Gear

Here is a list of all the hardware and software that I use on a regular basis: Both for this site and in my personal life. I’ve always enjoyed reading other people’s list and researching what will fit my needs (or just be rad to have). So I wanted to make and share my own list.

Computer

I use a Late 2017 MacBook Pro 15” with a 3.1GHz Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD, and Radeon Pro 560 graphics. It is plugged into two older HD televisions; one horizontal, one vertical. I really need a dedicated monitor. I use two dongletown Satechi adapters. I back my computer and my two external drives to BackBlaze.

I use a Keychron K2 Keyboard with red switches and a Logitech MX Master 3. I have a Blue Yeti with a USB Micro to USB-C cable. I use Audio-Technica ATH-M40X headphones to listen through the Yeti. I also have a Canon TS9120, which is a nifty printer.

Video Games

I currently have a PS4 Pro (The Last of Us Part II Edition) with a first generation PS VR headset connected, a 1TB Xbox One, and a launch Nintendo Switch with a 128GB micro SD card installed.

For the rest of my consoles and games, check them out here.

For capturing game footage, I have an Elgato 4K60S+, an Elgato Game Capture HD 60s, and an Elgato Game Capture HD. I keep the older model around for its ability to capture analog video from older game systems. 

The TV I use is a LG C9 55″ 4K OLED plugged into a 5.1 surround sound system I got from my dad. 

I also have a Sony Trinitron KV-27FS12 that my wife graciously lets me keep in the living room for my older consoles.
