I built a PC 10 years ago and have been upgrading the graphics card and storage here and there over time. Looking to move into VR, maybe an index? Still I expect most of my time to be spent with traditional monitors.
Anyway, my current build is https://pcpartpicker.com/list/bMyfk6
Is anything worth keeping off of it besides the storage, or should I start from scratch?

Looking around some sites for other users builds I was thinking something like this if I started over
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/ynFhBZ

Maybe with an Acer Nitro XV273K 4k Monitor.

What are people's thoughts on this?

Besides storage there isn't anything I would use from your old build. For your current build there a couple changes I would make.

The WD SN550 is a better SSD for the same price as the Intel 660p. The GPU will give 92-95% of the performance of the 2070 Super for almost $100 less. The PSU is a much better PSU, there is also a 650W Corsair RMx at the same price that is very good as well. The motherboard is one of the best B450s out there and includes built in support for Ryzen 3000. The CPU cooler isn't required, but will keep the CPU cooler and is quieter.
