My Newer Gaming Setup
Well long time forum members might remember that I haven't exactly been giving my PlayStation 3 a fair TV to play on, in fact I went backwards at one point, first starting off with a 20 inch CRT flat tube:

And then going to a 20 inch CRT traditional curved tube:

Well granted I've had my new setup for over a month, I just kind of forgot about posting it but finally I gave my PlayStation 3 and laptop in the process an upgrade and bought an ASUS VW246H 24 inch HDMI enabled monitor. Also included in the upgrade was a new 7-port USB hub, my Logitech X-540 is now attached to my PS3 again, an upgrade in Internet speed with a new Rogers cable modem using my old WBR-2310 D-Link router to create a small home network and a new storage unit for my PS3 game collection.

All in all, I love the upgrade, even though the monitor is only 4 inches larger, it's widescreen with full 1080P resolution, something my poor PS3 never experienced till now although I will say it's not my final setup for the next 5 years or so. I do plan to later on buy an LED backlit TV, preferably 40-42 inches in size and relegate this monitor to just being used by my laptop or desktop (if I decide to build one).

By-product of buying longer Ethernet cable, HDMI to DVI cable, HDMI cable and RG6 cable then I should have used. In reality I should have bought shorter cables but this stuff was cheaper on then buying shorter cables but it is organized chaos down there.

Well since I last posted here, the setup has gone through some changes.

The largest changes being I ditched the printer (both in placement (it's now off to the side) and model (HP now ditched for a Samsung laser)), I got my old PS2 here hooked up to an older TV donated to me by my grandparents, I have a 2TB external drive for my computer/PS3 and I picked up a wireless keyboard/mouse combo for my computer or sometimes for the use of the PS3.

The next planned upgrades for the setup are replacing the router with an ASUS RT-N16 router, switching Internet providers to get a boost in speed, getting an SSD for the laptop and replacing my piece of junk Blackberry with a Motorola Atrix (so I'll actually be able to take some decent photos).

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 06:35 PM.
