Description

This game room has been a vision of mine for a while. I felt it would be best showcased with the focus on the room and the multiple gaming builds inside. I will give a brief description of each build and their purpose.

Media Setup:

GLaDOS

Coolteck W2 case containing:

Z170-Deluxe

I7-6700K

1080 FTW Hybrid SLI

32GB Ram

850 Pro SSD OS drive plus others

This rig is hooked up to my 65” LG OLED TV. I use it for 4k gaming when I am in the mood to play laid back with a controller. I prefer to use the Xbox one elite controller when I game in this area.

I am “pc master race” all the way, but many of my friends game on consoles; it is for this reason, as well as for exclusives, that I have the PS4. The Xbox One S is primary used for UHD blu-ray playback. I bought the Samsung soundbar to compliment the astounding picture the OLED provides. The sound bar with Dolby Atmos is amazing and can change how you experience movies.

Dual Gaming Setup:

Wheatley

Corsair Air 240 case containing:

Maximus VIII Gene

I7-6700K

Titan X Hybrid (Maxwell) SLI

16GB Ram

950 Pro SSD M.2 OS Drive plus others

ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q 34” 3440x1440 100Hz Monitor

Chell

Corsair Air 240 case containing:

Maximus VIII Gene

I5-6600K

980TI Hybrid SLI

16GB Ram

850 Pro SSD OS Drive plus others

Samsung S34E790C 34” 3440x1440 60Hz Monitor

My wife and I are both gamers, and we enjoy gaming together. We built this dual PC desk so that when we played we could do so together. Wheatley also runs the HTC Vive VR headset. Although VR isn’t really “taking off” we have really enjoyed the Vive with games like Space Pirate Trainer, Fruit Ninja, The Lab, and because of the awesome mod “Revive”, Superhot VR.

WorkStation:

Mac Pro

Xeon E5 Quad Core

Dual D700s

64GB ECC Ram

Samsung U28D590D UHD 60Hz Monitor

This is my work setup. I prefer OSX for productivity. I use a program called “Duet Display” to use my iPad Pro as a second monitor. When not being used as I monitor I use the iPad Pro for art and reading comic books.

These setups are receiving WIFI from the Nighthawk X10. This router is very strong and works well with my setups.

My media room is still a work in progress. I hope to build a different desk for my workstation, move the futon to the loft, and put 2 rows of theater seats in front of the OLED TV. I would also like to remove the shelving and put floating shelves in various places to display items I’ve collected.

Thanks for looking; I hope you’ve enjoyed Stone House Studio.

Special thanks to my brother, eli_harper13 for pushing me to post this, adding most of the parts, and taking/editing the pictures.

yes sir YOU

YES YOU

have earned the title

of

the MOST

EXPENSIVE BUILD

on PCPP.

inb4 feature +1

this is without a doubt one of THE COOLEST THINGS EVER on PCPP. i believe this would be a dream come true for many.

holy heck, there are only a few comments and already you have to scroll for a while before you can even see the full extent of the parts list

Eltech 14 Builds 13 points 11 days ago

Most expensive builds, indeed. Now I sound like a broken record... point is, it's pretty awesome.

Harper0921 submitter 1 Build 9 points 11 days ago

I agree with you. It would be much more accurate and easy to showcase if they had an option to show a room with its contents. I had to improvise, I want the focus to be on the room as a whole.

Razorwing02 1 Build 8 points 11 days ago

i think the whole room should count as a singular build cuz that musta taken a hecka long time to set up

Eltech 14 Builds 7 points 11 days ago

A room is a room. A computer is a computer; however, this posted build is pretty awesome.

Razorwing02 1 Build 4 points 11 days ago

lol the price slider was updated to a maximum of over a million bucks

Eltech 14 Builds 4 points 11 days ago

Right. I think it's glitched with one build... for some odd reason. Not this particular build of course. Unless I am wrong? Maybe it occurred once this was posted or was it like this for some time?

uberlizard 1 Build 2 points 9 days ago

it messed up because one PSU was listed at over a million dollars, making one build "worth" about 1.000005 million.

The most expensive build contains multiple rigs, not just one and also consoles. So it might not qualify.

However, that's an awesome showcase of a gaming room. Congratulations!

I have hopes of adding on a bathroom one day, but then I would just stay in there all the time and my wife may divorce me. lol. I'm not saying that during some heavy gaming late at night that I've stepped outside to pee, but I can't deny it either. lol

eli_harper13 7 Builds 1 point 10 days ago

Yeah its the Cooltek W2. Its a pretty awesome case. It is a pain to build in but it can hold alot for its size. I have one too and I love it. Unfortunately, its not available in the US so you have to import it from the UK.

MannyPCs 2 points 11 days ago

I think this is the first build on PCPP showing the submitters entire Office/Studio, but it is absolutely beautiful and I love the wooden ceiling :D

+100 for Beast PC setup

Separate #+1000 for beautiful Property and Office

Harper0921 submitter 1 Build 2 points 11 days ago

Thanks! It has been a blessing to move here. My wife and I have worked out of state and lived in a RV for the last 3 years while working toward our goals.

MannyPCs 1 point 11 days ago

Well this is certainly a wonderful place for you and your wife to settle down in.

I wish you good livings :)

atcolem 1 Build 2 points 11 days ago

wth do you do for a living to afford all that?

Harper0921 submitter 1 Build 17 points 11 days ago

I was limo driver until the girl of my dreams flew to Aspen and out of my life. She left her briefcase in the airport so my friend and I decided to return it to her. We started our journey across the country to bring Miss Samsonite her briefcase. I knew that when we found her she would invite us in for tea and strumpets! Long story short there was a lot of money in the briefcase, we spent most of it but returned the briefcase with "IOUs". She was married and we had to walk back home.

eli_harper13 7 Builds 5 points 11 days ago

The trip would have been a lot easier if you wouldn't have driven 1/6 of the way across the country, in the wrong direction! But you totally redeemed yourself when you showed up on that scooter you traded my shaggin wagon for.

While this is not the most expensive PC build, it is most definitely the most expensive overall build.

This setup is pretty amazing, well done.

I know i already commented once, but i just want to say that is some nice buildings, property and well even a nice truck.

Harper0921 submitter 1 Build 2 points 9 days ago

Thanks man! The house was originally built in 1974. It has been heavily renovated many times from what I've been told. The plumbing and electrical was a nightmare. lol. The studio, I was told, was added on in 2005. My truck is a 2011 GMC sierra 4x4, 6" suspension with 1.25" body. I love my truck, never gives me any trouble.

Harper0921 submitter 1 Build 12 points 9 days ago

I manage small offices for inspection companies. I actually don't make that much money. I worked 2-3 jobs in college, when I graduated, I had a small amount of school debt and my truck. I bought an RV and lived in it while working in various states. I paid off the truck and RV and started saving as much as I could. I don't go out, smoke or drink. I just manage money well.

My only concern would be all that tech in a small area away from the main house, Tornadoes and stuff... But I live in north Texas, so maybe tornadoes and stuff doesnt apply to you.

Cool nonetheless

I thought I was lucky that my wife let me have a game room. You have a whole game house! Does your wife get mad when she wakes up in the morning to discover that you crashed out in the game house? Excellent build all around. It's really great to see someone take this hobby so seriously.

Do you prefer the original, Portal 2, or something like Portal Stories: Mel?

Harper0921 submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 days ago

Honestly, love them all. I played Mel when it first came out and it was hard. I saw that they updated it later to be easier.

Congrats man, so cool to see the whole gaming room and not just a build. Just wondering, what do you keep up in the loft?

Harper0921 submitter 1 Build 2 points 11 days ago

Thanks! For now the loft is holding boxes for a lot of these parts. lol. BUT, the plan is to get 2 rows of theater seats in front of the OLED and move the futon to the loft and make it a small area to chill out. Maybe put some comics up there, the 3ds, im still working out the details.

THEFLAMINGAMER 1 point 11 days ago

Why do you need a titan x and so much pc's

Harper0921 submitter 1 Build 1 point 11 days ago

Well, I don't need any of it, but the purpose of each pc I talked about some in the description. I also work out of state often and bring one for my RV and one for my work office (keep that quiet) lol. As for the Titan Xs: the first real gaming PC I built, I wanted to play 4k60 and I was reading some games were utilizing 8gb of vram when doing so. I think one was Shadow of Mordor with the hi-res texture pack. I wanted to make sure I had the best chance of hitting that goal. However, I ended up building multiple computers and moving parts around. So, now my 4k60 machine has 1080s, and my 1440p ultrawide has the Titan Xs as overkill. Thanks for looking!

Harper0921 submitter 1 Build 2 points 11 days ago

Yes! Countless hours, sometimes very frustrating. I just moved here and we unloaded everything we owned into this building to keep the house from getting cluttered (there was a lot of renovating to do). I had to prioritize building closets and plumbing over my vision of the game room. Once I was done with the house stuff, it was every night until 3am working on the game room.

Thanks! I got it for my wife. She's a big Dark Phoenix fan (redhead power and such). lol. I got it from sideshowtoy.com. I want to build a small platform behind our dual gaming setup with a statue on each side, but I can't decide what statue I want.

Beautiful! If you're into that kind of thing, you should get some vicoustic acoustic treatment for your walls and some quality hifi home theater speakers.

dragoon20005 3 Builds 1 point 9 days ago

Agree on this but its seems to be this trend of all in one sound bars. Which has 10 to 12 speakers in the bar and it reflect the sound around the room to simulate surround sound.

But yes nothing beats actual full range speaker setups.

indiglow 1 point 9 days ago

May seems like an odd question but, which to you prefer between the Razer Orbweaver and the Tartarus? And why did you pick those two / do you like using them? I'm currently looking to buy one of those things but I can't decide on which to pick. I was also considering the Logitech G13.

Anyway, nothing surprising about that, but woow this room is awesome! xD Honestly that's amazing, good job.

Harper0921 submitter 1 Build 2 points 9 days ago

I like the feel of the Orbweaver best. It has mechanical keys. I got the Tartarus because I saw it on clearance at Walmart and I wanted something to match with my dual setup. It is not mechanical so thats a con, but I do like 3 rows of keys instead of 4 like the Orbweaver for simple gaming. If you are more about the MMORPGs then that 4th row would be important. As for comparing to the logitech or any other brand I can't help (I haven't researched it). The Orbweaver was a gift from my wife because when I work out of state we live in an RV and I have to game from a recliner. A full sized keyboard didn't work well, and I was trying to play Black Mesa and Half-Life 2. The gamepad made it much nicer to play. Glad you like you room! Thanks!

Swimms 1 point 7 days ago

Stunning, amazing work. I just want to know one thing, what does your upgrade cycle look like :)? With everything being more or less "current" what are your thoughts on keeping the technology fresh? I ask because as someone who tends to do incremental refreshes every 1-2 years it makes my head (and wallet) hurt thinking about trying to keep all of that stuff up to snuff.

Harper0921 submitter 1 Build 2 points 7 days ago

Well, keeping current only interest me if the technology convinces me thats it offers something of value. Ex. I couldn't do 4k60 on most AAA titles with 980ti sli, so when the 1080s came out it was an attractive upgrade (I actually waited until CES2017 was over to make sure they didn't announce a 1080ti). What I look forward to in the future is improvements in VR or AR. I love my VIVE but its definitely a first gen product (screen door effect, lower resolution, wired tracking, lacking in game selection) but I can see the potential. Thanks for looking!

Swimms 1 point 7 days ago

Oh and with this setup I would like to see some sort of battery backup, maybe an office grade UPS with a cut over to generator power for extended outages, especially given your location.

Harper0921 submitter 1 Build 2 points 7 days ago

You are reading my mind. I have added 1 UPS on my workstation since posting. And have 2 more ordered. I have spoken with my electrician about the home generator and it will certainly be a future investment. I just need to save a few more nickels first. lol

Swimms 1 point 7 days ago

Eh, at this point I would just use the workstation UPS as a stopgap solution and work toward a solution that would give you short term battery power for the entire building wired to a generator. No need to clutter up such a nice space with un-necessary UPS hardware. Just stick the UPS and generator off the back and then you can wait out any inclement weather.

You sure don't have kids ;) Joke apart, 4k is great but you could play in lightboost mode for zero motion blur and ultimate fluidity with your rig. You need constant 120 fps for that. more info here:

http://www.blurbusters.com/zero-motion-blur/lightboost/

i can't stand motion blur, tearing and stuttering so 1080 lightboost is a way better experience/immersion than 30-60 fps 4k.

You pay for "Apple" and everything that comes with it. I see where you're coming from but then I also love Apple and their software. I own a 27 inch iMac and I have it set up right next to my windows rig. The windows rig obviously has more use out of it, but when I want to watch some TV, edit some videos, listen to music, or even use it to text my friends from my computer rather than finding my phone it is nice. I got it a while ago when they released snow leopard and I still have no problems with it. I guess it's up to the user in the end.
