  Works perfectly
What works:

Machine: HP Slim Desktop 290-p0xxx
CPU: 6 core Intel Core i7-8700
Graphics:
Device-1: NVIDIA GP108 [GeForce GT 1030] vendor: Gigabyte driver: nvidia
Audio:
Device-1: Intel Cannon Lake PCH cAVS vendor: Hewlett-Packard

Device-2: Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet
Drives: HDD Total Size: 512.1GB (12.9% used)
ID-1: /dev/nvme0n1 model: Samsung_SSD_970_PRO_512GB size: 512.1GB
Memory: Memory: 1583.4/15898.6MB

What doesn't work:

Network:
Card-1: Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11ac PCIe Wireless Network Adapter

This is the WiFi card that came installed in the computer. Had to compile an out of branch driver to get it to work. This was a no-go since I test so many distros.

What was done to make it work:

Swapped out the WiFi card for out of the box Linux support:
Removed: Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11ac PCIe Wireless Network Adapter
Replaced with: Intel Wireless-AC 9560, a $15.00 part off Amazon.

Additional notes:

Other than the WiFi issue which has been resolved, this is my daily driver Mint computer. Low power and very quiet with dual 25 inch HDMI displays.
