Anyone think this computer table would be good for gaming?

Table? Gaming? What?
Look, this is easy. If it feels comfortable to game on, then it's fine. That's all there is to it.

Hm, it looks pretty good for a prebuilt. You may be able to OC it and get a couple more inches out of it, seems a bit short.

>_>
<_<

Am I funny yet

Edit: In all seriousness though, the second one looks much nicer. The first is an eyesore.

I wouldn't buy any tables just yet. There's a new generation just around the corner that's going to trounce anything you can get today.

I'd spring extra cash for a desk. They have extra features like multiple drawers and cable routing holes that power users need.

The second one looks like it has hyperthreading, but it's like twice the price so unless you plan on doing some video editing I'd say go with the first; for gaming it's all you need.

Screw the table. Invest cash in premium mousepads instead.

Okay, honest response time. No, I wouldn't use either of those for extended use. It's important to keep your wrists straight while using a computer. Unless you have a computer chair with arm rests that will fit nicely under those desks, you're going to speed up carpal tunnel.

Edit: If your chair doesn't have arm rests, then you should buy a desk that's deep enough so you can rest your elbows while keeping your wrists straight as you use the computer.

Pretty sure you could just build that with some scrap wood.
