It's a very nicely balanced arrangement. Get the feeling you might have played the Witcher at some point too for some reason :p

Maybe if your computer wasn't so freaking fat it'd be a possibility. Ever consider putting it on the floor? That's what I do with mine and it frees up a lot of space on the desk, is a bit quieter, and allows cables to be a  lot neater. But then you have to deal with the ergonomic issue of twisting your head that much to see your peripheral monitors. My 3-monitor setup is such that the left monitor is vertical and used mostly for reading and the rightmost one is horizontal. I don't  use the rightmost one all that much though because it does cause a lot of neck strain to look at very long.

I am curious to know if you think the curved ultrawide montor is worth it over a more standard ratio flat monitor.

The case is that "fat" because the motherboard mounts horizontal instead of vertical.

I don't want to put it on the floor because the desk is a sit/stand desk and that would mean I'd need extension cable for literally everything when I wanted to stand.

Putting computers on the floor is a bad idea for cooling anyway, especially on carpet.

This case has no intakes on the bottom but I still agree, don't like to put them on the floor if I can help it.
