Games console or PC? If the latter is your favorite option, you will no doubt have a good rig and an impressive collection of games to play. But, have you ever wondered how you can improve your gaming experience?
Sure, you could upgrade your RAM, get another SSD or even upgrade to a Core i7 CPU. But, there are plenty of improvements you can make outside of your PC case!
You might not think it, but the environment in which you play your PC games could be letting you down. In today's blog post, I will share with you some ways to improve your gaming experience. Here is what you need to know
Are you rocking an old Microsoft keyboard? Perhaps you've been using your trusty Logitech model for a while? If you spend a lot of time gaming on your PC, you need a better keyboard. Why? Because it will help you with your game play, of course!
For gamers, there is only one real choice. Mechanical keyboards offer the feedback you need to make the right game decisions. Plus, you can even get some backlit models - good for night-time gaming!
Once you've upgraded your keyboard, you should now focus your attention on your mouse. It's important that you have the right pointing device at your disposal. The best gaming mouse products on the market offer superior optical tracking. Plus, they have decent battery life.
You should try some out before you buy. We all have different hand sizes. And some of us might get aches and pains from using certain types of mice!
This section should perhaps get split into speakers and headphones. There will be times where you want to crank up the volume when playing those shoot-em-ups! But, if you've got a house full of people, you may prefer wireless headphones instead.
Ignore the budget brands and stick with only premium, good-quality ones. Again, try some before you buy. I recommend visiting an audio store for the best choices available.
Let's face it: the price of computer monitors has come down a lot in recent years. It's now possible to get models that are almost as large as your living room T
Avid gamers may wish to buy two or three displays and mount them in a horizontal array. If you don't have the space to do so, one large monitor will be OK. You can also mount them on your wall if desk space is at a premium. Be sure to buy a computer monitor that has VESA mounting points.
5. Ergonomic Chair
Last, but not least, it's important that your gaming chair supports your back and neck. You do have a gaming chair, don't you? If not, now is the time to go out and invest in one!
The thing about standard office chairs is they can often be uncomfortable. Gamers will spend hours playing their favorite titles. Make sure you don't walk away from your games with a sore back!
