Clarification Request
Why the case?

Cases are eye candy. Use any old case.

Why the GTX 1080? You didn't reveal if you are 4K gaming which this is still not enough. Move to 1080p gaming and consider the 1060. The PSU looks overpriced. Shop SINGLE RAIL MODELS.

The RAM looks to be cheaper on Crucial too.

The objective is to run Ark: Survival Evolved at 60fps, 1080p. Case was to try and sell my computer I have right now however it's likely cheaper to just keep it. Could you recommend a PSU? Thank you for the help!
