Had this machine for 3 years now and not had a single problem. The notables include an Asus Z170-A motherboard, Intel i5-6600k processor and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 graphics card.

When I was growing up we could never afford a decent computer so I could never play the latest, most graphically sophisticated games. At one point our little home desktop was 5 years old and overheating trying to run Garry's Mod on the lowest settings. WoW was never a problem though and this machine is going to have it's fair share of that in 20 days or so.

Really nice place to sit and work/play! Would have loved a picture of the actual computer!



Below I present my recently built battlestation, courtesy of IKEA.

The PC on the right is the PC that I actually game on, and it's decently powerful as I like to play more modern games too. It's also the first PC I assembled all by myself. I used to buy prebuilts but I really want to experience the joy of building for myself. Notable specs are:

  • MSI B450m Mortar

  • Ryzen 7 2700x

  • G.Skill 3200Mhz DDR4 CL14 - 16Gb

  • MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Armor

  • NZXT H400
  • The monitor is an LG 34" ultrawide at 2560x1080 resolution. The pixel density isn't the greatest, but I like high refresh rates (it's 144hz) and I didn't quite have the budget for both an expensive 3440x1440 monitor and a high-end graphics card powerful enough to run it at 60+ framerates.

    I enjoyed the experience of building my own system so much that I ended up taking apart my old system and rebuilding it in a new case, mostly for the hell of it. That's the computer on the left. I currently don't have a real use case for it, but I can't bring myself to sell it either. It might end up serving as a dedicated streaming PC, if I ever decide I want to try that. The case and the CPU cooler are the only new parts on it. Specs are:

  • Asus Maximus VII Ranger

  • Intel i7-4790k

  • Corsair Vengeance 2400Mhz DDR3 CL11 - 16Gb

  • MSI GeForce GTX 980

  • Fractal Design Meshify C
  • Hope you guys like it!

    Mambo that looks incredible!

    I like the owls too, been meaning to get booked in for an owl tattoo for a while now. I have a weird thing for owls.

    Here you go!

    It's really nothing special, I bought it specifically because it was a featureless black box that kept noise down to a minimum.

    Here's my current setup, recently moved my rig into an NZXT H200.

    Working on a few minor mods to clean up the inside (custom cables and 90 degree adaptors for the motherboard I/O).

    The image links you used are on a web server which blocks them from being used on other websites. But they can be downloaded directly from the URL, so I moved them over to a different image host for you. You can probably see the images on your screen because they're already cached, but nobody else can. Here they are so other people can see them:

    Thanks my dude, I updated the post.

    My current setup is... A laptop on my lap, and mouse on the arm of a sofa, lol.
    Cons of living in Japan = no space for a battlestation 🙁

    While it's cozy enough, I'm looking for a "foldable laptop stand" that I can use instead, coz I think laptop on lap can't be good for your neck / back.

    Edit: Ding 30!

    This is what my setup looked like two years ago when we moved in. Evolved a little since then, but no fancy lighting stuff 😀

    That's too many screens. I've done 4 displays before and realized that once I couldn't see all of them at the same time I started having to check over my shoulder for stuff and I kept losing things, lol. Seems like 3 displays is the sweet spot.

    The one on the left is a Notebook and no longer there Smile It's actually just 2 these days, the 27" 144hz in the middle and the one left of it.
    The third screen has been replaced by 32" TV to the left of this setup, which I sometimes use for playing Single Player stuff Smile

    Decided not to bring the threadripper system home, and that my old Core 2 QX6850 system I used when I played Vanilla wasn't going to cut it at max graphics anymore. So I threw together a new rig for classic:

    - Ryzen 3600
    - 16GB RAM
    - RTX2080
    - 1TB NVMe SSD
    - Fractal Meshify C

    And added some bias lighting behind the screen

    I'm ready man. Less than 4 days to go.
