    Default Mine's Bigger!

    Do you have the most inches?


    Hey, easy, I'm talking about your monitor!

    Patches for Windows, Rift, etc. today, so a little free time - Thought it would be kind of fun to give folks a chance to get a little "beat this rig" opportunity.

    If you've got a machine that is off the charts, share it here!

    Examples:
    • Biggest Monitor
    • Multi-Screen Monsters
    • Highest FPS (Screenshots please)
    • Lamest rig that still loads Rift (netbooks, Old / Underpowered PC's, etc.)
    • Dustiest / Dirtiest machine
    • Sick Case Mods
    • Fastest ISP
    • Electrician's Nightmare / Fire Hazard / Cable Jungle
    In short, whatever makes your setup memorable, pitful, LOL-worthy, scary, etc. - have fun!

    57" LCD TV
    360 gamepad w/xpadder
    wireless keyboard

    I get to sit back, relax and kill things.

    I don't know what my framerate is(and I don't care), but it's never been an issue running on ultra settings.

    When I decide I need privacy, I play on my 24 inch LED monitor. So sexeh.

    When I feel like getting the whole experience, it's a 47 inch LED TV, 120hz refresh, connected to a BOSE surround sound system. Wireless keyboard/mouse, so I can sit in just the right spot. Usually in nothing but boxers and bra. THAT'S how you enjoy a game!

    Granted, this usually requires me to completely disconnect and relocate my computer lol. I haven't gotten around to building another rig specifically for my living room, but I'm sure I will one of these days.

    Wow, how far back from the screen do you sit? I'm assuming living room / couch type of thing with that setup? Also, how's the heat on your machine? My laptop runs really hot after a while in Rift, but it's just a consumer grade box, not a gaming machine; That poor little Mobile graphics chip in mine gets hot after just a few minutes in a busy Sanctum or Meridian crowd...

    ASUS CG5290
    Intel i7 920@2.67GHZ
    9GB RAM (not sure what kind)
    *koff* Vista OS

    When in private mode, I play on a 22" matching ASUS monitor. When not in private mode, I play on a 60" Sony...all it takes is the flip of the switch and I'm up and running


    Never had any trouble with lag or framerate on ultra.

    I keep wanting to put it up on my husband's stock trading system and spread it out over his 6 monitors just to see what it looks like...but for now, I'll stick with the flatscreen on the wall ;)

    Amazingly, I had the chance to upgrade to 7, but I missed the time window...(dammit)

    Luckily, I seem to have avoided the issues with Vista that so many have had....so far *knock on wood, throw salt over my shoulder, etc...*

    You must be new to the internetz. You can't make any indication of being a female without aggroing every male in the area. Otherwise, the thread's new topic is about things like this:

    Meh, people playing on TV's isn't terribly impressive, considering they are limited to 1080p at most (1920x1080). I bet a lot of people are still using 720p, too.

    I run a 28" as my main panel, flanked by 2 22" panels. The 28" is 2560x1440.
