I'm helping a friend with her first build, and we've run into a minor compatibility issue.
The motherboard we've selected is a Gigabyte
GA-H77-DS3H (We have no interest in the z77 chipset, so please refrain from crowing about its glorious merits. We will not be overclocking, therefore it is completely unnecessary.)
Is there an internal converter we can purchase to utilize the 2.0 ports? She doesn't have any devices that require 3.0, and doesn't foresee needing any in the near future.
We really don't want to leave the front 2.0 ports dead, as they're incredibly convenient, but we'd like to find something that will convert the 3.0 connectors on the mobo to something the 2.0 ports can use.
