    Here is a vid of my setup (desk, speakers, monitors, etc)



    Just wondering what I can improve apart from the obvious (clean up cables under desk).

    I have considered putting the smaller monitor on the wall. I don't want to put the bigger monitor on the wall as it will be too far away from my face.

    What can I do to improve?

    Thanks for watching my video.

    The dude has a pair of KEF X300As... he doesn't need no surround sound.

    "Doesn't need no" is a double negative mate. ;)
    So yeah, i agree. Get some surround sound. I like having surround sound while gaming. Makes it more immersive.

    I would change those lamps. They look like something my grandmother threw out some years ago :D
    Other then that. Great desk setup. Better than mine.

    Ok Mr. Grammar Nazi.
    No he should not.
    A pair of good speakers is better than some shitty surround sound crap.

    Who said anything about shitty surround?
    I feel like you are taking my comment personal. Didn't mean to offend. I just wanted to tease you a little for using a classic ghetto line.

    Then name a system you would recommend to him.

    You're not going to get a surround sound system that will sound as well as his x300a unless you drop a few grand on it.
    No not really.
    No offence taken.
    Cool story bro.

    you are seriously overusing the quotations. And please, try to act a little adult. Ok.

    You can easily get fantastic surround sound for less then 2 grand. For example, the Logitech Z906 is a great great gaming surround sound setup. And It's just about 470-80 usd.
    Not saying that's the setup he should go for. But that's an example. I am buying those this year. If he is interested in surround sound, I can find something for him. It was simply a suggestion to go for a surround setup. He was asking for suggestions after all.

    My speakers are worth $1000. Not changing them out. Mainly interested in visual improvements like maybe cable management nicer lamps and art etc

    Also not into changing pc case either. I don't want to change any components I want to make the whole setup look better visually if that makes any sense

    Also please stop the petty fighting guys.

    Are you a big boy now? Going to put on your big boy pants?

    You can get decent surround sound for less than 2 grand. Perhaps re read what I wrote. You're not going to get better audio out of a surround sound system when compared to his kefs for less than a few grand.

    I'm not sure if you've realized what his kef x300a can do and the audio quality it produces. Nothing from logitech is going to touch what he has right now.
    He's being over sensitive.

    Have you considered getting monitor mounts (if your panels are VESA capable)? They free up a lot of desk space beneath the panel where the monitor stand use to be.

    I've thought about it but I don't think I'll do it. If anything I would get something to raise the little monitor on the left up to a higher viewing level as I have to look down on it right now.
    My most urgent concern is how do I fix the cable mess. Any advice on that would be appreciated.

    I don't see why you shouldn't have a monitor mount. It makes your desk look even cleaner. You can get the arms that are gas operated so they don't need to play around with screws to move it around.
    Are you talking about the cables below and behind the table?

    You can get a bunch of these tubings and chuck a bunch of cables in there.

    OK, that's a good first step. But I have seen other peoples desks on YouTube where they have completely hidden the wires. Sadly, none of these videos go into detail about how to do that properly. The only thing I can think of, is some kind of system that runs along the bottom of the desktop along the back sort of like a bunch of hooks. And then, what do I do with the power bar that everything plugs into? Mounted to the bottom of the top of the desk? I really have no idea. I want to plan this out properly before I start screwing around.

    Doing what you're trying to do isn't easy and without being their in person to take a look at your situation, its hard to give you some direction. You're going to have to DIY a few things to make it work.
