Setup Tour Showdown – Ep 9 | Budget Gaming Setups! 😱
I set up to a showdown review. The setups you guys sent me and give my feedback and if you want to submit your setup for the series you can find this mission guide video down below now. For today’s setups they’re from connor alex brendan ethan and thomas. Thank you for submissions guys, as i very much appreciate it, but without further ado, let’s get right into the video. Now starting off. We got connor from new jersey, he’s 13 years old and uses his setup for gaming, but he also mentioned that he will start video editing when he gets a new computer, but getting to the equipment. He has a 24 inch lg tv for his laptop display and then a 22 inch scepter monitor for his xbox one x. As for his peripherals he’s, actually using a dell keyboard and mouse combo that he found laying around in his house, which is actually a good way to save money at 13 år gammel, and when it comes to audio, he has some turtle beach recons that he got From walmart now that’s all the information he gave besides the rgb lights, he got for his desk, but let’s talk about the setup as a whole, starting off with the cable management, which is pretty bad, despite not really having too many things in the setup. There’S tons of chords everywhere and it’s obvious that conor didn’t attempt to cable manage it at all which, if you had asked my personal opinion, i would most likely recommend reorganizing the cord, so they’re not tangled and get a cable sleeve or even get a cable rack To put underneath the desk, and although the equipment is kind of on the budget side, the setup is pretty okay for a 13 year old, but i would like to see an upgrade for a better quality desk along with a new pc when he gets it up.
Næste, we got alex from minnesota he’s 14 and uses his setup for gaming and streaming, but getting to the equipment. He has two 24 tommer: 144 hertz msi monitors and for peripherals. He has the steel series apex 5 tastatur, along with the razer mamba wireless mouse, on an l, ferrier keys, koi mouse pad and for audio. He has a fine t669 for his microphone, which appears to be on a boom on spray painted white and then uses the corsair void pro as his headset and holding up all his equipment is an ikea lin mod with an alex drawer stand and for his chair. He’S using one of ewin’s racing chairs, that’s red, but after going over all the equipment, it’s time for the pc specs and as of specs he’s rocking the rtx 2060, a resin 5 2600 16 gigabytes of crucial ballistics ram, -en 120 gigabyte ssd and a one terabyte Hard drive all inside the dark flash case now, although the specs are decent i’m, not really a fan of the color scheme going on inside the pc as he’s using some red and black cable extensions inside a white and black themed case, which i guess he was Trying to go for a red white black theme for the whole setup when it comes to his headset and his chair, but thing is it’s quite hard to use three colors in a setup and have it look quite good. But in this case, i kind of find this overall color scheme kind of confusing, but now moving on to the cable management is actually quite neat and organized and with the way the cords are positioned, i think he did a pretty good job with what he had, Which, if i had to recommend anything, i would probably recommend getting a cable box along with some cable sleeves if you want to make the chords disappear.
But besides the cable management, i think alex did a good job with his setup. But i would recommend improving the color scheme up next. We got brendan from connecticut he’s 14 and uses this setup for gaming streaming and school work, but getting to the equipment. He has a dual monitor setup with one curved 24 tommer. Scepter monitor and one 22 inch monitor from element for peripherals. He has the rk61, with gateron brown switches and for the mouse he has the logitech g502 hero and finally for audio. He has a stealth 600 from turtle beach. Nu, looking at the equipment so far, it’s pretty alright, but nothing too special. But the one thing that does look interesting to me is the makeshift wrist rest for his keyboard, which i’m pretty sure is made out of legos, Som, efter min mening, i really like it. When people find creative ways to make do with what they got because in the end, you’re saving money now as of right now, brandon does not have a desktop pc, but instead a simple laptop using a ryzen 3 apu, which powers his left monitor while its right One is powered by his xbox, so hopefully in the future he will be able to save enough money for a desktop pc. But now moving on to the cable management similar to the last setup is quite well managed and i could be super picky about it. But with the way the power surge is, this was probably the best way he could set it up, but now let’s talk about the setup overall.
I actually really like how he went with the green and white theme, especially with the custom desk, as the brown kind of helps bring everything together and kind of stands out with the white accents from his console and his keyboard, though i’m, not too sure about the Game covers on the wall, which that’s pretty much personal preference, but i do love how he displays some of his tech on the wall, along with his nerf guns, as it does help add a bit of personality into the setup. But the thing that i don’t like about the overall setup is the fact that the shoes and stuff are on the floor right next to the setup which they should be put up in a closet or somewhere else. But nevertheless i like the color scheme going on in brandon’s setup and hopefully he saves up for a pc now near the end. We got ethan from scotland he’s 14 and uses this setup mostly for gaming and school work. But first looking at the setup, we can see that he’s rocking a red and black theme with a bunch of team merch. In the background for a football team, i believe now he’s using a single asus monitor for his display red dragon k551 as his keyboard and a gaming mouse from havoc and in terms of audio. He has the corsair hs35, has his headset and uses the gs520 speakers in red dragon and if you’re curious about his desk he’s using an ikea lin man with adult legs and similar to the last setup, he has a laptop as his pc.
But he did mention that he’s gon na buy a pc and a larger desk on his birthday, but now for the cable management. It’S really good, as everything’s out of sight and out of mind, plus it’s quite neatly organized. So i definitely give him props for that. But with all that, out of the way, let’s talk about the setup overall now i do like how he has the red and black theme going on for the setup, nice lighting and etc, but i can’t help but feel super claustrophobic. Looking at the pictures, mostly for the fact that this whole room is full of banners and other items now, although it’s good to show off your hobbies and show off things, you like in your room, i think it’s important to not overdo it per se. And i know some people may disagree, but for me i kind of wish it was. Maybe some space on the wall, or whatever also the pillow in the chair, has to go because it just looks disgusting and i would just recommend getting an actual chair, pillow or cushion, but overall in terms of the setup, i do like the color scheme and cable Management but i would possibly recommend turning down the decorations in the room by a notch or so mostly because it feels super confined with everything on the walls but that’s, just my personal opinion and then last but not least, we got thomas from ireland he’s 14 and Uses his setup for editing, videos streaming and gaming, but straight into the setup he’s using a single 24 tommer, 75hz monitor from lg uses a logitech prodigy keyboard, along with a wireless mouse from acer and for audio.
He uses jvc maroon headphones and holding up all his equipment is the ikea mickey desk of shelves, which i like how he utilizes shelves with different tech but i’m, not a fan of the headphones being stored on the top right corner. Også, if you can see, he has two cameras with them being the gopro hero 6 and the canon powershot, along with a ring light that he uses for his streams. But now let’s talk about his pc as a specs. He has the gtx 1650, an i5 9400 clocked at 4, Gigahertz 16 gigabyte ram, and then he has a 256 gigabyte ssd and a one terabyte hard drive all inside a dell inspiron case and with those specs he said that he gets about 100 fps on High settings for most games so as a specs they’re, pretty alright, but i guess i would recommend maybe getting a new case for your next pc upgrade just make it look cooler and now. Moving on to the cable management is quite good, as he hides him in the cable rack underneath his desk. So you can barely see any cords, though i’m, not a fan of all the cables from his headset and mouse right next to the setup which speaking of that area, you got ta clear, school stuff from there just because you got to keep the area around your Gaming setup clean, but looking at the setup overall, i do like how it’s simple, but not too blame with the tech on the shelves, but i think that you should possibly upgrade your desk to a slightly bigger one without shelves up top and instead install shelves on The wall for a cleaner, more open look because the desk does seem kind of confined, but besides that, i think the setup is alright, but it could possibly use a certain color scheme to make it stand out more, but guys that’s going to wrap it up.
