Did you try it in portrait mode?

Ya, it was just too large. Too much head movement required.

I’ll probably get a 22" or something some time and put it in portrait mode. But it’s not really a priority.

Sorta got my home workstation setup. I need to get a real keyboard. Probably from WASD. I have a WX 2100 for my GPU, but I think I want to go for a higher end model to support two more monitors.

The monitors are a 43" 4K Dell (P4317Q), and two 27" 1440p Asus (PB277Q)

Ryzen 5 2600, Radeon WX2100, 16GBs of Kingston Fury, 512GB Adata M.2, ASRock B450, Fractal Design Define Nano, all Noctua fans with a Noctua U12S.

And of course, Linux. Fedora to be exact.

Dude i couldnt even tell until i was trying to position them perfectly.

The screens are the same size however the top’s frame is bigger due to the integrated speakers. which i grabbed both for 150each so im not going to complain about that.

Honestly there are worse things to complain about

Very much work in progress, but this is what I’ve been putting together today.

Not really a battle station, but it’s the mainframe that powers my battlestation! :laughing:

Mostly super old equipment. So far I have a proxmox server, a Windows server, FreeNAS, and PfSense.

So this is unfortunate.

My white crt that I just got might be dying ;-;

I’ll have to pull one out from when I was a kid. It should fire right up but… ugh, its been so long, and I think its only 800x600… but its literally only going to display terminals so…

Ech. Just miffed about this display. Its actually 1:1 I was just waiting to fuck around with that.
