    Best out there is the Valve Index.....it is pricey AF at a staggering AU$3000...but if money is no issue then it is definitely the way to go but if you're not blessed with the Benjamins then the Oculus Quest 2 FTW

    Ryzen 5 5600X
    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Pro Wi-fi
    Corsair Hydro H100x
    32GB DDR4 @ 3200MHz
    WD 512GB M.2 PCI-E 4 NVMe
    WD 1TB M.2 PCI-E 4 NVMe
    Gigabyte Aorus RTX 3070 Ti Master
    Corsair 4000D Airflow
    Corsair RMx 850W

    My only advice is , try before you buy.
    just to make sure YOU (your son) can get a clear focused image , it fits your head/nose and matches your eyes (ie you dont see doubled images or cant focus on the display ).
