Yea i already know that its a low psu. Could that be a performance issue?
Not really a performance issue, more of a... say goodbye to most, if not all of your components if the PSU dies. The PSU is the heart of your system, connected to everything. NEVER cheap out on PSU.

PSU warranty covers the PSU itself but NOT the components that it takes down with it.

what Vr games will i be able to play. And should i go for ryzen or intel and what cpu?
With that pairing you shouldn't really have any issue running most VR games on higher settings. I think the only "difficult" games to run on VR are those that can be modded such as Skyrim but when running 30+ graphic heavy mods a performance hit is to be expected.

Which VR headset are you getting?

Price to performance AMD is probably the better choice now but the Intel 10th gen hyperthreaded i5's are quite nice as well. It really comes down to your budget.
