[my budget is only up to 2841 dollars as i also need to buy a new mouse and keyboard which cost 169]

[i need to be able to play vr through oculus link so usb c is 100% needed, it also should be able to run triple a titles up to 100 fps on high settings. ]

[i am a very very dedicated gamer spending most of my day on my pc so it needs to be reliable and not overheat. i will most likely spend 10 percent of my time using blender, 35% of the time playing flatscreen games and then 55% off the time playing vr]

Special Needs:
[i need it to fit on my 40 inch desk with the 24 inch moniter also on it i can try to move the moniter back but preferably it will all fit in a 37 inch space]

You're off to a pretty good start. Very strong CPU/GPU combo for high-end gaming at 1080p and VR. I personally like the Lynx, for it brings a little bling in a budget case.

Must have: A 500GB Firecuda for Storage set 1. It is NVMe vs the DS SATA SSD. That one is NOT "Performance". The Firecuda is up to 9 times faster read speeds and 5 times faster write speeds. NVMe works off the PCIe bus like a video card, not the much slower SATA. That change will vastly improve the speed of everything you do. Well worth it.

Don't have to, but a good idea: Get the dual fan CPU cooler. The single fan on that proc will do a decent job, but it's always best to cool that critical part as best you are able. It may extend the life of your proc.

Those two changes bring you in at $2701, still under budget. It's convenient to buy a monitor here, and that's a pretty good one. Just be advised it's available cheaper online. You might want to shop around.
