attaching USB rear socket to motherboard

My new Gigabyte K7 Triton motherboard is equipped with two external USB 1.1 ports. It also has a USB 2 socket on the motherboard itself. I am told that I can purchase a USB 2 rear port which will connect to the motherboard USB 2 socket.

Are these readily available, and is it just a matter of plugging it in and installing at the rear of the computer?

My BIOS also indicates that all USB Ports are enabled.

I am intending to purchase a USB 2 compatible scanner.

Advice please!!

Thanks in advance.

they are readily available but be sure that the wires in the connector match those of the pin header (consult your manual)

what model of gigabyte motherboard do you have. if it has connections on the mobo, it should come with the usb2 back plate, my ga-7vax did

Gigabyte model GA 7ZXE - no backplate provided. Tried several internet PC stores but cannot locate one.

Anyone know of any potential suppliers

Thanks once again in advance
