Items Every Avid PC Gamer Needs

Investing in top-notch computer hardware and software takes a lot of dedication and money. Money most of all. If you’ve still got some to spare though, shed some dough for these awesome items.

Swivel Chair
While everyone seems to focus more on electronic gadgets, there’s one item that’s often overlooked. If you’re gonna spend hours with your face glued to the screen, then you should have something comfortable to sit on. Swivel chairs are perfect for lazy bums (hey, we’re all guilty of that) who don’t have time to get up to grab something from the next table.

Surround Speakers
Wearing a headset for hours can strain your neck and back. Free up your head and get surround speakers instead. They’re also great for voice chats with teammates because you’ll get to hear everything.

Well, if you’re getting surround speakers, might as well complete the package with a mic. Pick a microphone with omnidirectional patterns. It’s easier to talk with a mic setup than with your headset on. You can also use it for other things besides gaming.

Controller and Arcade Joystick
If modified gaming mice like an 8-way directional gamepad isn’t enough for your collection, there are controllers and joysticks designed for specific games. There are joysicks designed for beat ‘em ups, flight simulation, strategy, motion-sensing and racing. There are even programmable gameboards that can substitute keyboards.

Gloves and Glasses
Everyone knows that if you’re playing online, you can’t pause the game. Even if you have a gaming mouse designed to withstand hours of gaming, there are people who have sweaty hands. Gloves not only make your hands less slippery but it also supports the wrist. Glasses will also help reduce eye strain that results from staring for hours on the screen.

Gaming Lights and Projector

If you’re planning to build a gaming den, then you have to fill the room with items that contribute to the ambiance. Gaming lights change color depending on the game you’re playing. Because, hey why not? A gaming LED projector on the other hand fills your need for a bigger screen if a multiple-monitor setup isn’t enough for you.

Gaming Gloves and Vest
Tired of your mouse? Get yourself a gaming glove designed to make casting spells easier for you. Some of us just want to feel our characters getting hit. So if a vibrating controller isn’t enough, there’s a gaming vest designed to let you feel every punch and bullet your character takes.

Repair and Maintenance Kit
Investing in PC gaming isn’t a joke, so you need to keep it in top working condition. You should always have the following items ready: screwdrivers, tweezers, cable ties, compressed air, duster or vacuum, brush, and spare screws.
