Could you guys piece a pc for 1700 USD? I already have the gpu so don’t need that (GTX 1080). I use it for gaming. I don’t need peripherals and don’t need OS. I have 2 1080p screens.

An 8'th/9'th gen Intel chip, i5 or above and a 1080 will be well more than enough to drive 1080p for quite some time to come.

You could drop as far back as Haswell refresh if you wanted to save a little money, though you will be buying used for that, and still see very competitive performance to today's chips.

Outside of that, a motherboard that has the features (and IO) that you need, accessories, and a case that fits your aesthetic style is entirely subjective.

There's never been a better time to invest in an SSD or two, as their prices have dropped quite rapidly over the last few months.

9900k doesnt game noticeably better than 8700k, so no point spending $200 extra for that. Replace the CPU with 9700k if you don't want to delid it yourself

 

A cooler to cool the CPU.

 

This mobo rather than Gigabyte's Z390 Aorus boards or even Asrock's Extreme4 because of its still excellent VRM (not using 9900k here does help), and OC friendly features like post code display and BIOS reset switch. Too bad they are on the motherboard's front rather than the rear I/O, but at least they exist.

 

EX920 performs like a 970 Evo btw, but cost less.

 

ML120 fan intended to be an exhaust fan at the back, while I suggest the stock case fans that comes with the case to go up on top of the case.

 

1440p 144Hz Gsync IPS monitor, as the budget allows.
