My GTX 1080 Strix I got as a warranty replacement from Asus for my GTX 980Ti Strix with a failing fan. It was new in the box too:





Installed. Will soon be replacing the case with, probably, a Corsair 570x

I'll showcase my Skylake build here (full specs in my sig).

October
Bought i5-6600K, MSI Z170A Gaming M5, Kingston Savage 2x 4GB DDR4 3000 Mhz, Arctic Freezer i32, Arctic F12 PWM PST, Arctic MX4. Missing from picture is Win 7 Pro SP1 64-bit OEM DVD.

2 weeks later
Bought MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X 3G.

December
Bought Seasonic PRIME 650 and Corsair 760T black v2.

Christmas
Got nice and comfy chair as a Christmas present. It's not part of the system but it's one piece of the whole set of my Skylake build.

And here's a close-up pic of my Skylake build. Showing off the cable management and case badges.
Since i'm missing the Corsair ML series fans and NZXT HUE+ to complete my Skylake build, had to use flash to see inside the dark case. I'll post more pics once i have more goodies. (Got few building pics as well if anyone is interested.)

An inexpensive AS Media USB 3.1 card to go with Oculus Rift!!, bought with help from Christmas gift $. Loving VR. I built my rig for it so it's nice to get it.
Loving everyone's upgrades. Full systems, GPUs, CPUs, PSs. Upgrades are too much fun. How will I ever stop? Sweet LE power supply Blackbird.

For my secondary rig I side-graded the case from a HAF-X to a 780T, upgraded from an H80i to a Kraken X61, eplaced a bad PSU with an EVGA 1000W G2, and replaced my horrible MSI Z87 G45 witha Z87 Asus Maximus VI Formula.

I rescued this Alienware ALX from ebay; replaced the 4x2GB 1333Mhz RAM with 4x4GB 1600Mhz Corsair Vengeance. For the GPU, first I tried my spare 390X, which booted fine, but proved too much load on the PSU for gaming (it is a PITA to pull out and replace these PSUs on this series of Alienware), so I bought a STRIX GTX 1060 and good to go. Which means this must have come with the 525W version of the PSU.
