Default Where to get a good desk?

I need a desk to relocate my custom built comp into my room from the basement...

I was wondering where you guys get your desks, and can you reccomend any places to get a good desk in the US?

Also, Please no desks with lower shelving for the pc, I wanna showcase the pc! (Monitor and Case on same level)

i wouldn't buy desks online. there the kinda thing you need to see upfront. any place like wal-mart or zellers(target for US) is a good place to buy desks.

lian li's good (i dont like them because I think there are case makers such as rosewill who can make cases that do what they should for a fraction of the price :P), and there stuff is great quality, bit im guessing hes not going for something expensive (well he said tht himself :P), and the lian li desk is probably hella-expensive.

And Im pretty sure your reffering to this desk:

and im pretty sure thats one expensive desk. it does look sweet tho :P

Ikea is the shit, that looks fien to me. its over 5 feet long so you could easily fit your case the long way (to show off the window :P), and your feet. get it in black its kickars3
