FPS from the couch??

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Love to game on my 50" screen. I do it with the keyboard in my lap and mouse on a little table to my side. Never seem to do as good though as from my desk. How do you guys have it setup?

but if you really want to game like that, i guess figure out the height you sit at on your pc, and then the height your mouse and keyboard is it, and build a swing round desk to replicate it, my thoughts presonally

While games are fun on the 50" plasma I have, I'd have to say its harder because my eyes must travel a bit farther to see something on the screen. I mean only slightly but for multi competition it matters.

Those both suck. Looks great on the big screen though. The desk thing is an option. I know some people use trays and stuff.
