Nothing wrong with that setup - a higher-mid range quad core CPU like yours is currently the best choice for most games at the moment and the GTX970 is just about perfect for 1080P gaming on most titles even brand new ones.

You should get plenty of use out it before you need to throw anything at it and even then the only thing you'd likely need is a bigger GPU in a year or two.

Nice!

I'm going to build a new PC probably midway through this year. Current motherboard is chucking the shits with USB3 (rejecting drivers and other shit) so no AC WiFi and other stuff. My last PC motherboard was ok, PC before that had clicking sound issues, then the sound card/chip died... Think I'll stop skimping on motherboards or getting older models.
Ideally want the PC for VR, got my eyes on the Vive Pro. But latest Intel chip forces win 10 booooo

Wow, i3?

I haven't had any issues with Win10. Just make sure you turn off all the data collection crap.

So did a dummy/quote for new build...

Zotac GTX1080 mini 8gb DDR5
i5 8600 coffee lake (with noctua low profile fan)
MSI Z370M motherboard
Corsair 16gb (2x8) DDR4 3000MHz
ADATA 480gb M.2 SSD
EVGA 650W G+ PSU

Undecided on my case... going Micro ATX and I really love my current Fractal Design R2 micro but apparently this case is great: https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/55813

at the end of the day its to run the HTC Vive Pro with new 2.0 lighthouses and new controllers. Its expensive, but my first venture into VR and im pretty excited.
