Question Buying first gaming PC for VR

Feb 23, 2019
Hey guys, I was thinking of buying my first ever gaming PC, unfortunately I’m not really tech savvy in the least bit. I was hoping someone could give me advice and tell me if this computer I’m currently looking at is okay to game and do VR on. Here’s the info on the machine. Any advice or anything really would be appreciated.

I used an rx580 with 16GB @2400 and could play most games, but had some issues with some (namely temp on the 580) But like wolf said a better mobo and simply increasing the capacity of the RAM to 32GB and the difference is noticeable. Then I upgraded to a 2700x and Vega card and not a single issue with anything I throw at it so far.
