Sitting here sipping away on a couple of Asahis and writing my thesis, thought I'd start up a fun thread getting people to show and talk about their technology setup and what they're browsing GeekZone on.

 

This covers a variety of forum topics so will sit in Off topic for now. Moderators please change to a category you deem more suitable. 

 

You get the chance to flaunt and taunt, admire and applause. Could be your home theater setup, your pc setup, or otherwise. 

 

I'll get us started with my basic student rig.

 

LG 55" UK6700 4K TV with Edifier R2180db speakers. MiniX Neo U9-H android box equipped with Seren + Real Debrid + Sky Go. 

 

Connected to computer so we can play Wii games through Dolphin-emu. Will pick up a couple of cheap PS4 controllers and play all these free Epic Games releases (GTA V + Borderlands) on the big screen.  

 

Marble chessboard for potential battles with visitors. 

 

Computer setup, nothing too extra. Aoc q27p1 27" monitor from a fellow GZer. 
Cooler Master MB400L matx case + Sennheiser HD380 pro headphones (6 years still going strong)
Gigabyte Ga-a320m-s2h motherboard + 16gb G-Skill Ripjaw 2666 ram 
Evga GTX 1060 6gb  + Samsung 970 EVO Plus 250GB M.2

My desk is sorta messy but this is it right now:

 

Click to see full size  Click to see full size

 

I have a converted garage that I call my Mancave. It has a 55" TV, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Xbox 360 (with all the Guitar Hero / Rockband games), Vodafone TV as well as the heart of my networking setup with my NAS, Router, ONT and a UniFi NanoHD with fibre backhaul going into the house where I have another switch along with a UniFi In-Wall HD.

 

Computer setup:
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3800X
Motherboard: MSI X570-A PRO (Only decent motherboard I could find without damn WiFi)
Memory: 64gb (4x 16gb) sticks of G.SKILL Trident Z Series DDR4, 3200MHz ram.
GPU: Nvidia GTX1070 (all I need for now)
SSD: 3x 512GB ADATA SX8200 Pro NVMe drives

 

My displays are just 3x 1080p monitors for now. Will likely upgrade to an ultrawide center screen at some point but does the job well!

My desk is unusually clean as I just got the Dell monitor on Thursday so wanted it clean before I unpacked it. But I’ll probably keep it that way as an uncluttered desk = uncluttered mind imo, and as my office is at home I’m not procrastinating as much.

Computer is an old i7 920, 32gb ram, 256x2 SSD in raid0 and 2xGTX 980

Work laptop is a 2020 MBP maxed out everything apart from 1TB SSD

And for some gore, my comms cupboard. Really need to get short patch cables to tidy it up but my last attempt resulted in being sent 1.5 meter cables not 15cm..

Important piece of my equipment - I too wear a pair of warm, thick Icebreaker merino socks around the house on cold days.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Ahh yes. I classic pair of anti-antistatic Farmlands Backroad gumboot socks. A must for any technological endeavor.

That's a nice desk. Did it come like that or did you build the top and attach?  Thoughts on dyeing the Peace Lily a nice 96 Bullsy red? 'Warriors all day.

I’m a Lakers fan so the 2nd one is a Kobe build, framing my Kobe jersey and ordered a Jordan one (sooo expensive after the last dance aired)

The desk top is from Bunnings 2200x600 from memory, built for under $250 inc drawers, legs and hardware etc

My system pictured. It is slightly overkill since I only use it to play Solitaire.

Wont put pics of mine, because its an absolute mess at the moment.

 

 

 

Lounge : 50" Panasonic plasma, Xbox One, Samsung HTIAB (with digital in so can use for Xbox sound), Freeview DVBS box. 

 

Office : 32" Soniq LCD, PS3, my "desktop" with borrowed 28" screen, Cisco desk phone

 

BR1: Desktop PC with 22" LED

 

BR2: Laptop with 19" LCD

 

BR3 : 42" Panasonic Plasma (dying), media PC.

 

Garage : 22" Viewsonic LCD, Home server, Arcade machine (Undergoing restoration), printer.

 

Garage is main network hub, feeding to Office, BR3, Lounge via gigabit ethernet, Unifi AP's in Lounge and Office giving everything else connectivity.

 

 

 

Pretty much everything is 10+ years old and really needs updating but until I win Lotto, that aint happening. 

 

Just spent my allowance on parts for my Arrma Granite RC truck to get that back on the road.
