Spec Check :)

Hi guys,

Was hoping someone could give this is a once over and give some feedback. I've always had prebuilt gaming PC's. My current one is 10 years old but fairly good spec, however i'm looking to finally upgrade to a new system. I don't fancy trying my luck at buying the parts and building it myself. I'm confident I can do it without issue, but i'd rather just play it safe and get an expert to do it and have a nice warranty to go alongside it. I took an existing PC on the site and reconfigured some of the specs. I haven't gamed on my current system for a while due to various issues and i'm looking to get back into PC gaming again.

I want to be able to run most games at max settings in 1080p so I think i'm fine with the specs on this, however I'm not fussed about dropping some graphical settings to continue playing in the future. I also want it to be relatively future proof and don't fancy upgrading components in a few years time. Can anyone see any issues with this build at all? Compatibility issues? Recommendations for switching parts out for better parts? Ideally want to keep it around this price if possible. Happy to go up a bit if different parts are significantly better quality though :)

Things I want to do/need:
Basic photo/video editing (Photoshop, Premier Pro). I can do these on my current rig so can't imagine there would be any issues if the new rig is better spec.
Gaming at 1080p, possibly recording/streaming via Xsplit/OBS again
VR Compatible (Missus has an oculus that I want to play with)
