Great PC, it's laughed at everything I've thrown at it (admittedly that's not too much), love gaming in widescreen now that I have acclimatised to it. Components are a good quality brand but the case was selected from the lower price range but it looks good under my desk. My only real issue was with the emails I got regarding delivery - it was delivered within the estimated time but by this stage I had had several emails telling me it would be delivered the next day - the tracking number said it spent several days in Manchester and another few in transit from Manchester
Another headset recommendation here, the Sennheiser GAME ONE is presented to us next as an open-back light weighted design that is not only built for enhanced comfort but also provides a crystal-clear sound. Featuring a suitable volume control conveniently located near the headsets ear cups as well as plush velour covered XXL ear pads, these combine to make this one another addition to the best gear for gaming list for those with a bit of larger budgets than our previous headset pick.
Gaming headsets zijn vet en helpen je om in een competitieve game helemaal in de game te duiken. Maar bij sommige games, zoals The Witcher 3 of de nieuwe Red Dead Redemption 2, wil je graag de spelwereld ervaren. Een goede set gaming speakers neemt je dan in de hele ruimte mee naar deze levendige werelden. Veel gaming speakers hebben ook nog weer de verlichting die je op de game of de rest van je RGB setup afstelt.

Most LED Light strips you can purchase have a very sticky 3M adhesive on the back. Which makes them pretty hard to reapply to somewhere else if you end up being unhappy with where you put them originally. So we decided to do some testing and figure out a few pretty solid ways to use our gaming lights so maybe you'll have a few more ideas on your mind in case your first idea just doesn't cut it. 
still my PC to this day, i just love it, the red lights and the performance compared to the price i paid a while back is very good. Too bad it came with one piece of ram not working. So instead of 16gb i have 8gb working but i didn't bothered to replace it, to much time to waste and i need my PC on a daily basis. I will recommend it to anyone, just make sure you test everything on the first day if it works properly!!

While $50 is pretty steep, the EDGE Gyro has color changing LEDs that reflect the amount of resistance. Trying to chase the elusive mint-green (final level) is a fun challenge that will keep you coming back, and more importantly strengthening your wrists. Or you can go to Body Logix' booth at CES and fail at getting mint green so many times they just give you one to go away. It worked for me. I just couldn't advance past that damn purple!


Unlike many hardcore gamers, I prefer to hide game boxes, and like to the downloadable versions of titles rather than a physical disc. As for all the discs I do have, I like to keep it in a space efficient and simple disc album. I believe it’s smart to do this even if you like to display your collection because the convenience of keeping all your games in one spot, easily browsable versus combing through disc cases and boxes.
Cords are an unfortunate reality of modern technology, but in the last few years several organization solutions have appeared to helped those helplessly drown in cable clutter. One of our longtime favorites is the stylish Bluelounge CableBox, a clever answer to many who want to focus on the game rather than stray wires. If the CableBox is either too big / too small, Bluelounge has a wide range to fit any homeowners requirements, with IKEA’s FIXA cable management ideal for tying up any loose ends to bundle bunches together.

A PC alone does not a gamer make. For the ultimate gaming setup, you need the right tools. You want to start with the right gaming mouse for you. We listed a couple of things to look out for and a couple of good choices. Ultimately, it comes down to individual choice as each person will look out for different features in their gaming mouse. The input machine for any computer, the keyboard, is another important choice. There is a lot to consider when choosing a gaming keyboard. Light up or not, ergonomics, price, and style are all important considerations. Lastly, you need great sound when playing the latest titles. Choosing a gaming headset is a tough choice but we made it a little easier for you. Just make sure it will fit right and sound good and you will have a great gaming setup.


You have two basic options here, as with any other internet connectivity: wired or wireless (wi-fi). Being even half a second out of sync with others while playing can ruin a game, so it's important to minimise lag. A wired connection helps to keep speeds higher and lag to a minimum, more so than connecting via wi-fi. If you want to test your internet speed, there are many online tools to help you do so.
It’s easy to see why sound bars are replacing larger home theater audio systems. They’re cheaper, require less cables, can fit into almost any size room, and easily adapt to a wide range of hardware like tablets and smartphones thanks to Bluetooth connectivity. When it comes to quality, price, (and style) Sony’s HT-CT260 is one of the best in its class and the model I recommend.
I bought this keyboard and mouse combo for my Sister who doesn't like wireless keyboards and mice because of the trouble they can cause. I am delighted with this set especially in view of the price. You get a really good quality keyboard and mouse in this Microsoft pack. Both products install very easily together with some really useful software that gives you considerable control over both the keyboard and mouse. The keyboard has a positive, tactile feel as well as a number of customised keys that work with Windows 7 - one of the advantages of this being Microsoft's own hardware. The keyboard also works without any of the lag that I've experienced with wireless keyboards.
This setup is for the fan of Gundam, a Japanese anime. It is made pretty obvious with the actions figures that are displayed on the two shelves. This setup includes GTX1070 with AMD FX8350 CPU. The black and white desk is backlighted with purple and blue LEDs.It gives this a fascinating outlook and also has a MacBook to handle some personal/official tasking. If you are a Japanese action anime lover then welcome to discover what products Faruqi A has. It is the best Gaming Setups which will impress you indeed.

We all love a clean and flexible setup. This is what Reddit user u/cfbModsAreAssMyDude’s first build looks like. The wireless keyboard and mouse keeps up the clean aesthetic and ensures there aren’t any unneeded wires hanging around; it looks really clean because of this. Plus, the wall mount lets you change the monitor from portrait to landscape easily-- perfect for streamers and other productivity use.
The chair that you use in your gaming setup is incredibly important. Without a good and solid chair, you could begin to experience some problems. These can range from a bit of back pain to the development of recurring back problems and injuries. Just think, you might spend hours at a time sitting in this chair, so you need to be comfortable and ensure no back pain is present. Sure, a nice chair may cost more than a low-quality one, but it is an investment in not only your comfortability but also your health.

We were debating on including this in here, however ultimately we thought, “we need to put all of this gear on something, right?” Desks were probably the most difficult to choose ‘just one’ as a recommendation, since we actually prefer L-desks for not only gaming but office work and leisure computer use. This particular model however caught our eye for a few reasons. For one, it’s relatively affordable as compared to some higher-end desks that cost almost a grand or more. The Arena also has a nice amount of space to it at 14 square feet, and what’s even more nifty is the fact that the entire surface is a ‘custom mouse pad’ so you can have as much space as you need to move your mouse as opposed to relying on a more limited external mouse pad.


So what is the ultimate gaming setup? If you decide on a console, get the one to play the exclusive titles you want with your friends. A super comfy couch is great to game and relax on and a worthwhile investment. Make sure to get a TV that will be able to display the 4K quality and a good sound system to immerse yourself in the game. Try to get the best our of your budget when building your PC. Don't forget to factor in your mouse, keyboard, monitor, chair and desk. They might seem insignificant but they all come together to make the gaming setup. If one of these is worse than the others, you will notice it. No matter what, just make sure your comfortable and enjoy your gaming experience.

Tucker Bowe of Gear Patrol included the Logitech G PRO Gaming Headset and the Logitech G433 7.1 Gaming Headset in his list of “The Best Gaming Headsets for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.” He shared that Logitech G "designed the headset with some of the best-known esports teams (such as G2 Esports and London Spitfire) on the G PRO headset, so it has some premium gaming features, like a tournament-grade mic and the company’s Pro-G drivers."
Some high-end enthusiasts may insist on a Core i7, but you truly don't need one for gaming, as most games don't stress the Hyper-Threading function that makes Core i7 models so appealing for other CPU-intensive tasks. Even a Core i3 would suffice for most builders, but since it's the heart of the system for gaming and also for everyday tasks, we figured we'd be grateful for the extra juice. Note that this isn't one of Intel's "K" series processors, meaning it is not unlocked for overclocking, which is fine; doing so is unnecessary most of the time for gaming. It also lets us save money on other components, such as the next one.

Not everyone prefers to game on a computer. Console gaming has become quite popular and has advanced drastically since the popular Atari was first introduced. Today, you have the PS4 Pro and the Xbox One S which are not too far in performance from gaming PCs. The PS4 Pro is slightly more powerful as a console than the Xbox One S. Microsoft will release Project Scorpio later in the year which will rival the PS4 Pro. However, both have the capability of producing 4K content, PS4 Pro is far better at it than the Xbox One S. If you aren’t too concerned about the graphic, then the games are what should appeal to you. Both systems have numerous games that are exclusive to the system. So if you are a fan of particular games that is only available on the PS4 Pro or the Xbox One S then you can pick your system accordingly. Xbox One S is cheaper than the PS4 Pro but remember it is also not as powerful.
It is a battle as old as time itself, which console is better? Everyone has their favourite, just like in the Apple V Android debate. There are many different reasons to like each side. Each have exclusive titles to the platform, different features, and different specs. Some stick with one system over another out of loyalty while others heavily weigh the options on both consoles. Lets compare the specs to see what the real difference is. If you aren't interested in the nitty gritty, tech heavy details, then you might want to skip this bit. With the latest release of the Xbox One X, both platforms are almost neck and neck in technical specifications as shown below.

An often forgotten key to comfortable and extending gameplay is monitor position. Think about your current setup. Is your neck in a comfortable position? Do you have to look up or down at the screen? Is there an annoying glare? Does your monitor position make you hunch down? All of these can have negative effects on your gaming and your body. Monitor mounts are an affordable way to upgrade your battlestation. Easily position the monitors at the right height, and tilt to eliminate glare. It'll keep you upright and stop your slow transformation into a hunched over gargoyle. Your back and neck will thank you.
To start with, be short and sweet. Most-watched content on YouTube is between one and a half to two minutes. You’ll need about 10,000 subscribers before you can pitch a video of over 5 minutes. You might need to record several hours of content and cut it down to the best 4 to 5 minutes. A good microphone and some good editing software are must-haves.

The only thing that we didn’t like about the setup are the 2 ultrawide monitors. Gaming with only 2 monitors is just inconvenient because of the bezels. Moreover, there are some issues with having only ultrawide monitors (which we have discussed in some of the above builds that feature ultrawide monitors). One Ultrawide is great, but we wouldn’t be opposed to swapping it out for 2 smaller 16:9 monitors. Of course, this might increase the overall build cost unless you’re going for 1080p monitors.


Are you an avid gamer, looking for space in your home dedicated to gaming? Having a room for the purpose of gaming helps you get the most out of the experience. It enables you to game in solitude, blast the sound as loud as you want, while having the ultimate gaming setup. Rather than using a completely separate room, if you have a home theater then you can use that for gaming purposes also. The setup you would have for your home theater would be ideal for gaming. The sound system, screen, and overall room setup would make it a perfect fit for a gaming room. Not only that, you end up saving space in your home by not dedicating a separate room for gaming. We’d like to thank our readers for visiting our page about gaming room setup ideas. We hope you find this page useful!

The mic is very sensitive so I received many complaints about the excessive echo from users about sound/their talking. One suggested I put a sock or something over it to help prevent echo on their ends. I didn’t have a sock on or near by so I threw a blanket over it. My voice was still coming through clearly and receive positive feedback from the addition of the blanket acting as noise Cancelation.

We try to provide an interesting new angle for you to consider when buying your next gaming peripheral, and while almost every piece of gear that’s used by pro players is objectively a good piece of equipment we do encourage you to take our gear results with a grain of salt and to always do your own research before purchasing a new mouse, monitor, or keyboard.
