This is my first build that is geared towards 1440p. I thought about getting a 1080 Ti, but the 1080's are still extremely powerful cards and the Ti's are crazy expensive. Also only 16GB of RAM because all I use it for is gaming, no productivity, so there's that lol. I have been playing at 1080p for about 5 years now and I got tired of seeing all of these awesome screenshots of 1440p in games. I also got extremely salty about the Kaby Lake platform, so I sold that ENTIRE build and parted up this one. Like thousands of others, I am waiting extremely impatiently for my 8700k to ship. I plan on setting the lights up in all white. I also ordered the Rockit88 Delid/Relid kit and will be doing that before my CPU even goes in.
