A little bored with my computer, what should I do?

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.

 

 

I kinda paid a lot for this desk since its a moving one and I just bought it. I do prefer headphones but nornally use echo dots as speakers but might look into bookshelf speakers. Art is a good idea, it is very bland. I just moved into this room though so still looking for some stuff.

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.

It's not an ultrawide. It's actually kinda small. Only 24 inches. It is curved though

something like this would solve it and create some nice airflow. couldn't find one on their website for your case tho... maybe a couple ledstrips?

Organize your cables, you can get cheap cable ties on Aliexpress (definitely available at Amazon too). You can cut them to desired length.

 

Others also suggested getting the PC off the floor, that is also a good idea - since your desk has variable height, I would look for a console that mounts from the bottom of the desk - that way the PC will move with the desk and you can manage your cables more easily. Something like this:

While being on Aliexpress (or Amazon) you can try to look for cheap LED strips to put behind your desk (or back of the monitor) to illuminate your wall - it won't sync with anything, but it's cheap and looks really good.

 

Your desk and area around it looks kind of plain, maybe you could look for some art to put on the wall (or some knick-knacks for the table), characters from your favorite games, or shows - something like that - you know, something that you would enjoy looking at...

Forgot to add an example

It all depends on what you think looks nice. Personally I really like the looks of Cryorig coolers, so I got a C1 (will probably not fit with your RAM sticks.
But you could also get something more functional like a Noctua NT-U12S cooler or Arctic Freezer 33,
Or something funky like a Dark Rock TF (if it fits),
Or RGB like an AMD Wraith Prism

I'd say put something on the walls because, to me, they seem very desolate with that color.

 

You could get some small things on your desk or, get an RGB strip and slap it behind it to give the whole setup a little extra flare.

If we are strictly talking about the PC itself then, I don't think there's much you can do since it's on the ground.

 

For me, the best thing was getting a second monitor and putting some clutter on the desk. (Monitor was free from a local office's dumpster :P)
