Looking to build a pc for illustrations and small level animation projects.

Although, from an asthetic pov, I don't like the tower at all. Any suggestions here are very very welcome. Although I do have an engraving pen if this bland box truly is the best solution.

PC-Cases really come down to personal taste, and there are a lot of choices. As you have a standard ATX Motherboard in the build list, you have a lot of options to chose from. Take a look at the NZXT H510 Elite (https://amzn.to/3kYGzFO) which might be more up your alley, but of course there are tons of others.

The build will perform nicely for your workloads, though you might want to swap the AMD GPU for an Nvidia GPU, as in 3d animation and adobe cc apps, nvidia is usually more widely supported.
