    I'm about to build my own HCPC/media pc and was wondering if you can get PCI cards that give extra internal USB connections? There aren't many USB headers on most mobo and lots of nice things (like internal card readers, IR/RF control, VFD) need them.

    I know this has been asked once before, but the answer was a bit sketchy and involved a bit of DIY :eek:. Is the only way to have cables looping out the back?

    Cheers

    Thanks for the prompt reply. Does this give you just one extra internal? Are there cards that give several internal connections? (although saying that I'm running out of things that'll need internal connections:blush: )

    Cheers

    Yep, the example KraGorn shows only has one internal header but I've seen plenty with two external and at least two internal.
