right now i'm slowly buying parts to build a tower myself. i just got the case, it's a full size tower for an ATX motherboard. it has 3 usbs, 1 esata, and the audio jacks on the front for easy plug in. but i'm wondering, how do i hook those up? do i need a special motherboard that supports them? or do i just plug into the ports on the back and loop them back through the case or something?
i haven't bought a motherboard yet, so any help picking one out that would support the front usbs would be appreciated. but please keep in mind i don't have a whole lot of money, so try to pick lower priced boards for suggestions.
this computer is going to be used mostly as a file server for the house, so it doesn't need to have high graphics or a monster CPU or anything like that.
