Alright boys and girls, gather round, you're about the hear (and see) the story of ol' Titty's battlestation. This is a sight well beyond imagination, so picture are indeed provided.

System:
A lot of parts. Who knows, I made it a while ago and I forget. i7 of some sort, 1080 Ti, 16 Gb RAM, a 480ish Gb SSD. It's legit, let's stop there.

Peripherals:
Too many to name. Thrustmaster T.1600m with FCS Hotas? Check. Xbox Elite Controller? Check. Powered blender/coffee maker that I can program via my computer? I wish, don't get crazy.

Imagine sitting at your computer. You're up in the clouds. Like, 20 stories up. High above the streets of beautiful Detroit (that's a joke, this place is a dump, never come here). In front of you is glorious 4K, from ear to ear. Everything you can see, you can actually FEEL, as the waves of beauty wash over you like the tides of the Dead Sea. Dead Sea because I'm salty AF. What more is there to say? Behold:

It's sideways, because that's cool. Get used to it, this station is now the ultimate power in the universe. I suggest you don't use it, because it smells like feet, beer, and a lot of farts.

P.S. If you're lucky you can zoom in and see my smoking hot boo. You're welcome.

:love: unfortunate that its cold? look at it this way: try running a gaming machine when the room is 85+ degrees fahrenheit. i would rather have the cold basement. silver lining.
*drools over the machine*

p.s. are those speakers on the pc on the right logitech x-540's?

When it's 80+ out, it's about 60 or so in the basement. It's not bad. So I prefer summer over the cool NY winters. Yes it is the X540, although I only have the 3 speakers hooked up atm. Also for anyone that's wondering the speaker looking thing on the back of my chair is a bass shaker, adds a another dimension of immersion to games and movies. The amp on the bottom shelf is what controls the bass shakers.
