And you can get Win 7 too, it makes no difference build-wise.

I suggest adding an SSD for primary storage.

A GTX 1080 will be bottlenecked by a 1080p monitor, unless playing like super intense games, and as jgb530 said, I would get an SSD, for a boot drive at the least.

I just like windows 7 over 10 and what kind of cooler would you recommend?

Okay, I didn't realize it took more then a good graphics card to get better frames. And Loglino's list looks a lot better then mine, it certainly looks more thought out.
