Thanks man! It seems like an ever changing design but it keeps getting closer to what I want.

I thought about that but where would the PSU exhaust its air without changing much of whats there already?

So its more of a platform for the monitor to set on more than it is "mounting". Right now the design is for wood but It will depend on the thickness of the wood and how well i think screws/glue can hold it. I can always add support with some metal braces.
I missed something before, but this was addressed by someone else but the way your air flow is heading, your graphics card considering that you have placed a 'gtx 680' in your plans are worrying me. It's basically a wall, there's a reason why in normal cases the air flow goes from the right edge of the motherboard to the I/O panel on the left edge of the motherboard. Motherboards are also designed to take advatage of airflow this way, where conventionally a fan will blow over the southbridge heatsink or whatever heatsink is down there.;
In my opinion, you should have the airflow coming from right to left (when you're sitting down facing the front of the desk). This way your airflow will be less congested.
I know this has been addressed before, but I am giving another warning.
So, just to clarify..the current way that i have it:
Is like hitting a wall? But the way you suggest it:
Would work better? I'm not going to ignore what some have thought of as an issue but wouldn't the GPU's ABSOLUTELY act as a wall for air with the suggested airflow pattern?
Honestly, i'll go with two 670s i think. I just used the 680 for reference because i didn't see anything on the sketchup site that was closer. Same goes for the fans/motherboard. I just used something to fill the space.
