    My friend is after a USB card for her rig that had internal headers as she wants to add a card reader, but the headers on the mobo are all used up.

    Cheers.

    i'm guessing you mean the pins not just the usb connector on the inside, i'll see what i can find on the egg (or other store) and post back

    Yes, the pins. I already checked, but couldn't find anything over there.

    well this isn't a card exactly, but more of a splitter/hub. you'll need to find a spot to mount it but I think it should work.

    edit, you'll have to unplug an existing device on the mobo, but the splitter has plenty of ports that you can plug that device back in to

    your welcome,

    newtekie1's is probably best if you only need one header and want to save some money, but if you have a few other devices as well then the one on amazon should work
