Overall Review: My current pc lasted 12 years (trusty ga-x58a-udr3) and is still going strong but was time for an upgrade. While I don't do significant gaming, I want something that is up to the task but will also last for awhile. For the price and features, this TUF z590 is great. Booted up without any issues. The BIOS is a nice change from what I had and the build quality is excellent. I use a discrete gpu but having the onboard graphic outputs were a requirement as I believe they are needed to ensure Quick Sync functionality (I am not 100% sure on this). Using this, an ML360R, i9 10900k, 16gb Ballistic ram, and an RX850 in my HAF932. Couldn't be happier. The only thing I had to do was install a dummy hdmi dongle into the mobo hdmi port since when using the hdmi on my video card I was getting a white VGA light. Everything worked without issue even with the light but the dongle has resolved that so far.

Great Video Card
