What screen res are those at full? I'm always looking for more 3360x1050 since dual 16:10 wallpapers are the hardest to find.

If they're the same I can send you the 100 or so that I have (:

It actually is a lot harder to get wallpaper for different sized dual monitors then two bigger but equal monitors.

I pretty much either grab triple or biggest possible duals and scale them down somewhat or combine two similarly made wallpapers into one, specially useful with some video games which keep the characters wallpapers consistent.

My last resort is editing smaller sizes into bigger ones through the magic of content aware photoshop. My Yukari on the mountains one got it's right half made through that process.

I don't see heaviness being an issue, it isn't a laptop, a desktop is supposed to be fixed on one place, which takes us to number two

Everything can be solved through duct tape, specially cable management.

However, poorly made is something I won't argue against, suffering from one which is designed to accumulate dust.

I lan quite a bit, I move my desktop around my house for various reasons. The thing will shatter if dropped. I know lian-li cases that have survived stair falls intact.

Also you shouldn't have to jury rig cases for cable management, ever.

We ironically cover them up with internet browsers, Inkscape (or other drawing programs), computer games, word processors, and iTunes/Winamp.

Also wanted to share this: found it on Tumblr and it is hard to find the original. It counts because I had a stretched version for my wallpaper for a time.

I don't care about sound, I always have Florence and the Machine on (or something else), space management was hard when I built it but not so much now? I had a really hard time getting my video card in cause it's huge. Cables I don't have a problem with cables mostly cause I have everything where I want it and don't LAN (wish I did). But eh different strokes for different folks.

More fiction than anything else though. Sun Tzu's Art of War barely covers a couple sides of A4, let alone fill a big chunky hardback like that. :smalltongue:

Before I would only use an image-less filled black backdrop as I remember when you'd get system lag from having fancy background images.

That's always seemed pretty normal to me. :smallbiggrin: We have... three, close to four times as many computers as people.

Since I've got it now and I might as well... this is how my laptop has been for the past year-and-a-half (also potentially stretchy for the screen):

(My laptop doesn't have near as many games, because it is close to six years old and actually has some trouble running Neverwinter Nights at full settings.)

I really should get rid of some of my icons - particularly on the desktop - but alas, I am lazy and like to get at my games quickly.
