Cats LOVE big, warm, CRT monitors that you stare at all day! My wife doesn't want to upgrade her monitor because it wouldn't be fair to the cats.

Love the cat, Bird.

I play on my late 2010 11' MacBook Air with anti-glare film on the screen. I was happy enough playing with the built-in trackpad until I forced myself to stop keyboard-turning, then I went back to a trackball. And yeah my trackball is nearly as big as my screen, heh.

Here is my wifes spot:

and for the computers

This is all custom built in my basement. I like to call it the "Computer Room". One of my friends and WoW raider corrects me and calls it the "Control Room". Most ppl think its cool but I often get the question "Why?" and my reply is "Cause I can".

Ok I have been ask what is my main computer Specs.

Both my Wife and I currently use: About time to upgrade a bit but...

CPU: Intel I7-3770K @ 3.50Ghz
MB: Gigabyte Z68
Ram : Patriot PC3-10700 (667 MHz) -- 16 MBytes
Graphics: Dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670
Power: Brand: Not Sure But -1200 Watt

Do I overclock: Heck no if I want to go faster I will get a faster CPU. Why mess with overheating and/or crashes.

Why so many computers: A couple are my business servers...Other than that I multibox, I have several 5 man teams. I like each on their own full size monitor.

Multibox software: Proprietary ... I coded it myself

Does that closet get hot: Well I am sure it would if I did not have a 800 cfm exhaust fan to the outside. Right now it runs about 2-3 degrees hotter than room temp. we keep it 70 down there.

The only problem there is that you can't really get faster than a Sandy/Ivy Bridge CPU. The only place to gain performance is from overclocking it. That said, I understand and respect those who don't want to have to deal with the potential hassles that comes with overclocking.

For multiboxing, I've been using HotkeyNet. It's fairly robust, but nothing beats a self-coded solution. Then you're certain that it will do exactly what you want.

Ooo! I really had to refrain from going all ragey and posting my opinion one way or the other on the OC issue. But alas, I will not. There are plenty of forums for overclocking out there, already. Rage......subsiding.....

Anyway, my wife and I each have a computer, side by side, on a large banquet-style table. It's alot like Onecrazy's setup above, but with alot more food scattered around, and cats in the way of course.

Every couple years I build myself a new PC and pass the old one down to her. So far, I have been able to keep her pining at bay, since she always gets an upgrade anyway, and we can't afford 2 new PC's at the same time. Occasionally we have had the old discussion "How come you get the new computer instead of me? You can keep using yours for another 2 years." So far, she has been sweet enough to put these discussions to rest, since I play about 4x more than she does. The computers are really my thing, and she has other hobbies that I don't interfere in.

Anyone else have family conflicts like this when it comes to upgrades?
