While some think of gaming as a way of entertainment purposes only, in the world of e-sports and competitive gaming, it’s not. It’s a way of building a player’s reputation in the world of e-sports by playing tons of hours of game time before going to the big leagues and earning a bag full of cash, assuming the player won the tourney. Just like any other professional gamer, all things have a starting point, and for builder Edgardcastro, it starts with his personal Republic of DOTA2 desktop setup aimed for quick response commands, buttery-smooth animation, and consistently high-quality connection that prevents any potential lag that could cost the game.
When it comes to performance the Republic of DOTA2 battlestation keeps it performing at a high level with the combination of Intel Core i7-7700K 4.2GHz Quad-Core Processor and MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB Founders Edition Video Card to ensure the best gaming performance and quality – a bit overkill when it comes to e-sports gaming but that leaves room for triple AAA games for pure entertainment, capable of playing at 4K resolution. One of the most attention-grabbing parts of the system is the presence of multiple fans in the form of 2x Noctua – NF-S12A ULN 120mm Fan, Noctua – NF-A20 PWM 86.5 CFM 200mm Fan, 2x Noctua – NF-A8 ULN 80mm Fan – made possible by the addition of NZXT AC-GRID-10-M1 Ten Port Fan Hub – all that for keeping it cool throughout the heated battle.
Moving to the outside perspective, painted in black from the desk to the peripherals, the Republic of DOTA2 setup highlights the ginormous LG 34UC79G-B 34.0″ 2560×1080 144Hz Monitor as accompanied by the Logitech G900 CHAOS SPECTRUM Wireless Optical Mouse, Logitech – G Pro Wired Gaming Keyboard, and Mackie – CR3 50W 2ch Speakers. To complete the whole experience, a black gaming chair is present as well along with a wide wall-mounted DOTA2 frame exhibiting each hero from the game.
