I like the Ikea Jerker line. You can get a desk as table, or you can get 
the model I got that has the desktop and a secondary shelf. Put the 
desktop up high and use the shelf down below for holding your CPUs (like 
a graphic artist workstation), put the desk low and use the shelf as 
overhead storage. Add-on bits, including a shelf extension to add a 
second shelf. I've got a ton of books sitting over my desk now.

The one problem -- Jerker isn't exactly cheap, but it's not hideously 
expensive, I think it looks very clean and sharp, and it's held up under 
a couple of years of constant abuse for me. Good stout construction, 
easy to put together, and it never fails to draw comments.
