If not, you could use three test benches to minimize the space for your
current three computers.
Photos of a test bench.
At $79 eac, you could try to make a multiple story unit out of
three of the test benches.
Looking at the assembly instructions it seems like combining three
units would not be too hard.
Or, maybe just use a open front, open back bookcase to put the test
benches in using the leftover space for your computer parts, books, ...
The dimensions for the test bench are 14" x 9.5" so finding a
three shelve bookcase to fit, should be doable. Maybe add five inches to
the height for the PS and optical disks the picture show piled on top of
the test bench.
