Hey, guys. Not sure if this has been done here yet, as I wasn't able to locate a thread using the search function. Thought it would be cool for all of us to have a thread where we can share pics of our PCs, and/or gaming setup.

I'll start it off with my notebook, an Asus G73JW:

Hm, where did you get that wallpaper? Looks pretty good and the color palette painfully reminds me of what the acutal game seems to lack.

Thanks but did you alter the colours yourself or is it just your/my monitor because the original is just as golden/brown as the game itself.

Probably an automatic colour balance setting of sorts. Which is hilarious: even a cell phone thinks the palette is overdone.

Thanks Kodaemon! I really appreciate the effort but I actually like the harsh, cold and blueish look even better. That combined with some strong colors in the form neon lights, monitor screens, holograms, LEDs etc, are what Cyberpunk should look like for me (at least in many areas).

Spyhopping
21st Nov 2010, 00:09
Kodaemon, good job. Even that makes a huge difference, I'm comparing them side by side and I love how it feels cold and crisp.

I'm not sure I prefer one to the other though, I just like the change, the new mood. Harsh, unforgiving lighting is great in a cyberpunk urban setting, but warm tones work too. Warm tones give the scene a bit of a broody, emotional feel. Good for Adam's whiskey drinking scenes and the club.

I've got a similar case... almost exactly the same.

It came with rollers... so I thought... hell yeah... this thing is heavy as **** I don't want to have to lug it around everywhere.

So I put on the wheels and set it down on the ground. *Crunch* all four wheels break. :mad2:

I also get some rattling of one of the cages next to a fan... do you get that? I had to fix it by adding some weight to the structure.

This came with wheels, but I didn't attach them. I don't move my PC around a lot tbh. And nope, not had any cage rattling issues: I was getting a very slight sound from one of the fans when under load early on, but that seems to have righted itself.

Nice rigs. I really like the 932. I was going with an HAF-X when I was building my last PC, which is the updated 932, but decided on a gaming notebook instead for it's portability. Love the wallpaper, sonic. The real one. Lol.

A bit boring, but here's a stock image of a Compaq Evo N6xx notebook like my current machine. Pentium-M 1.6Ghz. Yes, I know it won't run DXHR, which is part of the reason it will likely be replaced early next year. I'm thinking that the Lenovo T410s would be a good replacement since HP has for some reason decided to put a 16:9 ratio screen in their new Elitebooks which would be the successors to the Evo line. I dislike widescreen at a 16:10 ratio, and a 16:9 ratio is even worse.

It is in fact 23" according to the specs, at 16:9. I'm not quite sure how that works, I guess it means I have slightly smaller pixels than a 24" because the res is still 1920x1080.

Yeah, the turntable belongs to my brother-in-law. I'm just borrowing it to "rip" my vinyl onto the comp. No preamp here though. I like my music, but I'm no real audiophile. I'm up to the "J's" at the moment. Next up after Journey is Judas Priest.

Pinky's computer picture is super fun to analyze.

Here's what i found so far:

In the lower left corner of the 3rd picture, theres an Aveeno. Skin hydratant? What is it?

In the second picture, the red cup contains some drink inside. However, in the third picture, it is empty. Pinky drank a little before taking the third picture?

In the third picture, extreme lower right, apparently there's a dish, with a fork. The dish is empty, and by the time of the picture, apparently Pinky had his dinner? (Behind the chair, try to see it. The dish is white and green)

Now, to the scariest: Look to Stewie's face (the Family Guy Baby Head) on top of the computer. To its left, there's apparently a pipe. Follow the pipe, going down and down, until you see some kind of blue valve. (You'll have to open the big version of the picture to see it, and zoom) Blue valve? Look at it, how the center of it reflects the lightning. ITS A CAMERA.

Pinky's being watched by someone. And apparently he knows it? That's why he's making a pile of stuff in the table ; to try to cover the camera without looking suspicious, as if he didnt knew.

WHAT A CONSPIRACY!!!

Yeah, awaiting a comment that mentions something about Freud any minute now but the reason why I bought it is because I wanted to have enough room for multiple HDDs and an sufficient air flow. Turns out that a smaller rig would have sufficed though.
I really dig the design of your case, btw. What exactly is it?


Fox, your computer is awesome. OMG BROWNIES?
That's right. There happens to be this bakery inside my computer case and instead of money they pay with a steady supply of GoldenBrownies™ for the rent.
