Well that's a great build for a rig. It seems that you have the budget for it but if youre gonna make it next year. I recommend waiting for something until then. JUST SAYIN SO

If you can afford that, it's really top-tier build and you'll be able to game on that for long period of time.
I'd personally switch GTXI080 for AMD's RX480 because you have similar performance for SO MUCH cheaper (for 450$ cheaper IIRC) and the fact that NVIDIA graphic cards don't have decent Linux drivers, but it's just matter of personal preference and needs I guess.
