While my displays haven't changed much in the 1.5 years since my last post, my desk and walls have.

Yeah, that's a 5.1 surround system located entirely on my desk. lol.
Anyway, got a new mouse, keyboard and desk mat since my last update, moved the PC from the floor to ontop of the desk, that crazy bundle of stuff you see to the left is a network switch, a Nintendo switch dock, a capture card and all the dongles necessary to have the switch output at 1440p via mclassic and also connect to ethernet. Sometimes this area is also taken up by other consoles.
Also pretty fucking happy with my poster selection, some of which you can see in this photo.

Backgrounds are still a randomly rotating set of Pokemon with a possibility of every single Pokemon, (including alt, mega and gigantamax forms).

Also Majora's Mask is watching.
Always.
Always watching.

In the top left you see my 508mm window exhaust fan. ;)
Lol my 5.1 is on my desk also. Last time we remodeled the house & painted the interior I didn't want to deal with doing a full clean wiring of all the speakers etc but it sounds actually good on the desk it blasts your face with all the sound haha

My office is finally done. I still need to clean it, but it only took 20 years to finally get something that fit.

To give you an idea, this is my chair (Maxnomic XL) compared to my old chair, which was your generic Amazon Big & Tall Executive Chair.

Haven’t posted my setup in a while. It’s pretty clean I think! My main gaming pc is in the closet behind the wall my desk sits on

Setup is a CX 48" OLED in the middle on a pole mount so it can sit as far back as possible. 27" LG G-sync 1440p 144hz monitors on either side on monitor arms.

Desk is an Ikea Gerton top finished in a few coats of polyurethane on a monoprice single motor sit/stand desk

Oh look who finally upgraded from 21.5 Dell U2211 60hz monitors... after 10yrs~ (don't remember I think I've had these since 2011.) blah blah found these for pretty good price $239ea on amazon last week ViewSonic XG2705-2K 27" 1440P 144hz monitors. for the money I'm quite pleased so far.. my 1st monitor I bought was a ViewSonic haven't bought one of their monitors since about 1999~ I guess (it was a 17" CRT as I recall?). Since video cards are basically impossible to buy and I have a RX580 I didn't want to go higher res than this right now ?? whatever price was nice and gaming at 144hz has been rather nice change .. don't want to go bigger as I'm not getting rid of any of my speakers =P but yes welcome me to 2016~ or so I guess (no idea.. you get the joke I am aware these are not the very cutting edge but whatever?).

Also Yes the protective film is still on these waiting a day or so incase of "issues" making me want to return one or both... so far so good however. built in speakers suck less than I figured they would also btw.

HW Race Day Volvo 850 Estate (2/10) ... I drove a volvo wagon for many years in College and afterwards (about a decade of volvo wagon driving.. car had 245,000 miles on it when I sold it) .. as I recall they had a display of HW at the Von's and I placed it in the cart over my wife's objections =p I mostly got it because I still have a soft spot for Volvo Wagon's / Estate's ...

Epic car. Volvo raced one for one year only in the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) in 1994, nicknamed the Battle Tank. At that time the rules were no aero packages so the station wagon was almost as fast as the sedan, but it made for better advertising to help try and shed the staid Volvo image from the late 80's/early 90's. The following year the rules were changed so they switched to the sedan, a damn shame!

Asus VG35VQ

$370 on Black Friday from Newegg... the jump from 25 in 1080p ultra wide to this (1440p) has been mind blowing. Some of the best money I ever spent on my computer.
Nice buy! I have been rocking a 27"1440p 144Hz for the last 5 years, but it's an IPS panel and I'm not sure if I want to go back to VA - unfortunately IPS ultrawides are still too pricey for me :(

I haven’t noticed any ghosting, but I’m also not the guy playing stuff at 120 FPS as I’m still on a Vega 64... for me this is probably it til OLED

How's the image quality?

Does the aspect ratio cause any problems?

Image quality is great, way better than my old TN panel. Colors are bright and vivid—ignore the online “expert” that advises you to put it in race mode (he must be colorblind). I’ve been playing a lot of Hades recently (kind of a devil may cry meets symphony of the night roguelike) with zero ghosting or tearing issues.

The Aspect ratio has given me no problems whatsoever. If you play MOBAs it might take a second to get used to the added real estate, and I had to relearn where to sit in front of the screen so I can see it all at once, but nothing I’ve played had problems. I’m not sure I would ever go back to 16:9. Productivity is nice too with being able to have two full windows open (one snapped to each side of the screen).

Hope this helps!

Yeah, I love ultrawide. Used to run triple monitors, and that was great, but I get close to that experience with a single ultrawide.

VA is okay. I personally use IPS now, but I've owned a few VA monitors and they are fine (definitely better than TN). The thing with VA is that still images are superior to anything (except maybe OLED, but not like you can buy OLED monitors anyhow).

The colors, the contrast, the "pop", VA looks amazing. However, the ghosting and trailing in motion can be an issue depending on the panel. I'd say it's still acceptable, and still worth it if you can't afford an IPS.

Thanks!

I'm pretty happy with what I have - looking at the VG35VQ I am thinking I could be pretty happy with 2 or 3 of those as well. It could save me some pace too by sitting closer to the desk.

new setup
Very nice!

I'd love monitors like that on my work desk. When at the office I would have 1 of 2 in portrait, just don't have the correct monitor stands to do that at home.

What stands are you using? How did you manage this nifty trick?

I thought I had uploaded a new picture but I didn't, forth monitor was added about a month after 3rd one. Don't really need 4 but good just in case I do 😆
Mainly for Emulation (Retrobat) or Xbox on bottom Monitor, youtube (or other video) on top, torrents on left, and general browsing on right.

Posted my last set up here a while ago, upgraded to a triple 27" 165hz setup for about six months, then finally pulled the trigger on the 49" Odyssey G9. What an amazing monitor, and no issues (flickering/ghosting, black levels) as of yet. About two months in of ownership.

I really want to get the g9 or g9 neo but that price tag is painful. They look so awesome and immersive. What I wanted my 3 1080p monitor setup to be in college.

Finished this a few months ago. I originally had a secondary monitor for media and system monitoring. I ultimately decided that I prefer the simplicity of a single screen...

I was not even shopping for a new monitor, i needed a new phone and went thru Samsung direct. The G9 was on sale for 999.00 and they offered 0% financing for two years, so i said fuck it you only live once. now i need a new GPU to really flex it as the 2070TI is struggling....waiting for the 3080ti to come down a little more before i pull the trigger on that.

Single screen definitely is superior. Those white Metas look great, too!

How do those JBL's sound?
Great if I don't have a monitor in front of them (gonna mount them over the monitors once I get wall mounts in, didn't have issues before the 3rd monitor). The are prone to ground loops, main issue with the speakers, so you need to isolate the power source.

I have a 15 inch touch screen that I found at work and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on what I could do with it? I was thinking of using it for some sort of jukebox or for simple games. I use retrobat and still haven't looked into integrating into retrobat. Would be cool for touch games or ds/3ds games etc.... I don't really want to remove any monitors I have now so space will be cramped :( but I could mount it underneath and swing it up next to my keyboard so I can "touch" it. Or mount it inside the desk (cut hole + insert LOL).
