1. Gaming monitor
A monitor will have the biggest impact when it comes to your gaming experience. So don’t skip this…
…We’ve decided to go with a 1440p monitor. You’ll instantly be able to see the difference. Colors are brighter and the darker colors are deeper.
Giving you a more accurate graphical representation. If you love graphics, a 1440p monitor is a must.
This has a refresh rate of 144hz. Users have reported a dramatic increase in smoothness when switching from 60hz to 144hz.
Because of the high refresh rate, you’ll be able to see things sooner and because of that you’ll be able to react quicker.
This monitor has a response rate of 1ms. This simply means there’s not going to be any delay from your mouse/keyboard/controller input to what’s happening on-screen.
Have you heard of FreeSync?
Simply put, FreeSync makes your games smoother and prevents screen tearing.
You see, when your graphics card is producing more frames than your monitor can output, the game starts to stutter and looks like the picture has split into 2.
2. High quality headset
If you’re looking to immerse yourself into a game or really want to win a match, then you need a high quality gaming headset.
If you’ve read our other guides, you know that we mention HyperX headsets all the time.
Because they’re super comfortable and have awesome sounding audio.
This headset has super plush but firm memory foam which cradles your ears nicely.
When you remove them after a long gaming session, your ears won’t feel sore or ache.
The top of the headset is also covered by foam and won’t leave you with a headache.
The sound is fantastic! Bullets shooting past you and attacks have a nice bass to it and vocals are crystal clear.
It’s also wireless, allowing for 30 hours of gameplay time. That’s more than enough for the most hardcore gamers.
There’s a detachable noise cancelling headphone which is fantastic.
You’re not going to sound like Ed Sheeran with it on but your voice goes through clear and it reduces background noise.
3. Gaming mouse
A top gaming mouse is a must for your PC.
We’ve gone with a gaming mouse with a massive DPI of 16,000.
This allows for your mouse movements to be picked up accurately and allows for great precision.
The honeycomb design allows for gaps throughout your hand, allowing air to get through and cools your hand.
It’s lightweight and durable.
The cable is incredibly lightweight, it reduces cable pull and prevents any stutter a wire can bring when gliding.
This mouse is only 60g in weight! So your hand won’t feel fatigued when gaming.
Your hand will fit nicely over the mouse. Providing comfort and precision.
If this wasn’t enough, you can easily change the colors with its downloadable software.
So if you want a deadly combat machine, we’d highly recommend this mouse.
4. Gaming keyboard
So we’ve just talked about a gaming mouse but how about a gaming keyboard? They’re just as important.
We’ve gone with a high quality and anti-ghosting keyboard. When you press a key, the action is going to appear instantly on-screen, without delay.
This feature will make a massive difference in-game.
The key presses are responsive, tactile, and satisfying. You’ll be pleased to know the key presses are quiet.
So you won’t be annoying yourself every time you game or annoying the person at the other end of the mic.
We all want our setup to look cool, that’s why this is fully customizable when it comes to lighting.
There are 10 preconfigured settings to choose from.
There are 6 reprogrammable keys on the left side of this keyboard. You can remap them to whatever you like.
It also comes with dedicated multimedia controls. So you can adjust things like your volume without interrupting your game.
This comes with a comfortable wrist rest. Preventing fatigues and allowing you to game comfortably and for longer.
So if you’re looking for a gaming keyboard that comes with all the best gaming features at an affordable price, look no further.
5. Air purifier
Like the overwhelming majority of us, when we game, we end up stinking out the room.
We don’t realise but there’s actually a lot of airborne bacteria that can be incredibly harmful. Also, dust, mold, pet fodder, and toxins.
For me, my health is a top priority and it should be the same for you. No one wants to feel like crap after a long gaming session.
That’s why an air purifier is a must. We need the air we breathe to be pure in-order to feel good.
That’s why we’ve gone with an air purifier to stop you from having that nutorious video game crash.
This air purifier has 4 built-in filters.
- Original filter (For multipurpose coverage)
- Pet allergy filter (Helps prevent your animal allergies from starting)
- Toxin absorber filter (Gets rid of smoke and smog)
- Mold and bacteria filter (prevents moisture from building up and molding your walls)
This is pretty much silent with a sleep mode of only 24db.
So when you’re gaming you can rest easy knowing you’re not going to be distracted and neither are the people on the other side of your mic.
Filters have to be replaced every few months and these ones are some of the most affordable out there.
The manufacturers have made it super easy to know if a filter needs changing because the color will start to change.
If you want to game whilst feeling fresh and productive and in a non-smelly environment, we highly recommend this.
The only downside to this is some users have reported a plasticy smell for a few hours after they turned it on for the first time. But after that, the plastic smell faded.
Plan to stream on Twitch?
Then you need to create a more intimate experience with your viewers. That’s why we’d recommend getting a webcam and recording your face.
But not any webcam… we recommend the Logitech BRIO Ultra HD Webcam. It records in stunning 4K and will capture your face beautifully.
This is great in any lighting and automatically adjusts the contrast to consistently display a clear picture.
It’s all about eye candy these days, that’s one reason why streamers get an increase in their following. Upgrading your hardware can kick-start your streaming career.
Let’s face it, when we’re fixing or upgrading our PC, a screw always gets lost in there.
It’s rattling all over the place and you need to find it before it shorts something out.
That’s why we’re including a simple headlamp. This head lamp is bright, long lasting, lightweight, and comfortable.
The best part? It’s cheap and you get 2 of them.
8. Big mouse pad
A big mouse pad can make a big difference (no pun intended).
Mouse pads allow for better tracking from your mouse. It’ll pick up the sensor a lot better and you’ll be more accurate.
And it just makes your setup look cooler. Especially the one we went with which lights up.
This gaming mouse pad has 14 lighting modes, 8 static light modes, and synchronizing breathing.
It has an anti-slip rubber base, preventing it from crunching up when rapidly moving your mouse.
The large size makes sure it can occupy both your keyboard and mouse without running out of space when gliding.
It’s easy to use. There are no drivers or software to install. Just plug it in and play.
9. Gaming glasses
We’ve mentioned health a few times in this post and we’re going to mention it again. Health is your number one priority.
And we can’t mention health without gaming glasses.
So what are gaming glasses?
Gaming glasses simply block the blue light screens produced.
This in-turn reduces fatigue, eye itching, helps promote better sleep, reduces headaches, etc.
We’ve mentioned these gamer glasses in other posts and we’re going to recommend them again.
The glasses do all the things gamer glasses should do. It blocks the blue light and protects your precious eyes.
If you’re afraid of these glasses distorting colors, don’t be. You’ll notice little to no difference when gaming.
The frame is durable and made from a high quality plastic. So if you drop them, they probably won’t break (unless you drop them hard of course!)
You only have one set of eyes during your life, so make sure to protect them.
10. Foot rest
If you currently don’t use a foot rest, I can’t begin to explain how much you’re missing out.
The feet are always neglected when it comes to comfortability. Make sure to do them a favor by getting them this foot rest.
It’s made out of memory foam which cradles the feet well and allows them to rest.
The bottom is made out of a non-slip material which prevents this from moving all over the place.
There’s also a lifetime replacement guarantee. So if anything goes wrong, you can just get a replacement.
You’ll be pleased to know this foot rest will last you for many years to come.
11. Magnetic headset mount
You need somewhere to hang your headset, and the best way to do it is with a magnetic headset.
It’s a square that splits into 2 which allows you to hang more things. The design is simple yet incredibly effective.
The magnet is powerful and this allows you to hang your bulky headsets.
In-between the square is a slit which you can put your cable through, Making everything look clean.
Speaking of clean, this is super easy to clean and will last for many years.
12. Cable manager
For some reason, PC gamers always overlook cable management.
Doesn’t it drive them crazy when they see cables all over the place?
Well, if you’re like me, cables all over the place ruins your gaming experience and makes you go nuts.
We’ve gone with a quick and easy cable management solution. This won’t make all your wires look sleek but instead, takes the bulk of the issue away.
This is an under desk cable management solution. You simply mount this under your desk and bunch on the wires.
It’s easy to install and has lots of space for your bulky power bricks. There are plenty of length options for your exact desk size.
This has a clean, modern look and will not be an eyesore, especially when it’s under your desk.
If you’re looking to make your cables look sleeker, we recommend some basic, reusable velcro ties.
They’re durable, look minimal, so they won’t make your cables stand out and are durable.
You can get these super cheap.
If you’re going to be allowing cables onto your desk like chargers, an on desk cable separator and holder is a must.
It’s super easy to install, simply take the adhesive tape off and stick it onto your desk.
You can then proceed to put your cables through.
This is made from a solid silicone material and built to last. It sticks on all surfaces such as wood, plastic, glass, etc.
Sometimes it’s nice to take off the headphones and turn up the speakers. There’s just something so immersive with a solid set of speakers.
We’ve gone with one of the highest rated desktop speakers out there. There are so many positive reviews and for good reason.
Everything sounds rich and crystal clear. When there are explosions and bullets flying by, this gives you that bit of UMPH! Really immersing you into games.
There are built-in dials which allow you to precisely adjust the sound.
You can adjust the power of the bass and the mid ranges.
However you’d like your games to sound, these speakers will give you the customization option.
14. LED strips
We can’t talk about PC gaming accessories without mentioning LED lighting. Without LED lighting, your setup won’t truly feel complete.
We’ve gone with a set of smart LED strips. These strips can easily be controlled by an app.
There are 16 million colors for you to choose from.
It has a built-in sensitivity mode which allows you to create a romantic/relaxing/party ambiance with the change of the beat or microphone. Now that’s smart!.
You can also dim these lights in-case you’re sensitive to light.
There’s also a timer switch that sets appropriate colors and brightness as the day/night goes on.
If you’re clumsy like me and end up spilling water in every nook and cranny, you’ll be pleased to know these are waterproof.

Stop fighting your mouse and focus all your energy on the enemies. That’s exactly what this will do for you.
Do you intend on playing action games like The Witcher 3, Devil May Cry etc?
Then you need a controller.
We’ve gone with an Amazon Basic Xbox One controller.
Xbox controllers are known to easily break and after going through a bunch of different controllers, we found this is the most reliable.
You get a 1 year warranty. So if something suddenly stops working, you can easily get a replacement.
It’s the classic Xbox one with all the functionalities but more reliable.
17. Elgato Stream Deck
If you plan on streaming, this accessory is going to make your life so much easier.

And I just swipe my hand over it or use some tissue paper to get rid of it.
Instead of using your precious skin, put on these dusting gloves and then start wiping around your setup.
No liquids or spray needed, just put them on and go to town. This glove fits most people because the material expands.
