61 posts in this topic

In the next year.

Really all i want is a place to shut the door and watch a movie. I also want a gaming setup.

So surround sound maybe installed, gaming desktop, big ass tv or two, work area. Maybe a small wet/dry bar and a pinball machine.

I'm thinking two TVs so i can watch the game and play X-Box

Any and all advice is needed.

Here's my advice

1. Build your own gaming desktop if you have the know-how, you get much more for your money. You can build a $4,500 Alienware PC for under 1500, without the cool Alienware case of course.

2. Spend the extra money to get an L.E.D. TV they are so nice.

3. Go for a pool table instead of a pinball machine if you have the room, pool is much more fun and in a pinch you can pull some stools up to it and have a makeshift poker table!!

I'm not loaded. I don't know what my budget is going to be yet as I am buying a house. The man cave budget depends on how much house i buy!

As for work, i meant like office work. Nice desk printer etc. And most of the work will be surfing the internet frankly.

So maybe I should have said internet area.

Thanks. The S.O. has enough tech skills that she could do the building.

Probably an upstairs bonus room type thing. Not sure yet.

Lucky, I have to work on my fiancee's PC every time she has an issue with it :(.

If its a place with minimal (Like 2 or less.) or no windows I'd say go HD projector, then have a side TV. I've seen it done before. That way you can have the game on the projector, and can play xbox or have another game going too.

looked at 4 houses today...one had a massive bonus room upstairs. literally enough room for a pool table as well as a theatre area and a work area. The other 3 had typical bedroom sized extra rooms.
