PC gaming 🐟: Where is your rig? Do you have your gaming pc in the same room/desk as your work station? My new home has enough room for a den and an office. I'm trying to decide if I want my work desk in the same room as my gaming pc. Thoughts?

Yeah! Runs pretty much everything except 4k 144hz and it’s pretty quiet under load. Really appreciate the power out of a SFF footprint

Same desk. Why wouldn’t you?? Pc gaming in an Aeron chair lol

I had a 4770K/ GTX 970 for 7 years. Motherboard died last fall and replacing it was the same cost as getting a newer chipset. So I am now running 10600K/ RTX 3070 (because why not)

I got one on Newegg as part of a bundle. I didn't even know what else was in the bundle I clicked buy so fast. Turns out 2x16gb ram from a mediocre manufacturer. Decided to roll with it and it's been fine so far in my rig. Best of luck.

Post rig stats!

Mines old and not that good and I play mostly low demand indie games and old games lol I did just put a SSD in it last month!

On my desk. I used the same PC for school, work, gaming, and mining. Guess you can’t do that for a larger firm. Definitely put everything in the same room, and better yet, on the same desk. Games are pretty immersive nowadays. You do not want to be in your little gaming room trying to make a great comeback from 0-0-42 while your Outlook and Teams are exploding in the other room. P.S. Removing the case is always the best way to cool things off.

There is a barcode behind my finger lol

I use the same desk for both. Desk has a bottom shelf that pc sits on. My main monitor can be moved vertically up at a perfect point above ny work laptop screen so I can use both easily.

i9 9900k, rtx 3080 evga ftw3 ultra

I guess I'm just worried it would be too much to sit at the same desk 10 hours for work, then sit at the same desk to relax... Maybe it's not that big of a deal.

I literally have been doing this on average every single day for past year lmao

My gaming desktop and work laptop are on the same desk and I have a USB and HMDI hub to switch the inputs of my keyboard and monitors over with the press of a button i9-10850k, GTX-2070S, 32GB ddr4

L desk, work on one gaming on other.
