Motherboard has no USB 3.0 Headers, but case does.

I am going to build my very first tower, but my motherboard is not completely compatible with the USB 3.0 on my case. Are there any sub $50 motherboards that can do this?

could also get a 3.0 to 2.0 cable, i did that for my build but i understand that is not the greatest option

Thanks man, I plan on using one. It's super cheap to do so I'm gonna go for it.

This is pretty much your only option.

Doesn't have much in terms of features. Lacks any real ability for stable overclocking. However, it does have a USB 3.0 header and will do the job.

Thanks for the help man! I'm thinking I'm just going to use a 3.0 to 2.0 cable like multi said. Seems like a better option.

Actually, I don't yet haha, but I am thinking of changing my motherboard to the Gigabyte you suggested. It has more memory slots and is $2 cheaper (every penny counts). Thanks man.
