Looking for some inspiration for your gaming setup? In this post, we’ve highlighted some of the best gaming setups from around the internet to help you gather some ideas.
Most gamers are content firing up their gaming PC or their console and jumping into their favorite games. However, there are other gamers out there who like to take their experience one step further by creating incredible spaces to play their games in.
And, while every gamer has their own setup, there are some people whose setups traverse the typical couch/TV or desk/PC configuration and transcend into God-level gaming setups. In this post, we’ve covered a handful of the best and most interesting gaming setups from around the internet. So, if you’re looking to pull some inspiration from other gamers’ amazing setups, check out the content below.
Everything in this setup is awesome; the desk, the peripherals, and the gaming chair.
But, of course, what really sets this computer setup apart is what’s right next to the desk: a tall server rack from Kijiji.
Right inside of this server rack, there are two servers, as well as a gaming PC.
Each one of those machines is contained within the server rack, making this a very organized setup.
The two servers rely on similar components: a Xeon 1230 V2, 8GB of RAM, along with an assortment of HDDs and SSDs.
Right above the two servers, there’s the gaming PC. This gaming PC consists of a GTX 970 graphics card, 32GB of RAM, and a Ryzen 3700X processor, all of which are contained within a Coolermaster Q300L mini-ITX PC case.
Out of all the PC gaming setups in this list, “The Gum Ball PC” is easily the most unique.
The PC in this setup is built directly into a repurposed gumball machine.
None of these components were shared on the Reddit post. But, based on comments made by the OP, it sounds like this PC can play most modern games very well. And, to ensure proper cooling, the gumball machine is fitted with three fans.
In the section of the gumball machine where the gumball’s come out, u/stlcaddie has strung RGB lights to further enhance the look of his setup.
The lights come together to create a cool candy-colored aesthetic that goes well with the gumball machine theme.
The dim lighting, sparse color scheme, and organization on display make for a sleek, clean, and comfortable look in Reddit user u/Jpdots’ gaming setup.
This gaming PC in this setup consists of a Coolermaster NR200P case, an RTX 3080 graphics card, a Ryzen 5 5600X CPU, 32GB of RAM, and a 3TB of total storage.
To enhance the comfort this setup offers, u/Jpdots uses the extremely high-end Herman Miller/Logitech Embody gaming chair.
As far as gaming/office chairs go, this is one of the most expensive options on the market. But, it’s also very flexible and exceptionally comfortable, making it a great choice for those who sit for long hours, as well as a great addition to this simple, comfortable setup.
This PC setup, along with everything else on display, is contained within a van. A van that’s been converted into a very cozy mobile home.
Everything about this setup, and the van itself, allows for a comfortable experience that is meant to feel just like home.
As for the PC specifications, the user who posted this setup didn’t share those.
But, with that being said, they did share the names of some of their peripherals…
Some of these peripherals and specifications include an MSI gaming monitor, a Razer BlackWidow keyboard, a Razer DeathAdder mouse and, for an external SSD, this user relies on a Samsung T5 1TB Portable SSD.
This gaming setup is powered by a Maxoak Bluetti 500WH Power Station, which is connected to a couple of solar panels attached to the top of the van.
To keep the setup nice and stable, both the monitor and desk are mounted to the wall.
We’ve featured this setup in our post on wall-mounted PCs, and it’s so awesome that it makes it this list of the top gaming setups from around the internet.
Some of the specs this PC setup offers as follows: an Intel Core I9-7980XE, two Nvidia 1080TI’s, 128GB of RAM, along with a 1600W PSU from EVGA.
Rather than relying on just one PC, this user relies on three. All three of these PCs rely on similar components, giving them each an enormous amount of power.
Each one of the components these PCs rely on culminates in a 48-core workstation that is great for intense 3D rendering, as well as being able to play any game out there.
The word “sleek” is a great descriptor for this particular gaming setup.
Sleekness permeates every facet of this gaming setup, from the desk to the gaming PC, to how the setup is organized.
To enhance that particular theme, the space this setup is located within consists of muted colors and clean materials.
The gaming PC at the center of this setup relies on an AMD Ryzen 9 3950X processor, an RTX 2080 Ti graphics card, 64GB of RAM, and 8TB of SSD storage.
Some gaming setups have a particular theme that can be seen in their design and aesthetic.
You can probably figure out what the theme of this setup is just by glancing at the picture.
A heavy emphasis on cool colors and muted lighting, along with the concrete walls and desktop wallpaper, makes for a setup that looks as if it’s located in a basement, somewhere in the Arctic.
But, according to the Reddit user who posted this setup, that isn’t quite the case.
Every Summer, the components within the gaming PC – none of which are stated – generate so much heat that a portable AC is necessary to keep the space cool.
Symmetry and elegance serve as the core elements of this particular setup.
A great example of both elements is the wooden sound diffuser right above the desk.
Rather than relying on a regular sound diffuser, which looks nice enough, this user chose to invest in a wooden sound diffuser with a more symmetrical design and a prettier aesthetic.
A similar emphasis on symmetry and elegance can be seen on the desk below the diffuser, the chair right in front of the desk, as well as the shelves on both sides of the desk.
Each one of these elements culminates in a setup that just looks and feels right.
As for what’s inside of the high-end gaming PC, there is an RTX 2070 graphics card, 32GB of RAM, and an Intel Core-i5 CPU.
An incredible view of Brooklyn serves as one of the most unique elements of this setup.
Outside of this view, though, the rest of the setup is simple and comfortable.
The two ultrawide monitors, as well as the smaller monitor to the right, offer plenty of screen real-estate, which is great for performing multiple tasks at once.
To the right of those monitors, there is a Corsair case (the Crystal 570X). Inside of this case, there’s an Intel Core i5-8600K processor, an RTX 2080 graphics card, 16GB of RAM, a 2TB Seagate HDD, and a 500GB Samsung Evo SSD.
Like a few of the other setups we’ve looked at, this one has a very particular theme.
A theme that we can define as “early 2000s PC gaming”.
Everything this setup offers—except for the monitor—goes along with that theme.
But, despite what the eMachines case may suggest, this setup offers some excellent hardware.
Inside the eMachines case, there are two Xeon E5-2667 V2S processors and a GTX 1080 Ti graphics card.
These components, along with the various others this computer relies on, are connected to an older LGA2011 motherboard. This is because newer motherboards were unable to fit inside of the case.
Even though the motherboard is somewhat dated, this PC can handle most games with ease.

Hey Max! I like your writing style…concise, honest, straight to the point…none of the extra, unnecessary comments. Above is the link to my gaming setup. It may not be cutting edge or minimalist (It’s commonly described as CIA, NASA, overkill, extra, extreme, or “unnecessary”, and people just love to hate it because it has more than the “standard” 3 screens in most setups), but I hope this is qualified enough to be featured on your list. It’s powered by a single OMEN 15 2020 laptop – Ryzen 7 4800H processor, 16Gb RAM, 1Tb SSD, GTX 1660ti discrete graphics with 6Gb VRAM. It drives 8 displays (plus its own, for a total of 9) through the strategic use of a combination of a miniDP hub, USB video converters, and USB 3.0 hubs. The ASUS Ultrabook you see on the right (4th Gen i7, 8Gb RAM, discrete nVidia GeForce 760M w/ 2Gb, 1Tb SSD) acts only as a backup system and is not connected to any of the displays. Its only connection to the main system is via Input Director which allows me to control it when I need to. A 1Tb external SSD along with a is tucked away underneath the keyboard on the right. There’s also a BluRay/DVD-ROM drive connected just in case I need to go “old school”. I’ve experimented with several display configurations and settled with this one which ensures that all displays receive appropriate bandwidth and are able to run at their optimal refresh rates. An upgrade to a full-fledged desktop system is in the planning stage.
