    it's a chewbacca back-pack wearing an "Awful-Awful" hat. I have had that hat for about 40+ years. If you don't know what an Awful-Awful is...you are not from Rhode Island - and likely better of for it.

    Heres My setup, only recently got my 2nd Dell 2007fpb, since this monitors are painfully hard to find here in Portugal. Love this setup but its tricky to make it work due to driver restrictions.

    I like the PLP. What stand are you using with the 3?

    I'm using 2 desk arms for the dells, no brand, bought them on amazon, and a very slim lcd wall mount I had lying around for the Crossover. =) PLP is awesome very tricky to setup the games but its worth the hassle.

    Well, I'm not much of a Show-Off, but if the front page tells me to, I guess I should post :p

    The Dell 30" 2560x1600 U3011 gave way to a Samsung 48" 4k screen.

    Previous setup (Picture probably from late 2010 / early 2011 or so, can't remember)

    ^-- looks like a 30" on each side would fit better ;)

    My trigonometry and algebra is a little rusty, but according to my calculations it would be a perfect fit for a 27" 16:9 screen in portrait.

    Of course, it would be difficult to find a 2160*1215 resolution 27" monitor to make the pixel density match :p

    Either way it is moot. I'm using what I've got. I originally matched them to the 30" because I could. The pixel density and sizing just kind of worked out. I wanted to run PLP games, which is why I was interested in the equal height and pixel density, but that never really worked out, apart from a handful of older DX9 games that would run in SoftTH.

    With the 48" 4k screen, I no longer have a need (or desire) for multi-monitor gaming :p I can do in one screen what I otherwise would accomplish in three :p

    Well the problem is from what I see you are using sli, to run PLP you need to run it in windowed mode for most games, coupled with Borderless Gaming Program, and that's the catch sli and crossfire don't work in windowed mode, currently I'm running pretty much all my games at 4960x1600 out of a R9 290 this way, only had to use Softth on Guild Wars 2, everything else is running great, you do have to fiddle around tho. And I can run pretty much everything @ 60 fps, off course I need to tone down some stuff, mainly shadows and AA does the trick.

    If you want wing monitors you'd be better off putting 2x 24" 1080p monitors vertically stacked on each side - a 4K monitor is basically 4x 24" 1080p monitors together in a grid.

    Someone on [H] already tried it on my suggestion:

    http://hardforum.com/showpost.php?p=1041566416&postcount=2175

    Still can't do Eyefinity/nVSurround but as you pointed out when you have a 48" monitor you don't care :D

    I have that same mouse pad! I personally put a wrist rest in the "cutout", I dig your ingenuity with putting it on it side to make it fit.

    It's definitely a curved 2015 Samsung. Can't tell if it's the JU6700, JU7500 or JS9000 though.

    It has the same stand as my JS9000, but the bezel looks different. Might just be the lighting. I'm going to go ahead and guess 48" compared to that keyboard.

    Well there we go :p

    Eww. No food ever gets anywhere near my desk. Shit is nasty. You inevitably get grease on your keyboard, mouse etc.

    I eat elsewhere, and wash my hands after eating before I ever touch my computer.

    I know this isn't exactly the right place for this, but I guess it kind of made sense in my head. I have been looking for a new desk for a while now. I had my heart set on the IKEA Galant. To have a similar setup to one of the earlier posts. Well that desk is infinitely hard to find and I don't like the rounded corners of the IKEA Bekant. So in my exploring of the internet I found this desk... It is like 1600$, I have not seen any pictures of this thing beyond just the sketch.

    http://www.populasfurniture.com/product/accella-adjustable-wrap-corner-desk/

    Does anyone know if this thing is worth the price? It does everything I want... Symmetrical corner desk, height adjustable, and that digital storm color... is sexy! Let me know what you guys think!

    Wow, not quite a 10K desk, but... That's a lot of money for a desk.

    edit:

    And I just did some research and found out how expensive desks can be :eek:

    I figured a cheap-ass small one would be in the $60-$99 range, and a bigger decent one like mine would be about $200. Turns out they cost a lot more :eek:

    I'm lucky I "inherited" my parents (they're not dead) old 80's-era Swedish desk from Skandia Kontorsmöbler. Probably almost 30 years old, still going strong.

    You'll get a lot more feedback if you move this to the IKEA Desk thread in the Case Mod section.

    As for that desk, it looks great, but I'd never spend $1600 on any desk. I've had a Galant since 2007. Sux that it was discontinued.

    I want to thank you, Killahurtz--not that she has yet, but if my wife ever starts to feel like there is too much computer stuff around the house, I'm going to show her your pictures.
