Kinda depends on what the standards are for those things. Almost any machine will do all those things.
The GPU will do ok at 1440p but there are a lot of games that could tank it down under 60fps.
Like I said, it really depends on what you're expecting it to do.
If your goals are 1080p/60+ yeah that's great, 1440p/60 would be pretty good in most games but I'm not really sure what sort of max framerate to expect out of the CPU. Streaming would be do-able but I'd want more cores if that's a priority.
VR...what exactly are we trying to run and how well?
The PSU is crap though.
The ram should be fine but I'd check the QVL, the 1000 series was pretty particular about ram speed.

Also why a Ryzen first gen CPU?
It's cheap?
