Can you think of anything that'll make day to day usage of your PC easier?

I recently bought 200 velcro ties so I could do better cable management.

If you're thinking of upgrading your desk, make sure you get one that can handle the weight of all your gear. I've seen people's desks snap if too much weight is put in the middle.

If you're willing to save, getting a sit/stand desk is a must for long term PC gaming.

nice keyboard or mouse?

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

If your GPU can handle it, there are some decent $100 IPS 1080p monitors. You can never have enough screen real-estate imo

It'll sound silly, but a mouse bungie to keep your mouse cable from dragging helped me a lot.

Do you have any available fan slots in your case? Cooler components will last long/allow for more overclocking

I dont see much use for a mouse bungee, my setup is fine without it. I'd rather have something that is more useful
