Congrats dude! But ya need a chair for the love of your back lol

Thanks! I agree that it's not the greatest gaming chair, but I'm hoping to get a new one soon. lol

Another pro tip, you can probably get a high end ergo chair like a Steelcase Leap, used for around $200.

These usually retail new for over $1k and businesses sell them to used office equipment outlets every year. They're significantly better than any gaming chair.

My Leap is almost 15 years old, had it for 5 years with zero problems. The $100-150 office chairs I'd buy new in the past would fall apart every 1-2 years.

Your back will thank you.

Word of advice: Get your PC off the carpet. At least 4 - 5 inches above the carpet. Find a sturdy box or maybe move some of those books over.

This is very good advice. I've had computer fans get wrecked by sucking up dust from the carpet.

Okie dokie! There's a black plate under the pc with some bubble wrap underneath so it's not completely on the ground. I'll see if I can prop it up some more though. Thanks for the tip!

You’re only $90 away from a nice chair to complete it all. Nice bro I have the lian lancool case too

ID: hmar43o

That's the plan! Oh nice, yeah I feel like the case is pretty clean in my opinion.

Whats in the case? We need specs

ID: hmba3ld

AMD Ryzen 7 5800x

Samsung 1TB SSD + Seagate Ironwolf 4TB HDD

G. Skill 32gb of RAM

EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 12GB for my graphics.

What I can say off the top of my head. Will have to check for the others.

ID: hmc3hbp

Should of halved the RAM and spent that on a chair. You don't need 32gb.

Once you are immersed in a game it doesn’t matter the price tag of your rig. Looks like a cozy gaming setup to me. Enjoy!

Everyone talking about the chair do they not see your keyboard is on the fucking floor lmao.

If you can, use a couch or any decent living room type sitting furniture instead. This is back problems waiting to happen. If you’re stuck like this for a while, consider getting a lap board so you’re not in a weird position with your mouse hand. Also, be sure to keep in mind the light levels. Don’t strain your eyes too much with those blinds. I don’t think enough people keep the room lighting in mind when using computers these days.

Hey thanks for the tips!

I have a lap board right now actually. I realize the chair isn't the best, but I'll be on the lookout for one next week. Yeah the blinds can be a pain...

Optimal conditions lessen any problems so it’s good to keep in mind. Sharing the knowledge.

Checkout the Origami Folding Computer Desk. I only just replaced it after years due to wanting a nicer desk that included sit / stand function.

Went ham on the RGB but forgot a proper desk and a chair.

Nothing poor about comfort while gaming. Only way I see of improvement is a beanbag chair with a handmade platform to hold your mouse and keyboard.

Seems legit.
