I am interested in building a NON-GAMING machine that supports both Windows 7 Home 64bit as well as Windows 10. Additionally also Linux Ubuntu and or Linux Mint.
I read on your literature that the Ryzen processors nor their associated chipsets natively support USB 3.1 Gen2 therefore I am looking for it on the motherboard.
Another issue is: Does the 1600X come with onboard graphics or will I need a discrete GPU card?
IF more than one card from ASUS support all I need which will be more appropriate for general computing, online TV watching on PC Monitor, multiple simultaneous open Website pages
No editing, no games,
You're best off asking on ASUS' forums, as the boards which have an M.2 slot do not have drivers for Windows 7, though there's nothing stopping you from using a PCIe adapter card. Even then to install Windows 7 on an NVMe drive it takes some work.
