just built a new PC, but my mom is making me put it in the basement. It's unavoidably dusty down there. What do?

She's making you, eh? Sounds like a cover story for you being a basement dweller in your mom's house. Does she at least still fix your hot pockets for you?

my entire house is dusty, honestly. If I leave it in the living room, where my old computer was, dust is still going to accumulate fairly fast

Dust it out every two weeks or so?

My house is the same way, I have to dust off my keyboard and everything on my desk every single day to keep it looking nice, and I take a can of air to my computer every week. The case even has dust filters on it but it still gets loaded.

Just clean the house. Vacuum if you have carpets. Wipe down every surface. Shave your pets. Clean your A/C vents and replace filter. Open up a window and let the house air out a day.
