I found this when I typed in my question. It sort of answers my question but I want to double check.
I have a Rosewill Challenger case purchased in 2009. The details only show front usb ports. I would like to install a USB 3.0 card with an internal port to get USB 3.0 functionality in the front.
Do I need to upgrade the front ports or is the hardware requirements the same for USB 2 and USB 3?
