My knowledge is fairly limited in computer technology so I was just looking for some advice.

I've been considering this case for my new set-up. I really like the Orange/Black version as seen here: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-034-NX&groupid=701&catid=7&subcat=

This particular version seems to be difficult to find over here in the UK, but my main concern is that it doesn't support USB 3.0 technology. I know I can purchase this case in other colours with USB 3.0 but as I said, I really like this version.

How off-putting would that be for you guys? Would you consider it as major con? Any help would be appreciated!

Regardless USB 3.0 or not, there would only be one port on the top of the case that is usb 3 and one that is usb 2. I got rid of my phantom because of the placement of the usb ports.

I would just buy a 5.25 usb3.0/card reader.

I just built a new rig with the CM Storm Enforcer and of course it comes with two top front mounted usb 3.0 ports with supplied internal MB header cable but i did also add the below 5.25 " AFT usb 3.0 card reader that also comes with an additional usb 3.0 port. I just ran the AFT card readers cables out the back and plugged them into the MB I/O rear usb 3.0 ports.

BTW this is a great fast card reader that accepts ALL the current card types:
