Hi, I too have a usb2 pci card, I attach a Belkin 7-port hub with no ill effect. I bought the pci card because previously when I attached my Belkin it did bring up a box saying it would be better attached to a usb2 port. Cheers.
Internal USB headers are in fact for front or rear additional USB ports & can be used for usb Card readers /usb printers /usb cameras etc The only problem to watch for is current used by devices attached (usb modems & Mobo's via chipsets)the current limit 100ma for each channel.using a powered hub (thats with a power adapter plugged in to it)the current can be 500ma
Thanks you all for that valuable advice abd opinions To clear the air when talking about 'internal USB I am talking abou an actual socket on the PCI card but facing inward. - NOT a MoBo header. Will give it a bash see what happens
