Welcome to House Repair Talk. By chance are you using a humidifier?

Heat from the the computer stuff creates air flow that is different than any other room and the static attract dust. I too am hoping someone has a suggestion.

Have you tried a stand-alone air filtration unit?
I run a Holmes air purifier in my room and it seems to work well.

I dont think it can ever be totally avoided, I just do my weekly minimal cleaning to avoid build up of dusts

Default Dust

What type heat do you use? If it's forsed hot air then buy a better grade Hepa filter. An electronic static filter should be able to be added to the return air line, run a humidifirer. Add filters to eash of your floor registers. There sold at Lowes, HD any hardware store.
