Looking to make some changes (modern and quality of life changes to my current build)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So just yesterday my GTX 1080 Died on me while I was doing an essay. I've sent off my RMA request and now just waiting on what EVGA responded with, its also my birthday coming up in a few weeks and I've decided that I've wanted to make some slight modern upgrades to my PC, preferably in the motherboard,case & CPU Cooler  department, my main this is that I want so more modern features on my pc (m.2 support, type C connection) hell my pc doesn't even have a Bluetooth or WiFi adapter built in. 

 

Here are my current specs I'll be getting £300 around my birthday and some more later one.

When I originally got this build ready I intended on SLI with the 1080, changed my mind and got a decent monitor instead.
