Building a PC for a friend

Hey Awesome nerd community! I'm working on my second build ever and it's for a friend I think I did a good job but I have limited knowledge on this. He wants general gaming and to be able to use an HTC Vive with this I believe it should be able to handle it, but tell me what you think all comments appreciated.
