First build: high-end gaming pc. Would love feedback

This my first high-end pc build, I originally wanted to upgrade my rig but then I realised it's a bit too old and slow. I have put together a list of parts for my new build and I would love feedback.

Parts URL: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/user/Panda_Shreked/saved/6fC999
(This build's pricing is in Australia)
Update: Changed my psu

My budget was $2000AUD (around $1500USD) but I can definitely stretch my budget for more performance.

I was thinking of getting a second-hand gtx 1080 off ebay because the 1080 ti has just come out and people are selling their 1080s for decent prices. I don't know if it is a good idea to buy preowned components though.

I am not too sure about the power supply, the one I have chosen doesn't have a listed price, but it is selling for about $100 AUD right now.
