    Post your computer/gaming-corner!

    Please keep in mind: the rules from the Post Your Gaming setup thread apply to this thread as well. Keep your pictures slimmer than 800px please!

    I know we have a "Post your gaming setup!" thread, but I have recently been more and more curious how people actually have their surroundings set up. I personally find it equally important to spend a bit extra on a nice chair, a proper desk, good monitor(s), keyboard and mouse, speakers/headphones/etc and so on. I also much prefer to have a large space to "move around" and keep all my computer-related stuff in.

    So, in short, how does your computer or gaming corner look? List what peripherals you have - monitor, speakers, desk, chair, etc.


    You have probably seen mine already so I won't bloat with it (I'll post when I update it though - got some stuff incoming). I'm sure there are folks out there who have fairly impressive setups!


    Edit: Updated my corner a bit

    kind of a bad picture, but my room is a low light room, so photo's always look like crap, here's what it looks like with the normal lighting

    but, i prefer a very clean yet functional look, i had the monitors on the desk before, but it felt too cluttered

    Did a recent cleanup on the table, just ignore that stool with a bunch of papers, it's not usually there =p I was studying for some papers and tests at the university and then the professors went on a strike, so the papers just kind stayed there until now haha







    Just got those Shure SRH 440 and I'm pretty damn happy!
    Should be it for the rest of this year. Going to change the case for the looks if I decide to change CPU next year, but other than that, pretty damn happy with the setup!

    Only bad thing here is the stupid amount of mosquitos!

    Got the desk just last week, the cable management is a bit better now.

    The PC stand that came with the desk is actually pretty decent, normally I wouldn't use one.

    The price depends on where you live. If you live in Denmark its around 250$ but in the american Ikea its only 170$. It has plenty of space so I guess that monitor will be able to fit since I can have 2 24" monitors, the CM scout casis and a PS3 all next to eachother... but you can customize the galant desk if you need more space but this is the one I use http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/pr...18/#/S39837013

    I got it second hand (think "flea market"). No clue where it originates from.

    Got a couple of pictures here because my room always has action going on.

    My desk.







    My cat (Banshee) at my feet.



    Brother's desk is on the other side.



    No one ever sleeps on the top bunk, so the cats (Oreo) took it over as their haven.



    My dog (Madison) spends most of the day right here.



    Beer and water in the mini-fridge with coffee on top.

    This is my relatively new setup (January '12). I used to play on a MacBook in my bed so this is a pretty big change for me (and needless to say, 1000% better for playing WoW both generally speaking and performance-wise). I need a new chair though -- the one I use is probably 10 years old and I hate that it doesn't have armrests. I also don't currently use a mousepad but I'm probably going to get a Razer pad soon.
