Building Custom Gaming Desk

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This time it is Legit!!! I am Actually, infact, without a doubt building a custom computer desk. smile.gif

So, My computer desk needs:

Corner Desk Design.
5:1 surround sound incl sub
Full tower Nvidia Edition CoolerMaster HAF X tower on rollout tray for modding
Trifinity compatible
Custom hutches for storage of papers, games, dvds, headphones, lights, etc.

Current design sketch looks like this:

material unknown.

I like the sound of an LED lit Black and Green styled desk with Acrylic in lots of places....

Any ideas you guys have, shoot! and CD, far less off topic hilariousness then the thread from years ago, that was deemed the 'official hijack thread'

You might want to clarify EyeFinity or Nvidia Surround (I presume Surround since green/black and Nvidia case) tongue.gif

The sketch looks cool thumb.gif I'm not sure I'd recommend acrylic unless you have lots of experience working with it or lots of money to throw at it tongue.gif

Also, 5.1 will require speakers mounted somewhere behind you on the wall or ceiling and wires ran appropriately as a reminder smile.gif

Should get a bunch of these: http://www.amazon.com/Changing-Flexible-Controller-Ledwholesalers-2034rgb/dp/B0040FJ27S/ref=pd_cp_hi_0

Should also get a stand/mount for the Nvidia Surround http://shop.easymountlcd.com/Deluxe-Triple-Monitor-Stand-Desktop-Clamp-up-to-28-002-0019-002-0019.htm or http://shop.easymountlcd.com/Deluxe-Triple-Monitor-Stand-Free-Standing-up-to-28-002-0020-002-0020.htm

Subbed. I look forward to watching this unfold. Someday I want to build a gaming/workstation desk also

Are those numbers in centimeters?
post #5 of 5
I'd lose the legs on either side of the center of the desk and replace the support with a piece of steel square tubing or two running at a 45 degree angle under the front edge of the desk. I'm 6'5, so my long legs I always run into stuff. Take a look at the IKEA catalog or go to their showroom and see how some of their stuff is put together for inspiration.

Also, for the rear channel speakers on my 5.1 setup, I have them hanging under the overhead cabinet on my right, and under the printer shelf on my left. Positionally, they're straight out from my ears at 90 degrees off center. They work really well and I don't see the need to make them go further back, which would require placing them on stands that I would trip over.
