And before some douchebag says something about the speakers, can't set them up in 5.1, and they will be gone soon anyway.

It is a custom monitor stand made from a 2x6 and a 3/4" piece of lead pipe. It is bolted to the desk using a little flangy thing that the pipe screws into. Then all the monitors are attached to the 2x6 with cheap 15$ monitor arms. All in all it cost me about $75 for everything. The only probably is I had to drill holes in my desk for the bolts, but my desk is a POS anyway.

Here are more pics. Also, I discovered that putting command hooks on the back of monitors is a great place to store USB cables.

that rule is created by people who have < 3 monitors and thus have monitor envy

having 3 monitors is useful, and depending on what you're doing, even more can be efficiently used.

You know you could have taken another picture after you fell down and got back up.

My battle station.
Server running on the left is showing IRC and it basically is a always on file server torrent box when I'm home. Both monitors are hooked up to my gaming machine for dual screen goodness when I feel like it. An xbox 360 under the desk connects to the left screen along with the desktop.
