Gamers should sincerely understand the importance of their setup. Without the right setup, your gaming session will quickly become uncomfortable. Your skills will be lackluster and you’ll find yourself getting fragged by your nemesis countless times. In order to keep your game at the top level and to remain comfortable throughout the entire gaming session, it is pertinent to invest in the right accessories. Below, you will find a breakdown of the best accessories for gaming!

Gaming Chair

Believe it or not, your chair could make a world of difference. If you sit in an ordinary chair, you’ll find yourself becoming immensely uncomfortable very quickly. A gaming chair will be specifically designed for hardcore gamers and will be able to accommodate whatever posture you game in. This will allow you to remain comfortable for a longer duration, while simultaneously remaining in better control of your in-game character. Many gaming chairs also offer built-in speakers, the addition of which can help to immerse you into the gaming environment.

Want some examples of great gaming chairs to check out? One of the most popular gaming chair manufacturers is that of DXRacer, a company that specializes in chairs of all shapes and sizes for gamers! SecretLab, another manufacturer of gaming chairs, has recently opened up operations in the United States as well if you’re looking for more options.

Suitable Monitor

While you’re at it, you’ll want to equip yourself with one of the best gaming monitors on the market. Opting for the biggest and highest quality monitor is highly recommended. These characteristics will provide you with the most beautiful and realistic graphics humanely possible. You’ll also be provided with fluid frame rates, so you’re able to enjoy to enjoy your video game, without any hiccups or glitches along the way.

There’s an endless supply of monitors to choose from – but when you make your decision it comes down to a few key ideas. How many monitors do you want, and how much space is available to you. If you’re planning on running a multi-monitor setup – make sure you have enough space to get the larger models! Check out Amazon (affiliate link) for some of the highest rated monitors!

Most Powerful Router

Before going any further, you’ll want to make sure you invest in the most power router possible. This will be one of the most pertinent investments you will ever make. A large number of modern gamers rely on a wireless connection to connect to the Internet. If you fall into this category, you’ll want the fastest router you can find. Be sure to opt for one that is capable of transmitting on both frequencies, because the 2.4GHz band can be overwhelmed in apartments and crowded complexes. Don’t be afraid to spend a few hundred dollars for a good router! It’ll prove to be well worth it in the long run. The Amped Wireless RTA2600 is definitely a good choice, but somewhat expensive, and the TP-Link Archer C7 (affiliate link) is lower priced but still has some great features.

Even if you go for a lower end wireless router – make sure to do your research on their speed capabilities and broadcast range for both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz spectrums, you don’t want to buy one only to find it doesn’t reach as far as you need!

Headset

The mass majority of gamers won’t play alone. Instead, they’ll jump online and form teams with others from all around the world. In order to ensure you’re able to work together functionally, it is essential to be able to communicate with your teammate fluidly. Therefore, you’ll want to invest in a good headset. The headset should provide you with crystal clear audio each and every time your teammate speaks. At the same time, the headset’s microphone should be able to transmit your voice without any glitches or static, as well as filter out any background noise.

This combination will make your team so much more effective, and no one wants to hear your cat or dog making noise when the game is on the line! Don’t be afraid to go wireless, either – Corsair, Logitech, and SteelSeries make some great headsets that are cord-free!

Mouse & Controller

Gamers take their job very seriously, whether they are trying to mow down a bunch of zombies or take out a bunch of aliens. They depend on their equipment to survive the most gruesome battles. A mouse and controller is a necessity for video gaming. However, just any ole’ mouse and controller will not do. Instead, the devices must be designed for gamers, with thumb sticks, pressure point triggers and a directional pad. These features help the gamer achieve success every time, even when they are battling multiple competitors.

While you can certainly get by with a standard Keyboard and Mouse – it’s definitely recommended that you spend the extra money to get your hands on a Mechanical Keyboard paired with a gaming mouse. Being able to program custom buttons on your mouse will make it easier to program your push to talk button, and the reaction speeds on both will be higher than your standard office-oriented keyboard and mouse combo.

We’ve done a few reviews on the HyperFX Alloy, Roccat Suora, and Corsair K70 keyboards, and the Corsair Vengeance M65 Mouse if you’re looking for ideas!
