My apartment and PC setups throughout the past decade

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey all, I thought I'd let others check out my pad for anyone interested. I'll try to keep this topic/blog relevant towards us who are into PC/tech/DIY/rig setups.

I got my own mortgage back in 2013 on this brand new apartment. I'm an electrician in the building trade who also loves DIY stuff in my own time and enjoy helping family/friends out, also a PC hobbyist and an online gamer albeit casually these days.

 

But before I get into that, here's a quick video I made of the last PC setup I had at my parents house from back in 2011 when I first had triple screens and ready for when Battlefield 3 came out: 

  

So then I moved into my own apartment in 2013, created this video of me putting everything together along with the PC setup connected to my TV using wireless keyboard/mouse lounged back onto my couch:
Apologies if you don't like the music, just mute the sound if you dislike it.

I later had gigabit broadband installed and made a video of my home network ethernet cable route layout:

 

Then I decided to go back to gaming at a desk as I was missing multi-screen but mainly the use of the new HOTAS setup so I made some alterations to the corner of my lounge:

So a while later I realised I needed a more comfortable HOTAS setup, and a bigger desk along with 2-3 extra tablets due to GameGlass. I contemplated getting rid of my TV unit but I love it too much it just looks so awesome. I had two double wardrobes in my bedroom so I decided to get rid of one of them, and so this is the result of my current setup:

any ups?

No but I've been contemplating whether to get one for a while now.

The main reason I've not got one yet is because I live within a city centre so the chances of an unexpected power cut should be extremely low. I've lived here for 7 years and only noticed 1 power cut so far.

I should get one though...
