I decided to bite the bullet and put together an actual work and game station. The main reason being I want to start using a standing desk since it it is much healthier.

Today I have ordered 2 27" LED IPS Monitors which will become my main screens. I have 2 older 21" monitors which will be my secondary screens.

They will all be held together by this contraption also ordered today:

When they arrive I will have built some type of table desk. I will post some pictures.

After the desk is setup I will look into upgrading the computer. I am still using the Intel 2500k from 2-3 years ago but it is still plenty good compared to the incremental updates Intel has put out over the last 2 years. The thing needing updating the most will be the graphics card, a trusty GTX460. March is supposed to be the best time of year for graphics cards deals. The plan is to buy a GTX 760 or 770 and use the GTX 460 for the secondary monitors.

When all is said and done I should be a lot more productive and/or unproductive depending on how you look at it.

awesome man

the 770 is one of the best cards for the price that Nvidia has ever made. Highly recommend it for your gaming/physx
760 is of course great, but spend the extra.. especially for multi monitor displays
