So I decided to build a Gaming/VR rig and would appreciate any feedback on my choices-

My budget was $1500 and I've pretty much come in just over budget so I'm pretty happy-

Components-

Case InWin 301 Micro ATX (WHITE)
Processor Intel Core i7-7700K Quad Core 4.2GHz
Motherboard ASUS ROG STRIX Z270G mATX
Graphics Card GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 8GB
CPU Cooler Corsair Hydro H55 120mm
RAM 16GB (2x8) CORSAIR Vengeance White (3200)
Power Supply SeaSonic M1211 Fully Modular 620W
Hard Drive Samsung M2 NVMe 250GB
Hard Drive WD Blue 1TB
Cables White Power Cables (Phantek)
Cables White SATA Cables (2)
Cables DP to HDMI Cable 6ft
Fans 4 AsiaHorse Solar Eclipse Blue 120mm Fans

For now this will all connect to a Samsung 4K TV but this will be upgraded in the future.

I'm hoping the cooling will suffice but think I've managed a pretty solid build at a good price point- thoughts?

h55 isn't the best, it is alright, the H5 universal is better option IMO (air)

Give us an idea of what you want to play.

What all do you need?
Is it a HTPC? or a personal?

Would've grabbed a 2-3tb drive (whichevers cheaper @7200krpm). Personally with the progress Ryzen has gotten i would go AMD/Intel in most cases now.
