    Its such a cool background though! :D That and final Fantasy rocks so meh =P

    Btw, shouldnt we move this to the members area and maybe sticky it? That way more people would see it and read/post :) as not everyone checks this Tech forum.

    Here's mine. Be warned... it's huge. I run a triple display setup (see below), so the wallpaper is split into three.

    wow that must be a huge desk, so how many games support 3 displays like that? I imagine it must add pretty good advantages in games being able to see what your enemies cant until they turn around which will be too late to survive by the time they do that :p

    Most games support it. I've got a few games installed that I've tried it on:

    HAWX
    Oblivion
    ARMAII
    Planetside
    RF Online

    However Call of Duty 4 doesn't support it. It just stretches the image. So I don't get an advantage there :(

    Any MMORPG should be able to support triple display.

    that was a setup thread :p (post your rig/desk and such, which I'll be posting in once I finish moving shit around in my room). My background changes every week, generally more than once. The styles vary a lot. Its often similar to Esk's 'tech style', sometimes its like Fiku's natural style... and sometimes its like mine now. Other times it doesn't have a category.

    Note: if you're looking for a new background, you may want to check out 4chan.org... the site makes me cry inside, but there's very often some wicked backgrounds in the WG (backgrounds and general, or something like that) and HR (high res) boards. You will have to sort through the reposts, porn backgrounds and such, so don't do it at work :p

    EDIT: this probably shouldn't be in tech talk, but gen chat :p

    You get desktops from 4chan? /weep

    I get the majority of mine from deviantart.com... huuuuuge variety of stuff and you can find pretty much whatever your whim is at the moment, or something at least close ;)

    Still by and large one of my favorites is:

    My desktop at home has a couple of random fractals, and my desktop at work is currently being swapped between these two pics:
