I was trying to find some pictures of the other users computers to compare to mine.
I notice alot of people say what spec their computers are in their signature but it doesnt count if your 51 1TB harddrives are all lying on the un-used side of your queen sized bed.

Do you have a titanium telescopic multi level pneumatic screen array that hold 84 dell 36 inch lcds?
Is your home theater PC also a fish tank?

Please post the pics of your PC in here for us to "gander" at.


here is mine

Nope, thats damn nice compared to my home setup :-p

I liiterally ripped a hole in the base of my case and stuck a couple of bits of wood underneath to raise it up.... why ?
So the fan in my 2nd video card wouldnt catch on the bottom of the case.

I'll get pics up here when I get home :)

That would be my wifes 3rd generation advanced water engaging unit she uses for her new computer game sim-Barista. And i use liquid nitrogen to cool that bad boy and run it a 7.3ghz.

thanks for asking

No, I just came across that article when reading lifehacker earlier, there's a link to a gallery with hundreds of workstation setups that is interesting to browse.

That's my beloved PIII. It may not look like much, but it beat quite a few P4s in it's time. It was also the base for my home security system and was also hooked up with a telephone line, so I was able to control the PC/check the security/turn on-off devices all from any phone :)

 

Also created an external storage box with an array of three HDDs. The cool part was the LEDs: a set of green and reds for each drive. As you might have guessed, the red LED of a particular set would glow when something's been written to, and the green one glowed when something's been read from that drive. The insides of the box is lined with foil, so the light bounces off the walls and the whole box glows. The lights were software driven, connected via the parallel port.



 

 

Before you can ask, nah I'm not using the P3 currently, although I would love to.

"Upgraded" to one of those run-off-the-mill Sony Vaios in Jan this year. :/

Obviously this was a little too suble, please post your desk's and desktops at the mentioned threads.
There is no need for a duplicate thread to carry on, hence this will be locked.
