    Your new setup looks awesome, but don't you get an aching neck with that monitor placed above the others?

    I've had it mounted like this for a few days now, wanted to have that part dealt with for when these new ones came. Even had it a little bit higher before this morning, when I lowered it to close the hight of the one below it. So far I have found that it is not high enough to be a problem, in my normal sitting position my head is about 92cm (3ft) away from it and my eye level is just above the bezel between the top and bottom monitor, so the angle I have to look up at is very shallow.

    Wink small update

    update from page 620

    made some changes since last time i posted in december. bought new keyboard, mouse and headphones as i was planing also changed fans, cleaned up the cable mess as much as i could and voided warranty on my PSU by spraying the plastic rim on it and placing custom stickers as i was not able to get my hands on original corsair accessories for it.

    here is link for full album if you are interested. its more like a timeline as i was changing parts and stuff. >>>Album here<<< there is like 120 photos(some even with comentary) tried to pick and upload some which wasnt that bad as i was taking them with my potato phone cam (samsung SGH-U800 yay)

    this is how my corner looks atm :







    Iam not proud of this lol, but w/e i can close the side panel by myself without any help so its fine i guess




    Next target is DELL Professional P2414H LCD since the price of it in my country droped by 1500Kč(almost 60 euro) last week.

    ps. Cheezus do you like my new Zeus stickers ?

    Nice setup you got there Krasuss, one question tho that i see it in other photos too. Why do you place your monitor on top of something else or for ppl that got a monitor that can move up and down they got it at highest setting. I always had mine on like 10cm from desk, anymore and after hours i would get tired.

    well iam quite tall so its for ergonomic reasons, also my LCD is shitty TN panel so the viewing angles are quite bad if you are looking from above....and the tilt back function on this monitor barely works so thats why. actually i should have the monitor even higher...like +10cm cause like this i have my eyes at top bezel height.

    This is what I've always wondered as well. It should be actually more ergonomic to look slightly down at your monitor instead of straight forward or up. That's what I've heard somewhere at least.

    From an ergonomic standpoint you are supposed to be eye level with the top of your monitor in your sitting position. Food for thought when setting up your computers.

    Yea I don't have music playing much at my PC, usually stick to game/video audio if anything, but I still mainly use the speakers over my headset as in the last two months or so, it started to get really uncomfortable during extended use.

    I had them placed in front before I got these monitors, but doing that now is kinda awkward.

    Secondly, a bit of a wet crisis is currently forcing me to have my setup somewhere else. I didn't feel like my computer would be safe where it was.
    Therefore, this is the current setup.

    I really like this char, will be on the lookout for a new one soon. I recently bought a cheap $50 chair from Wal-mart and I can't lean back on it without thinking the back will snap off

    My desktop and laptop are out of date to be quite honest. I'm currently saving up for a Macbook Air, not for gaming, but for DJing reasons.

    Desktop:
    i5 2500K
    16 gigs Corsair Vengeance
    250 gb SSD VisionTek Racer
    3 TB HDD
    1 TB HDD
    1 TB HDD ( I did a lot of video editing :P)
    msi r7770 gpu
    Razer Blackwidow Ultimate and Molten MMO mouse
    Dell Monitor + wallpaper of my oldest kitty Keoki :3
    cheap walmart chair and random wall art my BF found at a garage sale

    Once this desktop bites the dust, I'm probably going to stick with laptop only-- so I don't have any plans to upgrade my desktop.
