Show us your gaming setup: 2018 Edition

What ever happened to Chittagong. His new setup was supposed to be ready last year. Been waiting ages to check it out with the monster screen and genelecs!
 
I need to work on my cable management, but here's my PC gaming setup. GT73VR Titan Pro with a 1080 so I'm not lacking for power in a laptop format ;)



And if I take my laptop off the desk there's a sewing machine that can be raised from below it. I love this desk.



I'll take a picture of my console setup later, it's immediately to the right of my desk, but uh... pretty much most of the view is blocked by boxes of ammo and boxes of gun parts, and full guns and cleaning supplies since I'm building a couple AR15s right now as pieces trickle in and I've been going to the range more so very little gets put away between trips because why bother?
 
Very nice, if you don’t mind me asking, how much did that racing setup cost in total, including PC?
It's hard to get to an exact value in USD. I live in Brazil and I had to import almost half of the parts, so I had to pay a lot of import taxes. In a direct conversion it was around 10k USD, but you would pay half the price if you buy it all in the US.

Not even 5k. You're excluding the Monitors, right?

Well, lets do a quick math here:

Monitors: Dell S2716DG - $550 each
Wheel: OSW Simucube - Small Mige - Fanatec Formula - $1500-2000
PC: 1080ti, i7-4790k, 16gb - $1500-1600 (not counting the overpriced VGAs atm)
All the rest (cockpit set, monitor stand, Fanatec Pedals) - $1000

yep, so around $5500 to $6000 for it all.

Thanks. Very impressive. I am envious.
 
I still want a few upgrades, mostly new and more seats, but I'm happy with my media room that is almost 100% a gaming room.


My parents are professional photographers and hooked me up with framing gaming related posters.





My 7.1 surround was given to me and installed by my father-in-law.



I've had the PlayStation sign since late PS1 days. It lights up, but I rarely have it turned on for obvious reasons.


The media closet is a bit of a mess, but it's great having all the consoles out of sight (and out of range of hearing them). Obviously, this doesn't work when I want to bust out stuff like SNES Classic and PS VR.

The lights from the PS sign doesn't glare the screen?
 
I just finished constructing my game room about a week ago in my new house. The lighting in these pics isn't the greatest, also excuse some of the stuff laying around on the couch/floor. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out! For context the shelves are 8ft long and it took me about 20 hours of work to complete them. Everything is hooked up through a Framemeister to a TCL 4k tv. Not pictured are my handhelds, I still haven't figured out how I want to display them.

I love it! Do you plan on upgrading to a larger TV? Seems a bit small for the distance (though that may just be poorly conveyed for me via the photos).

You're right, it is kind of small for the space. It's a 43 inch tv and I'm sitting about 10 ft away. It worked well in my last game room because the room was smaller and I was only about 5 of 6 feet away. I'll probably be looking for an upgrade later in the year but it works for now.

That's a lot of games lol

I'd never get the time to play 99% of them
Looks cool though
 
Hi guys, this is our setup (my son and I). It's totally built by me. I hope you like it
















That's so awesome. You built the little loft area? Its perfect. Otherwise if it was there it seems a little small for little else. I like the cases the best. A lot of your pictures say unavailable.
Does all the neon make you crazy sometimes?

Thank you. The loft was built specifically for this. I messed up with the photos. Is there any way to edit the post? Thx

You should checkout halo on the Xbox. I think you'd like it

WOW, I'm ultra jealous of that amazing shelf set up, BRUHHHHHHHHHH!
 
Does anyone have any idea on how to make a super minimalistic tv-shelf? I'm going to wallmount the speakers and the only equipment I want to have visible is the Apple TV we own. I was considering to just get a plank of some sort and mount it to the wall.
