My Personal Build, Eos the overpriced beast

   In Greek mythology, Ēōs (/ˈiːɒs/; Ancient Greek: Ἠώς, or Ἕως, Éōs, "dawn", pronounced [ɛːɔ̌ːs] or [éɔːs]; also Αὔως, Aúōs in Aeolic)
    is a Titaness and the goddess[1] of the dawn, who rose each morning from her home at the edge of the Oceanus.
    (or those weird lip balm things)

Love this thing to death and play on it everyday. Runs alotta games at Ultra Settings at 1440p60. lots of upgrades planned.

Tell me how bad I did!


   Added Sound card because I wanted the extra ports and Dolby 7.1

Upgrades Planned:

   Adding a 500GB m.2 ssd for the C: drive for expansion from 128GB and the prettiness of M.2

   Liquid Cooling the reference GTX 980 so my bedroom isn't always at 89 degrees Fahrenheit every night

   Buying the IPS ROG Swift (PG279Q) It was announced recently and I cant wait to sell my kidney to get it.

   Buying another PB278Q for the Tri-Monitor setup

   Buying another 980 for SLI so I can actually run the 1440p144 panel

   Getting a couple 1TB SSDs when those go down in price thanks to the "3D" architecture.

Mistakes to learn off of:

   Should've gotten at least a 250GB SSD because only a few months down the line I only have 30GB free.

   Blue-ray drive was stupid I thought it would be okay and since I was already selling my liver in order to afford this I thought why not. Nope, 
   any good blue-ray software was over $100 and since I will only use it twice in my entire lifetime
    I should've gotten a simple $20 that would've worked fine.

   The RAM could be said as overboard since I barely cap 9GB. If I had gotten 16GB that would've left A little extra money in the budget.

   The 850 watts is fine but based on the theme of this build I should gone for the more High end AX series from corsair

   For the motherboard I should've gotten the ROG Hero VII, basiclly the same specs but with better over clocking support

(no organs were taken during the funding of this over priced beauty)

Love it! Little expensive, but you do get 1440p at a 178 degree viewing angle. Beautiful colors and great size. I plan on getting another one later for the dream setup.
