do you think this will go even lower?
You may condemn this but if i can make my computer look nicer for no extra cost what reason is there not to?
Because it decreases resale value. Let's say you're looking to buy a motherboard on ebay. some wankers spray painted it black vs a stock one, which one would you buy?
Console peasant wanting to build my first gaming pc soon. I'm thinking by the end of the year.
Mainly for gaming, a bit of design in Blender. My desires are:
-1080p, 60 fps minimum, if I can get better that'd be cool. On ultra would be better.
-future proof so I can upgrade if I so choose
-vr capable (not immediately necessary)
My knowledge of pc gaming and building is essentially nonexistent, although I've done a little research. I played around on pcpartpicker and came up with a build to start, albeit with no real reason for choosing the parts I chose other than "that looks good" or "it has good reviews".

It's bit more than I want to spend, although I don't really have a budget planned. Anything I should know about building one? Any issues with my parts, or are their better for cheaper parts? Any advice or knowledge you want to throw my way would be appreciated. Thanks!
Personally, I would get 16 gigs of ram and a b450 board rather than x470 and 8 gigs. X470 boards have better quality but the price premium is much better spent on more ram - 16gb is way more future proof than 8gb.
Otherwise, seems pretty good. Do you display to connect to your pc?
edit: 'do you display' should be 'do you have a display'
Everyone seems to be suggesting that so I'll definitely do that.
I don't currently have a decent monitor. A 55" in 4k tv (TCL P605) and a small 720p tv. I figure I can use the tv (I can deal with a bit blurry) until I get a decent monitor. Anything you'd reccomend?
idk about the US but in the UK the AOC g2260vwq6 is a solid 1080p monitor for the price.
