So going in the spirit of getting some posative threads going I've always been interested in seeing peoples gaming setups, so lets have an Aus/NZ edition.

Post your Desk setup with anything of note.

As for me?

D3 guide for looking up monster HP mainly that and it was shiny I like shiny things, D3 Mouse, Demon Hunter mouse pad(yes I'm a D3 !@#$%) and bought Lollipop Chainsaw for 360 to play during maint =D

Oh and the tissue box is nothing suss, Zuul has chewed it up and made it his nest at night.

Arca, I do like your setup, I have mine connected to a 55" LED TV and it looks stunning if stretched out widescreen style, I'm yet to get a proper gaming mouse any suggestions ??

Take a pic!

As for mice I can recommend the Diablo mouse if its mainly for D3, it is very smooth, sleek and the buttons feel very natural and are fully programmable, I honestly don't know if I could play D3 without it now that I have.

If not I can also recommend the Razer Naga Hex, very nice mouse, smooth scrolling programmable keys and the ability to have the keys default to either the numpad or standard 1-0

I've used both the D3 mouse and the Naga Hex and both are really nice.

(No I don't work for EB, just using them as a good example of where to get)

I just can't justify paying more then $100 for a mouse, I dont like how the steel series D3 mouse is wired...if I were to pay that price I'd want it to be wireless. perhaps if I earn enough in the RMAH I may get a top end mouse...I know I'm a tighta$$

My desktop: http://img88.imageshack.us/img88/4240/desktoptcc.jpg

Monitor: Dell UltraSharp U2711 (27" IPS @ 2560x1440) which is a very awesome display for games, movies, work, etc. Plus my old Samsung for watching TV and monitoring hardware.

Audio: Denon AH-D2000 headphones (modified by Lawton Audio) plus a Burson HA-160DS DAC/Amp. Makes any music, movie or game sound awesome.

Peripherals: Razer BlackWidow Ultimate keyboard plus a Razer Imperator mouse - hasn't died from my obsessive clicking yet, it must be pretty sturdy.

Machine: Custom built with i7 2600K, GTX570, 8GB RAM, 4TB RAID partiton (you can never have too much TV) and 128GB SSD for boot.

Not much else to say. It's my perfect setup for playing games, watching TV and listening to music. :D

D3 mouse isn't over $100, is $98 from EB or if you can wait a week or 2 for delivery can get it for $73 from ozgameshop: http://www.ozgameshop.com/mice/steelseries-diablo-3-iii-gaming-mouse-pc

And the Razor Hex is on sale for $77 atm from eb(see link).

I know their both corded but thats personal preference I think, many gamers go for wired to avoid any risk of interference or such. I know I went from cordless to the D3 mouse and I just hide the cord.

You left out the best part, YOU HAVE A WINDOW! wow the real world view, that must be amazing. I kinda try to hide my tech from view in my windows, not the best area to live in where I am, don't want to display what I have to steal >.>

I guess I just take my windows for granted. :p Fortunately for me, I live in a relatively rural area in south-east Queensland (acreage property). So neighbours are too far away to see and I can't remember the last time there was a robbery in my area. Crime is rarely at the front of my mind.

Taken before D3's launch, where the remotes are(which is on top of my laptop) has been replaced with 2 x D3 CE boxes which look very nice between my 2 comps lol.

All 4 screens are the same which are Samsung SA700(d) I think Full HD 3D 120hz, I also upgraded my old rig and got a new one is well.

My new Pc's specs, runs stupidly fast...

I'm also in a slightly rural area in SE QLD just like poster above.

I assume you play with someone right? or you have 2 PC's and 4 mon setup for yourself? I know I have 3 but I always thought 4 could be overkill.

and a fridge next to the computer, all all the cold Pepsi Max in the world right at your fingertips.

Although I'm noticing how messy my desk is after seeing the 2 posts so far>.> Gotta be some messy people out their like me(I blame my bird)? Keep them coming!

Haha, no I don't play with anyone. I have 2 x D3 accounts which have come in pretty handy. Currently powerlvling my barb / DH to 60, DH at 18, barb at 44, created them both yesterday.

I usually have Vent / FF open on the spare. a single screen is just not enough space when playing a game, I don't want to alt-tab.

And remember people post a pic of your setup, not just specs! Specs are good too but pics keep things interesting so it doesn't turn into a epeen fight. Showoff your nerd station.
