If you didn’t see my previous post, I unveiled my first-ever custom PC build which I have dubbed, the STORMTROOPER. Beyond the computer components, I also redid my whole setup: new desk, monitors, speakers, and cord management, all with the same black/white Storm Trooper-esque color-scheme.
Take a look at the before:
And now the after:
Desk: Ikea MICKE desk (56″ wide x 20″ deep x 30″ tall)
Monitors: Acer G257HU smidpx 25-Inch Widescreen Monitors (2560 x 1440) x 2
Speakers: Creative Inspire T12 2.0 Multimedia Speaker System
Mouse: Logitech 602 Wireless Gaming Mouse
Keyboard: Perixx px-1100 Backlit Gaming Keyboard
Webcam: Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920
I’m actually in the process of modifying the desk as well with the help of Aaron Tan’s desk hack on Flickr. With some brackets that I picked up for $20 from Ikea, I’m going to add a raised shelf (black) for the monitors.
In addition, I want to paint the drawer faces black to go with the color-scheme and mount the monitors. I’m sure my cats would just LOVE to “accidentally” knock those over. I’ll probably (eventually) replace the keyboard too but that is definitely in the backlog.
What do you think? Have any ideas or suggestions for me about future upgrades?
