    This is my computer nook.

    After seven years away from PC gaming (and losing my [H] login), I set this space up to catch up on all of the titles I've missed. Starting Witcher 3 today.

    The screen is an Asus ROG Swift PG348Q mounted on an Ergotron MX arm. It's driven by a 7700K at 4.9 and a 1080ti Strix OC edition.

    Moved in with my girlfriend. Here's our temporary setup while we figure out how to merge all our crap together, lol.

    My rig is on the left, hers is on the right:

    Updated my setup from three U3011s to a single 4k Sony 49 inch TV.

    Also replaced my logitech Z5500s for the SVS prime Satellite 2.1 speakers and an Onkyo stereo receiver.

    She's got a setup like that? You had better put a ring on that.

    My setup is almost complete. Snagged me a Samsung UN43KU7500. Just need comfortable fat guy chair, and I should be all set.

    This is what happens when I get bored and have too much time and equipment on my hands:

    [​IMG]nine_monitors, on Flickr

    All the monitors are hooked up to my main workstation, the 2x2 on the left are also plugged into my work laptop for when I work from home, the 30" on the right is hooked up to my personal laptop as well. The M92z on the far right is used only in monitor mode.

    I may finally have gone too far, even I haven't figured out what to do with this many monitors on 1 workstation.

    Oh well, you never know your limits until you surpass them :)

    Can you use the touch screen to zoom in on the large monitor (I assume those displays are cloned)? If not, what's the purpose of the touch screen.
    the keyboard reminds me of the one that I had with my 386.

    Wow, that pic's actually pretty outdated. Here's a newer photo.

    [​IMG]

    As you can see, I'm no longer using an IBM Model M, not because I didn't like it, but because Model M15 split keyboards are rather rare and expensive. I needed a split keyboard for the setup you see now, though I'm still working out alternate placements and suitable mounting solutions.

    First off, that's no ordinary touchscreen. It's a Wacom Cintiq Companion Hybrid (think 13HD touch with the bonus of Android tablet functionality and a beefy battery). In other words, it's a canvas for digital artwork, of the sort that most artists wish they could afford due to ridiculous Wacom price margins. Yes, it has capacitive multi-touch in addition to the typical Wacom EMR pen digitizer, so pinch-to-zoom is pretty trivial.

    There's actually a secondary, non-art role that it fulfills from time to time because of the added touch functionality (most Cintiq models don't respond to finger input at all), and that's running Helios.

    It's basically virtual control panel software pitched specifically at flight sim enthusiasts, and makes playing stuff like Falcon BMS or DCS a hell of a lot easier when you don't have to fumble around in a virtual cockpit. Ironically, though, I don't use it as much like that because it's impractical to use with an Oculus Rift on my face, and flight simming in VR is so much better than without it. TrackIR + monitor feels so damn unimmersive by comparison. Too bad Falcon BMS doesn't support VR in any real capacity right now, otherwise I'd be playing it a heck of a lot more.

    I don't remember. It wasn't very expensive, maybe $130. Was some off-brand one my dad bought for me.
    I'll check and see if I see any names stamped on it.

    Cool let me know if you find any info. Specially if it was around $130 looks decent for that price range.

    It's the good 'old BGMicro 2x20 VFD that went on sale a long time back, running VFD Thinger that was written by a HardForum member :)
    Use it as a clock + news + WinAmp display

    Here's an old thread :

    Swooped on a crazy low priced LG 34" 1080p 144hz ips on the right a few days ago for smoother gaming. Was a no brainer at the time, and I'm loving it now. IMG_20171130_160845742.jpg

    Was that the $215 one on Amazon? I was tempted to get it since it was a great deal.
