    Hey guys,
    This is a wierd question to ask but I havent really found a desk I could use for my second computer (which will be made in March). So I got 2 questions.

    1. I need a desk that is 35" W and all I can find are ones that are 40-47" which are too big. Also at a reasonable price. I dont need to waste $200 on a desk.

    2. I am going dual core (no SLI). Figured what would be a nice setup for that. I got my beautiful NXZT Nemesis case (I kno a lotta people dont like the look, but I do hahaha) with that crap Orion PSU that I need to get rid of. So I am looking for suggestings on what to get for a PSU, RAM, Motherboard, GPU, PSU cooler and I was thinking maybe a case cooler like for a PCI slot since I got 3 120mm fans already in the case.

    Thanks:toast:

    I would suggest the Revoltec ChromusII RNPS450 as a good PSU.It works with 195V to 230V AC and it is silent.Shall it be the new AM2 dualcore processor or a 939?

    I wanted to do the AM2 chipset, but with it being pushed back till June prob. not. The reason for that is that most of the system will be a b-day gift so if the rumors are true it will be a 939.

    i kinda decided any desk big enough to get all my junk on it took up far too much room and made this thing up.. the original idea was a metal pole going from floor to ceiling with lots of swinging shelves on it.. couldnt find the right bits thow and ended up with this..

    i did have a big 19" crt when i first set it up.. it did make the swinging arm bracket groan a bit thow..

    just an alternative idea to desks.. didnt cost that much to make..

    yes i recon something like that would be a marketable product done properly..

    the shelves are just mdf fibre board spray painted grey.. the thing that supports it all is a piece of 4 x 2 timber covered in white sticky backed plastic.. fablon to be exact.. it looks like metal but it isnt.. he he

    the tubes at the rear are just for show they are in fact white plastic plumbing pipes..

    the swinging brackets and shelves are from Ikea.. intended for a large metal framed normal computer desk.. u buy them seperately..

    i spend too much time sat at a computer not to do it in comfort.. he he he

    each shelf is screwed to the wall.. they are attached to the piece of 4 x 2 underneath where it passes thru them with a small angle bracket..

    ohh one important part.. the shelves have a semi circle cutout out at the center rear so as to be able to pass all the cables up and thru..

    and the small swing out mouse table is a wall mount speaker bracket with another piece of mdf cut to size..
