I would get something like a RX 580. They tend to be cheap now and deliver performance slightly better than a GTX 1060.

They're actually near identical, with the 1060 pulling ahead in some cases.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Might be, but at the current pricing the 580 is a better buy.

Nope, just pop it in.  You'd just have to turn off onboard video in the BIOS.

Hi guys,

 

I have been given a Zotax 1050 OC for my build but I was wondering, At it's price, If I have 2 of those in my build, would my perferomance get better or is it just a waist of money. I'm happy with what I am getting right now but at it's price, maybe it could be a good idea ?

 

Thanks!

The GTX 1050 doesn't support SLI. You wouldn't see any performance gain, just higher energy usage. I'd sell both and pick up an RX 580 or GTX 1060 instead.

Sincerely,

 

me
