Are you planning on upgrading the whole system at once or bit-by-bit?

Either way that should be a huge upgrade for you, though I would recommend an AIO cooler over a large air cooler these days.

looks good. do you really need 750W? 650W is plenty. May even go down to 550W. As for AIOs, the H100i V2 is really good. Though the fans are quite load when temps get high, I'm personally thinking of buying new fans for mine.

I would just buy the 1080 you want first and see how that goes.

If you have the money then I don't see an issue with list except for the PSU. Could get away with a 650watt.

As for the AIO, for that price you could probably get away without spending too much more for a solid AIO. Corsair/NZXT make good ones.

The H1xx series from Corsair are cheaper and still very nice.

I wouldn't bother with any 120 AIO personally. I would get the 240.
Which one you looking at in particular?

edit: Just curious but have you looked into Ryzen? I was looking at prices and it's so much cheaper. Granted it will be slower but just worth a mention if you wanted to save money.

I was looking at the Corsair H100i V2 just not that keen on Ryzen really but it does sound like its getting a lot more popular
