People will need to know what you plan to mine, but probably not going to do much with that build.

Unless you need proper brands, you could probably drop the price a bit on those parts.. And what will you even mine? Do you even need a I3 cpu?

Then you need an ASIC. You can mine other coins on GPUs, but BTC isn't going to make any money on a GPU. 

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.

First, I'm going to recommend NOT getting into crypto mining while the price of components is so high, it is highly likely you wont see a return on investment. a direct investment into a coin might be better at this time. note, I'm neither a financial nor economics expert.

 

If you really want to get into coin mining, dont mine bitcoin, there are far better alternatives. Look at something like Ethereum or any of the other coins that are still viable to mine on GPUs. That way you can use off the shelf hardware.

 

I personally use Nicehash and it automatically converts my pay to bitcoin. Then I use Coinbase for any trades/selling.

Nicehash mines Ethereum and gives you bitcoin, there is no reason to exchange it unless you have a particular want for ethereum. You can sell the bitcoin directly.

If you have another PCIE x16 slot, i'd recomend getting a beefy power supply and a new high-end gpu. Mine on both the 1080 and new gpu through the day and turn them off when gaming. that way you can get into mining without spending all the extra cash on a full build.
