Hi, the P6330F desktop has internal ports where I can add additional USB ports for external [or internal] USB devices. I would like to add a couple of USB ports externally using them. is there a part number for the bracket? Don't want to use a hub unless I have to.

Unfortunately 4 ports in back aren't enough.
Yes. This looks better. some brackets have 10 pins [good for 2 ports] but HP's mobo [at least in this model has 4 pins - so each set of 4 is for one USB port.

This 5 port USB 2.0 PCI-E card might fit your needs. It's $25. The card need a 4 pin molex connector. The reviews appear to be mixed.
This 3 port USB 3.0 PCI-E card might also fit your needs. It's $19. This card also needs a 4 pin molex adapter. The reviews are also mixed.
The last suggestion from above along with what I have suggested might fit your needs.
I did see a 7 USB port PCI-E card but it's a bit pricey at $65.
