Nice!

Also a GTX 1080 (blower card) here, still works and benchmarks very well for being almost 4 years old.

Personally, I skipped the NVIDIA 2xxx series without any regrets but will be taking a very good look at the 3xxx Ampere series!
Ampere would crash it !
Nice idea try to sell it as soon as possible if possible in order to save up for Ampere.

I know, but I find the UAC app annoying and I mostly use my pc to game on Steam and such so the Steam games should not be asking for administrator privileges.
It's because whole Steam is a security mess.

But this doesn't mean that you should disable UAC. Your account is now on Windows XP level! Highly dangerous, specially for normal end user

Some remarks : never I repeat NEVER only rely on cloudbackup, its like playing russian roulette when Servers get hit nu a ransom attack, your data is lost! Backup your data on a physical external drive! Using macrium reflect free!

Ditch everything Chrome related and replace with Firefox and tweak ff with the privacytools.io guidelines.

Never sign in with a Microsoft account : data harvesting , telemetry.

Disagree. Firefox has weak security, malicious ways for telemetry and only care about money

tweak ff with the privacytools.io guidelines.
This makes your browser unique and only worse when using their misleading guide.

Never sign in with a Microsoft account : data harvesting , telemetry.
Disagree again. Using online Microsoft Account for Windows provide best security, backup settings (sync) and more.
Also you have full control about your data and privacy
Also you need to learn what telemetry is. It's not about spying user's
