You must not be very tall.. I frequently bump my desk with my thighs while getting up.. and I have a jerker that can fit an HAF932 with 8-9 inches of clearance.. I'd be sure that I'd bump the desk and that speaker would hit the floor.. maybe that's what the strategically placed slipper is for? :)

lol, when I was looking at that setup, I was wondering what man would know the name of their whole setup of furniture, unless it's bought at Ikea. I guess that explains it.


:p I thought the Rosie The Riviter poster would have been the give away. :p

Here is my Work In Progress, using an Asus Eyefinity 6 card. I am running three Dell U2410s and two 1080p projectors. Note that the third monitor is not on because I am waiting for the DP adapter to arrive. Also, this is an extreme work in progress as I am going to make a custom screen for the projectors. I have not even hung the projectors yet and have a lot of work to do in terms of aligning the projectors, calibrating the projectors, mounting the custom screen, etc., so this is an extreme work in progress.

Sorry for the crappy pics, I took these during the day so the screen is a bit washed out and the picture is unfocused too. The picture will look better once the custom screen is built, right now I am toying with different types of blend software for the projectors. Anyway here is the rough, rough, rough version of my gaming system.

UPDATE HERE IS A VIDEO IN 720P!

I guess I'll do a late addition to this thread.



My Setup by mattlach, on Flickr

Using a KVM switch to hook up my work laptop in the docking station, and my gaming/linux rig under the desk.

Its a two year old picture. I'm getting ready to replace my trusty old 2405FPW with something newer and bigger. It was a mammoth of a monitor when I got it in 2005,but much lighter than the 22" 1600x1200 CRT it replaced that died in a puff of smoke, which I got in 2001...

I'm thinking 30" 2560x1600 widescreen, but I'm looking around for something with lower input lag. I'm just concerned I'm going to need a GTX480 SLI setup just to play anything at native resolution on it :p When I first got the 2405fpw I lost interest in games, as almost nothing I had would run well at 1920x1200. I don't want the same experience again with 2560x1600 :p

Zarathustra[H], I see that is a "IBM Modem M13" keyboard. Where did you buy it?

I love my model M :)

I got it on ebay 5 years ago. I love this keyboard, but since it is one of the rarer black models its difficult to get replacement keys for it (I have not found a source yet...

Some of the white lettering is starting to wear off of mine.

Sometimes they show up on http://www.clickykeyboards.com/ as well.

There are probably plenty of other sources for them, but these are th eones I ahve had luck with.

If you don't need the various ports, the Dell 3007WFP has near zero input lag since it has no built in scalar chip. (thats why it has one port and only two native resolutions)

Here is my current home office (previous setup can be found here and the one before that here):

system7.jpg


system8.jpg


system9.jpg


One 24" HP LP2475W on the left (looks really small on those pics, heh?) and two 30" LG W3000H on the right. Currently waiting for the 30" HP ZR30W to become available in Portugal to replace the 24" monitor and finally be able to run Eyefinity at 3 * 2560x1600.

The 30" LG monitors are top notch, but, unfortunately, they only have a single DVI-D input and I need to share one of the three monitors between two PCs, as I currently do with the LP2475W. The HPs also feature a native DisplayPort input, therefore they can be connected directly to my Radeon HD 5870 without the need for active DP to DVI-D adapters.

With the ZR30W monitor I'll also get a Corsair 1200W PSU to replace my current LC Power Arkangel 850W PSU (which, to my dismay, I later found to be actually a 750W PSU), and a Radeon HD 5970 to make a Tri CrossFire setup with the 5870.

After overclocking the 5970 to 5870 speeds, that ought to be enough to run Crysis with decent frame rates on those three 30" monitors at 7680x1600 Eyefinity resolution! ;)

Click on the pictures for their Flickr page + notes (ID of hardware). Was going to have the computer in the second "office" room, but found out I like to have the TV and computer in the same room. Go figure.

And.. since it is in the same room... my HT set up. Think I posted this in a console thread. Again, you can click on the images and see the Flickr page with hardware notes.






Very nice set up. Love how everything looks so clean and simplistic.. What brand/model is that home theatre?

Can't really put a single name to it since I bought all the pieces separately.

Receiver: Onkyo TX-SR608 7.2ch
Front Speaker x2: Polk Audio Monitor 70
Middle Speaker x1: Polk Monitor CS2
Subwoofer: Elemental Design A2-300
Rear Sides x2: Polk Audio Monitor 60
Rears x2: Polk Audio Monitor 40

As you can see I jumped onto the Polk Monitor closeouts :)

If you click on the images, it'll bring up the Flickr page with notes on each component (hover pointer over image on Flickr)

Nice setup mate
Can u give me the blue wallpaper link please???:D

I would if I could, that is winamp visualizer. Which you can put into desktop mode where it replaces your wallpaper. It's very cool.

Looks sweet! Are the 30"s able to do portrait mode?
Unfortunately no. When I get my 3rd, I may go and buy some stands that allow for it. I am planning to do 5x1 Portrait when ever somebody supports it.

Nice, btw is it me or does the screen on the right look slightly lower than the projector screen on the left. Maybe I'm nitpicking. Sick Setup :D
