Looking for something large enough for two monitors and big sized speakers.

 

Do you have a personal recommendation of what you're currently using? Budget is $350 CDN max, or roughly.

 

Currently eyeing this one: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B06XHKPWNQ/?coliid=I2JNBJ173GKCSB&colid=31JMIYV3PJQ0U&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

I'm using a Bulo desk, 2x0,80

they work great, can easily fit like 3 or 4 monitors, are build really well, but cost a little much brand new.

Here they are available second hand for around 100 euros, not sure about Canada tho

Ikea.

 

Honestly, the one you're looking at isn't worth anywhere near that. You can build something of comparable quality for less than half that.

IKEA Greton is what im using, fairly cheap slab of massive oak at 120x75 cm. i fit three monitors and my MASSIVE speakers on here just fine :) 

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

Ikea isn't big in Quebec, most of what I'm seeing is a limited selection for mostly the same price.

I built a desk from some lumber I got at Home Depot. I drew up what I wanted and laid out the dimensions so I knew what sizes I needed. I went to the store dropped $100 and bought two 4x8 sheets of 3/4" birch (honestly I can't recall what the wood was, but it is a smoother grain) and had them cut it for me to the sizes I needed. I spent a few days sanding and then assembled separate sections (easier to move). Brought it up to my office and fully assembled. I have a huge amount of desk space now and I ended up installing a mini pull out rack in the lower shelving for my UPS, power conditioner, and network switch.

 

All in all, if you have the ability I highly recommend building your own. It's not as difficult as you might think (especially if you're familiar with basic hand and power tools) and it's quite enjoyable.

Man we built a wooden box in high school and mine was the worst my teacher had ever seen. ;_;

Well fair enough. If building isn't your thing you could always ask around with friends and family to see if they could help you out with putting something together. It's never too late to start learning something new. ?

Build your own, it will then end up to exact standards and you will appreciate it more.
