Hey guys, I finished the purchase of my new home and I really want to add the perfect gaming desk to my den for my PC.

I'm looking for a corner/wedge style with a seating cut out like my work cube has so that my right arm has a table to rest on at the elbow and not dependent on the chair armrest... or resting my left wrist on the table edge for the keyboard functions.

I'm hoping someone here had the same idea and can offer suggestions. Thanks

If you don't mind second hand items, check out Craigslist, Facebook marketplace and nextdoor. You might find a gently used corner desk for a bargain.

On Facebook marketplace in my area, they are selling tons of office furniture like the desk in your photo for like $30-$100

I just picked up a barely used dual motor standing desk frame on Craiglist for 1/3 the price of what brand new ones cost. Now I'm just searching for the table top to go with it.

Sorry I couldn't provide links to new items. Good luck!

I just spent an hour browsing online and NOTHING!

I don't want a hutch with it and I need a riser for 2 monitors, I can probably find a workaround for that.

Everything I saw had one dealbreaking flaw in its design. includes Hutch, keyboard tray, not enough depth, doesnt have a cutout... I can't believe this is so incredibly hard to find...

That's a bummer. Keep in mind that keyboard trays and hutches are pretty easy to remove yourself, typically just a few screws depending on the hutch.

I've found most desks that have a tray don't have much room for the KB on top. Most gaming desks I have seen aren't very deep. I don't like playing with my face close to the monitor which is only 25" but I'd eventually like to go 27" QHD.

I know I am being picky but for the right reasons and I'd like to think someone has had a similar idea in mind.

I'm gonna ask my boss where they got our cubicles from. laugh out loud

i think your name is showing in the pic.

can check out gov surplus. i know we sell our stuff for literally pennies on the dollar. when we got rid of our file bank i think the 4drawer cabinets literally sold for $1. no idea how it's sold though.

personally, i picked up a Hon L shaped desk off craigslist for 125 from a mortgage firm that went under. similar to below.
