Nothing too special about it. It's the best I can get of what I am willing to spend on right now. There's plenty of room for improvements and I wish to get some expert advice from all you sexy people of the ROG community until I can finalize this build.

When you scroll down you will find a section regarding compatibility. Not that there is a serious one, but can someone explain this to me further? Will there be consequences about this or is it nothing to be worried about?

Compatibility Notes
The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6.0 Gb/s port is disabled.


Please, critique my build. I call it the Ghost Fury

Thinking about which version of the 1080 Ti is the "best"..

And if I should get a much wider monitor w/ higher resolution or do multiple screens instead. Both? :rolleyes:

More digging, I ended up replacing my initial GPU pick which was the EVGA - GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB FTW3 GAMING iCX Video Card. I replaced it to the Asus - GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB STRIX GAMING OC Video Card.

Because it has better cooling and less noise. Check here -- https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/2905-asus-1080-ti-rog-strix-review-vs-ftw3-gaming-x

Changed my Mobo from ROG MAXIMUS X HERO (WI-FI AC) to the ROG MAXIMUS X CODE.

Reason for the change is solely for cosmetic purposes. I love how the Code covers some of its part making them less exposed as compared to the Hero.

Would you rather 2x ASUS VG278Q 27” Full HD 1080p 144Hz 1ms (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/zLkj4D/asus-vg278q-270-1920x1080-144hz-monitor-vg278q) or ROG Swift PG27VQ Curved Gaming Monitor – 27 inch 2K WQHD (2560x1440), overclockable 165Hz, 1ms, G-SYNC (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/d9WfrH/asus-rog-swift-pg27vq-270-2560x1440-165hz-monitor-pg27vq)

I think I'll wait and see what the 1180 is about before purchasing the already expensive 1080 Ti..
