I love the lighting, and that keyboard.

Jelly of that portable radio.
Jelly of everything.
Mine is horrible. I need to figure out a way to attach cables along the back of my desk.
You should refinish your desk, also where'd you get that headphone stand?
You need to dust.. and vacuum I can tell. Vacuum first, typically, before dusting.
Very neat, Record player is a nice touch and all.
Get rid of the clutter, my 'motto' or theory is, if you haven't used it this past month, it needs to go into storage. Aka that globe and all the stuff on the shelf.
Nice computer set-up though.
My reaction. I haven't paid attention to mine since I moved my desk around.
I use binder clips to bunch cables together and then put push pins on the back of my desk to sort of set the cables on.
>refinish your desk
It's a barn door that I stained with cherry and coated it with polyurethane. Refinishing it would destroy the look that I love.
>where'd you get that headphone stand?
Built it out of the same wood that I built my desk with.
Hm, well idunno I really do like that desk though. I'm not even saying that cause you made it but it just looks aesthetic.
I'm gunna need you to send me one of those stands though, thanks.
Not him, but I have the same case. For USD$40 it's a pretty we'll made nice case, it's spacious and it'll take full size ATX boards. It has decent cable management features and it's fully painted on the inside in either white or black, depending on version or course. The NZXT 210 elite comes with a USB 3 port on the front, and an extra fan, along with clips for the 3.5" and 5.2" bays, but it's like 10 bucks more
I borrow my mother's MacBook Pro on the weekends and do some gaming at my desk with the external peripherals. I've used my ThinkPad that way at times, but it's kind of a pain so I usually don't bother. If I ever get a newer machine for myself, I'll make more use of the desk setup.
My girlfriend wrote that after we argued and I stormed out of the house a few weeks ago. Just havent bothered erasing.
Also thanks for the advice /g/
Heres a closer look at my main station
I know I need a new desk but my room is also very small so im in a pickle
cozey. pretty dees (decent) all-around excep for faqqy baqqpaqq and overbearing green led's
paint walls not tan. i usually heart a sloping ceiling but this one is making me anqious
get rid of ur silley toys and get hip new wall decor. more led junk ruinin ur eyes prolley
dees. normal. u r gril
scarey normal but it reminds me of my grandmas office room when she used-ta live nearby so in another way endearing. so scarey normal cool tho like in a cool mysterious way
>tv right-the-f*ck over the computer screens
one of my classic pet peeves. u gotta be demented to require all that stimulation. yet-more led trash. it mech-a me angry
o.k. u r obv. 14 this n*gga got manga just on display at any given time wat a pleb. otherwise o.k.
a masterwork of proportion. ergonomics. ever-going-forward progress no-matter the cost. so cozy and simple. truley a simpler time. i dont believe this is ur pic
plain as sh*t thanksgiving-time wood in a scarey sterile room liven it up
yeh get new furniture. refine ur schtao. get rid of ur embarrassing corny-azz green led peripherals too thx
semi-comfey basement room prolly nice n cool down there in the summer. also hope u get direct sunlight if u dont ur a frickin plen. goofy cheezy-azz peripherals again, ridiculous.

so yeah... poor.
It looks only OK on that one monitor, but I normally use a high end CRT and a line doubler.
cause he walked out of my life when i was younger. i work a dead end shit job ( im a roofer) to help pay for me, my mother and little brother to live in a small ass apartment. so yeah my dad bought me an iphone and pays by bill, and usually misses every couple months so im stuck using wifi. jesus /g/ enjoy my life story. just wanted some feedback. my bad..
i'm not even him.
>not knowing the answer to the question asked twice a thread
you can only game on the middle monitor because Windows is shit. Linux does not have this problem.
You might as well get big high res portrait monitors since you can't game on them in PLP
Ditch the filters bro or the lighting as it makes your station look like shit.
Pretty basic. 6/10
Great as always. What kind of work do you do?
step it up senpai 4/10
ps i had a case like the one under your laptop and it was to hold my hookah and stuff when I was younger. #memories
Pretty damn decent anon. I like it 7.5/10
Poker 2 came in today. Ordered a router to fix some network issues. Will post a new pic tomorrow. It's pretty late and i should go to bed soon. Hope you all had a good one.
I ( >>43285400 ) picked up one of these at IKEA, this thing is fucking God sent. I wish it had more Velcro ties, other than that the nail-able cable holders are awesome.
8.5/10 put your desktop somewhere better
6.5/10 nice monitors, shit cases. TV?
9/10 please get a good case and be my favorite
8/10 the Nvidia Asus monitor bump kills me
Great case and audio, shit everything else
Bootiful, install OSX on it
Sorry I was using Windows in the pic, it's a hackintosh.
A lot of this stuff is just personal preference stuff for me. I don't really know what you like or what kind of theme you're going for with your station.
The case is pretty huge and I'm not a fan of it. The desk is pretty ugly, not feeling the lego mouse either. The headphone rack is nice and all but it's displaying pretty ugly headphones (ATH M50's are fine), do all of them need to be on there? The speakers are fairly trash and could definitely purchase some better ones.
However if you plan on keeping the wood desk I would ask those two people with the real wooden desks that have super comfy stations for some advice, as the difference between our stations are too large for me to give like helpful and meaningful advice.
I'm waiting for Yosemite. When it comes out I should have enough time on my hands to take a day and work on it.
Awesome with Yosemite. Since you have the desk space and seem to care about audio, consider grabbing some Micca MB42x's before they realize they can raise the price, get a good amp for them, and have an even better setup
>9/10 please get a good case and be my favorite
I know ;_; it was a hand-me-down from a friend that I got pretty much new for $85 and it's normally $120. I need to find a stealth mode case, maybe for christmas or something.
Not sure what I'd do with the old case, I'd hate throwing it away. What does everyone else do with their old computer cases? I don't want to leave it outside best buy with a "Free computer case sign" or anything because I know some idiot will pick it up thinking it's a full tower and will throw it away or something.
And there's no micro centers around here either.
I go to a university with a lot of gaymen kids so I can almost always turn around old parts in our "Free and For Sale" group. I'd try Craigslist to snag a quick $50>
Go mini if you can. I'm loving my SG10 MicroATX build. It's amazing that I fit dual GTX 670s in such a small rig and have no problems.
The qt is muh gf. The Java book is about four months old and is currently on my shelf next to my C++, Python, and Perl books.
Doooo it, friend. Either that or turn your G5 case into an awesome PC case.
>bro I saw your room on 4chan lol!
>I'm going to post all your info in 4chan now >:)
That's when you punch him.
Not like it matters for anons anyways, why would anyone care if someone posted an anonymous poster's name and address? They wouldn't. Maybe a largely hated tripfag it might matter.
I was thinking more along the lines of someone you've had over that you didn't particularly like, they secretly hated you or some shit. They don't tell you and just post your info to be an asshole.
I'm probably just overly paranoid though.
Got the Model M2 yesterday, and it's great!
Heading of to work soon :/
Posting mine, I know its messy and shit. Currently using my laptop which is behind the second monitor. My phone camera isn't the best at indoor shots (z1).
Shuffled my place around alot since last time, also got some new consoles and a new AVR. and actual bedside tables instead of a laptop screen on the heater
this is nice as well, 7
green, but still nice, 6

g5 power mac or mac pro?
i have the g5
indeed it is
always love this, that marantz
not a fan of the lighting, clearly loved though
almost bought that keyboard today, gonna wait for something with blues though
customised ikea is best ikea
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826991001 I fucking love it, never going back. This desk is ghetto as shit, but it gets things done for what I need at the moment, I would like a deeper desk because the new triple mount has them very close to me now. Also I need to wait a bit longer to get a 3rd monitor, I kinda broke the bank with the new cpu and mobo.
I would use it if I had it, but I am using Strobelight beta 4 if that makes it any better..
Why the shit was 4chanX not updating my tab headers fucking fuck.
Yeah it's a Logishit X540. I've had them for 6 or so years. Almost never use them, and I almost never use my TV either. It's on maybe once every month, if that.
>Why the shit was 4chanX not updating my tab headers fucking fuck.
Because you're using mayhem or ihavenoface, and you haven't changede.detail.newPosts.map(to.prototype.map(e.detail.newPosts,
We've got the same speakers, amp, and keyboard.
>Great as always. What kind of work do you do?
>8/10 the Nvidia Asus monitor bump kills me
Thanks for the great rating.
>not a fan of the lighting, clearly loved though
>Your battlestations are all shit
But don't worry! if you just buy new everything you will slow but surely be on the top again, even though I might change my mind again! You surely know how fast new things become old and outdated these days.
You want to be among the cool kids, right?
I know it's a shit desk, but i'm stuck with it untill i can afford to get a new one
I want an UPS now that thunder season is coming up..
>nice retro hardware
>tfw reel to reel is still in need of repair
feels bad man
It's all I can get without paying double in duty fees, will be picking up a new kb as soon as I go back to the UK.
>Don't need to have it hooked up all the time, no?
not the UPS. the fact that you have all that audio gear stuffed into a corner.
I'm betting you've got a huge resonance at ~200Hz and a very noticeable "honk" between 1 and 2kHz. some acoustic treatment would make a big difference in audio fidelity.
He's clearly got money to spend and doesn't wanna even think about that sort of thing.
To be honest, I don't even believe any CPU from the last 6 years will bottleneck a GPU. I've got an i3-2120 and a 560ti and things run great.
all expensive items but i need a new table.
mech keyboard too and amazing mouse pad.
>He's clearly got money to spend and doesn't wanna even think about that sort of thing.
>having too much money makes it okay to be a retard and not inform yourself about purchases
The comforting part about this is that people like you and him won't be rich for long.
Just finished putting the new monitor-stand together. Station still a bit messy.
Here is my poorfag setup.
Desk: free (found it on the road)
Speakers - Alesis mark 1 active mk2 monitors: £100 used
Samsung monitor: £50 used
Asus monitor: came free with my desktop
Keyboard: came free with my desktop
Desktop: Paid £400 used for an intel i7 3770k with a GTX 660, 16GB RAM, 128GB SSD and 1tb WD caviar green
mouse: some cheap ebay £10 mouse recommended by /g/ sticky
I think I did good guys.
ps- it's not finished yet. I'm writing my dissertation and I need the monitors to be close. I know my speakers should be positioned in a better way for acoustics but I need to buy some clamps.
Sorry for shit quality picture. It was taken on a blackberry I got for free.
First time posting in one of these threads. Be nice; bear in mind I'm a poor student who lives off a tiny grant.
Thanks man. It took a lot of patience to wait for a good deal to appear on gumtree for the desktop. I've been writing all my papers thus far on a shitty 5 year old laptop running Lubuntu so was ecstatic when I got this deal.
It was from a chiense guy who left all the original plastic even on the keyboard so I just gave him all my money as soon as I saw it.
Keep an eye out on your local listings and a good pair of monitors are bound to appear.
Mine aren't ultra-sick production quality but they're fine for me at the moment til I get a job.
View is lovely and this is the best room I've had in years. It's also the cheapest. I'm paying £290 a month which is a steal compared to my direct neighbours who are paying £450 for smaller rooms.
Absolutely loving life.
Apart from the fact I have to write a shitty MSc thesis I have no will to write.
mine is more rough around the edges. it's not a battlestation, just a desk
dunno why but this struck me as funny
>having a friend over, he brings his two other friends
>have muh triple monitor setup with a 27" and two 21.5" on each side in portrait mode
>as we enter my room one of them goes "haha shit, it's a BATTLE STATION! like on FOUR CHAN!"
>they keep asking me about if i sit on 4chan and if i watch anime etc throughout the evening, giggling and mentioning various memes to tease me
>all of this because of my fucking monitor setup
>thinking we have real life friends
>thinking other human beings have seen your room irl
No, AMD's sensor is perfectly fine. Speccy is just a load of shit. I use it because it looks better on the battlestation picture, otherwise HWMonitor all day.
This guy posted in the last thread, if you're here - WHAT DESK DO YOU HAVE I NEED IT
Waiting for the /g/ $1 mouse right now. I wonder how much it will take to ship to europe though.
Alright I'm pretty sure I found it - Anthro Fit Console Desk or something along those lines. It's like $1000+ which is fucking ridiculous. But damn, that desk is perfect. If only it were like $200, I'd get that shit ASAP.
Finally moving into my own place in a new city and looking to build my own custom desk/battlestation. What are the most important components to a good battle station/desk for you gentlemen?
Where do you guys get your desks? My desk is like 40 inches long and 20 inches wide. It also wobbles slightly when I type making me fear it might collapse or some shit. I don't have an ikea near me and office max / depot have either disgusting glass L desks or old ass grandma desks with unnecessary cabinets
Most people just buy a large slab of wood and attach metal legs to them that you buy separately.
Amazon might have a selection of Ready-To-Assemble desks. Probably with free shipping, too.
reviving dead thread?
shit image but you get the deal
Anyone have experience spray painting their monitor? I bought a black one a while ago and have started to change my stations colour to white and would like to buy a second monitor.
Thought it might be possible to just spray paint it all white instead of having to purchase 2 new monitors instead of just one?
>build the desk myself
>monitors are 6 years old
>keyboard is 25 years old
>mouse is 7 years old
>entire guts of the pc are 5 years old
>pc case is 4 years old
am i obsolete yet?
Your keyboard and mouse are pretty much legendary. Does it matter how old they are? Upgrading your computer components might not me a bad idea, but besides that, everything does its job, right? Any setup with a Model M in it gets my thumbs up.
If the monitors are plastic and glossy, you're fucked. If they have a slight texture to them, look into vinyl dye. If they're metal, which I doubt, spray paint would work, otherwise you could go the expensive route and do powder coating.
