Hi, i'm new to this community and thought i'd give it a shot. So about a year ago i got my income tax and went to micro center to build a custom pc, i got a pretty good deal (from what i knew) and got an 'ok' build for around 800 dollars. Problem is i didn't put enough effort into finding the right build that could allow for upgrades. So i'm wondering if my pc build below is good enough for vr with mixed reality headset that won't have noticeable lag.

Motherboard: MSI 970a SLI Krait Edition
CPU: AMD FX 8320e 3.2GHz(overclocked to 4.0GHz)
GPU: AMD RX 480 Gaming X 8GB
Memory to be replaced: Not sure the brand but it's 8GB(2 x 4GB) DDR3 1866MHz
Memory: G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 2133MHz (shipping today from amazon)
Power Supply: CORSAIR CX650M 650W 80 PLUS BRONZE
Hard Drive: TOSHIBA HDWD110 1 TB 7200 rpm\
SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB SATA III (shipping today from amazon)

If i could also be told what to replace in case my current build just lacks upgradability. Thanks for your time!

You're right about being stuck. The 480 outclasses the 8320 and the only way to remedy that is to get a new board which means new RAM and a lot more money. That being said, your rig is ready for mixed reality or something like the Oculus Rift. https://wccftech.com/amd-processor-list-oculus-rift-vr-pc/
