Hmmm, I was unaware.   I have triple monitor systems, several of them. I have zero vga hookups. Yet I can easily get into UEFI BIOS  via HDMI and/or DisplayPort.


So, I guess I'm still puzzled as to why you'd need a vga for that.

My little workstation wont fit in one picture, more due to the room outlay then anything though.  So you be having 3 pictures to look at !  

First from the 'front' of it, so to speak; main monitor is a ASUS XG438Q (3840x2160), which was huge at the beginning, compared to the ASUS ROG Strix XG35VQ (3440x1440) I had previously.  That one is now my right hand monitor, mostly for Twitch streams but also if I play a game where super widescreen would be more immersion driven to play.  The third one is a 'local' brand called Voxicon D27QO IPS 27" (1440x2560).   The top screen is for my 2nd PC, it is a ViewSonic 32" VX3276-2K-mhd (2560x1440). and one day when I get around to it I be plugging in the PS4 to it as well (although part from setting the PS4 up, still not played any games on it !   )

Then here is the left side of the workstation, where my main PC resides.  The case is Deepcool Quadstellar, which I bought end of January.  It will be housing my new PC components later this year when I be upgrading it all. 

Bought it because I liked the compartmentalization of it, left top side is just a huge hard drive cage (8 x 3.5-inch and 2 x 2.5-inch drive bays, with additional 3 x 2.5-inch bays in the case).  Yes, I do like lots of hard drive space ! Below it are the PSU and cables, right hand side top is for the graphic card(s), or water cooling if one so wish.  Bottom right is for the motherboard, and it supports all sizes.  I also like the look of it, not the 'regular' look of a PC case, much like Jafo's ThermalTake Level 10 case.  

And the last picture is of the right hand side, showing my 2nd PC, which is contained in a Fractal Design Node 804 case.  The poor thing is not getting much used though, but good to have it around when doing upgrades on main PC or if MS decide to screw things up.

Cool desk!  Liking the spaces above the drawers.


Looks like some canned air might be in order?

Ok.  Here's my home office:

This is my work from home office. 


My desk.  This is for doing calls and such.  I don’t really spend much time here.


Workbench.  This is where I spend most of my time when working from home.


Desk from a different angle. 


Design and QA area.  This is for testing and sketching up.  My sons also use these desks frequently (one is an engineer and the other a 3D artist).

Such awesome setups!

Willing to bet that I get the messiest workstation award!

The tall and the small.  The thing at the back was altogether 10K .... the Acer Aspire TimelineX at the front was $80 from the Ballarat market [RRP was apparently 1299 new].  Chucked 10 Pro on it....just a few sticking keys to sort...

Hey Syd, you have the same desk as Shaunna and I.....'cept we're minus the cat.  Our little dog, Buddy wouldn't have a bar of it, being the alpha male and thinking he's boss of everything.  Due to limited space here we aren't using our desks, which are currently stored in the garage until we find a bigger place.  I'm currently using some bits 'n pieces I put together to accommodate my PCs and peripherals, etc.

Things are still a bit of a mess [still settling in and all], but that's my set-up for now.  When we get a bigger place I'm going to purpose build a desk to fit the space allocated for it.... something I really want rather than having to make do.

My current setup. Nothing flashy.

Thank you !  

The weather gadget (far left) is made by one of the developers of rainmeter, link can be found over at their forum, here.

The gadget next to it is for Twitch, found that one as well over at the rainmeter forum, made by a member there.  Here is a link to his website for the gadget.

The Network Meter at the far right can be found over at DeviantArt, made by HMN, Network Meter 3.0.1 (tweaked version).

Right next to that one is a Top RAM meter made by SilverAzide, also from DeviantArt.

All the rest in between those 4 gadgets is me having played around with rainmeter to try and learn to make some gadgets myself.  Both the ones on each side of the clock has been remade to a Icon Bar instead, which I'm still playing around with since not 100% happy with them yet.
