So great to see all your fantastic setups!

I love the fact that there are still people out there who treasure their N64s. It's still my favourite console and has my favourite controller.

I especially love the Rare & Nintendo 1st party 3D platformers. I've just completed Conker again & am half way through Banjo Tooie. I'd never completed Tooie back in the day & have just reached the parts of the game that I haven't played yet so it's really enjoyable to be having a completely fresh and new experience of a game made by Rare in their prime!

Here's mine:

It comprises:

A very low use Sony 25" Trinitron (very hard to find one these days with such low hours - nice sharp image)
RGB modded NTSC & PAL N64's
Wii
Gamecube
Brand new N64 and Gamecube controllers (to guarantee they haven't been abused & have tight sticks)
All official leads, controllers and accessories.
All the games I love.
All tucked away in a cupboard for my wife's benefit.

I'm not a collector, I just want to play my favourite games with the best possible image quality.
I have backups of the components that will wear out (low-use CRT displays, new controllers, backup consoles) so I can play my N64 as I first remembered it when I'm old.
All the N64 controllers have ceramic grease applied from new, which extends their life considerably (guide: http://www.mmmonkey.co.uk/nintendo-64-control-pad-repair/).

I really hope more people post their setups on here :)

Even though they look OK in the ads, most of the larger TVs have soft images as they were often used as main living room TVs for years. It's hard to find them with crisp images - I had to go through loads for mine. The 20" models tended to be used much less - often as bedroom or guest room TVs so are often less used and sharper.

The image in that photo looks great - the 20" size is nice for the N64 as well as the image is a little tighter than on a big CRT, not to mention the fact that Toshiba's have great tubes!
