Bowtruckle hanging around

Tried to do an Asus Aura Build with as much (a)RGB as possible and affordable. The Graphics Card was taken from my old PC, so no Asus Aura, planning to upgrade sometime. Did an inverted Build, because of the position of the PC, and because it was cool.
The upgrade would be an RTX 2070/2080 as Asus Strix, Aorus 8G or Inno3D iChill X3 Jekyll. Otherwise might be an equal Navi GPU.
Also thinking of putting something like an X-Wing statue at the bottom and remove one panel, to better manage the 8-pin cable.
Tell me, what you think of my ideas, or which one you've got in the comments.

Any tips welcome, it's my very first build. Cable combs are on the way, more photos coming when they arrived.
It's an inverted build, and I would like to mount my GPU vertical, anybody knows, if this is possible? Would like to use the CableMod mount.
