Not My Turning Point Gaming Rig

It might be a little late buts it's taken till now to get hold of a working camera.

Thats the main rig and next to it the sub-woofer for the surround sound. The spec for the system is as follows:

AMD 64 4200+ X2
Asus A8N-SLI Motherboard
512 MB generic RAM - it's only 512 as I fried another 1GB stick
Geforce 7900 GT 256MB

No picture of the inside of the case as it's largely uninteresting

The surround sound is 5 x 15 W and 25W for the woofer. It might not sound like a lot, but in this small room, they get loud very quickly.

Next up is the desk that contains all the stuff:

That is much more organized than the desk normally is. The reason for having 2 sets of peripherals is simple: one for PC, 1 for PS3. The statue on top of the TV is really cool as it's only made from nuts and bolts and other small pieces of metal.

EDIT: It turns out I turned down the quality too much, the 3 labels that can't really be read say : Soon to be replaced TV and Not stolen pint glass and Exactly the kind of food that won't be near the turning point rig

Now what I don't get is how you can put some cables round the back of desk and how they inexplicably get tangled up. This is where the next picture comes in:

I think theres close to 30 different cables under the desk, tangled in a way that would take days to untangle.

Then again theres the drawer of cables. How I managed to accumulate so many without getting rid of them is beyond me. Still at least 1 of them is bound to come in handy at some point in the future.

Lastly here's a picture of the gaming chair and bed:

Hardly the most glamorous looking thing and it might be a bitch to move as it lacks casters, but boy is it comfy. And that bed, that thing made me even more lazy, with having all of my computer equipment withing arms reach is great as I can lie in bed, therefore staying warm whilst I watch TV / play games.

Anyways, thats my rig amongst other stuff. the only other things I haven't shown are the electric guitar and the DVD holder that contains most of my not downloaded stuff.
