    You will probably want to stick rubber feet on the side of it, and it's probably not going to be built to have 25 pounds of CRT monitor sitting on it, and it's not the best of ideas when it comes to power hungry graphics cards, but it's not going to kill anything if you carefully plan your fan placement and pick your case carefully.

    The electrons fall out if you keep it sideways like that

    It's actually better to have it on it's sides since the electrons no longer have to flow upwards.

    There's no simple answer, you'll have to use your head and consider air movement. As long as you have adequate air flow it's fine.

    If small monitor + solid pannel you should be okay. Glass technically is strong enough but it's breakable and harder to fix WHEN you scratch it. The biggest problem with such a setup is you need a fairly deep desk to still have room for your keyboard.

    It's not if it has a HDD. HDDs should be mounted horizontally.

    gravity is going to mess with the rotational velocidensity of any spinning rust drives, but other than that you should be good
    the effect is usually minor anyways

    VerticalBlack folk have to put sticks in their computer to keep their gpu from snapping the pci slot clean off the motherboard. Not to mention the giant metal brick that is your cpu heatsink. If you look at the parts inside a computer for one second it will become immediately extremely obvious that horizontal is dramatically better in every way.

      You know the card is secured with screws to the case and the load of keeping the card from falling is on the screws and not the slot, right? Those support braces are so the back of the card doesn't bend because it can damage the card itself, not the fricking motherboard slot.

        My bad. VerticalBlack folk have to put sticks in their computer to keep their gpu from sending itself to snap city then, I actually didn't know this because I'm not moronic enough to have this problem in the first place.
