It's not good.
The main VR headsets I hear about is the Oculus Quest 2, Valve Index, and HP Reverb.
It's to my understanding that the Valve Index controllers can detect individual fingers (which looks pretty cool), but the resolution of the screen is lower than the Quest 2, but I think the Index may have higher refresh rate?
HP Reverb has high resolution displays, not sure about how well it performs on the other aspects tho.
In terms of wireless play, I think the Quest 2 is the best of the bunch. But if you're going to be tethered to the computer anyway, that may not be much of a selling point for you.
But I think you can start comparing the specs for the three VR headsets I've mentioned and see what you want.
I believe the screens themselves are 4k, but you do get a considerable increase in VR video quality when playing 6/7/8k content as you only view a piece of the video at a time (the 6/7/8k take up the entire fisheye portion of the video, versus a tv that displays at 1:1 pixels)
I believe the original quest did not play back this higher res content
