Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I have a 6 year old system.  P4 1.6 with a Gigabyte board with Intel
Brookdale i845D chipset.  The motherboard only supports USB 1.0.  Can
I add a card to the board that would support USB 2.0?  Thanks.

Sure. And the cards are cheap, so they don't require a huge investment.
This one uses a NEC chip, and is Adaptec brand. Appears to come with
a driver CD, in case you have Win98SE for the OS. For Win2K or WinXP,
a driver CD should not be necessary (due to you likely having service
packs already installed in the OS to handle it).

While I have no proof, I suspect they create fictional
reseller ratings.  Too many times I've heard of someone with
an unresolved problem or receiving DOA merchandise.  It just
seems funny when the same company has the same problems over
and over again.

Well, I haven't bought anything from them. I tried to look for
a different source for a change.

It would be funny if companies didn't try to abuse Resellersratings.
Usually, when there is "ballot box stuffing", the quality of
some of the text postings is a dead giveaway, so reading any
postings by people, about the company, should give some clue.

I've even seen "ballot box stuffing" at Newegg. Rosewill tried that.
And the strangest thing was, they tried to pump the rating of a
$10 USB card. Which makes no sense at all. You'd think they'd want
to pump something they could make money on.

I suppose you could buy the USB card locally, but around here
I'd probably get reamed. Just for a chuckle, I priced a USB
card at, and they want $59.26 CDN :-) Dream on...
You could buy a whole motherboard for that much.
