Luckily though this build is good for vr and GREAT for my daily work haha 24 gb of ram is more than enough for content writing, editing, listening to youtube and editing videos.

just a big window and lots of light and my laptop. I need air and space and things to look pretty haha.

Limarc nice! i sort of tried to "future proof" my rig and...went a little overboard 😅 but hey, i won't have to get another computer for at least 5 years.

Linh fair enough! i think programmers are naturally predisposed to dark conditions 😂
