I just checked that PSU on Amazon and scrolled down the specifications of the listing.

Date First Available July 11, 2007.

Please don't use this PSU with a 1080ti unless you want it to burn :)

I would replace that PSU asap. 13 years old model PSU.

Any Recommendations?

Antec makes decent power supplies.
Your unit has a 6 pin and an 8 pin output.
That is what a normal GTX1080ti requires.
There are some factory overclocked cards out there that need two 8 pin connectors which you do not have.
Do not buy one of those versions.
Here is a handy chart for other graphics cards:

I would not worry so long as your psu has been running well.
Do you mean as the 1080ti would work on my current PSU? I've had no problems with it
 
It seems to be based on a really old, but individually regulated unit. Maybe related to Seasonic SS-HT, I'd rank it among the bare minimum PSUs compared to modern ones. I'd worry about aging, though. 10-year-old+ PSU isn't something that you should use to power a high-end GPU IMO.

Also what kind of PSU would you recommend me getting say if I wanted to get either a 1080ti or one of the top of the lines graphics cards?

So long as you will use a normal GTX1080ti with only a 6 pin and 8 pin connector, you should be ok.

As to a replacement psu, I like the seasonic focus units.
The seasonic focus GX650 actually has 4 6+2 outputs.
Gold rated with a 10 year warranty.

The 750w version is not much more:
