That doesn't mean have no lights in the room however: I tend to prefer in-ceiling lights, but they can be costly and are not always an option. If the room is very open and free of clutter,
a few (two) tower lights can look really nice against the walls. The following styles may give some inspiration: Line floor light , The Story floor light, Spiral floor light. I am not saying to go buy these lamps, but if you shop around your local stores you can find similar styles.
Well, I prefer to have some kind of warm light shining up behind my monitor, my ceiling lights don't provide that. I'm thinking about trying this out though.

Is there a way you could take our that wooden shelf in the cabinet on the left side of your desk and wedge your pc in there, or something?
Maybe there is a way to have the tower set up behind the monitor on another stand or an add-on to desk? I'm just throwin' ideas out there to get the idea ball rolling.
My tower is too long for that bottom shelf, it'd be sticking out quite a ways.

Okay, I went around, re-arranged everything and hooked up my speakers. Ideally I'd like to have the tower raised about 5 inches or so, and I don't have a headphone stand or the other things mentioned yet. I was toying with the idea of moving my other monitor over to the left and putting my PS3 on the shelf under it, but I'm out of slots on my extension cord. I'm getting a black Leopold tenkeyless in on Thursday, so that solves the out-of-place keyboard.
