I already changed the memory to 2 sticks of 8gb

I would get a Ryzen 5 2600 since you plan on buying a dedicated graphics card and probably won't use an igpu. It has 2 more cores/4 more threads and usually can be found cheaper than the 2400g. I'd also consider taking a close look at the AMD's RX 5700 navi graphics card. It is priced similarly to a gtx 2060, but outperforms it in many benchmarks. Performance would fall between a gtx 2060 and gtx 2070.

Originally when I was building my PC, I wasn't planning on doing much gaming, let alone VR so I got a R5 2400g. Had I known I'd later buy an Oculus, I would have gotten a R5 2600 for $10 more at the time.

Some people have said that the RX 5700 is having some problems right now is that correct?

only because the coolers on them suck. I'd suggest to wait a bit until the AIB's make cards with better coolers. Once the board partners come out with quieter, more efficient cooling, you can expect higher clocks and even better performance from the 5700s. Also driver revisions are only going to make those cards better. I'd wait on them

Sorry, I haven't heard about the cooling issues...Tom H is probably correct to wait or choose another card.
