I built this out of curiosity to see just how bad one of these boards could be. I hooked up a gt 1030 2gb ddr5 version. Now I know these board are not meant for gaming. Results showed no difference from the integrated to a dedicated GPU. CPU bottleneck can't even keep up with the integrated so if you do build one don't waste money on a GPU not even a gt 710 because I even tried that. Now the good news It runs windows 10 well and as a steaming machine its great. So if you want new and are building a PC for grandma it's pretty good. Though I would rather build a used system or a Ryzen APU system before this. I'd almost never consider this.
