That's a Corsair Graphite 600T right? Are the fans in it any good and is it fairly spacious?

Thanks!

As for the PC, right now I dont but because it is an MSI gx620 from 2009. The lcd broke but I can still game on it. Soon, I would like to buy something new to play pc games on, so then I will most likely need to figure out another solution or add a fan to the cabinet.

I haven't had any problems with the fans. They're fairly quiet and the case stays cool. It's spacious enough. If you put a third video card in it might be uncomfortably close to the power supply but with two GTX 670s space hasn't been an issue.

His territory is any comfortable material that's on the ground.

I thought this might be a good thread to ask, are there good media shelves that also have maybe a glass front or something that can block dust while still showing what's in them? Something nice but minimalist maybe? I'm tired of dusting while trying to be nice to the cardboard boxes anyways, and would like a way to keep them displayed while keeping the dusting down.

Man some of guys have some really nice looking setups but I find myself more envious of your actual homes, like the OP, Tabris. I've always imagined having a home overlooking the skyline a some city with large glass panels so you can just...just see life. Very jealous right now. Damn thats my motivation to hurry and finish school, get this degree and save! But yea, nice setups everyone

finally, my main gaming setup.

As i told you, there ain't much to see at all, since consoles and collections are hidden (thank God for wireless controllers)








oh, yes, the room desperately needs curtains and a carpet.
And something on the wall behind the sofa.
Old ass Sony 720p 50" rptv (doesn't even fit) soon to be replaced with a Pana 50GT50
Marantz 6004
B&W 684
hidden there are a X360, a PS3, a Raspberry Pi used as media center and an old xbox1.

would post pics of my PC setup and retro setup (with psone, ps2, gamecube, dreamcast, another xbox1 all happily connected to a switcher and CRT) but it's an unfinished mess right now.
Yes, living room is also not finished, we just moved here a few months ago.

Not sure if this thread is inspiring or depressing...

I still have the same setup from 2011...ugh

copy/paste :-/

2011 Setup

Projector: JVC DLA-RS40 the 3D emitter sits atop the projector:



Screen in enclosure also visible is the sole sound source a Definitive Technology SSA-50 soundbar:



SeymourAV CenterStage XD (acoustically transparent screen): [There are no waves visible when an image is projected and while I'm confident I could change the tab tensioning to get rid of what little there is...I'm lazy.]




Components and rack:



Screen with an image:




2nd EDIT: I mentioned this in the Sony CES thread but I'm looking at upgrading the screen to a much larger size, 4k, and still acoustically transparent. Looking into a slew of other projectors now as well from the newer 4k projectors down to a pure gaming projector as well...I saw Runco has a stacked 3D option but I'll probably wait until some of this stuff hits the market or for 2nd gen projectors for what I'm looking at because the RS40 and its lamp drama...don't feel like dealing with something like that again.

Bothers the hell out of me too, but I can't find a better solution ATM.
At least they are the same distance from where I always sit/lay...

Man, looking at pictures of your house you really notice a lot of things you normally don't.
This room needs a lot of work.
And a different floor, but that will have to wait, a carpet would do for now.

I don't know. I'm from the UK.
The rug is just a centre piece for the room really as it ties everything together and sort of separates the kitchen and dining area from the lounge. It would look a bit plain and cold with the regular carpet across the entire room.

Firstly, sorry about the crappy shots, the Nexus 4 has a terrible low light camera. Also, my living room is pretty sparse at the moment as my ex-girlfriend just moved out and took a lot of her stuff with her :P

But this is my living room in my tiny one bedroom apartment.

PC and games in one corner.


Consoles (360, PS3, WiiU) gigabit switch and TV in the other.


I also have a file server, but that's sat in the kitchen :P

There's a couple of sofas and stuff in the other corner of the room. Nothing too exciting. :)

We are where we are in life, it is neither bad nor good it is simply where we are. How one chooses to look at that is up to them. There are more than a handful of people who have setups that they are clearly happy with. Where each of us chooses to divert our money should only be of concern to us. I'm positive that PC gamers spend more on their boxes than I spent on my screen and probably more on their boxes over the past two years than I spend on my projector and screen combined. Does that make either of "us" wrong or right...we like what we like.

People can get manual >100in (wide) screens + short throw projector for less than $1000 USD.

Should those of us who like where we live and the stuff we have hate it...that would seem to make no sense?

I'm always interested in chopping it up with other projector owners. Are you planning to buy a native 4K spec projector (like the VW1000) or the 4K Lite tech from JVC?

How large is the screen you have right now?

Have you demoed any projectors recently?

This thread reminds me that I need to stop being lazy and take a few pictures...

As we already said in the threads from previous years, many of us started out small and just added nice things bit by bit.
A few years ago I had none of the nice things I have today. I saved up and bought new furniture and things bit by bit, always planning ahead what I want to purchase next. Then as time passes your home becomes nicer and nicer and everything just fits into place. :)

Spent the morning converting my little Man-Cave closet into a space dedicated to playing Wii VC on an old CRT. Currently have a Japanese Wii set up there. Moved the saturn to the HDTV since I went RGB with that. I've also got a DC wired in and a Supergun for some horizontal arcade boards (of which I really don't have any but thinking I might get a nice Capcom fighting board or something).

Entrance:



A bit of storage and stuff but also some systems to hook up if needed:



And playing classic games, heaven!

I know the feeling. Literally none of my IRL friends are into games, so it feels like my setup's going to waste in a way... oh well.

Pioneer 42" 720p Plasma and the game I'm playing at the moment:



IKEA BESTA cabinets storing my collection:



ASUS G51J Republic of Gamers laptop, and my Numark Total Control mixer:

No offense taken at all. I don't have a lot of expendable income but I can afford to spend a bit. I paid off my mortgage on my house 3 years ago, no payments on my car, no credit card debt, and I have a steady decent paying job. Really, if you look at my setup compared to a lot of people here, my setup would be considered the poor man's setup. Some people's games collection alone is worth more than everything in my room.

Whelp, finally found a house in France and it's somehow larger than the one we have here in the States. So I should have a sizable room in which to build my new setup. I'll be keeping an eye on this sort of thread for ideas.

Looking forward to starting something new even though I adore my current setup. This time I will be able to fit everything into a single space rather than dividing it up so there's always that.

All that black is imposing! Especially the cabinets with the games.

Stick some plants in there, the green and the hardwood floors will make your place awesome. :)

Wanted to suggest the same @djtiesto. A few plants and lamps will finish the room. Maybe something on the wall? I love the rest, looks clean and minimalistic, great game collection as well.

Slightly offtopic: my tv has a glass screen so pictures usually have lots of glare. How can I reduce glare?

Why no 5.1 or 7.1 setup visible? Seems like your setup would benefit, and it would fit in the room.

Thanks for the comments - yeah I haven't really gotten around to decorating yet, I'd like a few pictures (probably framed prints of Kandinsky or other abstract impressionists) and definitely some plants. I only very recently moved in (like, 2 months ago) and still not completely unpacked yet!

I'm in a townhouse surrounded on both sides by empty-nesters.. so I'm a bit worried as far as getting a 7.1 setup. Even though I'm a huuuuge music fan, I've never felt a surround setup would be too necessary but maybe one day soon (when I have a bit more moolah).

This. Maybe it's just my room, but dust gets everywhere so quickly.

This thread also reminds me that I really need to get some shelves. I might ditch my second desk and get:

&
http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/pr...192/#/70138400

Although this would require moving my mounted TV, which I've actually wanted to do for a while.

I like your setup. Do you have extension cords for your controllers on your retro consoles? Back in the day those NES controllers (for instance) didn't have very long cords... the original controller cords certainly wouldn't reach to your couch.

Totally know what you mean. Funnily in our last house didn't have too much of a problem with dust due to having carpeted floors and curtains but moved into a house with hardwood floors and venetian blinds throughout and even an hour after putting the vacuum round dust is clearly noticeable and we don't have any pets. Glass furniture and gloss black electronics doesn't help either.
