    Ive added a second gfx card to my PC which has left me nowhere to stick my USB card. Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced external USB2 hub(4 port minimum), so i can hook up my scanner and printer etc?

    Are there drawbacks to using an External hub, as in slower speeds through it?

    I have one by belkin. I wish motherboards would provide more in the hub next door to the ethernet and ps2 slots... A lot of them say they can deal with upto 8, but more often then not you have to lose 2 slots on your motherboard/case with half of them in order to use that many without a multiplier/hub.

    Self-powered devices like printers, etc should work fine :D
