Well the whole PC experience encompasses more than just the PC guts. There's your chair, table, table arrangements (maybe a monitor arm, wiring arrangements) and so forth. So I was wondering, what would be your favorite PC related part or detail that changed your computing experience?

My tables. I started with a cheap office-type desk, move to a more suitable $50 computer desk that lasted a surprisingly long time at 6 to 7 years, and now I'm using a two Galants and another Ikea Lack table set up into a L-Shape.

My Alesis M1 Active MK2 speakers on my other setup,

I tested them against a pair of Paradigm M7 floor standing speakers I had and they sounded the same.
I was really impressed with the smaller Alesis speakers. I've had them for over 11 years now.
here is a pic of the M7 so you can see the size of them.

On my newest setup I have to say the 34" Ultrawide monitor, I really love the wide aspect ratio.

My chair, without question.

It's suits me so well, I purchased a second one (still unassembled in the box) for when this one starts to fall apart.

(It's hard to find a chair at the perfect height for your keyboard tray and have the ability to sit Indian-style, which for some odd reason suits me during casual computer usage.)

My wife, so that whenever I sit down at it she can come ask me to do things. That way I'll never get a DVT.

Also my HK3490 and speakers.

"I'm married, so thankfully I'll never develop blood clots." lol

I'll have to remember that one.

That hifi system is beautiful. Wish I had the money to spend on a decent system myself.

For me it's my RAT7 gaming mouse. It's just so comfortable. I had an MX Revolution for years (still have it - it sits on my workstation at work now) and it's just leaps and bounds more comfortable when gaming.

I really like the Herman Miller Mirra chair I have at my computer desk. I had one at my desk at work in a previous job, and after I got sick of what cheap junk most desk chairs are I eventually just sprang for the money to get one at home, and haven't regretted it. It still has its issues, but it also came with a 12-year warranty, complete with actual repairmen that comes to my place to fix it when something breaks.

My trackball: I can't use my PC without it. After that it would be my Herman Miller Embody chair.

I picked up a used Herman Miller chair earlier this year and really like it.
I also added some LED strip lighting to the top of my cubicle, gives a nice ambient feel to the workstation,

Massive desk and the hifi setup.

Have a maelstrom X2-21" sub still to build, along with the 1200W monoblocks plus custom Avel Lindberg toroids. Just need the time to finish those off and it should be good for reproducing a 64' organ pipe @ 10Hz. And no, I don't really have any neighbours..
