Default Help wanted with PC build

Hello, I need some experienced people to help me with a budget build. I'm focusing on the inside right now but telling me what case I should use would be much appreciated!

Intel core I5-6500

ASUS 970 PRO

EVGA GeForce GTX 970

Kingston HyperX Fury 16 GB RAM

WD 1 TB hard drive

All of this stuff above is roughly $800
(From Amazon)

Am I missing anything? Please tell me. Thanks!

Ps I'm have never built a PC before and am I trying to build something to run the HTC Vive.
Recommend HTC Vive specs:
GPU:*NVIDIA*GeForceŽ*GTX 970,*AMD*Radeon™ R9*290*equivalent or*better 

CPU:*IntelŽ*i5-4590,*AMD FX 8350*equivalent or*better ** 

RAM:*4 GB or more 

Video Output:*HDMI 1.4,*DisplayPort*1.2 or newer 

USB Port:*1x USB*2.0 or*better*port
(Totally not copy and pasted that last part:P)

Motherboard doesn't go with the CPU. Make sure the RAM is DDR4.

You're going to want more than a 970 to power a VR device, and you'll also want an SSD instead.

I'm having trouble picking a video card that's better than a 970, should I wait until the GTX 1080 comes out or would it even work with this idk.
Also the CPU Cooler says it's liquid cooled and I don't have much experience with liquid cooling so any tips on that?

You'd be better off going Skylake because the cost is the same. Also, 1080 will be 600 bucks. Yes, you'd be better off waiting until next month and getting a 1070.
