I built a quick X399 build when I got the 1950X on a super sale. I had some spare parts laying around, and a bunch of sales over time. Now I would like to get it to being my main development PC.
Issues I am having is the ram is not clocking to 2666. I figure this is because I have 2 different brands. Because I have 2 different brands can I get them both clocked to 2666? I am thinking of buying a kit that is 128Gb 8 sticks of 16gb is this a good idea? I read somewhere that maxing out the DIMM slots is not the best thing to do performance wise, is this correct?
I would like to upgrade the graphics card. I want to give linux a go, what would be the best fit there? I also would like to do KVM passthrough. I figure the Radeon 580 or 590 would be good. I mostly RDP into this box right now is this possible with linux without VNC?
