Lighting: depends on your window situation. If too dark, a $30 ring light can be a game changer Desk: desk that can be converted to standing desks can be worth it if you actually use it but put you in higher price bracket Get a laptop stand, good keyboard, mouse and a usb c hub/dongle, so you just need to plug a single cable into your laptop. Chair: spend the big bucks here, absolute game changer if you have a good one. Sound: I like to invest in proper audio equipment. Getting compliments of my great audio since I invested in a desk microphone. Monitor: figure out what the right size is for you and consider the resolution. Once it gets over 27” the classic 1080p might bot be enough. Spend the 30 dollars on a monitor arm you can mount to your desk. Being able to adjust your monitor freely is great.

+1 for vertical laptop stand, freed up so much surface area on my desk and looks great

Pretty wide question. For me no brainer is a good office chair, external monitor (the bigger the better), nice mouse and keyboard. Ergo stand etc are not necessary imho.
