Show us your gaming desk setup, here's ours

Posted by , | Views: 58,970
Today I thought it would be fun to show you what myself and Samsai have setup for our desks and gaming setups, and see what yours are too.

Here is my little bit of heaven, what I regularly use for all GOL work and livestreaming
Proudly still using my Linux Voice mug.

The corner when my desk sits is also quite dark, I really do need to look into a lamp as it's hurting my eyes more and more.

I'm starting to feel like my desk just isn't big enough. The pull-out tray for my keyboard and mouse certainly isn't, and I don't want them on the top of the desk as it's too high and would take up too much room. Looks like in a few months I will need to look into my desk situation again. This desk also isn't big enough to host my tower unit, as it's rather large.

Then there's also my Steam Machine situation
I do need a smaller case for my Steam Machine, but it also hosts other systems so it has a number of hard drives in it, plus the size of the Nvidia 970 inside has been a problem.

Here is the setup Samsai uses for his weekly GOL livestream, articles and GOL Cast videos. The Coca Cola glass is an integral part of the setup.

Sobkas who usually does our Wine posts, some excellent Penguin graphics for us and more.

Not really a gaming setup but here it is


My cat refused to move so yeah.. it's in the picture now too

I especially like the fact that my keyboard has no Windows buttons
It's the little things in life ;)

I still need to clean my desk area so I can actually take presentable pictures of it.

It's a bit late here so the lights are not too good, but I know that tomorrow I'd probably forget to take a picture (or I'll be too lazy) ;)

Me, I have an IBM Model M, build in 1987. You can pry it from my cold, dead hands.

And yes, I could use a new desk. That thing is over 20 years old now.
