I dont really like orange, and that's kinda only my headphones. I'd go for the cables but they're too expensive imo.

You're going to have a hard time making it more aesthetic if you don't want to spend any money.

1. get the Pc off the floor ffs

 

2. try some RGB, rgb fans provide some more functionality but are a little more pricey than just a regular old Rgb strip which is still a good way to make your pc look better

^^^ Not really much you can do without spending money. More aesthetic stuff usually costs more than things that are purely functional, if you want it to look better you pay more.

I'd focus more on that desk and your area, rather than the PC itself.

Actually a good idea. Any recommendations?

I'd get a larger desk, for one.  I prefer to spread out a bit.

 

Desktop speakers?  Not sure if you use headphones as preference or due to roommates, thin walls, etc.

 

Some art behind and above the monitor?  It looks a little barren and sterile, like a hospital for my taste.

 

Then again, that may be what you're going for.

Also, that doesn't look like an UltraWide monitor.

 

Must be the way the pic was taken, cuz I can't believe it's not an UW.
