    I think this is the one you want for media consumption.

    I don’t think onboard video is strong enough to power the traditional oculus rift and HTC vive

    Try them all and pick the one you like best. Most are free to use.

    You could maaaaaaybe use one of the Ryzens with integrated GPU to do really basic VR, but for anything resembling a good experience, you'll want a real graphics card.

    I like the Windows Cliff House movie room for playing movies, but BigScreen is pretty nice, too.

    For just video, no you don't need a video card. I ran wmr on my 2700u equipped laptop.
