Computer e-peen thread, post your fancy PC and desk setup. Mine isn't bleeding edge, built it about a year and a half ago.... and it also needs a good dusting.

Getting rid of the eyefinity for a dell 30" single if I don't like it I switch back to eyefinity but grow wery of some game support it or waiting for 3 party might just end up doing 3 x 30

3x27" at 1920x1080 each. 2x Dell IPS and one shitty HP monitor that I had to use because I couldn't sync up my other 27"
1x27 at 2560x1400

I want to mount the loan monitor above my triple set up, but I don't have the mounts for it right now and don't feel like spending the money.

Did you post your setup at hardforum Draegan? Could have sworn I seen it before with the same Ikea desk / triple monitor with samsung TV on the wall.

Just curious you like the 3 * 1080 vs one big one I just pulled the trigger on zr30w 30" hp at 1600 I beginning to wonder if that was wise choice. Just getting wery of games not optimized for eyefinity/surround plus the ponies it take to run em at even medium eyecandy. As you can see Im pushing 3 x 6970 in trifire not to mention most games are not even close with there trifire optimization so I usally end up using 2 but with a split load..

Triple monitors would be nice for MMO's. I think I'm just too much of an fps whore, getting a true 120 frames per second really does make a difference in twitch games. Even in regular games like Skyrim or Dota 2 it is definitely noticeable. And I still haven't tried the G19 keyboard, do you guys really use the macros often?

Yeah thats all I use it for that and typing rubbish here lcd is nice also. I use the z board and naga for controling my toon..

3 screens in fps is huge as it opens your fov to 180 vs 60 I think that out weighs 120FPS very immersive not as smooth but frist game I played on eyefinity was dead space 2. I had the wet farts from beginning to end.

I've had both, I like trip monitors, but I don't have the cash for the extended resolution monitors like that. I'm not an FPS guy either so I can't comment.

Picture is a few months old, but that is my basic setup. The 2 monitors are both 28" 1900x1200 monitors, bought them a couple years ago before those Korean monitors were really available(or at least before I knew about them). Right now I'm trying to decide whether to add a 3rd of the same I already have, or scrap it all and start over with the awesome Korean monitors(of which I'd probably only be able to buy 2 right off the bat).

The only significant peripheral/accessory I've added to the mix since that picture was taken was a Herman Miller Aeron chair(and I love that sonofabitch...so comfy)

And yeah, the monitor backgrounds arent very exciting, but my only requirement is that the damn things stay dark most of the time, so I tend to go with blacks and blues. Nothing worse than sitting in a dark room with 2 blindingly bright monitors right in your face if you background has a lot of white or bright colors in it.

What's the deal with that monitor on the right? It looks totally strange to me.

And yeah, I agree the screen size is way too big. I couldn't imagine having anything larger than ~30" and even that seems a bit large to me.

Ah, that moment where you realize you aren't a gamer anymore and your rig(s) aren't worth showing off to anyone...
