Trying to find RGB lighting that doesn't break the bank

Can anyone suggest RGB lighting that isn't all that expensive that's compatible with Asus Aura lighting?

Currently my case is only illuminated by the LEDs on the right side of my motherboard and the LEDs on my ROG 1080.
I'm trying bring more color to my case and if possible my desk as well (behind or on the back of my monitors).

I bought this RGB kit made by Airgoo, it includes 2 - 30 cm magnetic led strips and works great with Asus Aura on my Asus ROG Strix B450-F Gaming MB.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07C9...apainc-20&th=1
(You need to choose the magnetic version after you click on the link)
The picture I attached is with both of the strips connected together (male to female) using just one of the 4 pin RGB headers on my MB. I have them running all the way around the left side of my case. The picture shows them set on static mode (blue). But just FYI I did test them with every mode available in Asus Aura and they worked perfectly in every mode.

A roll of this. Suggested these as they are cheaper. I have the 300 pixel roll as I like the higher density.

One of these

And a package of these

Wire it to the 5V coming out of your PSU and plug it in to the BT controller. Should be enough LEDs to do your case, desk, and back of monitor. That controller won't drive the entire 16ft power wise, but you just run 5V to the power in on the strip directly and data and ground from the controller.

What's in your hardware wallet?

there's the official asus rog led strips, comes in 30cm and 60cm
it is a bit pricey but it for sure works with asus aura and you just plug into your mobo, 5v 4pin addressable led header
check your manual to see if your mobo supports this but i think it should (you might have 2 spots for this, bottom and top of the mobo)
no need to plug into your psu and the backside of the strip is magnetic
