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.
Christopher Coke of PC Perspective published his review of the Logitech G PRO Gaming Headset, awarding it PC Perspective’s Gold Award. He shared, “with pro gamers now competing in million dollar tournaments and filling out stadiums of their own, PC gaming peripherals are going to the way of Nike, inextricably tying themselves to competitive gaming with marketing and team sponsorships."

For another entry in the "made to be seen" column for this build, we went for two 4GB sticks of GeIL Super Luce RGB Sync DDR4 memory. For years, RAM had been a relatively low-cost part of PC builds, but RAM prices have spiked in 2018 and have yet to come back down. That said, $79 for 8GB is a pretty good deal, and the RGB strips add yet more pizzazz to proceedings.

And so, after a lot of rationalizing and budget-slicing, we ended up with a Founders Edition GeForce GTX 1070. Its $399 price means some concessions to storage and memory, but we felt it was worth making them. A graphics card is the main factor in the performance ceiling of a gaming machine, and going with a solid but not great option didn't sit right. This card also allows you to play at a higher resolution than 1080p with better frame rates (say, if you have a 1440p monitor). On the flip side, you might feel, understandably, that a GTX 1060 is plenty for this type of rig—and that choice gives you $100 to put toward other components. Our reviews at the link will give you an idea of the frame rates you will achieve with the different cards in different games.

Keeping your body comfortable is one of the keys to a great gaming binge. Nothing throws off your aim like a sore neck, tired wrist, or foggy brain. Get the most from your gaming sessions by optimizing your battlestation for extended play. In addition to gaming longer, you'll also get a healthier body, a pretty good bonus. Here are some great ways to level up your gaming setup.

Any gaming setup needs a wonderful spot to enjoy your games. You want to be comfy while getting the best visual experience when gaming on console or PC. There are a couple of gaming lounges that you can check out for the living room. If your looking to choose a gaming chair then check out what you should look for in your gaming chair choice. You'll want to make sure that the quality of your TV or monitor will match your gaming machine of choice. All the latest consoles come with 4K quality and anything on a PC can be up to 4K.  You need to pick a monitor or TV capable of displaying that quality though. Pair all this with your PC or console of choice and you'll have the best gaming setup.


The overall construction is quite sturdy and its light weight in case you need to move it around or travel with it to LAN parties. Underneath the desk you’ll also find a little cable management contraption to help with organization. Lastly, it comes in quite a few colors to fit your personality — red, black, blue, green, and white. The Arozzi Arena is awesome because of the color choices to match your style, portability, special and large surface designed strictly for gaming and overall affordability.
PC gaming has become one of the most lucrative and popular forms of entertainment in recent years. With that increased market share, more and more people have become interested in building their own PC. That means there’s a community and people who are willing to share their builds with the rest of the world. So, today we’re going to showcase 10 of our favorite gaming PC setups being posted around the web as of early 2019.
When it comes to the screen, chances are you already have a decent sized screen for your home theater. If not, it’s time you get one since you will be utilizing it for movies and gaming purpose. If you plan on getting a television, then we recommend getting something at least 60” or bigger, an Ultra High Definition (UHD) screen with 4K capabilities. This enables you to watch movies at high resolution and play game with crystal clear graphics, making it almost realistic. If you plan on getting a projector then there are numerous with 4K resolution. The best part about screens and projectors lies in the fact that they all come with HDMI connections so you can easily hook up your gaming consoles or computer to them.
With this headset, you will not only hear the sound, but you will feel the rush that comes with it. It has a The GAME ONE’s original transducer technology produces an incredible sound clarity as well as crystal clear accuracy, better articulating each individual sound. This innovative headset has a distinctive design in addition to upgraded accessories, making this one of the best gaming headsets for its price. If you take gaming seriously, the Sennheiser GAME ONE will without a doubt leave you impressed.
Similar to the G900 Chaos Spectrum, the G402 Hyperion Fury is another high-speed mouse and one of our favorite picks as the best gaming gear out there. This mouse contains optical sensor technology and combines it with Logitech’s custom built Fusion Engine hybrid sensor that will track speeds up to 500 IPS. Though this high-tech mouse is great for gaming, it is often highly regarded as a multi-use product. The Hyperion Fury is getting high praise for its built-in accelerometer and gyro which augments the capabilities of the optical sensor. If the optical sensor fails to produce due to the mouse’s high speed, this feature allows the mouse to make up time just in case.
Online gamers have all faced a situation at one time or another when a lapse in their broadband connection results in lag, adversely affecting gameplay. D-Link recently released their ‘Gaming Router’ which features StreamBoost, an intelligent system that prioritizes which devices get more and consistent broadband. In short, this gamer optimized router can deliver the internet to the devices which you believe should get it over others in the household.
This case's big, tempered-glass windows on four sides will highlight the components, and it includes eye-catching fan lighting on the front. It made things more fun, and it also saved us from having to install our own lighting during a live build. (The fans and their lighting come pre-wired.) It also looked relatively easily to build in, and who doesn't want that? At $127 at this writing, this chassis is certainly pricier than necessary—if you're cutting it close, you can easily shave money off with a less expensive case. But it looks great.

With gaming laptops, you’re also able to customize what features and specifications are important to you and line it up with a preferred price-point. You can choose a specific screen size (we like 15″ and up), processors (grab a 3.0 Ghz or higher), video card (again, the NVIDIA GTX series is top-of-the-line right now), and a hard drive capacity to your liking (stick with at least 500GB and with some portion of it to be a solid-state drive, please). The HP Omen is a top laptop pick recommended by not only use but those online gaming mags as well — for a reason.

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.
What makes this one a pick for the best gaming gear however, is the keyboards full-key matrix anti-ghosting mechanism that is perfect for enhancing your accuracy and making sure you’re safe of sticky-keys. Not only does this keyboard look great on your PC or laptop, but its light-weight and can be durable for as long as you need it to be. Sometimes it’s the little things that can thoroughly improve your game, so let the Corsair Vengeance K70 do it all, and get it for quite the reasonable price since it’s a bit cheaper than our previous Razer pick if you wanted to save some cash.
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.

This is a fantastic keyboard. I have used my son's gaming keyboard and it is quite cumbersome to use, the AmazonBasics seems to meet the brief of a working (ie office) and gaming keyboard head on, it is ideal for typing documents on as well as battering in a gaming setup, the build quality is excellent for the price. I like the highlighted keys (arrows and WASD, reminds me of my old Doom days) and the overall look.

Had the Stream Deck for a few days now and I gotta say im really impressed so far. It feels like a very premium product and looks it too. The cord is not too long at only about 3 feet or so, and theres no option to extend it. The LCD screens are very vibrant and the buttons feel solid. When you use a button that is an on/off switch (like a source on OBS) the key will light up or dim depending on whether its activated or not. I can see them in the future possibly releasing updates to add more options to what you can do with the stream deck. Some things i would like to see are live streaming controls for youtube live because currently they only allow you do comment/stream through your twitch account and I have taken youtube gaming as my home for streaming. ... full review

In many ways, the case you choose sets the tone for the whole build. It's obviously the most visual piece of the puzzle, so its aesthetic determines the theme and color scheme. Because of the need for some camera-friendly flash, we went with the Lian Li Alpha 550W chassis. This midsize tower was a big factor in deciding to go with a black-and-white theme for the rest of the parts—a clean, modern style.

However, if you get it right, the rewards can be substantial. Ninja, with 8 million followers on Twitch and 200 million channel views, is said to earn $500 000 per month. Revenue comes from subscriptions from Twitch followers, affiliate percentages from Amazon for products profiled on his streaming site, advertising to his 5 million subscribers on YouTube and his million followers on Instagram.
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.
