HI,

I need USB 2 now and want to know if I get an USB 2 pci card that is all
I need.

I have XP Pro and an Asus 533-e mobo.

Thanks

Rock

Yes, those kind of cards are available and will add USB 2 support to an
older system that has USB 1.x.

I looked at your mb user manual and it says you have USB2. Did you install
the drivers from your cd that came with the motherboard ? If you need more
than 2 usb2 outlets you can get a hub for it.

If you don't have the CD go to this site and look for the SiS USB 2.0
Enhanced Host Controller Drivers for Windows 2000/XP.

You'll need to be running XP SP1 or SP 2 to have the USB 2.0
drivers. (or use the drivers supplied by and with the card.
