I have a saitek x-52 joystick and I am considering purchasing rudder pedals and also a trackir4 and a headset. My notebook that I use has 2 usb ports. How do I plug all this stuff in?

You would need an USB hub and I think TrackIR suggest that you use a self powered one.

A powered hub is an absolute must for most USB 2.0 peripherals. I have a couple myself, because there's no such thing as too many USB plugs.

From what I have learned from reading the naturalpoint's forum (tackir forum), some people are experiencing problems while connecting their device to a USB hub...

You would still need an external USB hub to accomodate the multitude of devices though, but it may pay off to read which device to connect to what port before purchase to ensure compatibility and max pleasure...
