With those blue cables, are they completely custom cables made for your PSU, or the originals in blue sleeving? It looks very nice!

Nothing overly fancy, but I'll get the obligatory post out the way;

The Home Office/Gaming Desk Setup;

Image

Guitar Hero 5 guitar because **** yeah Guitar Hero. Trusty el-cheapo Logitech Playstation-clone controller for the platformers and racers, oldschool Top Gun Thrustmaster joystick for the flying (although mouse + keyboard is used most of the time, the joystick is more for the simulators). Logitech G110 keyboard (bought it for the flashy lights and not much else), Logitech G35 headset (recommended), and of course the Aperture Science Turrets to keep everything safe... Case is just a cheapy Antec Gaming 300.

PC specs aren't amazing;

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition @ 3.6
Golden Empire 12GB DDR3 @ 1600
GIGABYTE GA-880GM-USB3
Corsair HX750W Modular PSU
EVGA e-GeForce GTX 560 Ti
Silicon Power Velox V60 120GB SSD SATA3 550/510 (OS)
2x Western Digital 1TB Black RAID-0 (Games)

Screens;
BenQ G2420HD 24" 16:9 x2
LG Flatron W2242T 22" 16:10

Sound;
Logitech X-530 (the Z5500's have been ninja'd for the home theatre. They sound great considering they aren't built for super-serious home theatre.)

And that's really it.

you have NO idea how much this irritates me. I'm quite OCD about where everything goes, and if something is cluttered or obscured it gives me the heebee jeebees.

I've just turned the speakers on their side... not sure i like it like that though atm :P

Mine are behind the monitors as well and in my dark computer room/dungeon(as the better half calls it) i cant see them Win Win

Sound comes thru clear under the monitors, was the best i could come up with,unless anyone know a speaker kit that has 3 speakers that can clip onto the top of the screens.
That would be the best, or i just bust out the hammer drill and start making shelves, sounds like too much work already :lol:

Are those 27inch ASUS? they look exactly like mine

With reguards to 3monitor issues with speakers.. some of you seem to be having..
Your better off lifting the monitors up.. most desks without a monitor shelf seem to place your monitors 10-20cm to low anyhow..
A few GFX card boxes (laying flat) and a plank of timber (or 3 floorboards) cut to length make a good shelf for monitors, I use a set of shelves turned sideways so I can sit things on top.
(theres a pic floating arround here somewhere)

If you dont want to lift your monitors up...
Get yourselves some of the tubes you get scotch bottles in..
Glenfiddich works well and is nice to drink as well.
Image
Fill them with sand or rice. I prefer rice as it makes less mess but brickies sand weighs more.
Mount speakers to top of tubes, I punch holes in the metal lids, run cable tie through then glue the lids on.
You may need a door wedge or two to cut down if your speakers do not have an adjustable tilt on their feet.
Now your speakers should sit poking just above the top of a standard 24" lcd.
If you have falling over issues (ie your clumbsy and smash the **** out of your desk) try seating the tubes in large milo tins.
