  1. Im lookin into building a computer and Ive picked out all the parts, but I just have a simple question. The case Ive chosen, Aspire (Turbo Case), I noticed that there are two USB ports and one Firewire port in the front middle of the case. On the Mobo, Intel Motherboard, I noticed that there are two front USB ports and one front Firewire port located near the top of the motherboard. Wouldn't this mean that the slots in the front of the case wont line up with the ports on the board? If so, is there a way to fix this? Thanks for any help.

    Normally the usb and firwire on the front of the case are just sockets that connect to the mobo via cables already inside the case.

    So there are four USB and two FireWire connectors on board where you can plug those ports in front of the case.
