Build help/new builder

Have no idea what to look for. First time researching into a home build, need advice on what would suit best for:

High end gaming Vr capabilities Home office

Any help would be appreciated. I figured it may be worth a shot here rather than trying to find some prebuilt pc that is a hit or miss.

Do you already have the VR equipment? Or is that required as well?

What kind of budget are you working with?

Where are you located / are we talking USD?

This is going to be what I would call your standard high-end gaming build right now. Any computer good for gaming will be perfect for office tasks, as well.

I could budget this list. My only issue is I have 0 knowledge in how to properly manage any software/system setup etc. after building.

It's pretty straight forward. You'll have a USB flash drive with Windows on it that you'll put in before your computer turns on. It'll boot to the Windows installation process and you'll be all set to go! Then, I recommend going to ninite.com to bulk install any programs you might need.
