Where is the 2 in USB2?

Hi folks, this may be a very silly question....but.......................

If a motherboard supports USB 2 and your case hase a couple of USB sockets on the front, do they have to be USB 2 sockets to get the speed or is that all in the M.B.?

Sorry if silly, Epirb.

the avtual sockets are the same but there is some argument over the necessity of USB2 cabling but the chipset is the important bit so I wouldnt worry about it too much.

You see in places like PC World that sell various cables etc that there are 1.1 USB cables and USB2 cables that cost more, is this a con or is it right that a USB2 cable is different to that of a USB1.1 ?
