Need a 1080 ultra settings rig.

I'm in Canada so I'm looking for prices in CAD. Looking to build a gaming rig at 1080p in ultra settings. Looking for the cheapest possible. Looking at the RX 480 or the 1070. Maybe other cards are cheaper?

I already have a case NZXT H440, psu Silverstone 1000w, monitor, keyboard and mouse. I need everything else. Thank you so much for the help.

Budget is unknown. Whatever is cheaper. No more than $800 CAD.This rig is meant to hold me off for a couple years when 4k is cheaper.

256GB ssd is plenty for me. I don't store much on my computer.

Will max most if not all settings @ 1080p. I HIGHLY suggest perusing Ebay for a GFX card particularly a 390 or 390x. You may be able to snag one for a decent price.

I really appreciate your suggestions here. I'm debating on waiting for the RX 480 or not. Comes out soon at a great price point. But everything else you suggested is awesome. Thank you so much.

Are you overclocking or not?

Not right now. I'll try to save up over the next 2 or 3 years to build my dream machine. In the meantime no.
