Ok so I am going to finish my build once life settles some. My question is what would be a good way to keep my pc off my carpet so as to minimize static and other issues?

I've had my towers on the floor for ages. All floors were carpeted.

Static is a non-issue with a case that's grounded. In fact, a quick and dirty method to discharge your static before handling a computer is to touch the case while it's grounded. The only problem with leaving it on the carpet is dust/debris buildup is easier and if there's a bottom mount fan, it'll be starved for air unless the case is lifted off an inch or so. But if you want it off the floor, the only other choice is your desk.

I attached a wood shelf to my metal desk legs six inches off the ground using double-row support standards from HD. Total cost was under $20.
Off the desk AND off the floor.
