You're such a one upper. You need a bigger desk! Like having your PC knocked over?

Update on my cable management:

I finally caved and bought a cable tray that was made for my desk. Here is before and after:

I like that you have a name plate on your home desktop setup.

It's so my wife knows whose desk it is!

Looks much better! Does it drive you crazy that the 2 monitors aren't aligned?

I imagine an adjustable desk works a lot better when the tower is on top of it? Would it work to have your baby tower on the file cabinet to the right?

I mainly use the ultrawide, and have the other monitor for something like email or IM. It's a truly secondary display for me so the alignment doesn't bother me too much.

The cords I have connecting the computer to the monitors, speakers, etc. are shorter than the power cords for everything, so it works best to have the computer closer to those things. I also have my router, cable modem, and phillips hue hub on that cabinet, so it would be a little crowded if I moved the computer there.

I like that your desk gained a cute quote block and an xbox controller. What have you been playing on your non-GPU PC?

The quote block is my wife's way of saying "I didn't have anywhere else to put this thing I bought to decorate the house." I was using the xbox controller to test out the Xbox One streaming from console to PC.

They're working well. I don't believe she's had an issue since setting it up.

We'll move the extra bed down there and it'll be a guest room/storage, and the current guest room will be the baby's room.

Not much to take a picture of yet. We are gonna paint her office so we haven't decorated it so it's really just her desk/computer and a book shelf in there now.
