Yep, prices for USB 2.0 gears are too low now so why not get USB 2.0? For example, I can get a USB 2.0 PCI card with 5 ports for $16 US shipped and a USB 1.1 PCI card with 4 ports for $13 shipped. You can see the pricing difference is so narrow that I would be silly to get the USB 1.1.

true, i was looking to get external usb hub, but i guess internal may be better, is there one i can put at the front of my computer, not at the back, for example below the disk drive. (sorry i dont know the computer terminology)
