Submission + - What's the best chair for a geek? 2

Uglor writes: My latest in a long line of cheap office chairs broke, spilling me to the floor in a less than dignified manner. I need to buy a new chair for my desk at home. For the last several years I have been buying the same generic $50 black executive office chair. They usually last a year or two, then break. I spend 8 hours at work in a pretty decent office chair, then usually come home and spend several hours more in front of my computer. I'd like to buy a decent new one that will actually last. Does anyone have suggestions?

My criteria are:

1. Tough: I spend 12 hours a day in a chair. I'm hefty, so the chair needs to support me.
2. Comfortable: I want to be able to stand up from a 6 hour gaming session without my ass being numb.
3. Affordable: The less the better. More than the $50 cheapies I normally buy is ok, but no $1000 Aerons.
