommend any USB PCI cards you know to work well?

Thanks!!

'Belkin' is the probably the biggest name in USB 2.0 PCI cards. Mine works flawlessly. Note, if running Windows XP with either SP1 or SP2, you don't need to install the supplied driver software. Windows will recognise the new USB ports as being 'enhanced' (USB 2.0 in other words).

Generally, any new motherboard will come with at least 4 USB ports, and most cases come with an extra two-four mounted on the front of the case, minimizing the need for an extra card.
