Yep Steve I knew they were meant for the headers and if I don't get any joy with that card from the supplier I will go for something like that. I was being a bit "adventurous" wanting the 3.0 USB but at the same time know that they are not that much faster than 2.0 UB as I think I saw you mention here a while ago on a post. Gary has also told me that in the past but I am a bit gung ho by nature when it comes down to it

Nothing wrong with USB 3.0, and they are faster than USB 2.0, just not as fast as all the claims. You can usually get somewhere in the neighborhood to 2-2.5 times faster than USB 2.0. But, you wont come close to the '10 times faster' that they always advertise. In my opinion, yes, they are worth it and will shorten transfer times a lot. Just don't expect what they advertise. That is in a lab under perfect circumstances and set up. It is basically a theoretical speed they are capable of.

Yep know at you are saying mate most of what I want plugged in doesn't really need the speed just a connection. The only connection I want any speed and it isn't that critical is the image drive.

Layback Bear brings up some excellent options. If it is speed you are looking for, eSata is much faster than USB 3.0.

An adapter like this:
Green USB to PS/2 Keyboard/Mouse Adapter | USB Type A / MiniDin6

will do what you originally asked about John
