    ok here a my problem i add a USB 2.0 and FIREWIRE PCI COMBO CARD (NEC® + ALI® chipset 6-port USB 1.1/2.0 & Firewire IEEE-1394 Combo PCI Card Kit)

    but i still running out of usb port- i have a usb hub- with my printer connected to it, but ti tell me my printer would be faster if connoted to a usb 2.0
    i do but the 2 plug usb hub im use, may not be be usb2.0 useable

    on my mobo i have 2 usb 1.0 plug and 2 other usb plug hook up to MOBO use a cable and one of the back plate a pcl card ) that one i will soon get rid of)

    my question is i like to add a other pcl usb 2.0 card to my compter, i really do not see any problem in do so, but it never hurt to ask first- a card that has more plug on it-- like maybe 4 lol

    You can stick as many USB 2.0 cards as you have PCI slots for into the system. I prefer the cards with the NEC USB 2.0 chipset, they are more compatible for me. I've had a number of issues with the ALI and VIA chipset USB 2.0 cards.
