I would like to put my power supply, antenna tuner and icom 718 on the same large desk as my computer HP tower. Am I risking any damage to my computer. Also do you have a recommendation for a surge protector.

Cooling will be the largest issue. All three items mentioned generate heat and without a good air flow, they might cause the computer to overheat. I presume that your antenna is an outdoor antenna. As such, stray RF should not be an issue provided everything is properly grounded.
