Opinions on a Gtx 1080 Build

37 months ago

So I have ultimately decided that for my first real build I wish to go all out and buy a PC that can handle 1440p at 144hz, I threw together this build trying to not cheap out on too many parts but saving where I could (ex. Doesn't have to match a color scheme, RAM is RAM) I would like to ideally keep it around this price so please tell me your opinions before I buy anything.

Any reason you changed what you did? I'm just wondering and want to know to get a better idea of why you recommended these parts instead.
