Did you know that the gaming accessories market is predicted to grow by 21% each year? Much of this is down to the popularity of home gaming. But do you know how to build that excellent gaming setup?

Unfortunately, it is not as easy as it seems. Read on as we give our must-know guide on the perfect gaming setup. 

Start with Perfect Gaming Setup Seating

The first step for your perfect gaming setup is to start with seating. You are going to be in that chair for a long time, and you need a seat that is comfortable and supportive. 

There are a number of gaming chairs available on the market. However, they are not always the highest quality. They may not even be the most comfortable. 

Do not be afraid to use a normal, plush office chair as your gaming chair. You may even use an armchair if it fits your room and desk height. 

Console or PC?

You may have already decided upon this. If you haven’t, then the device you choose for playing video games can have a large impact on what you need in your room. 

For example, if you are console gaming you only need to choose a large TV, then a comfortable chair. For PC gaming, you need to consider the desk and its height, along with the chair and monitors. You also need somewhere to keep the tower, and space on the desk for a keyboard and mouse. 


As mentioned, a console gamer can simply choose the biggest and best TV within their budget. For a PC gamer, it gets more complicated. You have to choose from sizes, resolutions, along with the frame and refresh rates. 

Depending on the type of game you play, you may also have chosen to have dual monitors. These are not for everyone, so make sure you have tried a dual monitor set up before committing. 


Next comes the desk. It needs to be big enough to fit all the monitors, keyboard and mouse. When sitting at it on your gaming chair, its height should sit at right angles to the bend of your elbow. 


Now you have the setup, you just need the games to play. You can save a lot of money by signing up for streaming services like GameMine. They offer monthly subscriptions for streaming games so you don’t keep having to make expensive purchases for titles. 

Once you have this, make the room look great. There is a world of gaming merchandise and memorabilia to theme your room. You may choose to kit it out with retro gaming consoles and accessories or fill it with posters and toys of your favorite franchise. 

Sit Back and Relax

Now you have the perfect gaming setup, sit back and relax. Your favorite games are just a controller touch away, but this time with the added comfort of your own game room to play in!
