Looking to build a PC that is better than my laptop (even slightly). My laptop is below:

*Graphics Video Card SLI (2x) - NVIDIA® GeForce™ GTX 980M (16.0GB total) Total

-Available Graphics Memory: 16356 MB

-Dedicated Video Memory: 8192 MB

-System Video Memory: 0 MB

-Shared System Memory 8164 MB

*Sager - 4th Generation Intel® Haswell Core™ i7-4910MQ

*Primary Hard Drive - SanDisk Extreme PRO-Series Solid State Drive SDSSDXPS-480G-G25 (2.5", SATA Revision 3.0, 6Gb/s 480GB Storage) (upgraded/installed after initial purchase)

*Secondary Hard Drive - 500GB SSD Samsung 840 EVO 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal (upgraded/installed after initial purchase)

*Secondary Hard Drive - 1TB 7200RPM [SATA II - 3GB/s]
*Optical Drive Bay 6X Blu-Ray Burner + 8X DVDRW/CDRW Super Multi Combo

*Wireless Network Sager - Bigfoot Networks Killer™ Wireless-N 1202 + Bluetooth

*16GB DDR3 1600MHz [2x8GB] Kingston HYPER X Memory

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Requirements:
1. Better Graphics
2. Better CPU
3. At least 250GB SSD
4. At least 16GB RAM

Prefer:
1. Full Tower ATX to upgrade later when I have funds
2. Under $1000
3. Compatible with GTX 1080 ti for future upgrade

Right now i just need a quick replacement because the laptop is gone, but ultimately I want to make a top build when I have the extra funds so would be nice to have bare minimum with the space to upgrade. This is why for now I just want anything that is better than my laptop which was a pretty damn good laptop.

Since you said your upgrading, this rig might look a bit odd, but it's 100% designed to be upgraded to a 1080 TI and Core i7 8700k:

Is going over $20 ok?
