Computer desks?

I browse craiglist for my office furniture--picked up an ikea Galant corner desk with extensions from someone moving and could not take with. + installed a meter-wide keyboard tray via home depot parts and couldn't be better off.

paid $50 + scratch building materials vs. $250+ new from Ikea for the same configuration

hope that helps

I'm looking into an L shaped desk for the simple reason as I have my tv stand next to my current "desk" and want to make sure my monitor will be by the tv still.

I was looking at this: http://www.amazon.com/Walker-Edison-Soreno-3-Piece-Corner/dp/B001FB5LE8/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_S_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=9WK6OUU7N6XQ&coliid=I9QT2WAJW5I1K

but found what looks to the be the exact same one on wal-mart for about $120(counting shipping) less. I would in no way be able to fit my Antec 1200 in the slot they show the case sitting but I still like the idea of the extra room.

Some coffee table that I've been using since I was a baby.

Do you guys use keyboard trays on your desks?

I got my desk from Ikea. It doesn't have a keyboard tray, but it has a stand near the bottom for my PC

My bad lol. Copied but never pasted. I keep my pc on the bottom shelf so you won't have to worry about setting your tower on carpet or anything. I wanted to put it on the middle shelf but my case was a bit too wide, I don't have a standard tower though.


Decided on this desk :).

Btw, anyone reccoemnd anny USB port additions to add to the front of the computer chassis?
