    Ikea Butcher Block, FTW! I just replaced my Galant desk with it. I used a pair of heavy duty steel sawhorses instead of standard legs.

    I'm picking up another butcher block (Ikea) and pair of sawhorses (Home Depot), this coming weekend, to make a big L desk out of the whole setup. Will post pics when it's all put together.

    Here is my work and home setup:

    Desk is custom made and also has the ability to go down to 24" and upto 4ft tall. Fully motorized

    Left side:
    2ea 21" Acer LCDs (P216H, P215H) (Mounted on crappy mount system, but it works)
    Dell D630 Laptop, Docking Station


    Right Side:
    2ea 24" Gateway Monitors (1080i) (Mounted on Workrite system)
    Custom built Xeon Quad Core (I7) connected to left 24" (Antec 300 case)
    Custom built I7-920 connected to Right 24" (Antec 900 case)


    Over the next week I am replacing the 24" with Asus 23" LED thin monitors, than the 24" will be replacing the 21"s for my work setup.
    The 21"s will be moved to the Den and the kids computer

    Total plan is to move the monitors to wall mounts to free up the desk space. Clean up all of the wiring and mount both PC's under the desk (to take full advantage of the motorization).

    Thanks

    23" Viewsonic surrounded by 24" Acers. Not great specs, but that is an original Jerker desk still in action.

    CoolHandsM3, amazing setup -- I'm inspired! Intrigued by the powder coating process for the metal frame of the monitor. I don't know much about it, but believe that the process involved baking the coating at very high temperatures. How exactly did you do that (can the entire monitor sustain those temps or did you have to somehow detach the metal frame?) Did you do it at a shop or DIY?

    Also, I think that particular model of monitor is UK only? Do you know the equivalent in US?

    Thanks for sharing!

    What are you using the 9" display for out of interest?

    I'm using it to display graphic card information while gaming. It makes it easier to glance down instead of turning my head.
    Still trying to fix my SLI issue so I haven't used it all that much.

    Was that directed towards me?
    If so, the 9" display is not a touch screen.
    That model is the DS-90UT

    The USB display maybe a solution for me once I go surround displays, since I'm going to need something for our clans/fleets chatrooms in MMOs. Voip is no problem, that displays on my G13, but I usually keep my ingame chat window on team (group) and my chat window outside of game on our clans channel (using pidgin).

    That is always a pain on a multiple gpu amd setup since running in a window / windowed+maximized drops down to a single gpu. If you can't pan your mouse outside of the game screen and across to the other monitor's while in a game, it severely limits the usefulness of having other monitors outside of being merely pre-loaded readouts. I'm not sure if modern nvidia multi gpu setups have any bugs in doing so.
    .
    On amd multi gpu setups - for voice apps its useful whether on keyboard lcd or other auxiliary monitors even if only to see the highlight of what nickname is talking. You can also pre-load images of maps or walk-throughs, specs or whatever on auxiliary lcds, where they would still prove useful for reading even if you can't mouse over to them.
    .
    When I first saw that lcd I thought it was a tablet, which would be its own device/OS and touchscreen. I believe there are a few android versions of popular voice chat apps now, though some might still be in beta. I always use a hotkey on my pc so that I can chat on the fly. My tablet has a keyboard dock but I wouldn't want to reach over every time I wanted to say something. Multiple logins would solve that perhaps, one on the pc (that you can't see because your game is full screen) and one on the tablet, utilizing the tablet as the readout but broadcasting your chat from the pc version of the app with hotkey.

    For me the USB was a good option although there are some bugs with NVidia control panel.
    I don't play multiplayer and I don't need to chat during games. I generally use it to monitor my system while playing. Still some bugs to work out.
