Hey everyone, I would like to welcome you all to my computers and electronics blog. I got something really exciting to post about today, I finally was allowed to move my PC into the living room so I can experience my games and movies in their full glory. Of course this means that I had the opportunity to build onto my entertainment system, and thanks to some great deals at http://www.for-sale.co.uk/ I have been able to make the living room look sick. Of course, this works best if you have already put some money into upgrading your PC so that you can now sink some money into the peripherals around it. Here are some tips for hooking up your computer in the living room.

Home Entertainment Centre 

Big LED TV

If you are going to be moving your laptop/desktop computer into your living room so it can be the family entertainment device, you should first make sure that you are not going to be missing out thanks to the new distance from your screen. When we use our computers normally we are only 50 centimeters(more or less) from the screen. Now think about your living room, where the screen is normally a couple meters from where you are sitting. This is why the first thing I bought it a TV over 50 inches. After looking online for a bit I found a really good yet cheap LED 55 inch TV for sale on http://www.for-sale.co.uk/led-tv-55 which looks sharper than my PC screen ever did.

Surround Sound Speakers

If you don’t have these in your living room already, then go look at the speakers for sale at http://www.for-sale.co.uk/surround-sound-speakers and pick one out before you read any further. Okay, done that? Good. Now you just have to wait until they get delivered/you pick them up to realize this should have been done years ago. Make sure that you get Dolby certified speakers, take a look on the Dolby website at https://www.dolby.com/us/en/index.html if you have any question about what that means. If you are going to be watching any acclaimed films or playing some very atmospheric games on your new setup, you will instantly realize how much better it is with surround sound.

Get some Games and Movies!

Now that you have your new home entertainment set up thanks to your relocated computer, it is time to take advantage of it! Purchase some new games with really good graphics (like the new Madden game I talked about in this post http://www.milpixel.com/madden-18-cover-athlete) then put the graphics on high and enjoy. Make sure to get some nice Blu-ray or 4K videos as well, such as the new Planet Earth. The show was recorded in 60FPS cameras so watching it on a big, high definition TV you will notice the change and wow, is it amazing. My latests film actually just finished downloading, so I will have to talk to you all later. Have a good one everyone.
