I'm looking for an ergonomic chair for big & tall folk.

I spend 12 hours a day in front of a computer, and I'm willing to invest in a fancy ergonomic chair. Trouble is, I'm about 6-foot-7, 320 pounds, ands most of the run-of-the-mill $150-200 office chairs I've had in the past from Office Depot and the like break down after 1-2 years.
I don't mind investing in an expensive chair, but the brand names and models everyone talks about (Herman Miller, Steelcase, etc) don't make models to support my frame.
I've found some "big and tall" chairs that claim to support 400-500 pounds, but I don't recognize the brands, and I'm reluctant to drop $300-500 on a chair without knowing anything about the company's reputation. (It doesn't help that Google searches for this topic are littered with sketchy storefronts and spammy review sites.)
So, all you big and tall MeFi readers, what do you sit on and do you recommend it?
