Thumbs up New PC Build

After many months of procrastination, I have finally decided to get my broken PC up and running again / upgrading the majority of my components. My boss just gave me a great deal on a brand new GTX 1080 @ $250. I was actually going to go all out this time around and purchase a top of the line GTX 1080 Ti, but @ $250 for a 1080, I will settle for second best. I am most likely going to go with an Intel 7700k processor. I still have to research which z270 motherboard to purchase. Other than that, all I need is a blu-ray burner, xspc pump/res combo, and a few other small items. As George Costanza would say, "I'm back, baby!!, I'm back!"
