Just an extremely cheap one, but still far more useful than the ASUS one. Clamps on my desk and takes up just 8cm2 instead of half of my desk. Think i paid 500kr for it.

I had to have that desk custom made. It needed to go next to my old one, and be a strict width or the living room door wouldn't open. So it's 100cm wide and 100cm deep lol. Cost my ex a fortune.

If anything I'll be glad of the extra space by the side. The headset won't get in the way anywhere near as much.

My old days of carpentry ended when I moved into a flat. Chopping up MDF inside is a sure fire recipe to be finding dust for about ten years after.

yuck! MDF is terrible. Make a proper desk out of oak. Not only does it look far better, but it smells beautiful.

Only time I will use MDF is for speaker enclosures. Otherwise I steer clear of that stuff

Oak prices in the UK are insane tbh. Plus you need the tools to cut it, as it laughs at jigsaws etc.

This desk has done well. It's very solid and hey, I can always wrap the wood if I ever get bored of it.

Yeah Oak is bad priced here too. But I just love it. I took up carpentry as a minor hobby. Love working with the stuff.

My other furniture is all oak. Mostly because it rarely looks dated and lasts forever pretty much.

My old desk was oak (but enormous) and almost impossible to move too lol.

Lucky, A lot of Radeon 7's came out faulty which is 1 of the reasons they were discontinued as they were originally left over Instinct compute cards.

Got 2 x Corsair 120mm HDRGB fans for the top of my case just to add some red colour.
