This is how I play FPS games on my setup,
November 2016 Update
How do you like the TV on top? I'm thinking of doing something similar. Do you use it for tv or consoles at all? I'm worried mine would be too high.
Also, what do you have holding it? Just a basic wall mount?
I need a decent budget friendly monitor arm for a 40" Samsung KU6300, any suggestions?
Just a basic Ebay Chinese wall mount.
But in truth, the TV stays off most of the time, and its only really used when I have guests over. It sits a bit too high to enjoy at the chair, there is a couch behind the chair that is used for more relaxed group viewing. It's mostly for show, not much real use out of it.
Unusual desk - details?
Custom made. 2 pieces of gray melamine board, 60x150 cm each + a lot of metal rods
Do you have more details and photos from when you made it? I'm really interested in the top, the monitor mount setup and wire management.
Sorry, no photos from the actual construction, just a couple of sketches:
The mounts are from Multibrackets - 3 x M VESA Flexarm 360 II; the one for the main monitor is custom made - a 10x10 cm metal plate attached to the horizontal beams.
All the wires stuffed into a box made from a PVC material called "forex". You can see a lot of pics here: https://postimg.org/gallery/iz1v3ft0/
lol, best story ever regarding playing doom.
i've also had visitors because of my dooming, but those were mostly angry neighbors.
Here's mine, not a LCD setup but a TV setup!
Nice man looks like a battlestation , what game are you playing there?
I have the same desk but a different color, where did you get it? I got mine on craigslist so I have no idea where it is from lol
It's Battlefield Hardline. Yes, i live alone so i can arrange my small room just the way i like it, by the way the TV is Panasonic TX-P65VT60y plasma.
I got it from a friend so I can't help you sorry
Here's my latest setup. Need a new desk though.
What monitor is that?
Looks like a Samsung KS8000 series.
that's a glorious looking setup. i'm so tempted to go the 4K tv route. i'm just not sure how much i'd miss g-sync and 144hz. regardless, great looking setup you have there man.
Dual Dell U2410f 1920x1200 monitors. Can't complain. Desk could use a little cleaning so don't just too harshly.
Thanks! It's too late for you to go back to 60Hz. You might as well wait for a 32-38 inch monitor with 120Hz + Gsync or Freesync + HDR + 4k. Enjoy what you have now. I've never played on a 100Hz+ monitor so I don't know any better. Only reason I went the 4K TV route.
Guys with the 43" and 49" TVs.
Could you please post a photo of your display with some icons / forum text on the screen? I'm trying to see how big/small stuff looks on it at 4k before i pull the trigger.
(right now stuff is too small for me on a 34" widescreen Asus - i have to strain my eyes or sit real close)
48" 4k DPI is pretty much identical to 24" 1920x1080. So the 49" is slightly bigger. Then 43" is ~10% smaller... Maybe that helps. I've moved and don't have my 48" set up yet.
i mean you can just make shit bigger with windows dpi scaling setting.
The 43" has the same PPI as 30" 1600p, so icons are slightly larger than your screen (about 10%).
Your 34" has the same PPI as a 40" 4K TV.
If you are having problems reading your screen get the 48" 4K or move your monitor closer.
Get a 49KS8000 and live like a God.
Sent you a PM reply.
Here are a couple of my 49" KS8500 (curved version of KS8000). I think 48" - 50" is the sweet spot for 4K and computer use. I don't scale the DPI at all. I sit closer, but backed away several feet to get the full screen in the pics.
Looking awesome. Thanks.
Time for a new setup: new desk (finished by hand personally!), new TV/monitor, new mechanical keyboard, new mouse - https://i.imgur.com/i80zshi.jpg
There's... nothing there.
I love a clean desktop! It's functionally organized:
Left - system
Up - to-dos
RIght - work related
Center - current work
Seeing this orderly screen every day makes me soooo happy.
We would be happy too if we could see it.
You uploaded your image to a place only you can see it, other people just see a no access symbol.
Oh darn. I must have used a direct link to Google photos, sorry about that. Let's see if this one works, loaded on imgur:
what's that cup?
Metallic coffee mug! I use it to keep water super cold though.
This is my current setup. I've just ordered a 40" Samsung 4K from Costco that I plan to mount to the wall directly above the X34.
just upgraded my 4 year old system to a AOC 34" monitor and RX480 4gb. I can play most games at 3440x1440 at medium quality at least
