The 1080 and a i5 makes absolutely no sense.

What specific PSU is it?
What case?
What monitor are you using?

What case have you got?
Want to narrow your budget down a little? $250-500 is pretty vague.
What monitor are you using?
Sounds like you have one of the cheapo 80+white or bronze rated EVGA PSUs. If it's one of the lower quality ones, it would be worth replacing IMO.

Why? I don't think a i5 6500 will bottleneck a 1080.

Could spend a bit more for a better PSU, like a Gold rated Seasonic unit or an EVGA G2/G3 unit. Also, add an SSD if you don't already have one.

Okay, Quick question what does an SSD really even do?

Pretty much speeds up your entire system when you install your OS on it. Plus, it's pretty much a necessity IMO for games like GTA V and such.
