Do what real gamers do ..... metal chair from the basement, use an old card table, 12 pack of mountain dew code red, cheetos (hence why you dont want a 130.00 keyboard), and at least 10 bottles to pee in so you dont have to get up ...... you got the machine now live the life lol


JK!!! Go to office max and look for clearence, my chair was 200.00 alone but I love it

for your desk i would suggest a good chunk of plywood and some cinder blocks, no as far as your chair goes id say like a leather excutive chair.... gotta keep it classy lol

You got it right. just find one of those cheap folding tables but the chair will be important considering you are going to spend more time in it than your mothers womb. haha

Wanted to just mention that the 950 has a much higher multi so it will give more OCing headroom in the long run.
