In this post, we’ll be going over some of the best gaming setup essentials out there today.
These essentials are the best accessories you can add to your setup. And they’ll make a huge difference.
First of all, you need a solid desk. If you’re a PC gamer, the desk will be the part where you spend most of your time. So, make sure you’ve got a desk that ticks the right criteria. Make sure it’s a big desk. Of course, this is going to depend on the size of your room. But you want to make it as big as possible. Since you’ll be fitting things on their such as monitors, your PC tower, peripherals, and other accessories. You can find great ideas on TechAnimate when it comes to desk accessories. Make sure the desk can hold a lot of weight, for this, you’ll want to make sure the legs are made from wood or metal.
You’ll be spending a lot of time sitting at your desk, so make sure the time you spend at your desk is pleasant. You can do this by getting a great chair. And I’m not talking about some cheap chair, you’re going to want to make a decent investment. Yes, it’s going to be pricey but it will be well worth it. Trust me, I know. I had a desk chair that really messed up my back and I had to go to a chiropractor and spend a ton of money. Also, I’ve had to go for blood tests and I’m waiting on an X-ray. So, yeah… a solid chair is important. Just because the chair is a “gaming” chair, does not mean it’s any good. I’ve found that they’re generally just overpriced.
3. Mouse mat
A mouse mat is a simple yet great essential for your setup. And I’m talking about a large mouse mat that covers both your mouse and keyboard. This way, you won’t be running out of space when you’re gliding your mouse around.
You won’t know how much you need a footrest until you have one. It makes a huge difference and you’re missing out. It even helps with posture so it’ll keep your spine healthy. You can even get footrests that will massage your foot.
5. Mini fridge
The last thing you want to do is to leave your room and go downstairs to get some snacks. So instead, a mini fridge is a great alternative! You’ll be able to store drinks and snacks. And not have to get up and interrupt your game.
6. Cable management system
You’ve spent a lot of time and money on your setup, making everything look cool. What can totally kill the look of a gaming setup are wires all over the place. It’s just a huge eyesore. And I don’t know about you but, if I see wires all over the place, I go crazy. So make sure you’ve got a few cable sleeves.
