Sorry to post this again but i've had no reply in the other thread and the sooner I can get an answer the sooner I can buy my first gaming PC :)

So...the situation is - after much deliberation (and help from others in the forums - cheers guys) i have decided to buy the following from scan. My card is sitting ready to place the order but there is one thing that is putting me off. From what I can make out from the listing it only has 2 x 3.0 USB ports and I fear this may not be enough (it doesnt appear to be letting me add more neither on their website)

Because of the length of time it has took me to decide on a gaming pc i feel like just getting it and buying a 4 to 1 USB adapter to create more ports. Would anybody recommend this?

Those two USB 3.0 ports are on the case. You'll still have another four USB 3.0 ports on the back panel (and a couple of USB 2.0 ports).

Things like that are dictated by the motherboard and it's chipset. Mileage varies with the specs list on some suppliers websites. You'll either need to find whatever their listings 'more info' or search for the individual product page on scan. Generally I double check on the manufacturers site for detailed listings.

In that regard I love Intel's ark site. Every product has a full listing of technical info and changes during the products life, in a common format, with no additional fluff. All manufacturers should have one.
