Monitor arm

Gaming Desk Setup

Do you like the almost perfect display of a monitor over a laptop? Prefer dual or multi-screen operation? Want to give your gaming desk more flexibility? If yes, then you probably need to consider mounting your monitor using a monitor arm. Basically , a monitor arm is a metal arm (mostly made of metal, but a small part of other materials) that can help your monitor hover. You need to fix one end of the arm to a table, wall or wherever you want, and then the arm will “send” your computer to your eyes. The advantages of this are:

  1. More room for your gaming desk.
  2. Make your gaming desk a multi-functional desktop (when not using the monitor, you can simply push away the monitor to get a blank desktop).
  3. Just admit that this is very cool. Imagine your monitor hovering above the desktop!

But as I did my research on this accessory, I found that they had an exceptionally large price difference, but there were few revolutionary design or quality differences to be seen between brands. This leads to a lot of research that needs to be done when you want to buy a monitor arm. In a nutshell, you have to first determine how many monitors you need. Then choose a price range you can live with, and then judge exactly which product to buy based on reviews and detailed page information. Regardless, here are my three buying suggestions to start with:

Extra large mouse pad

Gaming Desk Setup

You may ask, do I really need a mouse pad that takes up an average desktop area? The answer is of course you do, if you are after the comfort and beauty of a gaming desk. An extra large mouse pad can be both a mouse pad and a high quality desk pad that can help you create a neat and tidy gaming environment. Mouse pad has a more comfortable texture than the desktop surface. It can adapt to different temperature and humidity changes. Ensure that when you move the mouse significantly, the mouse pad remains motionless, refusing meaningless mouse manipulation.

The design and manufacture of the mouse pad have been very mature, so you can choose almost any pattern and price at will. Material, probably divided into artificial fiber, leather, and so on.

The choice of patterns and colors is very large, just buy as needed. Choose a product that has a lot of good reviews. For gaming extra large mouse pads, I have the following three product suggestions.

Vertical laptop stand

As the name suggests, a vertical laptop stand is an accessory which prop up your laptop vertically. When we often need to switch between monitor and laptop, this tool offers us the possibility to make the desktop neater. When you don’t choose to use a laptop, it looks very cool to simply put the laptop on the vertical stand.

Headset stand

Gaming Desk Setup
From a pragmatic point of view, a headset stand isn’t as necessary as a laptop stand or monitor arm. But for gamers, if you have a great headset, you’ll want a place to put it, not only to show it off, but also to protect it from damage.
There are actually a lot of headset holders on the market, and the features are becoming more and more comprehensive. Faced with the headset stand you have a very large number of options. You can find simply only for the headset stand, can be fixed on the edge of the desktop, or placed on the desktop. When I went to research this little gadget, I found that there are many carpenters who sell their handmade works, but the price is very high. As for what kind of product to buy, the benevolent sees benevolence, the wise sees wisdom.
Four different products are shown here for your reference.

Changing computers can be a very big investment, and if it’s just for the type-c interface, it seems very unnecessary.

Seeing a mess of wires can make us upset while seriously affecting the aesthetics of the gaming desk. For such a problem, we have three solutions . They can stand alone, but can also be used at the same time as needed.
  1. use cable ties to shorten cables that are extremely long

Ergonomic gaming chair

Gaming Desk Setup
A good ergonomic chair is well worth the investment. Most ergonomic chairs may seem very expensive, but if you are not a big fan of the brand, you can absolutely find a more affordable alternative. So how exactly to choose, what factors do you need to pay attention to?
  1. Lumbar support: in the selection of lumbar support, it is best to choose a flexible, adjustable lumbar support, so that the lumbar support can make us either in ambulatory writing, or relaxed state can play a perfect support role for the lumbar spine.
  2. Armrests: observe whether the back of the chair is connected together, which will enhance the overall comfort of the whole ergonomic chair. Backward leaning armrests can maintain the same angle with the human back, so that the arms get comfortable support. For people who often type, the structural design of the armrests is a must.
  3. Headrest: the role of the headrest is to support the head when we rest backward leaning. Whether the headrest adjustable mainly according to individual needs to decide, usually divided into adjustable and non-adjustable, adjustable headrest can achieve the headrest height, angle, front and rear adjustment, to meet the needs of different people and different working conditions of individuals.
  4. Height: Please choose an ergonomic chair according to your height and body shape. Some chairs look very cool, but can be extremely uncomfortable to sit on!
It is vital to choose the right product for you, just forget the price at the first point. Speaking from personal experience, as a short Asian woman, almost all the gaming chairs on the market are not suitable for me. Some gaming chair lumbar support are at my spine, or I simply can not lean on the headrest part. Some gaming chairs are too high, my feet can not touch the ground. Here I will not be making recommendations.
I suggest that if you have the need to purchase, first go to the offline store to try the seat on different chairs. Do not rush to impulse orders in the store, search the brand’s chair online to see if it’s cheaper online. Anyway, good luck!

Adjustable gaming desk

Gaming Desk Setup
The greatest gaming desk is one that is well-designed, has adequate seating, is comfortable, and promotes good posture. It should be adjusted to the chair’s height in order to provide a comfortable position and reduce the signs of health problems in the long term. In terms of what key elements to look for in a adjustable gaming desk:
  1. Size: You need to make sure the size of the gaming desk fits your gaming space.
  2. Adjustability& flexibility: Make sure the desk fits your need for adjustability. And make sure if you need to move the desk around, you won’t break your wrist or waist while moving it.
  3. Shape: Gaming tables come in different shapes and types, choose the exact shape that makes the best use of your space.
  4. Material: Make sure the material matches the vibe.
  5. Storage: You might not need any storage in your gaming desk, but if you do, don’t forget to pay attention to the storage.
Again, I wouldn’t recommend any adjustable gaming desk on the market because there are so many to choose from. When you go shopping for a chair, don’t forget to buy a gaming desk that suits you.

Bluelight reduction glasses

blue light reduction glasses
We are on the computer at least 8 hours a day, our eyes are always sore, dry and covered with redness. You may have tried various brands of eye drops, but they are either too irritating for the eyes and develop a dependency or too mild to be effective. I have also worn steam eye masks, which have a soothing effect on the eyes but still don’t solve the problem. Seriously, you need a pair of anti-blue light glasses, to isolate the harmful light that causes various eye problems.

Monitor fan

Gaming Desk Setup
I wonder if your hands often sweat, resulting in your keyboard and mouse often needing to be cleaned? Sometimes the game can get so sweaty when you get excited, seriously the Alien: Isolation scares the shxt out of me! So have you ever seen a fan mounted on the screen? This little accessory is a great space saver, and importantly, it’s very cool!
There are not very many sellers of these products on sale, here to provide you with one reference.

Arm rest

Gaming Desk Setup
If your chair is not equipped with an armrest, then you definitely need to consider purchasing two armrests. It will give you arm support and help you avoid a lot of health problems. I bought two armrests about three months ago, and I love them so much! If you don’t have one yet, trust me, be sure to get one for your arms.
