Gamer Spends $30,000 To Create The Ultimate Gaming Room

Gamer Spends $30,000 To Create The Ultimate Gaming Room

YouTuber BANKII has shown off his incredible new gaming room, which he's based on his favourite ship from Star Citizen.

There are some people out there who are willing to spend immense amounts of money on their gaming setups. It’s really no wonder that the price of these things tends to rack up so fast though - have you seen what some places will charge for a gaming chair? I mean, come on, a chair’s a chair. It can only be so comfortable.

Anyway, if you’re going to do it, you ought to do it right, and as PC Gamer reports, one gamer certainly has. YouTuber BANKII has spent a whopping $30,000 to create a game room based on his favourite Star Citizen ship. You know, the game that’s raised over $400 million in crowdfunding since 2012, and is still only available to play in Alpha. I digress, anyway, because the room looks genuinely fantastic.

Before you take a look at the $30K room, be sure to have a peek at this incredible gaming setup, created from loads of LED panels.

This wasn’t just about filling a room with some fancy tech though, oh no (although admittedly, he does that too). This was a full-blown construction project - to go all-in on those space shuttle vibes, a steel welded frame had to be made, which was then embellished with wooden panels. Adding to the sci-fi theme, you enter the room (which was built as an extension of the YouTuber’s studio) through automatic sliding doors. 

The “ship’s” interior accounted for the bulk of the cost, at $11,685 (a further $1,700 went towards the automatic doors), but the gaming PC at the heart of the room was super pricey, too. The custom rig, which houses an RTX 3090, cost BANKII $6,650. That’s not to mention his three 65-inch TVs and 49-inch curved display. Just in case that wasn’t enough, the room also features a kitchenette, complete with an air fryer, grill, and kettle, perfect for whipping up any snacks during a particularly long gaming session. 

Now, would I advise that you go out and spend that much money transforming a room into a spaceship? To be honest reader, no, I don’t think you should. But if you do, I reckon the kettle is a good shout.
