Looking For New Desk To Work At

Not 100% sure if this would be the correct place on the forum to ask this question, but I thought I would try here.

Since I've just received my Xmas bonus, I'm looking around again for a new desk to setup my equipment on with the top of the desk would be holding 2/3 Monitors (Currently using a 27" ASUS DisplayPort Monitor with a 20" Dell Angled T-Series Touchscreen as a control surface), USB Keyboard/Mouse Combo, 49-Key MIDI Keyboard, some stomps, Audio Interface and a standalone 9U Rack Bay (Workstation remaining on the floor due to the size and the weight of the case). I've just purchased some floor-standing speaker stands to house behind the desk at head height to rest my ADAM's on so that shouldn't be an issue.

I was wondering if anyone has any good recommendations for a desk or workbench surface which is good for housing equipment on? Ideally, I would be looking into a straight desk with a length of around 1800mm and above (2400mm being the maximum I could support) and an ideal depth of at least 700mm or maybe even joining two 1200mm desks together to get a good length. I do have a 1.5M x 1.5M Corner desk currently, but it's semi-broken with one of the legs currently bending at a dodgy angle and it's very awkward to work around in the room currently. As well as holding my own audio and computing equipment on it, I occasionally use it as a surface to support & repair friends/family's machine's on, hence why the longer length would be super useful.

I did contact some office furniture suppliers after eyeing up some pretty decent deals but it seems that alot of them in the UK at least are having supplier issues currently, making the situation abit more problematic than it should be. My ideal budget for this would be around 200 and at least weight support for around 75-100KG to help house future equipment purchases. Not sure if any of you would know of any good desks to recommend but I thought it would be worth asking!

A big desk.

If you're no going to use the computer aside from PC gaming socializing or porn, Just get a big desk. And use some simple things to makes levels. Most important levels being your monitors. Shelves on top the desk. Easy.

For power and wiring you have complete control where it sits no matter what kind of desk you use. Hide it under the main desk, or on the side. Fun with mounting supplies.

Check out auctions/estate sales/whatever passes for craigslist where you are for antique office furniture. Anything you buy new for less than around $2000 is going to pale in comparison to the classic oak office desk of the 1920s-50s. The stuff that was used in schools and offices back then were built by hand from amazing hardwood and made to last the ages.

Mine's 4x5, weighs a ton, and doesn't even creak when two full grown adults stand on it. It will be just as serviceable for my great-grandchildren as it is for me, and it cost me $150, plus beer to convince friends to help me haul it.

Not mine, but looks a lot like:
