Provide any additional details you wish below.

Looking for a reasonable cost for a gaming build that will last around 5 years for solid gaming at a reasonable frame rate.

I have made a choice to go with a GTX 1080 rather than a 1070 for the fact that it is only about $100-$150 more in Aus ($75-$115 USD) to get this card over a 1070. They are similar in price thanks to the miners......

Plus the Zotac GTX 1080 AMP Extreme also appears to have the highest OC out of the box of any of the 1080 cards.

Hoping this is a good build for a first timer and that it will last. I was originally going to select an Intel chip however after reading post after post after post, I have decided to go with the Ryzen 5 1600 and I will overclock it to maximize performance. Also seems the Ryzen will better in the future.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, Happy to make some adjustments if needed or happy to be told if this build will not really go together well.

BTW, I will be using my existing 1 and 3Tb HDDS in this build which is why they have been excluded.

If I have left anything out please let me know.

I have added the permalink too just in case it did not format correctly above.
