    so i got wondering what does everyones current gaming setup look like?

    this is mine at the moment

    TV : Tevion 32" HDTV with 1x component input, 1x, vga, 1x hdmi, 2x scart
    Joytech 245c A/V control centre with 5x component input to 1x output, 4x optical input to 1 out, and 4 port network hub

    Into that i have going (all through component)

    Xbox 360 with official component cables and cheapo toslink lead

    Heavily modified orginal xbox with 300gb hdd, x3cp, with official component box and heavyduty bandridge ofc component cables, cambride audio cables and a decent toslink

    Nintendo Wii with cheapo 3rd party component cables

    Sony PS2 with cheapo component cables and cheapo toslink

    Nintendo gamecube modded to play u.s imports with official component cables (soon to be retired due to wii)

    outputting from the joytech it goes into my tv using bandridge ofc components and cambridge audio cables

    also going from that into my packard bell 5.1 dolby digital / dts decorder, then into a parkard bell amp, with panasonic floor standing speakers at the front, centre is cambridge audio speaker, and rear are floor standing parkard bell rotational split speakers

    also got a Sega dreamcast with 3rd party VGA box going into the vga input on the tv

    heres a pic of my setup, sorry for the pic quailty, just got my new digital slr camera this morning and havent quite figured out how to focus yet!

    Hmm... My setup is kinda rough at the moment.

    Anyway, this is my Desk Area :-

    Nothing too special here. Note the stack of Gamecubes ;) And yes, I am using one Gamecube as a GBA for Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles :p

    Oh, and Optimus Prime on the Left there.

    In the lounge area -

    As I'm in Europe, thats an RGB TV the Saturn and Dreamcast are hooked up to :) Currently used for Saturn Bomberman and House of the Dead 2 when I have mates over! Oh, and my Tekken arcade stick is hiding in the back there, for when I fire up Marvel vs Capcom 2 :)

    will pm you about the tv in a bit

    as for the xbox, heres the full specs (nothing really special, but does the job for me)

    1.6 motherboard with x3ce chip

    official halo green case with a x3 control panel on the front (so you can see running time of films, mp3s etc, file names etc.) with 2x usb ports and intergrated ir sensor for the remote

    300gb hitachi hdd, basically filled with my most played games, movies, mp3s, emulators, tv shows etc. running xbmc as default dash, with xbox classic skin at the mo

    samsung 605b dvd drive

    both heatsinks have been reseated with artic silver coolant, stock fan has been replaced with a quieter one, cant remember which make tho.

    also have linux runing on it, but not very good, as need to change to a lower version mobo which supports 720p at some point

    and thats about it, nothing really special compared to some ive seen but its my baby and acts as my dvd player, hifi, etc. and is also networked upto my main server pc for streaming video, audio, etc.

    Makes me want to go out and get an Xbox just to mod! lol

    2x 19" LCD's, 1 PC with dual view (it's a little different from extended view as the task bar only appears on 1 screen, and games will launch on the primary monitor). If you have it set to extended everything gets streched and it looks aweful.

    I have two... one that I play all the time, and one that I seemingly never use.

    -25" Wega CRT (I should've got a 28") w/ AV-Multi (RGB) input. Can currently play PS/2, Saturn, and PCBs in RGB.
    -3Ghz PC w/ Arcade VGA, and a nifty VGA->21 pin RGB connector. Allows me to play Mame, SFC, MegaDrive, PC-Engine games in 15khz... often with prettier results than the real thing. Of course, other emulators as well that support the resolution.

    The one I don't play
    20" Aquos HDTV w/ all my "HD" machines. (DC, Xbox and the 2 games I have for it, GC and the 3 games I have for it).

    actually thats forza 2 for the 360,

    the better setup ive seen is 5 fullsize screens, and a small lcd used as a rear view mirror. and yes you do need a 360 for each screen

    didn't notice the steering wheel!

    How do you cluster the systems for sync? a router/hub? (don't tell me USB )

    if you notice on the lower right corner (under the screen to the right) there are three "fat" black 360s

    My setup at school consists of my Quad Mac Pro hooked up to my 24 inch Dell 1080p+ LCD, along with my PS3 and Wii hooked up to it. My 360 is hooked into my 720p projector, and is hooked up to the 5.1 surround sound.

    At home, Ive got my 4 arcade machines (Marvel vs Capcom/ Street Fighter 2, Playchoice 10, Neogeo, San Francisco Rush sitdown), plus countless other things hooked up hah.
