My cables are getting out of control. I was thinking of getting some velcro zip ties so they can be opened and re-used. Anyone have any cool racks or mechanisms for cable management?

I use cable ties, although they can't be opened up like the velcro ones.

Sorry, I should have specified.

I want something for all the wires, from my speakers, monitor, PC, KVM, router, printer, and a partridge in a pear tree :p

As Grandmaster said cable ties work pretty well for that, I know there are kits you can buy for doing just this, they come with velcro I think. not sure on price though.

As for that partridge, might wanna call animal control on that one.

Ha, thanks for the tip on the partridge :)

As I don't want to go drilling in my new desk, it seems velcro ties (which I already have), is my best option.

Home depot and get some 3/4" flex tubing this will let you hide spaghetti. you can also get 1" tubing and the like.

Tubing is a good idea until you decide to move the location of all that crap around. Then you can have one dismantling everything first :p

(I speak from experience)

But if you aren't going to be moving it anytime soon, tubing would work well. I used to use tubing before doing the cable tie thing.

I was going to recommend tubing for the inside of the case, but didnt think it would be a good idea for the outside. It works great for the inside of the case, makes it very easy to condense budles of wires and such.
