no just buy a usb pci card. buy one of them cables where 1 end goes into the usb socket and the other end goes into your device.so just fit the card and attatch that cable and just place it by the side of your computer. not actually inside. you can then plug devices into it without any fuss

But wouldn't there be no space since I only have 2 back USB ports at the moment but that PCI card has 4?

No but the external slots are on the card, right? so the card has to stick out of the back?I dunno, I'm a complete idiot when it comes to the inside of my computer..
