We can pretty much imagine that every gamer’s dream is to have a powerful computer to play all current games at maximum settings.

But besides the functional part, there is also an esthetic one meaning that there is more to a fine PC setup than just a strong graphics card and a wide monitor. There are some gaming setups that are so impressive that they deserve global recognition and this is why, in today’s video, we are going to unveil some of the most elaborate PC setups. The emphasis is put on the originality of the projects presented rather than the state of the art system specifications.

In addition to this, a masterfully done cable management eliminates the risk of tangling and frustration later on when you’ll want to change something within the whole setup. The final result is an extremely clean look with three monitors on top and a fully functional PC underneath.

All of the PC components are placed into the desk’s drawer for ease of use and have good access in case something needs to be re-modeled. Of course the cable management is done masterfully, with each wire tied to the bottom of the desk becoming perfectly invisible. The monitor is a 44 inch curved Dell that is wall mounted and rimmed with LED strips for an extra touch. This whole setup is so simple yet so full of class and not very hard to do either.

Sponsored by Tom Clancy’s The Division this setup is, as its maker puts it, “obviously overkill”. Three 65 inches Oled displays require the power of three GTX Titan graphics cards to be fully functional and render absolutely every pixel.

The peripheral vision that is usually not used when looking at a normal monitor is now fully engaged when playing a game resulting into the most immersive sensation ever experienced.

LinusTechTips – The World’s Most Comfortable Gaming Setup
The World’s Most Comfortable Gaming Setup is a project made by LinusTechTips and it involves remodeling an entire penthouse and transforming it into a gaming room. A curved 4K Samsung TV is hung on the wall with its cables hidden in a PVC pipe; the rest of the gear has been mounted on the other walls of the room to show how easily the whole setup can be modified and adapted to anyone’s individual needs. The cables that come from the custom wall mounted PC as well as from the Xbox One are organized in such a way that they look like an intentionally done pattern giving a very elegant final look. An immense pillow compliments the whole setup and transforms it into the perfect gaming nook.

The setup is powered by “the big red”, a custom painted and modded GeForce GTX Titan X graphics card. Even the headphones have a special skin to match the setup’s theme and, of course, the hanger that supports them follows the same color scheme. The last touch is the acoustic foam that is mounted on the walls giving an extra flavor to the whole setup.

Yazeed 2D – Black&Purple Setup
Initially, Yazeed became famous with his black and red setup featuring a three monitor scheme, but his latest improvements are even more impressive. An Acer curved monitor has been added overhead and it works alongside the other already existing Asus monitors. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 controllers have special skins added so their color perfectly matches the purple theme of the whole gaming setup Yazeed has so meticulously created. Purple and white cables are braided inside the case and even the graphics card and Rams have been painted purple to match the entire setup.

UrAvgConsumer – Teal Gaming Room
An entire room has been designated to be a game room and every corner of it is especially organized to reflect this idea. The console area contains a giant 65 inch curved TV mounted on the wall in a way that makes you believe it’s actually floating. No cables can be seen and a very discrete mount holds it up. The color of choice is teal, being recurrent in the LED lights that rim the TV set and the sofa, the Pulse speakers’ hue and honey comb pattern on the wall above the computer area.

Add on top of this mix a 43 inch 4K display and you have every gamer’s dream setup. The lighting is modded in such a way as to follow the water flow that cools the entire computer and the available color scheme for the LEDs is, of course, Red, Green and Blue. The entire setup looks extremely good and it definitely deserves to be taken into consideration when talking about elaborate PC custom made designs.

Insane cable management has been performed since there is no way you can see any wires coming out of this astonishing PC-desk. Some pipes with transparent liquid that traverse the whole setup are meant to offer the ever-so necessary cooling. A curved high definition monitor sits above the glass desk and strips of colored LED lights give a futuristic accent to the whole setup.

Three monitors are mounted on supports and below them the most intricate green design begins to unfold.
