I swear to you all, I would make it work!
Well, since people are posting pictures of their desks,
Also, I've recently added some gear to my setup
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz 3.30 GHz
Memory: 16 GB Kingston HyperX DDR3
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 7950
Hard Drive: Intel® SSD 520 Series 120GB, + 550gb shared amongst two other, old drives.
Case: Antec Performance One P180
Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 225BW + temporarily an old 17" LG L1715S
Mouse: Logitech G5
Keyboard: Logitech G15
OS: Windows W7 64
Monitor: BenQ 27" LED GL2750HM, this replaced the 17" LG L1715S
HDD: 2TB Seagate Barracuda, ST2000DM001
I had 220 GB of photos on a 232 GB drive, kind of a tight squeeze. Now I've got plenty of space! Aaand yes I should get a dedicated backup drive, I'll do that when I can afford it, in the mean time I have the current 220 GB's of photos on both the 232 and the 2 TB drives. And I've got 200 GB of free space on my third drive, that I've been able to free up by moving stuff on there to the 2 TB. So there's room for temporary backups.
Might I mention to people, he has a Silver Stone Raven RV01, thus that picture is how it actually is, it is not lop-sided. The GPU points upwards with the DVI ports and stuff going out at the top of the case.
I thought that was obvious from the fact that the water in the res would be fighting gravity if it was lopsided lol.

Man, I just went ahead and submitted a link to Silverstone's facebook profile via their messaging. That stuff is absolutely awesome, Marest.
I understand that you aren't all too serious in your disappointment, I just have a habbit of responding with walls, or at least lower fences of text.
The U2312HM is a very respectable e-IPS monitor, which is also quite suitable for gaming. If you need something to look out for.
/shameless marketing for the monitor being used
LG has a very good and rather cheap 23" IPS screen range ;-) Cheap enough that they are price competitive with TN-panels.
... On the hunt for a new laptop ...
Well, I could either get this 27" screen with speakers No, they'll never be as good as actual brand speakers and I have such too, but I do "attend LAN-parties" (never figured out the English term) on a monthly basis and there it's convenient, or I could get a significantly smaller screen without speakers, but with more colors....that I don't need yet, and most people can't see, because they haven't got IPS-screens themselves.
