Hey there! I'm looking to build my first VR machine that can also do some serious video editing. It's centered around the GTX 1070 (which I'm getting with the HTC Vive bundle.) I found this build online and I love the price point. Please let me know your thoughts - this is my first time building a PC in many years!

The Core i5-7600K would be mostly okay for VR, but it's a bad choice for video editing. Intel just recently launched a new generation of mainstream CPUs, where they have finally moved from 4 cores to 6, for pretty similar prices. So for example the Core i5-8600K would be roughly 50% better than the 7600K for video editing. And for just a few bucks more.

Alternatively there are AMD's Ryzen chips. A bit slower for gaming/VR, but better value for money especially for things like video editing. You can get either 6-core Ryzen 5 1600 or 8-core Ryzen 7 1700, and they're pretty affordable (especially when you consider the motherboard prices).

Otherwise a nice build.
