    Just curious to see how many things people have connected to their PCs.
    And what is it that's plugged in?

    I've got 14 cables running into mine, it's a mess :o

    3 for monitors
    1 USB HDD dock
    2 for Keyboard + Hub
    1 Mouse
    1 G13
    1 Network
    2 Printer
    2 Speaker
    1 Power

    Mine looks neat from the front, but not so much looking in behind :rolleyes:

    My average doesn't look so bad ;)

    3 x DVI
    1 x USB sound
    1 x USB headphones
    1 x USB G25
    1 x USB key/mouse receiver
    1 x USB iphone/ipod
    1 x USB microusb
    1 x ethernet
    1 x power

    Looks much worse with the monitor power cables, G25 cables, modem/router/ethernet/IP phone on and around the desk... then consider that it's in the living area with the TV, HTPC and surround sound. It's a bloody mess, actually.

    Less the better for me as I frequently have to get the pc out from under the desk which means removing the cables.....and I hate having to remember the order of the speaker cables.
