    Some sort of games console(s), obviously. I was going to say nerdy books but I suppose they're a bit old fashioned now. What about posters? ;)

    Renewed- Now that's a nerd cave! Definitely a computer hooked up to a large flat screen TV just for starters.

    Besides the obvious ( flat screen tv or monitor) you might also consider an x10 or insteron system. A starter kit can be had for 100.
    Dim or turn on lights ( or any electrical device) automatically by programing everything with your computer or with a remote while sitting on your favorite chair.

    I have a nice little nerd cave. It's a desk I made out of shelves and glass. It wraps all around me, with a shelved wall behind me. I have my iMac off to the side with it connected to a 37" 1080p HDTV. I have all my game systems connected to it (Xbox 360 mostly for Netflix, PS3 for Bluray, and a few other older systems). I will put up a picture tomorrow morning.

    I'm in a similar boat, bought a house last year, finally getting around to properly setting up my home office in our half basement. Difficulty is that it's got a support pole dead center in the room, really interrupting my ability to put in a decent sized couch of any sort, and 2 of the walls have storage closets on them that I need access to.

    Attached a shot of my current setup, it obviously needs work...

    How about something like Gene Hackman's set up in the movie Enemy of the State. Or the hacker in Bruce Willis' Die Hard IV.
