    I know it is a 1000W power supply. Can you tell me if it is a PFC? Need to know for my purchase of a UPS. Also, one of the questions was,"can a second graphics card be added later"? It wasn't answered. Does this motherboard support two graphics cards?   (2 Answers)

      Answer

      Short Answer: No. Don't try it. You'll be really sad if you do. Long Answer: Technically speaking yes. The computer comes with an MSI Z270-A Pro, which supports AMD crossfire; however, it does NOT support Nvidia SLI. So, if you took out the GTX 1080 and put in say two Raedon Pro Duos yes you'd have two functional graphics cards in it. Is this advisable? No, no, and a third time no. This is a stupid idea that would be terribly expensive and definitely not deliver any performance boost. A GTX 1080 outstrips all AMD graphics cards at this point in time and multiple GPUs suffer from a diminishing returns (ie the second one will provide half the performance of the first and a third or fourth will provide almost zero benefit). Additionally, while the motherboard may support this, many games you want to play will not. All this factored together would mean that you'd have worse graphics that are less reliable and more expensive than if you'd have stuck with the 1080. It would be cheaper to purchase a single GTX 1080 Ti or even a Nvidia Titan Xp than to try the crossfire plan and it would probably result in better graphics.

        Answer

        It's matte. Does not look cheap at all. It's pretty sweet especially with the tempered glass on the side.

      Does it come with 2x16gb ram or 4x8gb? If I wanted to expand to 64 gb memory (which this motherboard supports), does it have more slots available if it already has 4x8gb installed?   (2 Answers)

        Answer

        It comes with 4x8gb RAM and it only has 4 slots, so if you wanted to go to 64gb, you will have to replace the 4 that comes with the PC

            Yes, that's what I bought it for. My fiancé is a lighter and compositor so that should answer your question. Renders are fast and smooth. Running maya, nuke and photoshop to name a few.

            Got mine home and it was plug and play. Just had to wait for Windows 10 to do its thing and it was ready to go. Great system so far after four weeks.
