H3rotic

Cool build! May it serve you well. Also where can I get that wallpaper?


Fit_Parfait_2386

I got it on Wallpaper Engine, you can buy it on steam its cheap :)


Dr-chemical

What’s the wallpaper called?


Fit_Parfait_2386

Summer night in Japan


1inchwang

Thanks!


H3rotic

thanks


N-aNoNymity

Wallpaper engine eats 40% of my GPU on desktop (1070 6GB) so I cant really use it, so annoying


aisergen

Try not running it in 200fps and max graphics


SupraRose

I’d say your just using a really GPU intensive wallpaper. One with too many particles, or objects moving, will do that.


SerbianWolf1976

Works extra fine on my AMD FX 8350, 16 Gb ram and 1060 6 Gb. Try reinstalling it?


emrednz07

wallpaper engine barely uses any of my GPU?


Askyl

Reinstall and try another wallpaper. That does not sound right.


Chicken_Parm_Calzone

~~Specs on the gun?~~ Just read the title and saw it wasn't real. Bummer, man.


Fit_Parfait_2386

LMAOO I use it as a fidget spinner when I'm bored or when I'm watching a video on youtube

Classic american fidget spinner


Fit_Parfait_2386

A NON-AMERICAN, WITH A GUN THEMED ITEM... IMPOSSIBLE

Classic Serbian fidget spinner


PapaStalinthe2nd

Ahh yes Yugoslavia is also like America


SkepticSepticYT

Try some cheap balisong(butterfly) knives off of amazon, they make dull versions which are really fun to fidget with


ReikoHazuki

But why? Isn't a fully loaded gun a better fidget spinner? It has the benefit of being Russian roulette too if you're bored.. /s


bread-on-wheels69

Well it isn’t russian roulette when its a semi auto pistol then its just „russian”

SkepticSepticYT

Eh... cant argue with that


HyperBlasterV2

A glock. Those are the specs.


DisastrousInitial149

The gun on your desk hints about how you earned all that money...


Fit_Parfait_2386

Shh 🤫


HELL_S2K

How do kids earn so much fucking money to afford something like this at that age? I'm 29 getting paid 20 an hour and still I can barely afford to pay my cellphone bill so I can look at this pic on reddit and get humiliated by a 17 year old kid and his badass PC I'm so fucking tired of life for fucks sake Nice Set up btw kid, well done


alegor2

Brother not having to pay bills helps a lot. I have a 16yo son who works at Macdonald and is building his own pc. Making $400 a week with no bills is the way to go.


LeMoofins

I did it when I was 14. Really not hard when you don't have to pay for things like groceries and bills.


vurjin_oce

Not to mention they still get birthday money or presents. So some of the parts could of literally been given.


DowntownPhotograph

Not having to pay rent helps a lot lol


lininop

As people are saying, no bills. But also the specs of the pc aren't like crazy or anything. Not talking shit to the kid, the specs are fine but it's not like they are spoiled with an i5 4th Gen and an Rx580.


LucaDarioBuetzberger

Living with the parents, meaning you gave to pay very little rent and probably very little for anything else. Save mone, where you can. Don't drink unnecessarily alcohol, don't smoke, don't eat in restaurants all day, try entertaining yourself for cheap (not going into e.g amusement parks with friends every month). And most importantly, don't buy stuff you don't absolutely need or want. Over 95% of stzff people buy is crap they don't need or want. If I want to buy something, I wait at least half a year. If I still want it and think I am going to use it enough (1 dollar per hour is a good averge), I will consider buying it. I am 23 and have in comparison to my friends by far the smallest sallary. I saved by a huge difference the most. Nearly 100k. Just by not spending the money. I am not greedy in any kind. I am just smart about what I have. I also started investing.


Shellpawy

I've saved a shit ton of money by not buying excessive food, or any alcohol at all Making sure you keep track of your spendings also helps a lot


Silver-Sampler

To be fair he prob dosent pay rent or food or anything. But yeah great job on the setup👍


Shellpawy

Here in Switzerland we have paid apprenticeships wich you can do after school (usually you're around 15) Takes 4 years, you learn a profession by doing, and get paid for it


bhamann31

Bc we don’t got bills. I’m also 17 and I make just over a grand from my job every two weeks, and a couple hundred from my side hustles and odd jobs every week. Half of all my money goes to college savings, 25% goes towards my savings account and the rest I get gas, food, new vinyl, or work on my setup with

Napalm_Death1989

prob robbed a few pc stores


Fit_Parfait_2386

Lmaoo worked for it dw


daqwid2727

Looks nice, and i see you are using taskbarX (i assume). Only thing is that I'm desktop purist, and hate when there are icons on the desktop! I love the vertical screen tho, i had a huge 40 (something) screen set up vertically at my previous job, and for spreadsheets and blueprints on that screen it was ideal (regular screen beside it was for 3D modeling). I'm not sure how useful this can be for gaming, but probably depends on the games you are playing.


Fit_Parfait_2386

Well my icons were also not there but i didn't like always having to go thru 5 folders to enter a game or something so i just did this


mztrmik

You can download a [program](https://autohidedesktopicons.en.lo4d.com/windows) that will automatically hide your desktop icons after a few seconds. You'll just have to click on the desktop for the icons to show up again. Also, you could turn down the opacity of the desktop icons in wallpaper engine for a cleaner look.


19thCenturyBoy

Thx for the tip


mztrmik

Glad I helped!


SuperCool_Saiyan

victorybell22

The words "desktop purist" make me somehow angry, sad, and cringe all at the same time


Shellpawy

"purist" anything is pretty cringe


BP_Oil_Chill

I love my vertical screen. I often have two windows up on it while I'm gaming on the main one. Browser for info or music, discord, recording/streaming software, etc.


FeederPiet

So your desktop serves no purpose at all?


daqwid2727

It serves the most important function of desktop - style and looks.


FeederPiet

I can respect that


Webmets

Just for you, a [screenshot](https://stu.pidme.me/ignUHIn2V) of me desk

Oh sweet lord...

SAROMON1989

Working for your parents is considered earning on your own? It's ok.


Fit_Parfait_2386

Check the schooling system in Germany buddy


SAROMON1989

You get paid going to school?


Fit_Parfait_2386

Well yeah technically


SAROMON1989

This is what we call a knife with two blades.


Fit_Parfait_2386

Why


SAROMON1989

You either get spoiled or this is the only way to go to school (money and not knowledge), or either learn how being adult works and you get prepared on early ages how adult live really is and value what you got from your work.

Why do you wake up, and decide to be an ass to everyone else and yourself. You’re name fits the bill. Do everyone else a favor, and stop being an ass.


lilhawk40

Don’t mention that you worked for it = daddy’s money Mention that you earned it yourself = shit post Makes sense

Congratulations man! Btw really love the wallpaper, where can I find it?


Fit_Parfait_2386

NF_99

Are you hinting that you used the gun to rob someone and use the money to buy a PC? :D


botnetboi8080

sweet setup dude!


miss-pariah

Better than mine. Need moar pictures!

Nice work Homie! Now get Dark Souls III and git gud!


bigdog12395

Hell yea! Looks like a solid build!!!!!


Existing_Dog5510

I dunno man, gun looks pretty real to me. Jokes aside, congrats, i just have a shitty laptop that doesnt even run minecraft without optifine, so congrats on the setup :)


The-Requiem

Well done Kid. May you have much more!


jwannem

bobo76565657

large_waffle69

Funny that you think people care that your 17


Fit_Parfait_2386

It’s okay dude


iceblade1365

what's with the appeal of vertical monitors?


Fit_Parfait_2386

Wdym


iceblade1365

I see a lot of people use vertical monitors in their build and was wondering why they choose that over double horizontal monitor


Fit_Parfait_2386

Well to me its useful because i edit pictures in photoshop and they are usually vertical so i can see them fully without zooming out and this just doesn’t look basic to me idk about you


ArjunGandotra14

damn that's one of the cleanest PCs I've ever seen. Gotta say that's a minimalist paradise, with plenty of vertical space cuz my desk has a lot of horizontal space but that is useless cuz it has comparatively less vertical space and I cant keep both my books and keyboard don the desk at the same time. Also how did you earn enough for a PC.


Fit_Parfait_2386

In Germany when you want to be let’s say Electrician, you find a company which will school you and everything and you get paid around 800 a month and since i don’t have any expenses i spent all my money on this and let me tell you this setup i really cheap compared to other ones so yeah


kpr07

>In Germany you said you are from Serbia


Fit_Parfait_2386

I am but i live in germany


bl4ckmagik

Looks cool! Try to put the cables together and it'll look much better. Good job!

Fit_Parfait_2386

Well my pc is really nit that good i can play most of the newer games on medium ingot Rx580 nitro+ 8gb then Intel processor 4th gen 3,3ghz and 16gb ram and monitors are cheap samsung 24 inch curved ones but they are perfect for me
