Show us your gaming desk setup, here's ours

Posted by , | Views: 60,659
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.

this is my workstation, not just for gaming
the desk is an old wardrobe, I will build a larger desk soon
but since i have the Steam link, i mainly play on the big screen in the living room.

@Sp-lit: Where did you have the arch keyboard from?

AnxiousInfusion... No picture of that yet.

Where did you got that keyboard with the Mint logo? Seems I can only find keyboards with Windows logos for super key.

Study everywhere. And my worn-out old MSI GS70 Stealth laptop with stickers all over it.

Case is a Silverstone Raven RVZ01, runs an ASUS z170 m-itx, i3 Skylake 6100, GTX950, and runs almost all games on high detail at 40 fps or higher.

The i3 is more than adequate for gaming, only notice slowness on parallel compilation due to only 2 dual thread cores.

It's just an expertly matched key replacement. The original keyboard. And I believe the Mint key was bought here.

68key magicforce was replaced by IBM Model M recently.

No windows keys, either!

I see a lot of crammed small desks here. I guess I've been privileged to have such a nice large desk to work at.
Sorry for the potato quality, it's literally the best out of ten my poor old moto G (g1) could do.
