______________

The Gaming Lair

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

I've turned my second bedroom into a LAN room. I have 4 Gaming PC's which are fairly equivalent to each other and although they may not be considered 'top of the line' by most standards, they perform extremely well for the select games that we play. I host LAN parties once a month, sometimes twice. A few of my friends have their own laptops so we can easily have up to 8 player games going.


I custom built all of these units and they were pieced together at various times. I upgrade as needed and most of the upgrades come from my main system as I replace parts, but not always.

Man that's a crazy setup! I like the no split screen co-op (I hate split screen too). Nicely done! Also I like how you got a tower for you center channel.



Do you notice a difference with the Auralex Studiofoam DST-114 acoustic panels? I've been thinking of picking up a 32 piece kit off of Amazon for $60.

Thanks guys...I aim to please!


@Rodrigues_Brazil Glad you like the pics, but I am no professional. I must just have an eye for "artsy"...call it a happy accident.

@|Tch0rT| I do notice a small difference with the DST-114, they help with reflection. The wall used to be bare, so there is definitely some improvement. I got mine from ebay super cheap and mounted them with double sided tape. How is XBMC working for you? Are you having any audio issues with MKV files?

I was wondering why you had two copies of Uncharted 2 and then I saw the pic that explained it lol. Nice setup. Definitely a bit frankenstien compared to what I like but I can definitely appreciate it and appreciate the dedication.
