Due to the 1080 Ti release and the subsequent 1080 price drop, I was able to fit a 1080 into this build, although I assumed no OS/monitor/peripherals because you didn't follow the posting guidelines.

Great parts across the board.

This is definitely not the best performance you can get for the money.

The H60 is a very poor bang-for-the-buck cooler, you'd get the same performance out of something like the Cryorig H7. You won't see real-world differences between an 850 EVO and almost any other SSD in a gaming build. The RX 480 is a better performer for the money in almost all cases than the 1060, and in this budget, you should definitely be able to fit in a 1070. The NEX is awful for the money, the G2 costs the same and is a far more reliable performer.

The AIO is of awful value, you can get much much better performance for less while being quieter by going with a HSF. The board is meh. Too much for that RAM, you can get 3000Mhz RAM for around $110. That SSD is of bad value, you can get similar real world performance with cheaper SSD's. You could get a RX 480 for less and it would still be equivalent to it. The NexG isn't a good PSU, its average all around and is competing with units way out of its league.
