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.

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.

I recently bought a new house, 4th room FROG turned into the Man-Room.

-46 inch Sharp HD LCD
-Direct TV with NFL Ticket and all movie channels.
-Xbox 360, Wii - with Rockband setup
-Sony receiver with 5 speaker 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound.
-5 disc Sony DVD player (blu-Ray upgrade whenever they get cheaper)
-Shaper Image Message Chair
-Fooseball Table (full size)
-I built a dartboard set up, a 3x3 corkboard, halogen spotlight shinning on dartboard, old school chalk board for keeping score.
-I built a bar, which I stained and polyed. It measures 10 ft long.
-I found a bunch of unique, hand-painted wooden beer signs from a closed down bar. They are very unique looking. Classy, something that you dont see everyday.

I have 2 crawl space attic access doors located on either side of the room. I am eventually going to run all the wire through the walls. Also, I am going to mount the TV on the wall and hide all the boxes in the closet.

As far as an office, I have converted a room downstairs, I guess it should be a formal living room. I bought a huge U-shape wooden desk. It is quite large, and very nice.
