Forgive me if this is a silly question, but I have usb 1 ports on my machine. If I buy a 4 port USB2 unit, will i get USB 2 performance?

No, unless you get a "PCI USB 2 Card".

The hub will perform as the USB 1 speeds

if you get a pci 4 port usb2 card you can then connect a usb2 hub it will then perform at usb2, if you connect a usb2 hub to usb1 connection you will only get usb1
