I dont know your budget, what you need and where your going to buy. That said, cant give any suggestions. Which is also why I asked you to fill out the new build advice form.

@Nw333, I know you are all excited to answer a new question and that's good since participation is encouraged, but the user is asking for gaming desk recommendation, not on building a gaming desktop!!

@PO, wouldn't that highly depended on your personal preference on furniture and the amount of room you have?

No laminated wood or particle board. For me those desk don't last because the sweat from gaming. Must be hard wood, currently the desk is oak and over 10 years old. Also, it is not a flat pack desk. It's already all glued up in the workshop, so no wobble what so ever. Suggest you go to op shop, they sometimes have nice old furniture that may just be what you need and within budget, as well as recycling for the environment and money for good course.

Ok thx, do you have a specific desk in mind? Or do you reccomend having a look around to see what suits my needs best?

As long as it won't fall apart from palm sweat (if you are sweaty), solid and not wobble, the surface is smooth and level, enough space so you can fit what you need on it with sufficient space to move your hands and it is of comfortable height, then it makes a good desk. Have a look around is the best way to find what fits your need.

There is a carpenter workshop near my place that can custom make furniture. My current desk was bought from there, but of course, I didn't custom made mine, it's just one of the pre-made desk on the floor. So if money is not a problem, then a custom made desk is another way to go.

Realize i'm a bit late, threads already answered.

Invest in some shelves near your Desk as well. If its up against a wall, get a floating shelf from IKEA and mount it somewhere in easy reach. That way desk clutter that isnt immediately useful can just be put there, instead of micro managing piles of stuff on the desk.

Currently I have two shelves, one's built into the desk above it and the other on my left, both are full of random books, cups, discs (even an old motherboard with an Athlon X2 inside), while my desk is completely clear. Without these shelves, I would have had to get proactive about clearing my desk! :lol:
