First and foremost, the video game console(s) and television need a central piece of furniture to keep everything organized, yet accessible. IKEA has many home entertainment consoles, but the budget minded gamer will appreciate what the popular EXPEDIT line offers. Not only is there a mount to raise a flat screen to an optimal viewing level, but the storage units are perfect for displaying consoles, game boxes, and other decorative items.
Gaming PCs contain a higher end & more powerful graphics card as compared to traditional PCs. gaming laptops are also becoming more available as gaming grows increasingly more mobile. A large difference between a gaming laptop and a normal laptop is the cooling components. Gaming puts a heavy strain on both the GPU (graphics processing unit) and CPU (central processing unit) which generates more heat and therefore needs a more sophisticated cooling system.

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.
After we decided on, ordered, and finally, received all the parts, the time came for the actual build. As opposed to some builds we've done in the past, no one unusual component in this system added a twist or caused trouble. We've installed strange coolers and built in constraining cases, but the parts in this desktop are straightforward. Because of that, we weren't especially wary going in—but you never know what a build will throw at you.

Every gaming setup needs certain components in order to run games. Each of these comes at a range of different specs, which can be a little complicated at first. Have a look online to find out more about things like processing speed and frame rate to give you an idea of what you want and are willing to pay for. The basic components of a working gaming setup are as follows:
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.

We Know PC gaming setups undoubtedly a challenging as well as the pricey pursuit for gamers. You know, performance comes first, profit is its logical sequence. Comparing with a single set up and the next in fact vary a little. But an entire gaming empire built means you need a fortune. From budget-friendly to high-end gaming here we gathered all component, essential upgrades targeting midrange to the higher territory for your dream Best Gaming Setups.

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 paid for it in effort, though. The Gammaxx isn't abnormal for an air cooler, but its bracket orientation was confusing, and we started screwing in the parts out of order. This had a little domino effect during the build; we had to backpedal a few steps, and it took longer than it probably should have, but it was hardly catastrophic. Lesson: Read the manual, or at least flip through it. (We tried to wing it.)
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.
With everything else selected, we were able to get a sense of how much power we'd need to run the system. The GPU and CPU are the main power drains, and given the components we selected, the 650W Corsair VS Series VS650 is strong enough for the job. 450 to 500 watts is enough for a GTX 1070 and the relevant components, so the VS650 even leaves some headroom to be safe. It's not one of the fancier options—it's non-modular, without the higher-end gold or platinum certification—but in a build that doesn't require excessive power and is trying to stay under a price limit, it should be a fine fit.
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."
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.
This is just what I wanted. I've been buying £50-£80 mechanical keyboards. I've had to return some, but this keyboard is a keeper. Compare to my current Cherry Black, responsive touch and that old click sound. This one also have fancy Leds. That's so great, but I rarely look at my keyboard anyway when I'm typing. The Aukey Keyboard has a good weight to it and it is really solid on the desk, no movement at all.
Ross Rubin of Fast Company featured insights from Andrew Coonrad regarding the mechanical gaming keyboard market in his feature article, “The Mechanical Keyboards Of Yesteryear Are Back - And Better Than Ever.” Ross shared, “while dozens of small keyboard makers make only mechanical keyboards aimed largely at the video game market, Logitech is a keyboard giant that caters to a market beyond purists.
And, if you want to make money from this activity, the number of followers who become subscribers is what matters. Advertisers who sponsor your video will typically pay between $75 to $100 per 1,000 subscribers that you have. They are paying for potential reach, not views. Note also that you need at least 1,000 subscribers before you will be allowed to do live streaming on YouTube.

The component that gave us the most trouble was the CPU cooler. It didn't stump us, fortunately, or stop the build, but it required some trial and error. We used the Deepcool Gammaxx GT RGB, which we had on hand in the office. The Core i5-8400 comes with a stock cooler that's adequate for cooling at no additional cost. So you don't absolutely need the Gammaxx, thus its exclusion from our pricing total. Since we had it around, though, its RGB-laden logo and fan made it a no-brainer inclusion.

Having decided which CPU we were going with, we knew the motherboard type we would need. You don't have to spend a bundle here—fitting the correct socket type for your processor is the chief concern—but nicer boards come with some nicer features. We went with the MSI B360-A Pro (using the LGA 1151 socket), which supports eighth-generation Intel chips like the Core i5-8400.

Last but not least, here’s a cool little spin to what some would consider a ‘gaming accessory’. This is more of a why not than a perhaps. If you’re into organization or are like us and really just aren’t a fan of cables (especially the annoying clutter you have underneath your setup), then these are not only cheap but super effective as well. We’ve seen quite a few different spins to ‘cable management sleeves’ but through research we’ll link you to one of our favorites and most reviewed.

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!!
Next, we have a controller that is perfect for multi-platforms. The Logitech Wireless F710 features dual vibration feedback monitors allowing you to literally feel the game in your hands. In addition, the F710 impressively comes with a wireless connection that allows you to cut the wires entirely so that you can play with the utmost convenience. The gaming world is endlessly growing and advancing your equipment is always important. If you are a competitive gamer, you certainly want a controller that can adapt and be unique to the user. The profiler software that is specifically designed by Logitech’s brand enables play with an unsupported title, allowing all controls to become programmable.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Since this is a controller that can also work specifically with Android TV’s, Logitech provides the user with standard Android controls as well as instructions so that you will never have any issues navigating. When it comes to superior equipment, as well as enhanced control features, the Logitech Wireless F710 has got you covered. Not to mention allows you to steer away from those pesky wires if you’re OK going the wireless route in a gaming environment.
Ghost Gaming is a newly founded organization that was created in early 2017. The first game the organization struck into happened to be Gears of War 4. The first Ghost Gaming squad consisted of GODPLAYS, Sleepytime, Phenomxnon, RushieZ, and KeeM. After a 3rd Place finish at the Gears Pro Circuit Mexico City Open, the roster went through a few changes. Dropping Phenomxnon for Drix and GODPLAYS departing to join eUnited, the new roster has solidified themselves as a force to be reckoned with.
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.
Choose the one with high-quality leather and good memory foam to keep you comfortable during extended gaming hours and one with a built-in microphone for communicating with your teammates. Although these headsets are primarily used for gaming, it’s also important to consider its capability to produce high-quality audio for late night music sessions.

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.


The Gammaxx cooler wasn't our only unnecessary RGB accessory: We installed something even sillier. Lian Li provided us with its new Strimer RGB 24-Pin Cable, an auxiliary main-PSU power cable with colored lighting built in. It comes in two layers—the white cable itself, which carries the power, and a translucent layer of fiber-optic lighting that clips on to the top of the cable. (This latter layer is also connected to the cable by a small wire for power.) One end of the 24-pin cable gets plugged into the PSU's motherboard female power-cable socket on one end, and into the PSU's 24-pin male cable connector on the other.
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.
