Does this count..?


^ My uh... "Very professional" temporary setup for digital drawing, while in my current quarters.

How about this. Any better?


^ My previous setup, before moving.

And here is the actual case, which is currently sitting on an Anheuser-Busch crate in the middle-ish of the floor, and is hooked to a TV, with my only chair being a bed.
Exciting, I know.



My gaming rig has kinda died, for now, heh.

- Specs - (not nearly as impressive or interesting as yours, really)
- Case: Cooler Master HAF 912
- MoBo: MSI 990FXA-GD65V2
- CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition (Deneb)
- RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 12GB (3 x 4GB) 1600
- GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 (1GB 128bit GDDR5)
- PSU: Corsair CX500
- Mouse: Razer Deathadder 2013(? I think)
- Keyboard: An aging, slowly dying Razer Lycosa (Nice keyboard. Slightly buggy after a while. Wearing down finally. Still refuses to die)

Not really happy with the motherboard, CPU, Ram, Case, and PSU. Will be updated probably next year. Not really thinking about replacing the 980ti yet though
(The mac keyboard is only there to wake the iMac, I'm running synergy to use the Cooler Master master key Pro S and G502 for both) Really need to haul it apart for a good cleaning sometime soon. Looking to add 3 things to it. Zowie Comade Mouse bungee, Final Mouse ScreaM One, Hyper X Cloud II headset, and a Asus PG258Q monitor (240 refresh rate, G-sync, 24.5" TN, 1ms response time panel). Would like to get a monitor arm to be able to move both the Ultrawide and the Asus monitor around to have whichever one I'm using centered like the LG is now, just move them around (Ultrawide to the left behind the mac and the Asus to the right.)

Specs:
PC
-i5 6500 (With stock shit cooler, only hits 60C at max under Aida64, so I lucked out and nothing extra really needed, also looking to change the CPU)
-16gb of DDR3
-G1 Gaming 980ti from Gigabyte
-600b PSU from EVGA
-Corsair 350D case
-WD Blue 3tb hard Drive & a 120gb 850 EVO SSD from Samsung
-LG 29UC88-B
-Steel Series QCK XXL
-Logitech G502
-Cooler Master Master Key Pro S With Cherry Browns (Also have a CM Storm quickfire TK with Cherry blues)
-Logitech C920 and Blue Snowball for streaming
-Netduma Router

iMac
-it's a shitty iMac that only gets used for logic and twitch. Literally nothing else, but it mainly plays twitch 24/7. Don't buy one. Overpriced and actually do slow down if you use them for more than one purpose, impossible to upgrade (effectively)

Bose Speakers. I hate them, but don't have the room on my desk to get the monitors I'd like to have, trying to work around that to make it happen.

PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox one S.

Internet speed is 308 Mbps down and 112 Mbps up

My pc rig is pretty tame.

Lenovo all in one touchscreen pc with an added Samsung monitor. 8GB memory, 500GB SSD, 4TB HDD.
Its connected to my hifi for sound, a projector (via a usb-vga cable) for movies, a Native Instrument Session interface (sounds in/out of the pc, and the DI output of the big Marshall attached) and a Line6 Helix (for geetar stuff, along with some amp/fx sims). There is a graphics tablet and rollerball mouse attched too. A long usb cable connects a midi keyboard to play via NI Kontakt. Plex server runs on it for media streaming to the TVs and hifi around the house. Which is nice. A NAS storage drive is hidden behind it. Gave up having a superfast pc for gaming a long time ago.

Also recently added an ASUS Strix series GTX950 video card - was going to go silly, but the system will run anything on ultra settings

After all this Raspberry Pi talk, I've now got this strange and disturbing plan in my head, for doing a wee Raspberry Pi build in an effects pedal box.
Nothing quite like waking up and stomping your PC on in the morning to check the weather.
At the very least, it could be used for basic video playback on a non-smart TV, networked to my actual PC (or a network drive), so it wouldn't need much storage or anything (outside of the OS and such on a memory card. Or perhaps I could fit a laptop HDD or a SSD in a double pedal enclosure... hmm).

Could you set it up to trigger both the video and DAW from a single footswitch for recording jams?

RasPlex is exactly what you are describing, it works a flipping treat as a media client of the Plex local steraming software, and is free. Also does iplayer. just needs a 4 gig sd card, network connection, a keyboard for the initial setup, and after that you control it from your phone.

My man... The ideas you just gave me. Display mounted into a 1960b or 1930 cab with a dummy plexi on top with a power bar wired so the on switch is the mains power. Add a pedal train nano board with you idea of these tiny PCs' mounted in effects pedals. Probably something a bit more powerful like a intel nuc. Made to look like Boss pedals and have them all run separate programs. One to access a media NAS, another running Chrome OS for web browsing, another used as a steam link for gaming off a real machine, and a 4th for whatever else you could need. Just add custom colours and text for each pedal and it's use.

I would never ever do it. But it'd be fucking bad ass!

Recently added a 144hz Asus (VG248QE) and needed to find a way to quickly hot swap monitors. Once again. Velcro solves all of mans problems.

Copy paste the idea for another HDMI, 2 power cables, and a diaplay port. It's not close to what my plan is of, 2 monitor arms and simply move the monitor I need to use to the front of my vision and get the other out of the way. But it is a free way, and if I can switch fast enough that it's bearable, I'll leave it at this.
