@rpc180, I am looking at the LG 34 Ultra Wide to replace my 3 23" LG monitors. I am tired of all the space they take up and the ultra wide looks like a nice alternative.

Man... the ending to that game still pisses me off to this day.
I didn't play ME3 until the revised ending was released. I loved everything about the game. I'm planning to replay it, along with all the DLCs, after finishing my current rotation of games.

Check it out at a Microcenter if you have one near you. It definitely feels a little less "immersive". But not having bezels and getting rid of half a dozen cables under the desk feels great!

Revised endings still suck, just suck a lot less is all.
Still, I enjoyed the series enough to do two complete playthroughs with all DLCs; manshep and femshep.

Current setup that is powered by a 5820k.
I'm about to have a similar setup with a 46" TV 1 foot to my left. Need to figure out how I'm going to deal with my surround sound system because I don't want all the front channels to be in my right ear.

I still can't believe how much I changed my setup this year... So this was back in September 2014:

Always have had my computer next to my bed since I'm a cripple, and need to have my bad leg elevated on like four pillows at a time. But even though it made my leg better, it was destroying my back.. so I decided to finally invest in a chair and a real desk!




STILL have to get rid of this damn wallpaper. Having a hard time deciding what color to paint over it. And when we do that, then I'll finally mount my TV to the wall and get it off the ghetto plywood shelf. My setup has come a long way in the last few months. And also got me the BenQ XL2720Z and AOC Q2770PQU, gave one of my old Acer 27" monitors to a friend, and got rid of the little old crappy one I used as a third. And upgraded my old 32" Samsung LCD to the 50" LG LCD.

Could it be that I saw your build on reddit? I think I remember that mouse pad arm rest.
Nice setup all the way. Where do you rest your leg now? On your case?

EDIT: stupid me, it was the 2014 thread...I'm starting to mix things up :)

Haha yep it was the 2014 thread indeed! :) I posted a bunch of times along the way of updating everything!

I actually now rest my leg on top of my Z-5500's subwoofer under the desk, I have a bunch of pillows that I put down there, it actually worked out perfect!

What do you do with all those screens?
I work with c++, x86 asm, and a lot of debugging tools such as IDA Pro and Ollydbg. I work for a seattle based tech company on electronics.

I do some light gaming pretty much just Guild Wars 2. The dust is pretty out of control although that is overboard there as I just finished drilling wall mounts and I'm next door to a horse pasture so dust is non stop. I have to dust daily so I get lazy at times.

It is nice being able to have up my code IDE, schematics, design docs, debuggers, and multiple web sources open. I also mess around a little bit with the stock market.

Just finished a new i5 sff build for a daily debian desktop machine. Quite pleased with how it fits on my Jerker.

Nice view that you've got there. And nice desk. Probably still Ikea's best desk apart from the Galant system.

Nice view...and flooring. IF I lived in a tower building I'd love floor to ceiling windows and having my desk right up against them. Feel like I'm living on the edge :D

I picked up a full galant corner desk with a ton of addons for $80 off of craigslist about 7 years ago. I had to sell it and pickup a jerker when I moved to my new condo. I think I prefer the Jerker if I am honest.

I love natural light so the floor to ceiling windows was a must. I lucked out and the Jerker fits between my column and the wall with literally one inch to spare.

2007 Pc Setup when I was heavily into pc gaming and worked from home, I loved this setup......


......2015 Desktop setup:

but alas I'm a bit older and a bit busier so I'm more mobile hence the tablet\ Surface pro 3. Id like an ultrawidescreen monitor when they are a bit cheaper and do away with the sony vaio all in one. Id dock the surface pro 3 to it as I only play casual games etc. Ill stick some better pics up when get some daylight!

Note: This is probably the most Powerful Sony Vaio All In One PC on the planet and it has glasses free 3d!!

Good looking setups here. I'd post mine, but not much has changed since 2014.

My ill-fated attempt at a DIY desk. I set up everything, last weekend, but by Friday the wood developed a noticeable downward sag in the middle. I thought a solid, hard wood door would be strong enough to hold its shape. Alas, 'twas not to be. :( I still have my old Galant and will move everything back to it, this week.

Here's how it looked before the sagging started:

You still need to run supports across the middle, door looks nice though.

Still have potential :)

^^ Why are you shining your desk lamp on the wall like that?
it bounces it and spreads it out over the wall , indirect lighting , it is about a foot from the wall... most of the time it is the only light on in the room...works for me

Flip it upside down to flatten it out, and brace the bottom with http://www.onlinemetals.com/merchant.cfm?pid=6994&step=4&showunits=inches&id=1268&top_cat=60 Depending on the weight you plan on putting on top of it (3 monitors), you might want to bump up to .25" wall.

Great advice, but I also found several large cracks in the wood after I gave it a closer look. Good news was that the contractor who cut and finished the door gave me a full refund ($225). He swore that the door would be strong enough to hold whatever I put on it. He didn't even want it back, just PayPalled the money to me with an apology. :)

Back to my Galant desk. I still need to clean up the cables. I didn't realize how much more space the Galant had until I tried the door desk.

Try fitting legs at the middle of the desk for support?
