My work and play station (freshly cleaned now, so thanks!). I removed the laptops and parts for things that I'm working on presently to make a cleaner picture. Also mouse pads with business logo (edited out the name on one). Work/every day PC underneath, just an i5-4400 Dell XPS with that I put a GTX760 into when it was my primary gaming computer also. I switch between it and my gaming rig with a button, but also have to change main monitor input with a few clicks on the monitor. The rack to the left holds computers waiting for pickup, or the miserable remains of some that could not be fixed. In between it and my desk is a computer I use for data recovery projects. Basket full of chargers on the floor on the right, along with a lot of dust and a tangle of wires I'll fix someday. Far left monitor has all 4 major inputs so it's good for working on any desktop and connector. It's hooked up to a small 4 port KVM switch. My main monitor is a 27" PG278QR and a curved 32" Samsung for watching news or talk shows while I work. I have some storage drawers behind the chair for tools.

My rig is: Phanteks Eclipse p600s, ASUS Maximus Hero XI, i9-9900K (no OC right now), 32GB(2x16) 3200MHz DDR4, RTX 2080Ti, Corsair h100i, Corsair 850W PSU.. Primary SSD is 512GB Samsung 970 Pro and I have 2x2TB ADATA SSDs and 1x4TB HDD. 7 Corsair LL series fans usually all white like in my profile pic, but running spiral rainbow right now. Corsair K70 Lux keyboard and ASUS ROG Spatha mouse. In the wide shot, also on the black desk on the right is an iMac I use for Mac work, when necessary. The desk to the right of that was supposed to be temporary but right now it's holding stuff that I moved out of the way to get my clean pics. Same with stuff on fireplace. Not visible on the other side of the couch is a pile of about 25 stuffed toys for my doggy.. ah heck I posted pics of Teddy now :p Proud daddy here.

The desk was given to me by stepmother. She found it somewhere and thought it would be perfect for me. She was very right. So spacious. It can be a wee bit difficult to find a loose screw on the marble though.

Great setup and lovely job on the build! What cable extensions did you use, might I ask? I love the clean look of tidy cables and the closed cable combs really provide volume and show them off beautifully. Did you buy them like that or did you make them yourself? I read somewhere that you have to undo the connector at the end of the PSU cable to attach closed cable combs like that yourself, and that's a bit too scary for me to attempt.
Thank you! The white cables are from Cable Mod if I remember correctly. You can customize what colors / combs / styles you want, but they can get pretty expensive. I had these in my parts box and they fit perfectly for the 24-pin mobo and two 8-pin PCIe in this build. I'm really pleased with how they look. I bet you could make your own if you wanted!

This definitely has the vibe of a workstation where lots of stuff gets done. I like it. Also, that marble counter top is beautiful.

This is from nine years back but I've got essentially the same setup with a little bigger TV and a little bigger monitor. Also, I dusted. Once. ;)

TV above, computer between. Hmmm, I've still got the DVD-RW box sitting there. Guess it might be getting to be time to maybe toss that out...

I think a DVD player still can be usefull occasionally, but it's personal. I have a lot of DVD's and most of the time I prefer watching them on my pc than on my TV.

I love the look of this build. The all white color scheme and the big, wide open case are giving me heavy sci-fi vibes.
I tried it with my pc too haha. But then it turned out that the inside of my case was black and half of my mobo was black too so I decided to go for a black and white :p. Guess I should research better if I want to do an all color build.j

EDIT: I find this hilarious, I just found out that I can see on my physical RAM when it's being updated by iCue.
