Every anime fan needs a nice, comfortable PC/TV enviroment for all that anime watching and shuushuu browsing, right? I recently reorganized my home entertainment area and I have admit it’s pretty nice.
I don’t know about you but one of the most important aspects of a good computer setup is noise level. I can’t stand having noisy computer fans, speakers that hum, or loud hard drives. I make an effort to pick low decibel hard drives, video cards, and case and CPU fans. Not only that, I specifically chose the Antec P180 for it’s great noise dampening and insulation. Of course, I purchased my P180 a couple years ago and I believe there are successors to it now, but it’s still a great case for me. It comes with padded side panels, 5 120mm fan slots, and silicon hard drive mounts to reduce vibration noise. As a result of all this, when my quad core processor is running at 100% load, it is barely audible and the five 120mm fans still keep the guts nice and cool ^^
That’s also the scanner I use for scanning images from my artbooks and doujins.
I’ve already discussed my monitor in a previous post but as you can see from the photos, I have dual monitors set up. This is extremely useful for coding sessions. Being able to keep one terminal open with code on one monitor and a browser for referencing on the other is great. Of course, it helps a lot with gaming as well. Fullscreen gaming on my 26″ while keeping IRC and IMs open on the other.
Kagami keeps my monitors company.
I also have a glowing keyboard because I thought it was cool. Not bad for typing either.
Here are my bookshelves with my artbooks, doujin, DVDs, manga, books, and figurines. I recently set up a second bookshelf since the one I had before was getting overcrowded ^^; I think I have too much anime from when I first started watching it. Some of the series I have are not as good as I once thought they were. Anyone else have that problem? xD
I need to clean up some of the doujins there >_<
Lastly, here is my TV stand. I have a Westinghouse 42″ 1080P LCD TV. Sure, it’s not a name brand like Sony or Pioneer, but I researched TVs a lot before picking this one and it’s turned out great. Gaming in 720p on the PS3 amazing. Terminator 2 in 1080p blu-ray is also spectacular. I still need an Xbox 360.
I am too lazy to wall mount my speakers -_-
