Re: Poker Environment and Settings. Give a hand to your Penny_Black

deucegame gave me his computer unit setup (made with the help of Dunkman I think). behemoth and p3rc4 have suggested some stuff more adapted for me (I cannot stand the noise of fans when the comp is running).

Will keep you updated and will post pics as soon as it's up.

Thanks for your input to all of you.
Remarks, pics and stuff are still welcome though.

Re: Poker Environment and Settings. Give a hand to your Penny_Black

Here's my new setup as promised. No, I didn't clean up and no, I've never heard of cable management so gfy in advance.



Bonus: My desktop background - a picture I took on the way to Atlantic City last week.

Re: Poker Environment and Settings. Give a hand to your Penny_Black

ok, so i got the new monitor stand today, this is what it currently looks like (wee, time to learn 20 tabling)



*yes my desk is ghetto and modified a few times, its really hard to find a good one around here and i really like the way everything is set up now, so i'm keeping it til I move to a new apartment/house and have more space to get something nice.

probably still mess with the monitors a bit, but i think i'm def gonna like this more than the wideness from before

still gonna replace this with a 30" eventually and bust my 20" back out with it. and def need to find a good chair at some point

Re: Poker Environment and Settings. Give a hand to your Penny_Black

Here's my final setup. Thx to deuce, dunk, p3, and behemoth for the help.
My setup is built for complete silence as I hate having the buzzz of a Pc Tower.

I went for a Quad Core 2.83 Ghz processor and this works absolutely awesome with 3Gb RAM.
The video card is specific as it's one of the few that doesn't use fans for less noise. It's an NVIDIA GFORCE with a refrigerating system.
The Tower is an ANTEC SONATA (the absolute best - again for noise considerations)
The computer works absolutely fine with Vista, a dozen open prgms, multitabling on several sites, trackers and having skype convos...

Screens are 2x Acer 22'' and I now usually also have my laptop for emails and stuff.
I use the MX Revolution keyboard + mouse from Logitech and although I feared wireless stuff, I haven't had a single problem with it. Btw I strongly recommend the mouse. It's he best ever had.
I added Logitch webcam, speakers and Bass booster + a pretty good headset and also a 3G connection backup in case of loss of my normal one.
Gonna buy an Aeron Chair.
