PC VR Hardware

My Virtual Reality hardware setup and specs for when meat-space is just too much. I use my Valve Index for most of my PCVR needs and VRChat. It is currently my primary HMD. The Meta Quest 3 is used for media consumption, Quest exclusive games, and sometimes PCVR via wireless Steam Link. I also will use my Quest 3 as my Sim Racing HMD.


PC Hardware

Each of the following machines was custom built and configured by me.


Moonshine - Game Monster

My primary PC gaming and VR rig.


Sonic - How may I serve you?

Sonic is my NAS (network attached storage) workhorse. It's main purpose file (SMB) and media serving (Plex). It also hosts this website from a Debian QEMU VM. It is powered by the fantasic UnRaid OS (Linux Based).


RacerX - Simulation Rig

I built this dream project to have a sit down force feedback racing simuator seat. More than just a computer, this is a full racing experience.

The racing simulation rig hardware that is connected to the above computer.


This little white box of awesome is built to run classic console emulators using RetroArch and play retro style games on Steam.


Computing needs, on the go.


Clank - "Does this thing still work?"

Clank has been retired. I no longer keep this one connected. The machine still exists, but it has been placed into storage. These days I can recreate most of what I used to do on it via emulation.


Puter Archive

Here are the specs of puters from long, long time ago. Maintained for historical accuracy.
