Budget:
~$4k

Expectations:
Quiet, relatively future proof, reliable

Usage:
Primarily VR (Rift S). Although would like to augment and potentially replace my consoles (Xbox, Playstation 4) That would be done on 65" LED TV. Also occasionally stream movies. My plan is not to have a monitor, just the panel. Wireless keyboard and touchpad for any interactions that need to be done with a keyboard/mouse. Gaming to be done with wireless remote (type TBD)

Special Needs:
Quiet. In the main living area. High animal load (multiple cats, dogs)Location would be on floor next to entertainment system, TV, so any suggestions on minimizing impact to system appreciated

Well, you spent north of $4000 so there's that.

I'd be interested in hearing what that CPU, which you may not see until April-ish will do for gaming on a TV. (My short answer: Nothing.)

All I got.

Thanks. Is there another CPU you would recommend? And is it a fools errand to consider using the TV as a monitor?

A lot of people use hi-def bigscreens for gaming. It's plenty immersive, I imagine, but it's a TV, so you're never going to have the response and dedicated use of a computer monitor. You can always adapt in a different direction at another time.

The 5800X is more than enough for you, But I can't keep track of what's currently in stock. Make them commit before you order it. Their supply is very inconsistent from AMD.
