Cause I’m Out Here Grinding

My computer setup (click the pics to enlarge):

  • Two 27″ Samsung P2770HD monitors
  • Alienware 23″ OptX 2310 3D monitor (and Nvidia 3D Vision glasses)
  • 17″ MacBook Pro
  • Bose QuietComfort 15 Noise Cancelling headphones
  • Logitech MX5500 keyboard/mouse combo
  • Logitech MX Air mouse

Overall, I’m not a very materialistic person but I think you should be very happy and comfortable with the location where you spend most of your time.  I absolutely love my setup and I use it mainly for grinding poker, doing recreational programming, or simply relaxing.

I use the leftmost monitor for the Xbox 360 (and connect it to my PC with Media Center to watch poker videos).  I generally dual-monitor, filling the right monitor with poker tables and use the middle monitor for web browsing and poker videos.  I could never [happily] go back to using a single monitor after using two monitors for the last few years.

One thing that I think is very important for a poker setup is redundancy.  I have a redundant (wired) keyboard, two redundant mice (one wired), and just recently a second internet connection.  Once you start playing pots approaching the cost of a year’s worth of internet bills, you can easily see the merit in having such redundancies.  A friend of mine recently disconnected from the internet when he was in a $1200 pot with the nuts (best possible hand) and didn’t connect in time… yikes!

  1. Sounds expensive, that nuts.

    Shitty, sounds like he lost his nuts.

    What kind of guy loses his nuts.

    Those are expensive nuts.

    I could go on.
