Im just using this for Vr nothing else. not sure if gtx 1080i is better for vr then rtx 2080ti. Buying a pre build off amazone is my preferred option but im open to all suggestions.

Well, if I had $2500 to burn on a VR Ready System, I'd probably look at something like this:

I'd want it small and unobtrusive so as to fit in with the rest of my living room components and my big-screen HDTV.

Looks fine to me, you don't mention what kind of VR but both the HTC vive and Oculus Rift work fine on anything from a 1060 6GB or above.
I'm sure a 2080Ti is better than a 1080 Ti and easily good enough for VR, probably overkill.

I have a 1070 and an Oculus rift, everything runs fine.

Your rig looks good though, no issues obvious to me.
