I was about to purchase an internal usb hub that fits into the 3 1/2inch bay. But when I checked for some install instructions on the internet, it seems I need an internal usb connector. I've looked inside the computer but I don't seem to have one. Does this mean I can't use this type of hub? Is there any way around it? Thanks

What motherboard brand and model do you have? Usually printed somewhere on the board itself if you take the side off the case.
It's almost certain you do have the connectors you need, but this may not be the case with a branded computer.

According to the downloadable manual from MSI's site, your board only has one USB take-off on the board. This means you will only be able to use either the case front USBs or the internal hub. Not both. If you don't have front USB ports on your computer case anyway, then it doesn't matter anyway. The connectors are JUSB1, next to the bottom PCI slot.
