Given how much effort some PC and console gamers put into their setups, here's a thread for you to post your own.

Here's mine - I just moved house and was so stoked to see a network outlet right there so I hooked up an 8 port switch and went with maximising my fibre Internet connection. I'm renting but landlord said I could mount my TV.

I'm amazed yours looks so white. My keyboards from the 286/386 era are all yellow and gross now. That, and I don't think any of my devices now have the old school PS/2 or serial port to use them on.

I do miss the nice gap between CTRL and ALT and the simplicity it offered classic games like Commander Keen!

Posting here to remind myself to post in 2 weeks when all my parts for my new gaming rig arrive and will be assembled and posted when the time is ripe (first time FULLY assembling everything by myself and some online guides - I had previously only helped assemble a gaming rig)

What kind of stuff did you order Chronost?

Would you actually want the tablet or would you be better off with an Android TV box?

Gee that's a lot of fans especially when your GPU comes with decent cooling itself.

Surprised that can run 1440p with ultra settings! What kind of games are we talking about here?

Good cabling management also

We only have space for one TV at home unfortunately, and my parents like to hog that.

My android games basically don't require too much input in certain things , it's more that it needs to run on hours on end with auto grind, and whilst my phone is putting up a good job, I'm worried the constant pressure and overheating will cause a problem soon enough.

most modern games i usually have to run on high, havent played much recently but it can run fallout 4 on ultra rarely falling below 30fps
really cant hear the fans unless you put your ear up to it tho, id rather have a silent build than something flashy with a window and stuff that i can hear at my desk

Ahh yeah, that's still pretty good then!

I mean like the stock fans seem pretty decent with the case, I would maybe replace rear and bottom for a quieter case, but I understand if you want a truly silent computer.
