Meta Quest 2 performance on Steam games.

Hello! Sorry for my english and probably a dumb question. I have almost none experience with VR and i'm planning on buying a Meta Quest 2 headset. I am not going to play built-in games(like the ones that you can play without a pc), but only connecting it to my computer and playing the games on it, such as the ones from Steam or Roblox. But i've seen some videos that show poor graphics in Meta Quest 2 games. As i undestood, those were built-in games. But will that happen with the games that i play from my PC? Sorry again for the dumbness, but as i understand: the games that built-in the headset and in the Quest store are being played on headset components(videocard, CPU, etc), and the ones you play if you connect the headset to PC - are using the PC's components. So the main question: if my pc is capable of running VR games at high graphics - it won't matter if the headset itself couldn't run it? Sorry again.

That's right. A powerful PC can handle all the hard work of rendering the game, leaving the headset with the easier job of displaying it. The in-headset graphics will not match those you see on your monitor, at least in terms of sharpness - the technology simply isn't there yet - but if you have a fast enough connection between the PC and the headset, the difference isn't too noticeable.
