Well, with an i7, GTX 1080, Full tower and flashy lights, it can obviously only be for one thing:

Solitaire.

For starters you'll need a PSU, either modular or not, with the proper outputs for the motherboard, processor, GPU, storage, etc.

Yeah if you got a modular supply they will all be included in the box if not then they will already be part of the PSU.

They all come with the PSU, but you also want to make sure you know which are your PCIe Power cables for the GPU and which is the EPS Cable (different from 24-Pin, usually 4+4 or 8 Pin labelled EPS) for the CPU power on the Motherboard.  Also may still need Sata power if you have an optical drive or other peripherals.

They will come with the power supply and motherboard, all you need is a cable to connect to a monitor or tv.

Everything else comes with components. Data cables with mobo, power cables with PSU, front panel connector cables with case, fan cables with fans. HDMI, DVI and DisplayPort (I think) are only ones you need to get unless you don't already have them.

Generally speaking it's good to get your psu after you pick your mobo and gpu, then you can make sure you get one with the proper cpu cable connector as well as proper gpu connectors, but as others have said the cables come with the psu. Once you have your parts figured out you can ask for help to make sure your psu has the proper cables and can handle the load might help to also get a good psu so check out this thread
