Default No USB header on motherboard will PCI card work?

I recieved an internal card reader with 2 front usb and several card reader slots on it, I have it ready to hookup, it comes with several cables for connection.
The problem is that I do not have a USB header
or any kind of pin configuration on my motherboard for that. I guess since it came with 6 rear usb and 2 crappy front ones, that dell figured i didnt need the internal hookups?

well my question is can i get a USB pci card that has those 4 or 5 pin connections on it for internal connections? it seems all that I can find is an actual internal USB connection like a regular usb plug... any suggestions would be great.

. . . . . <---
. . . . <---- i think it's supposed to look like that
only can i get it on a PCI card?

oh yeah, i have to connect the following
(1) "vcc" connector (4 pin plug) red,green,white,black wires...
(2) usb connectors for the front usb ports labeled "USB 1" and "USB 2" also 4 pins red,white,green,black also
and if the pci card included firewire, i would connect that as well as there is also a 1394 plug and front access for it as well.
I can post pictures of the plugs etc, but i figure someone might know what im talking about.
