There are some nice setups in here. I'm currently setting up my 1st (legitimate) "Man Cave." I will take some pics and post when I'm done. I have kind of a theme but was curious what you guys would do if you had a room all to yourself! I want it to be dark for sure, like a theatre setting of sorts. I already painted the walls Black with blackout curtains (I game mostly during the day). I have my entertainment center and a black leather recliner. A frig for beer, water, Chinese food, etc. A lava lamp, Lol ... What I'm an 80's - 90's kid, OK! Some memorabilia stuff, sports teams, Star Wars, Gears of War, My Guitar!

So what would you guys suggest I add, seriously, don't go all ballistic please. I have money but not endless funds by any means. I just bought a 2015 Camaro for the wife so she can't complain too much!  :)

RML - http://www.cnet.com/news/best-low-lag-hdtvs-for-serious-gamers/

There's a good list of low-lag tv's for gaming.  I'd do a similar search for projectors, as the quality and price have improved drastically. 

Then, if you go with a projector, you should also build some theater style seating.  basically a platform behind a couch where you can set another couch, if you expect to entertain people. 

of course, a pretty awesome surround sound system, at least 2000W

search ebay for RGB LED, and you should find some remote controlled RGB strips complete with a remote, 5-10m of (I recommend the non-waterproof) self-adhering LED's, receiver, and power supply.  These things are pretty sweet and can add a lot to the room.  Never game in pitch black!  I tend to use red or blue ambient light.

I'd post my setup pics, but don't think I can just attach them? You have to put them online first right?

You just put them on a website like postimage.org :)
I just wanted to say that you are a phenomenal gamer. You make it look so easy and your gameplay has this commanding "tone" to it (i.e. not frantic -- more of a dominating calm :) ).

That's what I figured.

Thanks for the site Hunter.  Never heard of them before.  I'll do this at some point today.

I've had a few updates since last year's post.







Specs are in my sig, but the video is now handled by Samsung's 65" 4k curved 7150 UHDTV (up from a 55" 1080p, which is now in my bedroom).  I wasn't really after a curved TV, but I like it now that I've had a chance to get used to it.

Audio is handled by an Emotiva preamp/processor and 5 channel amp (roughly 260-280w per channel) and Martin Logan Electrostatic speakers.  The sub is my favorite addition so far, an SVS PB12+.  Took about 80 hrs to break in, but after that and running Audessey to EQ and calibrate for the room, it sounds excellent.  Powerful yet blended.

I use the XIM4 with about any game that requires shooting routinely (SP only).  It's a God send.

Very nice. Loving that screen. If I ever moved back to proper couch gaming I would have one of them in a heartbeat.
