Custom Build EON-17-X Gaming Laptop


Oct 16, 2014
Hello everyone, I'm considering spending around $3,346.00 pre-tax for a desktop replacement gaming laptop. Please review the specs below and give me some feedback on some of the custom parts I should switch out. For example from what I've researched I can save a couple hundred dollars on getting a 1070 instead of a 1080 if I were to go with a 1080p resolution.
