At Friendly PC we focus on making your computer performance the best it can be on any machine. But one aspect that’s often overlooked when talking about hardware and software is the physical environment you’re creating.
Most of us simply set the monitor, mouse, and keyboard on a desk, plug everything in and power up (not that there’s anything wrong with that). However, sometimes the same look can get boring, and you need to think outside the box to create a more satisfying space around your computer.
To high level gamers, or those who just like personalizing their space, this is known as a PC “battlestation”.
What is a Battlestation?
Typically, a battlestation consists of a desk, one or more monitors, a gaming desktop computer tower, speakers, mechanical keyboard, gaming mouse and lighting. The configurations – style, color scheme, and placements – are endless. Technically, this can be true for all computer setups but what makes a battlestation so unique is the impression it gives.
Today, we’re going to share some of the coolest customized desktops we’ve seen, because every gamer could use a little battlestation inspiration.
Pretty as a Picture
This is one of the most conventionally attractive computer displays we’ve seen. Tired of hiding your computer in a back room because it doesn’t suit your interior design sensibilities? This idea makes your computer a centerpiece of your office or sitting room design. The simple components and thoughtful frame in this set-up can add a touch of class to any room.
Only the Essentials
Looking for an ultra-minimalist battlestation? Look no further! If you detest seeing even the slightest bit of clutter in your field of view when you’re in the middle of a boss fight, this design was made for you.
We’re Sensing a Theme
Still on the simpler end of our battlestation inspiration theme, this boldly colored and modern desktop has a killer look. Fans of minimal design will love this arrangement and we particularly love the color coordination. This desk started with great design and was executed perfectly. We love it when a plan comes together.
The Place has Great Ambient Lighting
The ambient lighting trend is really catching on and becoming a must-have of desktop design. This clean, comfortable space is perfectly suited to productivity and the lights make it a head-turner, as well.
Pixels for Days
If you’re anything like us, you’ve occasionally leaned back in your chair to survey your 3-monitor arrangement and felt underwhelmed. You think, “You know what I need? I need to add a 60-inch display to really get the most out of my computer.” Don’t let anyone say that you’re crazy. We wholeheartedly agree that so much screen space is not only beneficial, as this photo proves, it can look great, too.
Monitors? Where We’re Going We Won’t Need Monitors.
Want a battlestation that’s way outside the box? Try this deskless arrangement on for size. You won’t be settling in for marathon sessions with a VR headset strapped to your face, but the VR experience deserves a battlestation all its own.
At the end of the day, your personality, style and the games you love most will help you determine what your dream setup looks like. Friendly PC may not be able to help you with the aesthetics, but we can make sure your computer performance can handle anything you throw at it.
