    Hey everyone im new here and just want to say this is a great community and Im glad I found it! OK first of all a little info about myself. Im a 21 yr old student who also works part time. I live with my parents and my wife who I just got maried to 6 months ago. And also our 2 month old baby boy.I plan on moving out sometime this year into my own place. I have been working on my set up since the begining of 07'. I've been impressed by the set ups I've seen here so I've decided to post my set up to hear what you guys think and what I can do to make it better. Sorry about picture quality had to use a bad camera. -_- lets get started! :smashin:

    First this is what I started with at the beggining of '07

    Then I got my New tv

    I didnt like the way the big tv was on such a small stand so I had to find something else.

    This is my current set up at the moment.

    My Computer Set up

    And finally my futon

    KIT
    42' Panasonic TH-42PX600U Viera plasma
    Xbox 360 premium
    Play station 3 60GB
    Nintendo wii
    Playstation 2
    Dish Network Vip622 HDDVR

    13' Macbook 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo
    Pc running vista Ultimate 2.40Ghz Core 2 Duo 4GB RAM
    22' HP w2207 Monitor
    Creative Inspire T3100

    Thats the set up as of now. I plan on doing a few updates by the end of the month. Im planning on wall mounting the tv and adding some wall mounted glass shelves. If you guys can recommend any shelves that would be great! I am also planning on painting the room a new color and changing the carpet. I would love to hear what colors you guys think would work great. I also want to get a sorund sound system but at the moment with the baby my wife wont let me put the tv past 4 in volume lol So I think im going to have to wait. Let me know what you think! Thanks! :hiya:

    Hi Darko:hiya:
    That's a serious amount of tech you've got in there mate!:eek:

    You said that you would be moving out of your parents this year ? If it was me, I'd wait till then to start a new setup in your new place. It'd be a shame to redecorate the room only to move out to somewhere new don't ya reckon?:thumbsup:

    Nice set up!

    21, student, job, married and baby - Phew, must of been a busy 2007, get ready for 2008:)

    I would do a bit of saving and when the time comes to move then think about upgrade or buying new furniture etc!

    See you like your MECHA!!
    Heres my iccle Gundam!

    looks the part mate, you are in the same situation we found ourselves in when we were younger, had a kid and got married and lived with my mother.

    Feel really happy for you and hope your future is as good as ours has been.

    Best phone I have ever owned!:smashin:

    Yeah my wife was saying the same. I might just keep the room the same color and not change the carpet. I can use that money towards my place when I get it. Thanks for the advise

    It has been a real busy year. Before this I used to be a bum without any worries other than school. Good times :) But now its changed so much. But cant say im not enjoying it.:clap: im saving money whenever i can but furniture is pretty much covered by our parents when we move out. :devil: Nice gundam by the way my wife loves those! Is that car the Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT-APEX from initial d?
    lol I admit the computer is a mess of wires. I really need to sit down one day and sort them out and make it look cleaner. Thanks for the compliment!

    Thanks:D

    It's called object dock
    Thanks kidooneill! We get alot of help from our parents so we are doing fine. So the future looks great.

    lol oh I plan on adding them soon lol:clap:
