The M1 Mac mini and gaming PC share a massive amount of screen space [Setups]

Who says the M1 Mac mini and fast gaming PC can’t get along? Macs aren’t known to excel at gaming, so it’s only natural that many people keep a Mac along with a tricky gaming machine. These days it’s easy to switch back and forth, as we’ll see in today’s computer setup that features a massive TV screen and a much more modest screen.

Professional marketer and Redditor ghostintheshell recently made a post titled “Mac Mini M1 + PC Setup”. In it, they list the massive Mac mini with 16GB of built-in RAM and a fairly spacious 2TB solid state drive (SSD).

M1 Mac mini is compatible with monster . gaming computer

Hey, you thought a powerful M1 Mac mini like this could definitely be used for gaming. But Ghost has bigger ambitions in gaming. So they took the Corsair 5000D Airflow Tempered Glass ATX Mid Tower case and filled it with game-worthy goodies.

Inside the box of the Corsair gaming computer is a 12-core 5900X processor, 64GB of RAM, a 2TB NVMe SSD, and XFX Speedster MERC319 AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Graphics Card in Black.

That’s a lot of gaming PCs. Computers like this can be giving Macs poor gaming performance. That’s not to say that Macs need a lot of help in this department.

Real Estate Huge Screen

Ghost uses its hardware with two screens, the LG Smart TV large screen and LG Ultrafine screen in portrait (portrait) mode. They said they recently used a 49-inch curved screen, but all the “back and forth” rotation affected the neck. And now they feel they are in control of more screen real estate.

As you can see in the picture, the 48-inch LG 48CX Smart OLED TV is a beast to keep on your desktop. Built for gaming, the 4K AI-powered machine features Nvidia G-Sync, FreeSync, and a native 120Hz refresh rate for smooth motion and minimal lag.

Without sagging either, the left 32-inch 4K HDR Ultrafine LG 4K HDR Ultrafine monitor rests in portrait mode on the LG Ergo stand. It features HDR 10 compatibility and a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels that operates at 60 Hz.

Easy connection, plus system and screen switching

When asked if they had any issues connecting USB-C from a Mac mini to a 32-inch LG monitor, Ghost said no, it works just fine. They use a Mac mini with a large LG Smart TV via an HDMI cable.

Since they use both computers for work and a PC for gaming as well, they said they’re running a “dual instance of Windows on the PC to keep things separate.”

For management using one set of input devices with two computers, Ghost uses Synergy software. To switch between screens, they use the LG TV remote control.

“LG has a remote control like a TV,” Ghost said. “I just switch the inputs this way. It’s a bit annoying but I don’t switch often. I usually watch to my left and work on the main one.”

Great audio and input devices

Ghost has an impressive array of audio equipment. They come with a Blue Yeti microphone and stand, a Schiit headphone amplifier and a digital-to-analog converter (DAC), and Sennheiser HD650 over-ear headphones.

There’s also a NovelKeys NK65 mechanical keyboard with Silent Alpaca keys and Drop Laser keycaps.

Alongside the well-equipped keeb is a fully-lit white Corsair M65 RGB Elite FPS gaming mouse. It has a . extensionAdvanced optical gaming sensor. it’s tThe unabled weight system allows you to adjust the mouse’s center of gravity to suit your grip and even reduce its weight. There’s even a “precision sniper button” to kill things, you know.

Two more screens, mostly for fun

And you might notice two interesting elements that many commenters have asked about – the two smaller screens in the image, one above and one below the vertical screen on the left.

The top is a Divoom Pixoo-Max Pixel screen for adjustable decor purposes. You can control the image. Here it appears to display the time. Below is the LaMetric Time Wi-Fi watch, which Ghost calls “a pretty cool tool.” For their own reasons, they offered her “$295.21”.
