    You really want an easy to assemble desk with only 4 pieces? This baby is a no-brainer:
    And it comes in different sizes, too! "Gaming" desk! What a load of bullcrap! LMFAO!

        My gaming desk is just a desk and also has functionality for gamers in that it's a desk. Mine is also water cooled.

                                                  A “gaming” desk would be a desk that doesn’t break or dent when I slam shit on it when I have my tard rages.

                                                      I think the elbow rests are for people who play on low sensitivity in high precision games. Say like a pro who uses his entire arm to aim to be pixel perfect while still maintaining the velocity of anyone else with a higher sensitivity.

It's seen every system i've owned since first buying it for my Commodore Amiga 500+ back in the day. It's made of inch thick MDF in a black ash effect and it's big enough and strong enough to support some pretty hefty gaming rigs so i see no reason to replace it. I reckon i can get another 30 years of use out of it. :)

                                                                                            Resting your elbow on the table is the best gaming advice i have from a pro csgo player. It doesn't stress your wrist and relaxes your whole arm for hours of gameplay.
