It looks like everything in that system, aside from the graphics card is all set for VR. As for a list of "VR" graphics cards, I wouldn't go with any card lower than a GTX 1060 6GB and for very demanding titles a 1070 ti.
Personally, I have a founders edition cooler GTX 1080 and that seems to be able to run every VR title I've come across well. As for the new RTX cards, I don't have much experience with them and don't know how they stack up with the 10 series in terms of VR specific performance. That's not to say "don't get an RTX card" just that I don't know enough about them to definitively recommend it.

just get the 2080ti if you don't mind the high price tag
otherwise the gtx 1070ti or RTX 2070 should be able to handle most vr games
with the 2070 being around 15-20% faster than the 1070ti while costing some 150 bucks more
