I have my commonly used flashdrives and xbox reciever on top of my PC

I keep my controller either under the monitor, or next to the xbox (which you will also see)

I have tons of cables under the desk, but it's due to the xbox not being properly set up yet (it's experimental)

My PC has USB ports in an odd place.

The speakers are old, got them for 20 bucks new at Best Buy like 2 years ago (they're really good.)

The thing with the red button is a little light.

Don't post system specs, this isn't a war over who's PC is better, this is about who has a nicer setup :D

Post how many FPS you get in CE (I get around 300)

POST YOUR CE RIG!

Crappy pic taken with dented cell phone lens.

Took this pic and posted to modacity the night I built it just over 2 months ago.

I only use headphones or earbuds occasionally, have have no speakers, since my father sits on my old computer right next to me all the time.

That is a gaming mouse on the side as well, not just some $5 pos. And I love my keyboard. The red you see on the keys is actually light. It's very neat and convenient if youre nocturnal :)

Location is temporary, considering moving into my room and hooking up to old crappy surround sound system in my room. (where i would be using another screen as well, I just have a pos desk that I hate)

I dont even know my fps in CE

watever.

Jesse, was res is your fps tested on? and does that include all other options on high?

Your set up closely resembles mine, except I only have one monitor and your desk is a lot cleaner.

I have been waiting for a thread like this for so long.



This was taken when I was preparing my submissions for the avatar pack.

The far Left is my xbox hardware, the middle 3 monitors are connected to my main rig, and the far right monitor is my dedicated halo/ftp/html/minecraft server.

I'll take a newer picture tomorrow.

Flashdrives above the pc when they're not in use.

2 X360 controllers, 1 wireless with recieved and one wired.

No speakers since i'm fine with earplugs.

I locked my CE fps to 30FPS.

It's nothing special, having my 360 next to it so I can do everything at the same time :3

Turn vsync on, console framerate is unbearable.

My setup is just like this (except it's on a desk, not a wall)^

Doesn't do much but good enough for I do on it.

@Jesse You need to move your 360 the hot air can not get out of the top vent not good!

My screens are 47 inch and 23 inch Lg 3d tvs using autosterio grapic displays. and my video card is a NVidia gtx 560 ti overclocked at 900mhx I have an asus m3a78-t motherboard with phantom 64x quad core. running at 230 MHz per core.140 led psu and 8 gigs of ram. all slamed in to a 5$ crapy pc case I bought of some guy on ebay then I spent 100 moding it added 3 led 80 mm fans and 1 120mm fan in the front. panted it jet black and put carbon fyber all over the front and right side. and cut a window my self and put black smoke acrylic in it instead of plexi. slaped a real gold usmc logo on the front that I got from my moms bf who was in nam.
also have 3 other laptops and another moniter I don't use. and a keybord like banchie64's and the model before this one. eclipse 2.
I must say these are the best keybords ever.
my eclipse 2 lasted me 6 years before I let my gf have it and it still works! =)
I spilled coffey it it 6 times and its easy to take apart and clean and still lights up blue purple and red. and works perfect.
If I just so happen to take a picture it would not do me justice! I will try and get some pictures up soon.
o also have a 360dev kit and slim launch console and 2 xbox1's!
and a 250 wat sony sterio. & 7.1 surround sound system on my pc. 9TB of hdd space full. 3 xbox360 controler's. 1 blue 1 pink 1 black all moded leds.

Side note.
I also build & repair custom computers for gameing for clients.
I have been gone from the community for a bit in witch time I have worked in windows & and windows mobile OS development, programing and Vs Studio and web development.
I worked on Windows phone 7 , 8 and helped bring halo waypoint to devices that didn't support it previously. I am just an artist at hart but I wanted to jump in to the programing side of things for a little bit.

But man does the camera in my phone suck.. If I hadn't just taken those pictures, I would of assumed that was some kind of filter. Whats the freaking point of higher resolution photos if you dont even get the lower resolution details, FFFFFFF. Oh well, its not like I paid for the phone, I got it free because it was broken.

Come on, my cat doesn't care what part of the flesh it rips open, just as long as it can drink blood right from the source. After all, hes a very picky eater; Other meats have been dead too long, he needs fresh blood. but really, those pictures are crappy.. you cant even see the flattened spider graveyards on the walls (Too lazy to scrape them off, plus, Im hoping they can act as a deterrent towards other spiders.. Hasnt worked out that well so far)

Considering I was the last posted pictures, me? (quotes, or names, usually help with these things)

Should be this one. (images are identical, same brand, but I dont have an exact model number.)

The two things near the back in my pictures are external hard drives, as well as a no-name xbox controller on top, etc.

Sure, read my recommendation of having names and edit your post so I look like a fool.

Yes, its one of the afterglow controllers. I don't really use the lights though lol.

It would be a shame to me if I post pictures (my PC is a piece of @#$%=!). And I'm not in home right now.

I'll just say I get like 15-20 fps in Beaver Creek at max settings.

And. . .

I'm liking those cats!

Haha you don't have a cat!
