    I remember we had a 'Show us your gaming corner' thread way back in the day on PI, before the Pwego-Insomnia days even, so I thought it would be a good time to see how everyone from then has developed their workstations, and those whom I've not seen, share with us where they get their work done!

    I like to see peoples setups, you can tell a lot about someones personality from their workstation, so now's a good chance to share with everyone now, who you are, essentially.

    I mainly do a lot of recording, playing guitar, so I'm in no rush to buy a desk and a chair as I'm comfortable sitting on my bed - I don't play games for a long period of time each day. I also love old antiques, anything like Pipes, Cigars, old Tobacco Tins, Hip Flasks ETC.

    Also, cameo appearance of my guitar, Jessica (Bcos Jessica Rabbitt k)

    EDIT:
    My old setup, I do miss it, but we've since moved house and I didn't have the space for it :((

    Living the logic life ;)
    Got two external displays coming at the end of the month hopefully, so they'll be set up when I can afford a decent desk -- I'm hard to impress when it comes to furniture xD

    I dont really have a ton of money atm, but its the best I could do. I just run it off a laptop that I got from walmart. But its held up pretty well for a little over a year. Thats a ps3 under the laptop and a wireless mouse and some keyboard I got from a garage sale. And yes thats a refrigerator that the laptop is on :P. And the dragons name is larry. And sorry the pictures are kinda blurry, I dont have good lighting in my room. IMAG0346[1].jpg IMAG0343[1].jpg IMAG0342[1].jpg IMAG0344[1].jpg

    Got nothing against Laptop-based setups if it's a decent laptop you're using! :D I used this as my daily driver for years, games and work XD

    This is my setup, it cost me about $2.5k for the whole thing. Yeah I kinda went all out on it because I usually use it a lot more then anything else. I also have a good paying job to allow me to buy it. I truly love it, besides the wiring in the back. Before I used to have just an asus laptop and now I have this beauty.

    Looks awesome, man! I had my eye on the 760t myself at the time, as a replacement for the HAF 912+ I'd originally built the system in. How's your case holding up in terms of rigidity, cause it's more on the flimsy side when it's empty isn't it? My main issue with building a pc and having a fairly large setup was all the wiring, out of sight, out of mind eh ;) I'm trying to get back into work, just doing a bit of freelance work currently just to pay my phone bill of £43 a month (around $67) ._.

    Thanks man! yeah I cant get over the awesome graphics in some games. When I started out the case was pretty flimsy, not enough to just fall over just by a little bump, but now it is really sturdy. It's not the most unbreakable, toughest, or strongest case but I love it and it is above average in my opinion. Yeah the wiring is such a pain haha but I did my best to organize it. Wow that is one expensive phone bill you got, mine is only $25 (£16).

    Ahhh, yeah the main thing I wasn't too sure with that case was the overall quality, I wasn't sure if adding the weight of components would make it more unstable (Centre of mass theory, as I had a fairly chunky cooler). Yeah my contract is mean to be on a 64GB iPhone 6, but it came out of my hoodie pocket, right into my toilet, battery fried and took the rest of the phone with it ;-; and I'm far from being able to afford a new one, so I'm using an iPhone 5 that I bought outright on the contract (so much wasted money :/)

    Ive since moved around my room from last time I posted. This is a lot better than the other one. Just the same things except the speakers. I added those to it. I feel like this is gonna help me be more productive than the other one, because its less of a cluttered mess.

    What you don't have to beat it lol just show your station. I put a lot of time in my little station so I spent a lot. post your station!

    I usually am a clean person XD so my desk is mostly like it is in the picture. but sometimes I just don't care and I have a heck of a mess.

    Speaking of changes, I bought a desk the other day, and Corsair's MM200 Mouse mat today :O!
    I was up for nearly 30 hours straight (Finished last night, so I actually got in some real sleep) recording, yesterday and the day before, so I'd been snacking a lot, and still haven't bothered cleaning, and my beds covered in leads, and receipts and random other junk which I spent the night with xD

    Zee, IMO, it's not whether you have a cluttered workspace, I can't stand being in a sterile environment, I'm most productive somewhere that is of my own personality for instance, I have my guitars close by, so if something comes into my head, I can boot up Logic on my laptop and blast it in, while keeping work up on my desktop (My iMac is the 1.4GHz i5 model, useless at Logic for now until I get an interface, because of Logic's laughable multi-core rendering capabilities but I won't go into all that - My laptop is faster that's all).

    I prefer to have a CLEAN environment, I'm currently cleaning as I type this, but still have my things around me - I cannot stand being in a sterile room, or a room where I'm surrounded by things that aren't mine; hardcore personal space issues going on.

    Triga, if it makes you feel any better I'll post my really really old setup and then you'll feel better ;)

    I normally keep my workstation clean, but with a 5 year old daughter bringing me things to play with while i'm on my pc, gets crowded lol even have fairy stickers and a bunch of crap stuck to my pc speakers ('cheap' speakers as normally use headset.) I will try and clean it up this weekend and post some pics.
