I just want get off my trash mobo, i have a z220cmt that's been HEAVILY modified but i'm still stuck with the original hp mobo, which is both old and also buggy :-(
If you play counter strike, isn't the dot exactly in between the screens? So wouldn't you want to add another screen in them middle?
one word, excessive.
The lighting behind the monitor is ambient light that matches whatever is on the main monitor. I would also like to point out my brand new Sennheiser HD 6XX’s hanging from the mic stand.

If you need that view, don't you need VR?

Think I want to consolidate and go triple 43" 4K instead of single 43"/single 30" 1600p/7x 24" 1200p.

Added the latest Vast drop to my setup:

Ryzen 7 1700X, Vega 56, ASUS Prime X370 Pro, Samsung 960 Evo NVMe, Micron 1100 2TB SSD, some WiFi/BT card that I can't remember the name of (I think it's a Gigabyte), WD Black 2TB, Seasonic Prime 850w, and a mostly-XSPC custom loop.
I definitely need a new chair... but I'm cheap.

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:

Haha for sure. I took that pic not long after adding new displays and other stuff, cable management has improved but is always a work in progress.

I'll share my setup here soon just finishing buying the parts to my first expensive build!
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.

I just like keyboards. I collect keycaps. They feel different.
TheNest
Interesting hobby. Love the looks.
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.

that looks really cool, its a shame i can't do that seeing the desk i currently use barely has enough room for my legs and my desktop dwarfs the size of the desktop mount (it just keeps it above ground level really) but it did come with the room so i can't complain there
B.Hutch@AKRacing
@B.Hutch what are you using to manage your displays and wallpaper/screensaver? I've been having some issues with DisplayFusion lately.
nice I play csgo as well
I don't have a set up so I came on this site to find a 100$ set up any help??

try craigslist
MR_3D
$100 will be really really hard but it’s possible, try craigslist or eBay and if u don’t find anything for ur budget use Craigslist or eBay to make a list of pc parts that for $100 that outperform $100 MSRP but again, it will be very very very difficult
