Feel like you are missing out on all the USB-C fun that owners of the new MacBook are having? Here's how you can add support for the new standard.

What you'll need is one free PCI Express slot (x4, x8 or x16 will do) and the ASRock USB 3.1/A+C card. The card features the ASMedia ASM1142 controller, is compliant with PCI Express 1.1, 2.0 and 3.0 specifications, and supports data rates up to 10 Gbps.

On the card not only do you get a USB-C port, but also a handy standard USB-A slot for your regular USB devices.

Just pop the card into a free PCI Express slot, load the drivers, and you're ready to start using USB-C.

The ASRock USB 3.1/A+C costs $35.
