Yeah, you don't see the web of wires behind the monitor. It is scary.
Well, wifey wants me to finish the basement and relocate my rear end there, hence I will be getting new furniture, wiring setup, etc. So, in a few difficult months, if I do not lose my job, I will be posting new setup with 3 computers (Vista, Linux and OpenBSD). If only I can find dirt cheap 19-20 inch LCD monitor to quit switching between sources...eh...

Ergonomically horrible too. Not even looking at the TV area...

You need a bigger side table or a real desk. I am mostly concerned about the mouse, but ideally you should be able to fit your legs under whatever holds the keyboard and rest your forearm on whatever holds the mouse.

Do you kneel at the systems??

I'm more concerned about your games/movies sitting in the sun.... They don't like that much.

^ haha sweet! Great minds think alike!

I've done a couple of revisions since then. Got the inside of the case painted black and couple of holes for cable management and such.

I've also done a quick/easy mod tonight you might be interested in if you love the grills and have that eyesore of an optical drive sticking out.

Keep an eye open for it, I'm posting it later!
