Gpu compatibility with a AAEON motherboard "IMBM-Q170A"

Friend got a pc with this motherboard and was wondering if a 2080 would work with it. Looked on the website a lot but didn't find anything specifically on gpu compatibilitys.

When it comes to graphics card compatibility, the only thing that typically matters is that the motherboard has a PCIe slot that can physically fit the graphics card, unless the motherboard is extremely old and uses PCIe 1.0 with no forwards compatibility. What CPU is this motherboard outfitted with?

 

What you should ensure instead is that the power supply is sufficient for the 2080, because it's rather demanding in terms of watts.

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

 

Primary PC:

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)

 

Trash beauty:

Xeon X5550RX 570 4GB (defective) -Fattydove Racing 240GB - WD Blue 320GB - HP Z400 - 6x2GB DDR3 1066 - EVGA 450W3

 

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

Check with my friend it's a i5 5600. Though he is looking to upgrade to an i7.

Yeah don't the 6th and 7th gen i7's cost so much money on the used market still you are FAR better off just ditching the platform and going newer. Be it new or used.

 

That and both the 6700(k) and 7700(k) are REALLY at the end of being a gaming capable cpu.

Where would a good cpu/motherboard combo be at?

5600X and a B550.

5600x will run you about 200,

B550 from ASRock (my preferred) about $110 for a good one.

That's wide range of processors

I'm guessing your friend meant an i5-6500 because that would be a 6th gen CPU.

 

An i7-6700 or 7700 close to $100 or even $80 if you're lucky is a good price for an older part like that. But if you're paying like $120 or more, the value is not very good and you should consider a different CPU and motherboard.

Really depends on the games you're playing, but combined with this RTX 2080 I get the sense that OP's friend might have some lofty gaming expectations.

For now they are just ok. But the day the xbox one and ps4 fall away is the day those cpus pretty much become instantly not enough

Depends. If you want to go new new a 12400f + b660 board that supports ddr4 sets you back about 260$.

 

If you go a bit older a 10400f + b460 board is close to 160$
