    If you are building a "rendering" rig then you should go x79, x99 or Ryzen.

    MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 6 GB

    I think the prices should be checked again to come up with the performance per dollar info. And I'm wondering if latest drivers were used, how much the performance figures would change.

    PSU dead now?

    CX600 are known to have problems - cheap faulty caps. As above - TRY ANOTHER PSU.

    PSU question Regarding GPU upgrades

    I go on RealHardTech's recommendations - http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm - 1000W for a PC with 2 x Fury X. I have 2 x Nanos - 750W. I don't OC them though - you can't really. All that happens is that they go a slight bit faster and a lot hotter.

    Never used RAM Slot broke???

    I'd have a go at cleaning the slot out first. Fluid eg IsoPropyl/Rubbing alcohol is OK. Just blow it out with air and let it dry out before trying it. Put a ram stick in and out several times too.

    Which 1060

    Gaming at 4K with a 1060 wouldn't be recommended. Even a 980Ti would struggle. So monitor resolution, GPU and whether gaming and what games and settings all make a difference - they are relevant. The 980Ti would be a better choice over the 1060 eg...

    Which 1060

    Hmm - this is getting hard to help. First no mention of 4K monitor. Then 4K/1440p added. Now not for gaming.

    Which 1060

    The OP said he wants to play on 4K. I think he should aim for 30fps at the least. See http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-3154527/1080p-gtx-1060.html and http://www.pcgamer.com/geforce-gtx-1060-review/

    PCI x16 running significantly slow!! Help!!

    I don't think there's a manufacturing fault with the motherboard. Just a dumb design idea to have the logo too near pcie slot 1. Running at 1.1 at idle is normal - so do my cards. So I don't think you have a problem at all.

    PCI x16 running significantly slow!! Help!!

    So looks like your choice is x16 or led ROG logo with x8.

    "for flight simming" is gaming.

    PCI x16 running significantly slow!! Help!!

    No - it will be that the second slot runs at x8 and the first slot runs at x16 if there's no second card but x8 if there is a second card. What is this LED that gets covered up? Your mobo - https://www.asus.com/au/Motherboards/ROG-MAXIMUS-VIII-HERO-ALPHA/overview/
