Everything is compatible except you need a 120mm fan instead of 80mm, and 2 sticks of RAM increases performance. I would also suggest going with the 2600 non-X and upgrading to a RX 580.
Glad to see more heathens being converted to the true master race. Keep at it fam +1
Thanks, picked up a copy
I've been waiting for months to recommend these to someone who actually wants them.
If you want to save five or ten dollars on power, you could get an RX 590, which would open up your path to FreeSync in future. There are better deals on GPU's right over the horizon, so I think it would be a good idea to wait a few more months.
Your assumption is wrong if I recall correctly. I believe GPUs can power monitors with only one in frame sync. I completely recommend G-Sync, especially at 1440p with a 1080 you might start to notice screen tearing at high settings. When I upgraded to Freesync, I knew I would never be able to give it up, and I've been stuck with AMD through every GPU and monitor sale since then. If you value your freedoms, get the IPS monitor, but I think G-Sync would provide a great gaming experience.
Nah I'm kidding. I know there are a ton of distros. It would make sense to add the ones available physically, however.
I want to see more Linux. The site should provide distros in the OS section for $0.00 with a link to the mirror.
No... I already have an expensive PC-building hobby, now you're going to get me into bike building too?!
Nope. It will work just the same. I am OCD about the logo being the right way, that's all.
Nice one! Yeah those cards are a disappointment from every perspective. That's a nice looking deep learning server, as far as they go! Killing me that the corsair cooler is sideways though.
Reviews frequently say it is quite fast for the spin rate, I think it is a safe investment.

You should bring that over to my setup and the dust from my setup will be sucked into the black hole of cleanliness that is your build. +1
A couple of questions: Do you have a budget? What size do you want (my guess is one or two 27" for work) and that's about it! This would be a passing recommendation.
Looks like one of GearBest's Chinese Segotep cases.
Interesting! I have 8GB RAM and my MSI board only lets me set it to 2GB. I think I got a very low-budget motherboard.
Whoa 8gb.... maybe that's due to the amount of RAM, but I have a B450 MSI board that caps at 2gb.

USB headphones have built-in DACs. This means they use their own drivers. There's no way to use built in audio drivers for USB headphones, as the motherboard's built-in DAC outputs analog audio, and USB headsets input digital audio. After a quick search, there are converters for USB headphones from S/PDIF connectors, but that doesn't help you because your motherboard doesn't have one of those either. You would have to get 3.5mm headphones with an external headphone amp. These ones are 50 ohm, meaning you might not need an amp depending how loud you want it. They would plug right into your motherboard, and since they take analog audio, your motherboard drivers would work.
Another option is soldering a 3.5mm connector to the internal speaker wires on your existing headphones. If you have not done anything like this before, I would not recommend it, as there is way too much that could go wrong. However, if you want to do that, just snip off the USB connector (the whole thing), strip the (hopefully) 2 exposed wires, and solder a connector from a sacrificial cable or headphone onto it.
RGB power cable +1
Yes, but there would be virtually no performance benefit, as the maximum framebuffer the 2400g supports is 2GB, half or a quarter of the RX 580. It would pointlessly consume RAM. You can try it however, go to the BIOS and set IGP to Force and framebuffer to 2G.
This would be a camo build here in Canada. Two colour schemes in one! Outstanding work, especially on the GPU.
Well you'll probably sell off of eBay faster if you're willing to split it up into parts, good luck getting rid of the case and PSU though. I think $250 (CAD) is a good price for those parts (if you don't have a GPU or hard drive).
There is a community Linux version of iCUE. Not sure if it will work with AIO coolers but here it is if you're interested. NVIDIA drivers should be installed by default on all Linux distros with installers (i.e. not Arch and Gentoo). You will have to familiarize yourself with xrandr for changing video settings. Also they do make adapters for internal USB ports.
This was 5 months ago, you can assume prices were different (also I'm Canadian)
10/10 great build
Pardon my saying, but I believe you should clean out your build, I think a unicorn may or may not have excreted rainbows into it.
I would say it's a clean build...

and a nice build, despite the case it is well coordinated. +1
I use a single SATA to 6pin on a GTX 570 and don't encounter issues. I think it matters more the power draw. The 1660 Ti has a 120W TDP, 75W of which is the PCIe bus. That leaves 45W between 2 SATA ports, which should be safe, as hard drives pull about 20W from the wall.
I can't see anywhere that this motherboard is ryzen 2000 ready. You may have to borrow a 1000 or A series processor to update the BIOS. I believe AMD offers a program wherein they will lend you a CPU to update the BIOS, look into that perhaps.
The main difference for SATA SSD's is not speed (these two are about the same) but write endurance. If you want something to last a while, Samsung's SSDs are tried ant true, combined with familiar customer support. However I can't say it's worth that extra chunk of money. The Micron one is a full $100 cheaper ($112 with Canadian sales tax).
Actually, I have a pair of cheap headphones very similar to these (sub-$40 Amazon parts) and I would say that the fit is not the best and the quality is hardly audiophile, but for the price, they could very well be a great choice. I say go with it. This pair has a self-adjusting headband which I can say from experience is more comfortable for a long period of time. Just be wary that 7.1 virtual surround may not work because drivers from cheap brands are hit or miss.
Ahm... I would say both of those parts are both equally Chinese parts that will break in a short period of time. Check if there is a Free Geek or other used PC parts store near you, or look on eBay and Craigslist for good quality used motherboards is what I recommend.
You can always get him one of these
Heads up, Canada Computers also actually charges shipping on their price match, if they honour it at all. Memory Express is a much better store to shop from in terms of price beat.
6+2-pin is just a cable size meaning it can go into 6 or 8-pin cards. The graphics card itself doesn't have a 6+2-pin slot, it has an 8-pin slot, but a 6+2 or 8-pin cable will work for it. The more important thing to look at would be whether his power supply has a cable for the new graphics card, as most 1050 Ti's are bus-powered.
Fellow Canadian here. Don't buy Windows off Vuugo, they charge shipping, I recommend Microsoft's software download onto a USB of your own and then buying an activation key on the store.
are you quite sure?
What model is it, can you see?
well don't upgrade your GPU and it shouldn't fry. That PSU seems rather shady.
"Power Supply?" I recommend you keep eggs in your case so the frying is not wasted.
It's great to see you using it, I just blew off my 2600 on ebay because I didn't want to buy a motherboard... ended up spending a lot more than that on a 2400g but still. Nice build.
I was going to comment negatively on the Apple sticker, but I noticed you have the Noctua cooler and not passive cooling, so I know you don't take it seriously. I love the Chopin though, Ballade No. 4 especially. +1

This is one of the best mods I have ever seen. Despite a little lacking in cable management (I don't judge you for it, that case has no room at all for hidden cables), I think this build is one of my all-time favourites on this site. Great job on the painting, that looks very clean. Come together nicely +1
I'd like to see more build pictures instead of boxes. Just saying.
AIO coolers can operate at any angle fine. This is safe.
