Bro Cave: @Aequitaas

This week’s Bro Cave comes from forum user Aequitas. With dual monitors, a SteelSeries headset, a Razer Lachesis mouse, and Razer Lycosa keyboard, it definitely has all the makings of a substantial gaming machine. Add in a green cold cathode and a couple of Red Bulls, and you’re ready for a long gaming session.

Hey guys, my name is Tharindu a.k.a. Aequitas. I’m a Sri Lankan living in Dubai going to an Australian Uni in Malaysia. First thing I gamed on was a Gameboy Colour and then a Playstation 2. Mostly gamed on PCs on and off though. I played games like Fifa, Need For Speed, Cricket, Metal Gear Solid, Hitman, and Counter-Strike 1.6 (which was basically what gamers in Dubai played all day long, even to this day), but I only got a proper PC to game on in 2011.

I started saving up money, stopped spending money on consolol games for my PS3, and ended up with this:

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K
CPU Cooler: Coolermaster V6GT
Motherboard: ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z
Graphics Card: nVIDIA Palit GTX560 Ti 2GB
Memory: Kingston HyperX 2x2GB DDR3 1600MHz
Hard Drive: WD VelociRaptor 10,000RPM
Optical Drive: LG 24X DVD±RW SATA Optical Drive
Power Supply: Cooler Master GX750W
Display: 24″ BenQ G2420HDB
Case: CoolerMaster 690 nVIDIA Edition
Headphones: Razer Carcharias/Steelseries Siberia V2
Speakers: Creative 5.1 Surround
Mouse: Razer Lachesis 5600DPI/Steelseries Sensei
Mouse Pad: Razer Goliathus Alpha Large Speed Edition/Steelseries QcK Mini
Keyboard: Razer Lycosa Mirror Special Edition
Operating System: Windows 7 64-Bit

Unfortunately, my Bro Cave is situated at my place in Dubai, so I can only game during my holidays. :( My parents won’t let me take my rig over to my dorms, and my dad bought me a MacBook Pro to use for Uni, so that I wouldn’t game while I’m there studying. :P

    Thats a big desk. I need one like that

  9. Zeeenith says:

    Excellent cave. When I get around to making my own after I’ve saved up I’m gonna make sure it’s just as tidy. Cluttered spaces drive me nuts.

    By the way that last pic with the cables all over is when I first got the Rig after winning the LAN (more of that story in the Forums).
