USB hubs

Can anyone tell me when it's OK to use a USB-cable powered hub, and when it's necessary to choose one that has its own separate power supply?

When using large items like joy sticks and yokes, use a usb hub that has it's own power cord. Unpowered usb hubs are only suited for small draw items like pocket usb drives.

You can also use a USB-hub that plugs in directly to your mobo(to an AGP slot) and gives you till 4 more USB ports to your system.This kind of hub can supports every kind of USB device.
