Here it is.


Coolermaster Cosmos SE case
Monitors are 2x Asus VC279H - 27" IPS.
Keyb + Mouse is CMStorm Devastator (set) + CMStorm mouse mat.
Good old (8+ years) Logitech speakers, came as a 5.1 set but I only use it in 2.1

The system is still running Mint 17.3 and so far it's the best distro I ever used, not planning to change/upgrade until it becomes close to obsolete.

Hey guys!
I'm relatively new on the forum, so excuse me if I'm breaking some forum etiquette;
Anyway, without further ado, here's my battlestation:
CPU: Intel i5 4690K @ 3,9Ghz
Mobo: Asus Z97-A
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB @ 1866mhz
GPU: Asus GTX660-DC2-2GD5

I recently took the dive into Linux, and enjoying it so far.
The distro that I'm currently using is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, with the Unity DE.
The transition from Windows to Linux as a gaming machine has not been an easy one, but I'm learning as I go!

I will attach some pictures later today.

Cheers, Vexation

Cool topic, decided to sticky it. Will look at clearing up mine soon to get a pic in...

In that case, I bid you welcome to GoL and to Linux as a whole, at first may require some effort getting used to Linux but it's well worth it. :-)

I grew up in a family with hoarding tendencies so now I keep everything as clean and minimal as my battle station. No cleanup required.


Specs in profile.

I only have a full ATX tower out of necessity. My heart truly lies with extreme small form factor. Damn you, ARK...

Here's mine. I hope I'm doing this right with the photos. We shall see...


Specs are in my profile as well.

Hamish commented on 2 December 2016 at 10:24 pm UTC

Didn't we do this already a few months back?

Not saying we can't again, just pointing that out.

Liam Dawe commented on 2 December 2016 at 11:38 pm UTC

Nothing wrong with having a regular forum post where people can keep posting them

Xpander commented on 3 December 2016 at 4:11 pm UTC
