Dev/Gaming Machine - 12900K, RTX 3070, 32GB RAM
I've been gradually upgrading my computer over time, so it's kinda like a PC of Theseus now. As a developer, I've always got a bunch of servers running, Docker doing its thing in the background, and tons of browser tabs open. Moving from a 7700K to a 12900K was a huge step up, and the 3070 GPU is just awesome. I'm using 32GB of RAM right now, but I might bump it up to 64GB soon.
Alienware AW3418DW 34" (x2)
Once you go Ultrawide, you never go back. So I got two. 3440x1440 @ 120Hz is the sweet spot for me for productivity and immersive gaming experiences. Will definitely upgrade to the new QD-OLED monitors when I can find a good excuse to do so.
DROP CTRL Mechanical Keyboard
I'm a bit of a keyboard hoarder, but this is my daily driver at the moment. Currently running Kaihua Box White switches (clicky) with HyperX Low-Profile PBT keycaps.
Logitech G Pro X Superlight Mouse
As a former Razer Deathadder user, I was skeptical to try out a Logitech mouse, but I'm glad I did. The G Pro X is a great mouse, extremely light, great battery life, and perfect tracking - albeit quite pricey.
Herman Miller Aeron Chair
If I’m going to slouch in the worst ergonomic position imaginable all day, I might as well do it in a nice chair. Do yourself a favor and buy one used from an office liquidator for a good deal.
Visual Studio Code
Pretty self-explanatory. I use this for everything code-related for web projects. I also made my own theme that is pretty popular, you can check it out here!
Love the new terminal that Microsoft released with Windows 11. I use it for all my terminal needs because it's super easy to open terminals in different environments like Powershell, WSL, and Git Bash.
Yeah yeah yeah I know, I'm a heathen. I use a GUI for Git. I've used the command line frequently in the past, but at this point I just like to look at something pretty to visualize commit history.
I use Figma for literally everything I can for design work. If I need to do something more complex, I use Photoshop.
