I recently purchased a gtx 1080 and now have $800 to build my PC. Can you guys recommend me a good build.
do you need an OS and are you planning to overclock?
any other peripherals (Mouse Keyboard etc.?)
No peripherals or windows. Thanks for the build, it's similar to what I came up with
if not overclocking, heres a solid build with an i7 for gaming and editing, in a slick case and windows for just over 800, if you can spend a touch more throw a ssd in there as a boot drive and it'll be a sick gaming/editing build.

OP said no windows, so I added an ssd and an optional cooler (recommended for silence)
Looks good to me, only recommendation i would have is to get the Cryorig H7 but thats more of a personal preference as both will do the job just fine. :)
I like the h7 also (I own one), I just thought it would be better since the i7 is locked.
truth, though i still find the H7 more aesthetically pleasing for the extra 10-15 bucks though the smaller cooler should handle the cooling on a locked chip just fine.
