With the Lexmark S408?
Why ? :eek:

I think it was an HP LaserJet 2100...not anymore though. It got the beat down. I've got a bunch of other videos on youtube of me destroying stuff. Why? Because, all that stuff is broken, and shooting guns is sweet. I think these were shot with my M4.

Are those gun shots or paint shots?

Those probably sell for $10 or $20 if you are lucky. Model is too old. 3rd world country dont mind though.

Now I know why the ATF exists. Well, at least the alcohol and firearm are here. Don't know if MavsX smokes.:D

well, the stuff we shoot is all stuff from my office that has crashed, or is broken. We just pile it up in an office for a few months, and then take all over it home. Then we go out to the range with it. So, I'm sure there would be some sort of issue with making money off of this old junk. We usually go up there with printers, monitors, laptops, blackberrys, hard drives, cell phones. Lots of target shooting. My buddies and I have quite an arsenal between us. Lots of AR's, shotguns, lots of handguns, in the 9mm, .40, and .45 flavors. We all have no priors(duh), never been in any trouble, have our concealed handgun permits, which require background checks and fingerprints down at the local courthouse. I've got a lot more pics and videos, that i haven't uploaded.

It's cool man, It's just a hobby i'm in too. Surprisingly, a lot of computer nerds that i've met are into guns too...

definitely gun shots, that monitor was shot with .223 and .40's and then blown to bits later by turkey shot from a shotgun

Ha, well where i live, all of this is legal. I don't smoke....it's fun times man. doing men stuff!

Posting here and in the workstation 2010 thread.

My setup. Inspiration for the layout of this room came from my paranoia of having my back to the door as well as pictures in this thread and the LCD setup thread. Sorry for the quality of the pictures but I was using a cell phone camera.


Thats 2 25" HP and 1 22" HP in a portrait configuration. All hooked up to a Sager 8760 with only 1 video card, so no eyefinity/3D vision surround for me. :( Still the laptop is a beast.

The desk, which is the Sauder Heritage HIll collection in a "u" shaped configuration.

55" Vizio LCD TV with xbox 360, Playstation 3, and a Bose cinemate system.

This is a horrible picture but this is the view from the desk. This way, during football season, I can make sure I am able to work on classwork and not miss the games. WHO-DEY!!!

More Sauder furniture.

I know wire management is not perfect for the entertainment center but after an hour of trying I gave up. I would say for the entire room, desk and entertainment center, I have about 4 hours of wire management, 35 hours of assembly labor, and 10 hours of general setup involved. It's ALMOST perfect, just need my model of the USS Constitution to put on top of the desk hutch and a model of the original USS Bonhomme Richard to go on top of the bookcases.

Another excellent workspace. Very nice minimalism and clean lines. Also looks like nice speaker placement (I can't really get a feel for the distance the rear speakers are behind you, but they do seem perfectly ear-height. I stopped using 5.1 systems ages ago because of the hassle of speaker placement.

So is nvidia surround worth it on those beasts or not? I have been debating to try it out and buy a third 30 incher, but I can't decide if its worth the cost to just "try it out"

The 980 is only for those that work in the digital field, rendering, making movies, compiliing etc... the 980 is actuarially slower for gaining by a few points. Kick ass processor no doubt but for a few points not worth all that money...no way. i actually ordered one then canceled it.

Get the 950 price is right man...

Do you guys keep the boxes and Styrofoam for your lcd's? I've had my LCD for over a year now and I still have it stored in my closet. I'm thinking of throwing it out now since the TV is out of warranty. Should I do it?

I threw out my three monitor boxes shortly after getting them as living in an apartment doesn't grant you alot of space. I was lucky though cause when one of them wasn't quite working properly. Benq sent me a box for the monitor itself so that I could ship it to them. So really up to you but if you need space then I say just throw it out.

If you have space, store them. I still have the boxes to my 3 Samsungs and when I move next year I'll transport them in the boxes. I also keep the boxes to my motherboards so that when I sell after upgrading I can put them back in the box.

@ digitalcaveman - I'm jealous and thirsty! That is one hell of a setup. If you ever feel like becoming a monk or something make sure you leave that awesome rig to me. I'll look after it well.

Do you need someone to watch it for you while you're at work?
