Putting together a build for a friend, can't go over $600. Thoughts?

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)

 

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

Could save even more if you changed it to an matx board and put it in a Q300L

you will have 2 open dimms which will be enough to upgrade to 16GB, which is plenty. running 1 stick is not a great idea, especially 2666mhz when you have the option not to

Ryzen doesn't really like 2 dimms per channel, so we're leaving dual channel for 16gb

its 2$ over a 2 dimm kit. i dont see why he would need 32GB of Ram at any point in the future. especially when it comes at the cost of running at lower performance. trust me, the cheaper 2 dimm kit is the way to go

i think youve heavily missunderstood. Ryzen loves dualchannel memmory, Ryzen 1 and i repeat ryzen 1 had a minor issue of running all the slots populated. with Ryzen 2 that is not an issue

It will run with all 4 populated, but some of those early BIOS had problems getting beyond 2133 memory. I believe it's mostly solved, but, as GoldenLag points out, that's not much of an issue on 2nd Gen.

If I'm right OP was saying that he wants to keep the RAM to one DIMM for upgrades, also, that ssd is pretty shit, and I think they already own the gtx 1060 so no need to change to a rx 580

I just remembered the GTX 1060 is 150$, so you can save 59$ there. You can get a better SSD that way (860 EVO 500GB).

Worse CPU, worse SSD, I would rather just leave the HDD for later as an add in, and there's no need for a new 580 when the used prices are so good.

Might do so. Also, I did a build in the cougar once and while it wasn't an awful case to work in, cable managing and space was much to be desired, and the construction feels cheap overall.
