A desk that has to hold two monitors side by side and a mid-tower PC is going to be a pretty long desk. I think the two you have linked would be able to fit everything, though you might want to go with putting your monitors on an arm to free up some space underneath the monitors (like for speakers). The adjustable standing/sitting desk from Office Depot looks nice too, for those times when you want to stand up for a bit.
Just as a another possibility I wanted to mention a desk I have had my eyes on for a little bit. This gaming desk (amazon link) is a good 15"-20" smaller than what you are looking for, lengthwise, but it has space for the two monitors, speakers, and probably the PS4 depending on how you lay it out. For the PC though you would definitely need to put it on a separate cart or box or something. Just some food for thought.
This is what I use. Inexpensive, plenty of places to run pesky cables, fairly stable and easy to modify and add on to if you've got a drill. I run a yoke and quadrant mounted to the table and HOTAS on homemade desk mounts.
I use this gaming desk since it's light weight and can be easily moved around. Plus it has location for headphone to hang. I have two. Price was much cheaper two years ago though.

Not the most flattering photo, but I always appreciate a good recommendation.
How customizable is it really? Can you change a lot of the placements or heights?

I believe thats the one i have, and i love it. It has a spot for everything and the height works for my size. Some advice, pay attention to the height of the desk, where the monitor would sit, arm positioning, and if your chair will fit well with the desk. It makes such a different to have good positioning and good posture, especially if youre playing for long periods.
Thanks for the reply dude, the motherboard you selected was actually my first selection of mATX board, honestly the only reason I switched was the color layout of the ASRock and seeing it recommended a few times. I actually had the MSI 1060 originally too cause I was going for a black and red layout from the start but thought a mainly white interior would look slick.
The Seagate hard-drive is something I somehow never seen and will probably go that route as I've never had a problem with one. You're point about the mail-in rebate is true and I probably will go with Amazon if the price difference is minimal as I am a prime member and seems to be the easiest option.
That Phanteks Case is real slick, I just checked measurements and it would have the same problem as my current case. I recently downsized on my desk from a large glass L sectional desk to a smaller desk (https://www.amazon.com/Atlantic-Gaming-Desk-Machine-Specific/dp/B0058O8EN8) and it was a bit smaller and awkward than I first imagined.
Struggle to fit 2 monitors on and the legs sort of angle out so with my current case it doesn't fit nicely between the legs out of the way.
I guess for monitor I'll wait and see, I normally only game on one and have web browser or OSRS running on the second so I'd have no problem dropping to a 720 monitor if that would allow me to pull better graphics to a 144hz if that's a possibility to consider?
I use the Atlantic Gaming Desk.
I think all the extra crap makes it look ugly though, I mostly just liked the utilitarian carbon fiber black look, so I only have the base desk with the drawer, the monitor stand and the cup holder for convenience.
I'll definitely have to get rid of the monitor stand if I get the 34", possibly the other two also. The 23.6" I have now has a stand that's already almost too large for the monitor stand.
I'd like to repaint my desk. I own this desk https://www.amazon.com/Atlantic-Gaming-Desk-Machine-Specific/dp/B0058O8EN8?th=1 .
My question is how do I go about doing this with whats on top? If it was just paint I would sand it then prime and paint. However the website describes it as "charcoal colored carbon fiber laminated". Should I still just sand it down? Can I just paint over it?
I have this but instead I bought it Walmart for $100
I didn't install all of those trays/stand on to it. I just installed the legs of the desk so the surface is just flat.
I bought this a few years back when I moved into a new place and was on a tight budget. It's worked out great. Very sturdy and perfect height for me. Headphones hanger and cup holder are a really nice touch.
Indeed. Got it as a house warming gift from my mom since my boyfriend and I sold his old, long desk we had been sharing to make the move lighter. Worked perfectly for my laptop setup I had and, though a bit small for three monitors, it works really well for my current setup after taking off a few things.
Atlantic Gaming Desk; $105 on Amazon: http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0058O8EN8?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00
I gave myself a $350 budget and ended up getting the Atlantic, and it has been great. Highly recommended.
This is the best budget desk that I could find and I don't think I could do better. Love this thing.
It's got speaker holders, controller holders, and phone holders. Plus, it's not cheapass particle board and seems like it will hold up for a long long time. So glad I found this thing.
Sorry, may not be long enough for you though.
with the money i can save on mailin rebate... i can also get this desk: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0058O8EN8/ref=psdc_3733671_t3_B001FB5LE8 please tell me if it is sturdy and if i should get it! i dont care that its hard to setup. as long as its a good desk :D
I just bought this and it's frigging great. I expected cheap particle board but the desk top is quite solid. It also looks great with a little cable management which is simple with this desk. And bonus, it's really cheap.
I bought this desk solely because it has a built in cup holder. It's honestly the best purchase I've ever made.
I own 2, gave a 3rd to a friend who needed a desk. Thick durable plastic coating. I live at my desk. Cheap, works great.
It's an Atlantic Gaming Desk, I needed something small because of how small my room is so I recommend it, I took off the phone charging stations, disk/controller mount, and monitor stand because I figured having a flat surface would be a bit more clean, here's an Amazon listing if you're interested. https://www.amazon.com/Atlantic-Gaming-Desk-Computer/dp/B0058O8EN8/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=atlantic+gaming+desk&qid=1593048999&sr=8-5
It's just how my desk naturally looks. I just didn't put all the junkish gamer accessories on the sides and it's been doing me quite well.
It's a pretty wicked desk, to be honest.

So this is exactly what I built a year ago, for the prices I got. Except the processor I couldn't find whatever I paid for it. So it's probably more expensive than what I paid. Plus I got tomb raiders for free. Also pc part picker says my wams is incompatible with my motherboard but guess what it is compatible lols
ps u need more wams
What desk do you guys use? I currently use this one and it's just way too tiny for me in terms of width and length for me.
They are part of the desk. Here is the desk.
5'10, 140-150 lbs, anything that won't cause me back pain. This is the table that I use although once I find a good chair I'll try to replace this table with a better one.
Don't think they make gaming chairs with places for game pads on them because then you'd be prone to tripping over cords or ripping them out of their sockets.
Desks have gamepad mounts/holders though:
I am using this desk.
It works well for me.
I'm 6'4 and leg room isn't a problem
It's actually a lot better than I originally thought it was going to be.
enough room for 2 monitors
it's the one I have
I don't think it's carbon fiber: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0058O8EN8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
