Any good sites that sell a nice chair or desk? I'd like the chair to kinda recline,have speaker jacks and massage. and the desk to be big enough to hold 2-3 21' monitors and my desktop.

For chairs, go to a good store that has chairs and sit down in each of the chairs and try them out for yourself, it will be much better for you. It's like how you probably wouldn't buy a mattress by looks only nor buy a car without test driving it. Anyway, you might be good off with IKEA for both instances.
Buying furniture online is a bad idea. To find my chair, I went to Staples and sat in every chair that fit my price range until I found one that I liked. To find a desk, you should try a floor model first. That way, you can determine if it's flimsy and made out of shitty materials.
Go to a store and test out chairs as well as different desks. You want to make sure you will be comfortable and have the features you find necessary. You'll want to consider desk height, width, and length; as well as storage space and other features. With the chair you want to be certain that it will be comfortable while sitting for long periods of time. Look for features such as height adjustment, arm adjustment, and even back adjustment. I often switch positions while I'm on the computer so having a chair that you can adjust on the fly is always a good thing.
Get a big fat directors chair you wont regret it. (They actually arrent that expensive if you look for a while) I have had 3 in the past 6 years all around 100-200€ Ugh fuck thats the dutch word. I meanth CEO, manager chair. [img]http://ronntorossian.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/07/chair.jpg[/img]
For the desk I'd just like to make the obligatory Ikea Galant series mention here. Yes they're a bit pricy but my corner galant can easily take my fat ass sitting on it without even flexing, it's so insanely sturdy I don't think I'll buy a new desk for decades, if ever. The metal frame will last an eternity and the tabletops are replaceable if they get too worn but you're looking at $160 for a single corner piece (just large enough for 3 monitors) that will last you practically forever. Best investment I've made so far in my life. Oh and it's really modular too so go nuts picking a combo that works for you. [editline]15th March 2012[/editline] As for the chair, don't cheap out! if it has a wooden base in the seat that everything bolts into it's not gonna last long. Bearing in mind I use my chair many hours every day and I weigh above average but I go through a cheap ass high back office chair every 2-3 years and the cost is adding up. Spend $200 on a high quality chair with metal supports and construction, never look back. Edit: The high-back cloth Volmar ikea chairs are $210, I've sat in them and they radiate good build quality.
Any time of executive chair from IKEA is nice or Staples. But as others said, go to the store to check some out and see which fits you best. I have a chair similar to this: [url]http://www.staples.com/Staples-Sidley-Luxura-Executive-High-Back-Chair-Black/product_923274[/url] It's a little less because it's hard arm rests. But spend the cash on a good chair. You'll thank your back later. For the desk, chipset is dead on. IKEA Galant desks are superb. I have one similar to this: [url]http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S99896735/#/S19806946[/url] However I got a rounded end on the left side and an extension on the right side, so it's massive. Great quality and the T legs are contemporary to fit into any style.

[QUOTE=kaze4159;35173965]Agreeing with this, mine has a velvety fabric and it's comfy as fuck[/QUOTE] I had a velvet/satin type one. Unfortunately, after time if it's a light color the arms and fabric will start to wear and turn to just like raw hide.
a directors chair doesnt seem like a very good computer chair. I'd prefer it to have wheels and shit
