Having a large computer table is ideal for putting the PC on top of it, and also having Ultra-panoramic screens or multiple configurations. However, there are times when we no longer need it more space because dismissed, and if we had chosen a smaller table we would have included some such alternatives they can provide our PC ecosystem with many functional functions.
Is a large desk always a better option?
We are not saying that it is not good to have a large desk; simply, what we are saying is not always the best choice, but it will obviously depend on what you need to have on the table, the number and size of the monitor, etc. In any case, if you look at all the manufacturers selling game tables that are already built, they have very optimized attributes, because they are not built – almost none – to have a PC up, to begin with.
What we are talking about are the times when we encounter situations like the one in the picture above, where space is wasted so much. Wouldn't it be better to have a little table and, in the remaining space, be able to bookshelf? Because if you look at it, it has a PC on the floor, and under the table there are some audio equipment that would be neatly placed on a shelf next to it.
The fact is, even if you have space, sometimes it's better to have a table that is longer in size to have greater flexibility and usability. You may not need to have a lot of things on the table to be able to create a fun and adequate activity or a small recreational area, leaving room for other needs.
Now size right?
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Do you want to put the PC case on the table? (Recommended, you get less dust and dirt than you are on the floor).
- How much to monitor and what size? Will you use an arm to place them, or each one in their place?
- Do you have a standard size keyboard or TKL?
These questions will help you determine the right desk size. Now, let's give some examples about the recommended range:
- Ultrawide monitor or up to three monitor and tower on table: 150 cm wide.
- One monitor up to 27 inches or two 24 inches and a tower on the table: 120 cm wide.
- One monitor up to 27 centimeters and a tower over: 90 cm wide.
- Single monitor up to 24 centimeters with tower below: 80 cm wide.
All of this, of course, depending on your preference each, but these are our recommendations. Now, with the depth of the desk, we'll be clear, because as you know the correct distance to the screen causes us unseen fatigue and helps us not feel back pain so we don't turn our heads.
So, if you have a track of 24 inches or more, we recommend the table you have at least 80 cm in depth, more if possible when your Ultra panorian or using multiple monitors.
