I think mine is the 23,6" version as well :) but i really like it. I used to have 2 x 22" Displays, but one seems enough.

Wish I had enough effort to cable tidy and organise like that! Luckily with my desk cables can tuck behind it without being seen. Cool workstation though!

Indeed. It's like 400 zip ties altogether. =) But with open glass desks like this it's a must.

Hi, I just finished my new computer desk and thought you might be interested. I have been lurking on the boards for a while but decided to register to show off my new toy.

wow you designed that?

how much did it cost in total? if you built that yourself you could probably become a very wealthy man by making and selling them.

It is hard to say what it cost me, I got the steel for free and the chair for free from work as they were throwing them out but I had to buy a lot of tools to finish the job and paint, consumables etc so I would estimate about $1500 but almost none of it is on the actual desk.

I really don't think there would be a market for something like this, it was just something to make while I taught myself to weld (I work in IT). The chair is very heavy and although I have a design in my head for a more refined version that is also made of wood, I won't have the time to make it for a while as I have other projects that need tending to.

I have a playlist of videos I made during the build, you can see how it started out as a really terrible idea and evolved to something better. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLC4BF16ECBAF8F4F6

Cheers.

Sorry for not providing the full workstation, but I am organizing it after building my beast.

My beast is finally built and tweaked the way I like it.

Specs:

- Core i5 2500K 3.3GHz (Automatic Overclocked to 4.5GHz)

- 8GB Patriot Sector 5 1600MHz RAM

- MSI ATI Radeon HD6950 2GB DDR5 Twin Frozr III

- ASUS P8P67 LE Rev 3.0

- Corsair TX 650W Gold Power Rating

- CoolerMaster HAF+

The build gives an awesome experience;

- Starcraft 2 - 120FPS

- Battlefield 3 - 68FPS

- Star Wars: The Old Republic - 98FPS

- Diablo 3: IS GOING TO BE AWESOMEE!!!!!!

For those interested in building this, these are all TigerDirect.ca components at $960 + tax.

@Titoist - I can't understand people spending so much on components and still using the inefficient and noisy stock cooler.

This stock cooler is very impressive actually. It doesn't make noise. System is very quiet and the only noise is the 200mm fan at the top. This cooler was able to run Battlefield 3 at 4.3Ghz at 41C degrees. My buddy has the same i5 2500k with liquid cooling and he is getting about 40C on his for BF3 at 4.3Ghz.
