Just recentley got a new PC (which I have yet to build) and was wondering how it would handle VR. Heres the build:

CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor

Motherboard: Asus Z170-A ATX LGA1151 Motherboard

Memory: Kingston HyperX Fury Black 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 Memory

Storage: 3x Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drives

Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 8GB Windforce OC Video Card

Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit

How will it do?

And, from https://www3.oculus.com/en-us/rift/ (scroll down), Oculus' recommended spec is:

Graphics Card NVIDIA GTX 1060 / AMD Radeon RX 480 or greater

Alternative Graphics Card NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD Radeon R9 290 or greater

CPU Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater

Memory 8GB+ RAM

Video Output Compatible HDMI 1.3 video output

USB Ports 3x USB 3.0 ports plus 1x USB 2.0 port

OS Windows 7 SP1 64 bit or newer
The only thing that should really improve your experience would be adding a SSD. That should cut down on load times.
