Is it on a pci card? Because my pci usb card has one internal usb plug, or look around on the mobo somewhere.

BTW, I like the way the xps 700 case looks, especially the one with the red lights on the front.

Internal means that they are on the back of the USB card or directly on the motherboard. This can be used to connect accessories inside the case if necessary.

yeah i have 6 internal, doesnt mean they are inside the case, on mine it means u have to attach a usb backplate or cable with the usb ports on the end of them to the motherboard to get acces to the 'internal' usbs.
