We’ve seen many a multi-monitor PC build in our time but this arrangement from Custom PC Facebook community member Casey Steward is definitely among the more extreme examples. It has not two, not three but four monitors, with three of them stacked right on top of each other. What’s more, the top screen is in fact a 45-inch TV! It’s certainly one way to make the most efficient use of your limited desk space, by not using the desk.
Custom PC has been celebrating the best PC builds since 2003, and our Facebook group has over 375,000 members. We’ve seen many custom gaming PCs, from case mods to scratch builds. Here we take a look at Casey’s four-monitor gaming setup.
An amusing and intriguing aspect of this setup is that only two of them are the same. The central bottom screen is a curved 32-inch Samsung Odyssey G7 while the side and middle screens are 27-inch, 144Hz Asus panels, and then of course there’s the Sony Bravia TV on the top.
Normally we’re not overly keen on having TVs set too high up the wall (such as TVs over fireplaces) as it’s often a strain on your neck to view them, but for cranking that recline feature on your office chair the high-angled screen here works rather well.
While the number of monitors would normally be the most eye-catching aspect of this PC build, the final touch is the expert choice of desktop wallpaper in these pictures. Not only is the image invitingly warm in its color palette and artistic in its painterly style but the framing is spot on.
The way the woman is framed by the small central screen then the image widens out via the bottom two screens to show the bed and foreground clutter and then widens again via the large 45-inch TV to show the wide cityscape is perfectly judged. The image was generated using Wallpaper Engine.
As for the PC to which all the screens are attached, it’s a custom build from Alexander PCs that houses an Intel Core i5-13600K CPU, Lian Li Galahad AIO 240 RGB UniFan Edition CPU cooler, Asus TUF Gaming Z790-PLUS WiFi motherboard, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics card, 32GB of Kingston Fury Beast RGB DDR5 RAM, and a 4TB Kingston KC3000 SSD inside a Lian Li Lancool 215 case.
Are you a fan of this sort of vertically-stacked monitor arrangement or is it too much of a neck strain for you? Thanks to Casey Steward for sharing his setup with us.
