Hi I have not got a clue about VR / Gaming Pc.

I have watched Youtube video's etc about VR Gaming Pc but I am none the wiser please help!
These are a couple of PC I have found that have been recommended to be future proof?

    there is no such things as future proof in tech.
    Completely understand that, but will she get at least 5 years out of one of these pc without having to upgrade?

    You are mixing up "wants" and "needs" - her gaming requirements will change as she gets older and it is highly unlikely she will be happy with the same box 5 years later.

    Both of those are overkill. Best go get the optimal point of price performance curve and sell and trade up in a few years.

    Cost of extra performance goes exponential

    You can just swap out the hard drive in future or reinstall the games

    Or you could save your files in the cloud to redownload or can back up to external drive. (edited)

    Their CPUs are already two generations out of date and make the system not worth the asking price. Grossly overpriced.
    CPU is the I9 right ? I was told these are the latest ?

    The latest tech is pretty much out of date by the time you unpack and set it up
    "My new computer's got the clocks, it rocks
    But it was obsolete before I opened the box"

    If you want a little further proof, I would get Core i5 13600K with DDR 5 RAM.
    GPU would depends if you wait for RTX 4070
