My new gaming setup... All in one place.

   0
Hello all. For the past few years, I've generally had whatever consoles I owned hooked up to the TV in the living room, and had my gaming computer hooked up to whatever monitor I had in the spare room or bedroom. I finally decided to change this over the past few days, and finally finished a little while ago. I'd like to detail a bit first.

I was gaming on PC with a 22" LCD, an AMD X2 4600 (2.4Ghz), 4GB of DDR2 800, and a BFG 8800GTS 512MB OC video card. In with my PC was the PS3, because my monitor has HDMI in, and the 30" CRT HDTV in the living room only had component as well as being limited to 480p and 1080i (no support for 720p). Now, out in the living room was the Xbox 360 and a crappy P4 PC just to watch Hulu and watch video files.

Now it's a bit different:



I also got the component cables for the PSP so I could play Mother 3 and Minish Cap on a bigger screen when I'm at home without needing to run an emulator on the extremely non-power saving computer.

And that's pretty much it. As an aside, if anyone's in Central Florida and they want a 30" CRT HDTV (still works great), let me know and maybe we can work out a trade or something.

That's me. I really like zombie stuff, pretty much every type of video game, drawing things (It's been like six months), play music in a band, and am a geek. Very much so, in fact. Also, I drew the Maxx that I'm using in my header. It's going to stay there until I hit some inspiration for some video game artwork.

My job is to make the computers and electronics at my work rise again from the dead. It's alright, as jobs go. Of course, since I'm heavily into computers, I either have or have had every major type of personal computer known to man... so if you ever want to discuss computer things, I can probably have a lengthy conversation about it.

I live in the mostly sunny Central Florida, and have for about 16 years now. I'm pretty sure I'm too old to be playing games anymore, but I really don't see that ending any time soon and hope it never will.

I have a gaming PC (C2D E6550 2.33Ghz/8800GTS 512), PS2, Dreamcast, N64, DS, PSP, Xbox 360 and PS3, but I have owned an Odyssey2, Aquarius, ColecoVision, NES, SNES, Genesis, GameBoy (as well as Advance and SP), PS1, Xbox, and a Wii as well. They've all either been broken, sold, or have been grudgingly traded in for the "next best thing" due to lack of funds to buy them outright.

I read fanatically, and even though I have plenty of different books there are several that are read over and over again. Pretty much anything that William Gibson or Terry Pratchett have done are my favorites, but there are plenty of writers that still get my attention. To be certain, I'm happy Rhianna Pratchett is writing for videogames.
