I have tried updating the drivers through device manager. And the odd thing is is the 2 front USB ports that I connected to the motherboard through a cable run as 2.0. [My motherboard][1]

Give us more information. Do the devices you are trying to use support 2.0?

Also, the motherboard info states it has USB 2.0/1.1 support. Only some of the ports on the board may support 2.0, while the rest use 1.1.

I just want them to run as 2.0. All my devices work just 2.0 has more bandwidth then 1.1. Since it supports 1333MHz CPUs meaning it isn't that old of a board I thought it would be 2.0. (Got the board from my bro)

Try updating the drivers using the latest ones from Intel, not Gigabyte or Microsoft Update.

It is an Intel chip set hadn't thought of that thank you. =D

No problem. ;) Be sure to comment here when you've finished updating to let me know if it worked.

It uses multiple chip sets P35/G33/G31 which one should I get? Or should I get them all? (The Intel site has all 3)

Gigabyte's site says P35, so I'd go with that.
