I am looking for a gaming pc that can run skyrim, fallout 4 maxed with hundreds of mods such as enbs, mods that add nps and add scripts, basically a pc that can handle a heavily modded skyrim game. I would like this pc to fit a GTX 1080 in if Possible. No need for a monitor, keyboard or mouse as of now. Looking to get well under 1000 dollars with this built but as I said my Max budget is 1000 dollars. If I absolutely can't fit the GTX 1080 in this pc I am looking for the next best thing at a cheaper price. Thank you

Basically dumped all of the money into the GPU (within reason of course, I didn't cut corners).

Those aren't super CPU heavy games even with mods so the 2600 will have no problem.

Got a good B450 board.

Got 3000Mhz 16GB RAM.

Got a 500Gb SSD becasue with some mods those games can take forever to load. You can always add more storage later. If load time isn't a concern but you want a bit more storage get a 1TB HDD.

I didn't get a GTX 1080. I got something better. The 1080 is last gen and the 2070 is a all around better card.

The case has a mesh front, tempered glass, and a basement. Added a extra fan for front intake. Can't ask for much at this budget.

Got a CXM. Normally I would like to put a bit better PSU in the build but the CXM is still fine.

$1.7 under your max budget.
