About this setup

What is the purpose of your setup?

The purpose is for gaming and for watching movies, TV shows, or youtube videos.

Is there anything you would like to improve in your setup?

The graphics card is going to end up getting upgraded eventually, other than that, all the improvements have been taken care of already. I did a lot of optimizing before I posted it.

Do you switch workspaces during your day? If yes, what’s the reason behind it?

I don't switch up workspaces once I get on this computer, I have a computer at work for CNC programming but that's all it is used for.

Can you tell us something about a special item on your desk that makes your setup different ?

The Stoneforge Mystic MTG playmat is a memento from when I played Magic: The Gathering, it functions as a mousepad/desk protector and has some great artwork on it.

Why did you use a giant TV screen above?

The TV is so I can have a video on above me if I am playing a game, or so I can watch a movie from the comfort of my chair. I consume a lot of video through either twitch, youtube, netflix, amazon, etc, so it made sense to me to have a dedicated screen for that. I also can play any of the strategy games that aren't FPS and refresh rate dependent on it pretty easily.
