Default Need USB 3.0 add-on

Hey all, I have a Biostar TA790GXB3 BIOSTAR :: TA790GXB3 :: Overview

And I am wondering how I can add a USB 3.0 port to my comp?

Also, will this memory work for my comp? - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL

Do I even need 8gb? The main "big" things I do on my comp is play WoW, use Fraps to record my game play and then some light video editing...

Any suggestions for 2x2gb RAM are welcome if you don't think I need 8gb.

Thanks for your help

you cannot add a USB 3.0 port to my comp, atleast not to my current knowledge.

4GB of RAM is ample enough, but if ur willing to dish out 10 more $ for 8GB of ram, i'd say go for it. WoW and Fraps at the same time require a bit of RAM...

another issue would be: what OS do you have? 32-bit or 64-bit? if u have 32-bit, just get 4GB because it won't recognize over 3.5GB....
