As gamers, there is nothing more exciting than getting a new piece of gaming gear. However, funding that gear is not so exciting. That’s why we’ve created this handy guide to get the best possible product without breaking the bank.

  • SteelSeries Arctis 7 Bluetooth Headset

    SteelSeries is by far one of my favorite brands and that’s because of the quality of the products they produce. I’ve had my pair SteelSeries headset for over two years now and had such a great experience with them, I’ve also gotten a keyboard and wireless mouse from them as well, all of which I love. Whether you’re a console, PC, or even mobile player, this headset is the perfect start to your gaming journey.

  • Flexispot Electric Stand Up Desk Workstation

    This has been one of the top things on my gamer gear list that I haven’t had a chance to get myself, so if you purchase this before me, please know that I am jealous already… That said, this adjustable standing desk is perfect for your gaming setup, and this is the best deal I’ve seen on one yet. For those who love the option of standing or sitting, this is the desk for you. 

  • RESPAWN RSP-110 Racing Style Gaming

    Now that you have found the perfect gaming desk, let us look at a great gaming chair. I can recommend this chair because I own this exact model. It’s strong, durable, and the best part… it’s a good price

  • WotNot Creations Desktop Smartphone Arm

    Okay, this one is a little odd compared to the others, because most wouldn’t think of this as “gaming gear” but have you ever tried to play with a friend over Discord through your phone or tried to watch a streamer on Twitch and it became annoying because you had to hold your phone the whole time? Well, here is your solution. Simply attach to the side of your desk and you can watch hands-free and not worry about knocking your phone over. 

  • Blue Yeti Nano

    Speaking of streaming and audio, are you looking to improve on your gaming or streaming audio? This is the perfect mic to get you started. It’s small, easy to configure and sounds GREAT. This USB microphone plugs directly into your computer and just works. If you stream, game on PC with friends, take work calls or even want to start a podcast, this microphone will work for everyone.

  • SteelSeries Sensei 310 Gaming Mouse

    If you thought I was only going to put one SteelSeries product on this list, than you must think I was lying when I said it was one of my favorite brands. There are several SteelSeries mouse options, but if you want the BEST quality for the price, the Sensei 310 is your mouse. You’d be hard pressed to find another mouse for under $50 better than this one. 

  • NETGEAR Nighthawk Smart Wi-Fi Router

    Now, if you’re an online gamer, the quality of your internet can be the difference between you being good and great! Which means you need to have the best connectivity you can. But I’ve seen that most modems are limited in range and not everyone can have a hardline into their consoles or PCs, we rely on WiFi, which means routers are necessary. There are tons of overpriced routers out there, but this router has the quality and won’t make your wallet cry.  

  • PC Gaming Headset Headphone Hook Holder Hanger Mount

    It may seem strange, but let’s be honest, you gotta protect your equipment. Headsets are an essential part of your gaming gear, and you have to keep them safe. This headphone hook holder mounts to your desk and has a hook for you to safely protect your headphones after you’ve finally turned off the monitor. 

  • Game Controller Mouse Pad

    Even if you’ve gotten all of your equipment together you still need a few things to decorate your space. Like this mouse pad. It’s a simple gaming mouse pad with video game controller graphics on it. 

  • Led Strip Lights

    We wouldn’t be proper gamers if we didn’t mention having multi-colored LED light strips. You’ve probably seen these on TikTok too, but these lights can be used to frame your monitor, shelves, ceiling, or whatever you want in your gaming setup.

  • Blue Light Glasses

    Listen if you haven’t used blue light glasses before, you’re missing out. Blue light glasses, like these from Zenni Optical, are incredibly important for people who utilize technology like computers, cell phones, etc. They help protect your eyes from the glare of the blue light from your electronics. These frames are just one of many of the cool frames from Zenni Optical that you can get with their Blokz blue light protection.

  • Neon Sign Gamepad Controller

    One last piece of décor we just had to include. If you’re going to do it right you gotta do it with some neon. This neon sign gaming controller is the perfect piece of décor for your background that will really complete your streaming look.
