Hi,

I am considering getting a new PC soon (built at my local PC shop).  Regarding USB ports, I would like 2 ports on the front and 6 or 8 ports on the back.  This would include a mixture of USB 3 and USB 2 ports.

However, I'm also aware that there is the new USB-C standard.  Is it good to have USB-C ports included as well?  If so, how many should be included on the front/back?  What is typical of most modern average motherboards?

Thanks.

I like USB C but most desktop computer cases include either 1 or 0 and most motherboards include 1 or 0. USB C is a very futureproof port. In the future more devices will connect to it. You can also get expansion cards to add USB C ports.
