Hey everyone,

Ok, so the front of my case: NZXT Source 210 Elite (White) ATX Mid Tower

- has 1 usb 2.0 port on the front, so I want to buy an extension because of the equipment that needs attaching! Below is a list of the stuff that I need to connect:

Perixx PX-2000 keyboard
Perixx MX-2000 mouse
Turtlebeach x12 headset

All 3 of these devices need a usb 2.0 connection, but I've heard reports of devices not running at their best when multiple devices are plugged into a hub, so what I need is a recommendation from you guys as to the BEST, or MOST RELIABLE hub on the market, preferably under £30?

Thanks for your time, please help!!!

They're basically all equivalent - use much the same chips. You may have trouble if devices try to draw more than 100mA each though.

Why can't you just plug them in the back?

How about a Roccat Apuri? Basically it's a mouse bungee, but has 4 usb2 ports and additional power cable, too.

And I thought that you didn't think of ports on the back due to some problems with reaching it... How did you connect your vga to the monitor anyway...

Hey everyone,

Why don't you buy a PCI express x16 USB expansion card.
If you do not have a PCI express x16 slot free you can buy USB cards for other slots but i would recommend this as the best sollution.
