Z6 or Z7 ?

I'm looking to upgrade from my old DX Nikon to Full Frame Mirrorless.

I'm trying to decide on Z6 or Z7. I would really like the Z7 as I do a lot of landscape and cityscapes as well routine walkabout and tourist type stuff.

Also, I like pixel peeping, cropping etc. I also like the fact that the Z7 in crop mode will give me more pixels than my old DX camera whereas the Z6 will give me less. Also, not intending to use video mode in any serious way

So, Z7 it is then . . . . HOWEVER..

I then started reading about negative aspects such as :-

1, If you're not a very experienced photographer your shots will be more likely to be out of focus, blurry, poor etc due to the skills demanded by Hi Res cameras. Less forgiving than lower res cameras.

2, Giant file sizes. I will probably shoot jpeg for every day stuff but will use Raw when doing Landscapes, cityscapes etc.

3, Will my Desktop PC be adequate? I upgraded a year ago and bought from a specialist on-line  builder. I discussed my intentions to upgrade my camera and was told the specs I went for would be perfectly adequate for a 45mp plus camera. Is he right? see specs below.

So, Are these downsides as bad as they say? Or is there a degree of exaggeration. Should I go for it, or accept that it may to to much camera for a hobbyist like me.

Be very interested to hear your thoughts, especially anyone who's also been down this path and their experiences.
