So my grandad want's a new pc and I have been looking at motherboard's for both Ryzen and Kaby Lake, as I am undecided yet which to go for, for him as he just plays games and doesn't render videos etc but he wants to play all the latest games. The thing I don't understand is why suddenly on all board's except some high end board's there is a severe lack of USB ports. Boards have gone from having around 8 ports to suddenly only having around 4 ports 6 if your lucky. I mean the Asus Rog Strix board has 5 ports, compared to the Maximus IX Hero which has 8 not including the somewhat useless Type c port. Since when did having a use full amount of USB ports become a luxury? The reason I ask is that when I eventually look for myself, I need to be able to plug in: Keyboard Mouse Mic Webcam Hotas 2x ports Capture Card 1 Hub for pen drives etc So I would need a total of 8 ports, and two of them would have to be capable of delivering the required power for the hotas which means USB 3 for a USB 2 device.
