Yes it will. You should check the Product Specification in the product page first for better understanding. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, Dell has literally listed every ports and slots it has and also the Display Outs present in different Graphics Cards it comes with. From that
NVIDIA® GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER™ 6GB GDDR6: 1x HDMI 2.0b, 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 1x Dual Link DVI
So, it can support up to three monitors.

It's a desktop, not a Laptop. So, the motherboard ports will come from the CPU if it has a Integrated GPU and the GPU has its own ports. Do basic research.

Read the Ports and Slots at the bottom of the page. It has the list of every Graphics card and the display out each of those offers. Check the option for GTX 1660 SUPER it has.

That marching pair story is a overly exaggerated myth. Just buy a decent DDR4 2666 MHz Ram and you will be okay. For best performance, once you buy this, use CPU-Z to see the timing of the Ram and then buy one with similar timing.

This CPU cooler is a direct fit instead of stock. I got down from 82C to 53C. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08F21X...UTF8&psc=1

Tips for installation:
1) remove cooler and CPU, clean old paste
2) install new cooler base - adjust the screws
3) remove cooler base, plug in cooler fan
4) install CPU and drop of thermal paste
5) install cooler base ( note letter V orientation, so you don't have it upside down like me
6) install fan on cooler base
Just wanted to say thank you for including the power supply details in the title!
Likewise!! That needs to be mandatory for PC posts on SD.

Just took advantage of the Dell deal along with the Amex offer. Other than the above tip, I was reading in the other thread about thermal pads for the memory on the GPU?

I'm a complete newb when it comes to tinkering on the insides of computers. Any other tips or cooling mods you recommend for this desktop?

This model has onboard graphics so you could take out the GPU, and sell it locally or on eBay. Thanks for the post.
