The View from 35 Yards
Following in the footsteps of Kestrel, Matticus, and Jess, I’ve decided to put up my humble desk setup at school and what you would see when I play World of Warcraft. It’s a testimony that you don’t have to have a shiny system to play the game or be using that much extra equipment.
- Dell Inspiron 700m, 2.0 GHz, 1.5 GB RAM, 40 GB Hard Drive
(I’ve been using the same computer for almost 4 years now. It has endured beatings and many games of intense graphics, the first of which was Battle for Middle Earth.)
- AcomData E5 250 GB External Hard Drive
(This is where I run World of Warcraft from now.)
- Samsung SyncMaster 151V 15″ Monitor
(Most of the time, this monitor is turned off. I usually only use it when I’m doing work, WoW-related or not, and need a second screen for quick reference. As a matter of fact, I have the GPSA Engineering Data Book open.)
- TDK Tremor Xa-10 Speakers
(They’re the orange things. I started using external speakers when my laptop finally succumbed last month to the design flaw that causes its speaker cables to fatigue and break with age.)
I’d be interested in seeing what you’re using to play. It’s always fun to see what other people can come up with to enhance their gaming environment.
That about wraps it up this week for the generic posts to ease me back from vacation into the mood of writing more hunter-related stuff, which will start to appear again next week. If you find spare time this weekend, go check out the All Things Azeroth podcast episode 97. I managed to sit in on their recording session, which was full of fun.
