Yes.

Yes.

What can I say? I'm old school!

Thank you. 
I'm quite proud of it, although I'm a bit limited by space.
Having said that, Tabor Hill games from within a cupboard, so I shouldn't complain! ;)

Figured I would post my setup, since someone was nice enough to iink this thread for me.  Beware, I'm a cheapskate ;D .  I set out with one goal in mind- set up a comfortable gaming station for as cheap as possible, because I was sick of sitting on the couch using the TV. Once I ordered the Xim, I realied that I had nowhere to actually USE it... up to that point, I had been playing with a controller and either sitting in a fold-up chair in front of the TV or on the couch.

All in all, I'm VERY happy with it. This is the first time I've ever had a dedicated spot to play, and BOY, does it make a difference... And I'm not going to lie, I also really enjoy seeing how cheaply I can accomplish something without sacrificing quality. I doubt I could have set up this rig any cheaper.

So, the setup-

-Xbox One S (actually a Minecraft edition, 1TB... FB Marketplace, $200 New In Box, around 2 years ago)

-Western Digital My Passport Ultra 4TB USB 3.0 external HDD. Price- $2. :) (I found it brand new, unopened in the trunk of a car at the junkyard... They charged me the standard "found item" fee ($4), minus 50% discount because my ex-roommate works there and 50% is the friends and family discount)

-Console is connected directly to one of the Ethernet ports on my router via a 14' CAT6 cable. World of difference wired vs WiFi, BTW.

- I've got everything running on one GE surge protector. (Xbox, Monitor, speakers), along with my printer and a battery charger for my vape.

-Xim Apex, using the factory XB1 controller that came with the One S. (Amazon Prime with free 2 day shipping. $122.49 ($124.99 minus the 2% I get back with Amazon Prime by using my debit card to reload Amazon balance)

-Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum mouse. $45 from Best Buy.

-Logitech G203 Prodigy keyboard. $28.40 from Best Buy- I got them to price match an online retailer, and I also received a military discount at checkout.

-HP Omen 24.5 gaming monitor. 144Hz, 1ms response time, AMD Freesync enabled. Best Buy has them on sale for $189.99. I received a 10% military discount on top of that, so I played around $175 after taxes.

-Speakers- Cyber Acoustics CA-3602FFP off of Amazon. Two pods, each with two drivers in a ported housing, as well as a mid-range/sub underneath the desk. They also have a control pod with an aux input for phone, ect. They're powered via a wall outlet, and draw input from the 3.5mm audio jack on the monitor. $38, free kne day shipping.

-Turtle Beach Elite 800X wireless surround sound headset. I THINK I paid around $175 for them somewhere online a year and a half or so ago.

-(back up, haven't used it yet) Sony PS3 NavCon and Nyko "chargelink" cable. $3 for the NavCon, $11 for the cable. Both bought at Gamestop.

-XB1 Elite controller. I paid the standard Gamestop Rewards price. I imagine I'll still use this for racing games and offline play 

-Desk and chair- Both are from OfficeMax, "realspace" brand. The Desk is a glass top two level, Merido model. The chair is a Harrington 2 in burgundy leather. Both were on sale marked WAY, WAY down... the desk for $117 (reg. $220), the chair for $114 (reg. $200), plus a 10% military discount. After tax, it was around $222 for both. I actually went up there originally to get a gaming chair that showed in stock, but after I sat in their demo, k mo longer wanted it. It felt like sitting on a pile of bricks.  I was also going to originally get an Atlantis gaming desk off of Amazon, but got the glass top instead. It was cheaper,  had more space, and looked nicer as well.

-"Business solutions" keyboard wrist rest, also from Office Max. $7.50.

-"Glorious Gaming" mouse wrist pad from Amazon, $13.50.

-AmazonBasics mouse pad, $5.50. (While functional, I'll be upgrading. I've got my eye on the hard surface Logitech G440 that's supposedly designed for high DPI gaming. Another option I ha w in mind is the G840 XL, just because I think the huge surface will help me out- I've discovered that I dont like lifting the mouse)

Aside from the mouse pad, my only other plans as of now are do so something for cable management so it doesn't look so cluttered behind the desk, and I think I may wire up some RGB led strips to the back edge of the desk glass, simply for looks while I'm playing. I have the studd laying around already along with an RBG controller. My hope is to match the lighting effects of the keyboard and mouse.

Great setup.


Netduma ?????????   Is it  Netduma R1  or    one from  Netgear  with Netduma Os ?

I happen to have  Netduma R1   ( white small router ) with  alot of features.   Recently bought  for £149.99   from Amazon  UK.


Glad to see others have   Netduma too.  I thought  I wasted my money.    Like to  use Vpn  n  switch   see different players in   Darkzone  in The Division.

Thank you.  :)

Itís the R1.
Doesnít look pretty, does it? But itís a great bit of kit. I have my ping filter set to 30 ms and distance to ~500 miles and very rarely get connection problems (uk).

Looking forward to netduma OS!
