    most of the time one comes in the box will the motherboard

    ...another option is to get a new case w/front USB's, they connect straight to the MB as well

    Yes it is and usually the place that I get the mobo from usually has them (whether this holds true where you are I can't say) and if not I found can get them in usually within a few days (that saves ya the prob of decoding all the wires and pins and makin' sure that it's wired properly for your board). ;)
