Neon Rig

This is my current & favorite build so far. The Neon Rig is a dual boot system running Windows 10 & Mac OS High Sierra.
I'm a professional Wedding Photographer so this is mainly an editing rig while in Mac OS, then when it's play time I switch over & run Windows for all my gaming needs.
Hit me up if you have any questions :)

This is my girlfriend's & I's room/ Battle Station. Here is some extra information that I wasn't able to part out below.
My desk is a Autonomous Standing Desk, that is the most affordable standing desk I could find a couple years back it is super well built & I love it. My girlfriends desk is a custom standing desk I built.
She is running my old rig with a previous 34in LG Ultrawide I owned.
It was one of their first professional editing ultrawides with a good colorspace, but it had some decently bad light leaking in the corners.
So I gave her that & upgraded my rig to the LG 38in Ultrawide with "HDR"
The Studio Monitors shown in the first photo are the rebranded Gemini SR5s now branded as M-Audio, I'm using these with a Scarlett 2i2 audio interface & a Cerwin Vega XD8s Active Studio Subwoofer.
What is on my desk is a 10.5 in 2nd Gen iPad Pro, which I use for occasional illustrating, but mainly as a 2nd monitor to watch youtube or Netflix while I edit. It's held up by a generic boom arm I picked up from Amazon for like 20 bucksWacom intuos pro small which I use for a lot of intensive Photoshop work & a Xbox One Controller for a couple random games I play on Steam that require a controller like Skater XL.
My daily peripherals are a 60% Anne Pro 2 keyboard with the nice colorful caps they sent and a few textured keycaps from WASD Keyboards with a nice little custom ESC Key with my logo on it.
I use my Razer Orbweaver & Stream deck for custom macros while editing, they are both a huge time saver I love them.
They keyboard wrist rest is also from WASD Keyboards for a pretty reasonable price. Then we have my Xbox one controller & my favorite & most comfortable mouse since the Mad Cats Rat 9.
The case is the NZXT S340 Elite in White. This is one of my favorite cases, It has a medium form factor that can house a full ATX board. It also has front HDMI for VR gaming. I have a Oculus Rift that I share with two of my buddies so unfortunately it wasn't my week to have it when I took these photos. It kinda makes my set up look a little messy anyway.
But anyway a great case to build in with awesome in case cable management with a modern & clean look.


Disclaimers:

-The only reason I'm running a Titian X is because I got a crazy good deal on it from someone local when the GPU market was insane. I got it way less then a 1080 was going for at the same time.

- Sorry for the cable management, I just had to undo all my zipties because my Nas server failed & I'm waiting for it to return from being fixed before I clean up everything again.
