What's your next addition?

We showed you Brian's battle station in his profile and have a few more from around the office below:


Let us know in the comments below what you are looking to add to your battle station next with a picture of your current setup.

Don't mind the messy wiring ;) WIP.

My Arozzi desk + Ikea at present. I also have the Velocita Simulator but that's going to be in a different room once I get it setup for racing/flight sims. IKEA Gerton table with adjustable legs "floating" over the back of my Arozzi desk (each display mounted using an Amazon Single Monitor Stand arm). Front legs mounted back a bit to allow for the "floating" effect over the Arozzi.

This setup gives me more depth than the Arozzi by itself and allows me to have full view of the wide displays. The picture is deceiving... when you are setting at the desk you have a broad wrap of displays.
Note the edge of the Arozzi desk. I purchased the "table edge protective foam" padding from Amazon and ran it the length of the front of the desk. Makes it very comfortable to rest my arms on the edge. Highly recommend this mod.

Center display: Acer 38” UltraWide QHD (3840 x 1600)

Left/Right displays: 2x Samsung UN40MU7000 40-Inch 4K LED TVs (3840 x 2160)
Misc other stuff:
Klipsch HD 1000 surround speakers (5x), Klipsch 12" sub, Denon AVR2300CI receiver, etc etc.)
PC is a custom built water cooled setup (tower and external dual 240mm fan cooled radiator in a custom aluminum enclosure, runs silent).

Left side of pic but obsured is my Synology 3615xs NAS (96TB), Dell PowerEdge T430 dual 10 core XEON server, Triplite 3000 UPS, MFG Crosswind Rudder Pedals, Thrustmaster HOTAS, etc etc. Lots of misc stuff floating around.

Old setup:
I had a much broader setup in the old house but had to move last minute to provide full time care for my father. Planning to move back to Austin and will be putting together a new setup then.
3x 42" Samsung 1080p displays in surround mode (so 5760x1080p. I still have the displays and will be pairing them in a dedicated racing/flight setup with my Arozzi Simulator:


I work as a concept artist part time, and as a production editor the other part time... Finally got the new machine after my old work laptop died (utter potato), and I've got to say, I don't think I can ever go back.
All but one monitor is handmedown though, and the tablet was a gift. Nice builds don't have to cost as much as a new car!

Simple specs rundown:
GTX 1070 8gb, 3 1080p panels, 16gb ddr4, and a brand new ryzen 7 1700 chip. Absolutely wonderful. More power than I will ever need, but it was so worth it.


I work with the side panel off a lot cuz renders get toasty.
I personally refurbished the razer headphones, which I got for free (since they were totally broken). Keyboard is new, but the mouse is some fakey rgb thing off amazon. Works fine though. Tablet is an h610 pro from hiuon.

I think the only upgrade i'd really want is a water loop, since the fans are honestly kind of loud. But I have no room for even the tiniest pumps in my case, so it's out of the question unless I get an AIO, which I don't want. I'm honestly pretty damn happy with everything right now.

An actual working pc
What do you do for a living?
why do you say that?
I'm waiting on a new 78" custom reclaimed wood desktop that I've ordered.. should arrive in a few weeks. next piece of tech though, I'd like to get a new set of headphones and a Lyr 2 amplifier.

Very clean. I like
If only these mounts didn't cost an arm+leg simply because "gas piston" armature.

Ergotech is the prime exploitee in that regard, quality be damned it's 2017 and they're selling arms from 2010 at retail...their drops aren't that much better ($60 off of $299...I hope a chinese company rips their designs and sells them at 1/10th the price)
My next addition is upgrading my 3 720p 60hz monitors to an Asus Predator X35. Will post pics of how everything looks when I get home.. which is in like 2 months
I plan on mounting a nice mic, replacing the sound blaster z mic I already have.
