Must have accessories for PC gaming

Finally! you have a little free time, and what better way to take advantage of it than to play on your PC. But, it seems that your computer's mouse and keyboard are not comfortable enough to get the most out of your gaming experience. Not to mention, your cellphone earphones keep coming out of your ears.
If you want to get the most out of your gaming experience, you will need some matching accessories. The three must-have accessories for every PC gamer are a gaming mouse, a gaming keyboard, and a gaming headset.
Let’s review each category!


One of the most important things when playing on your PC is to be comfortable. While you can use a conventional mouse, a gaming one has an ergonomic design that will keep you from getting cramps.
A gaming mouse has sensors to improve reactions when playing and are illuminated, to help you get into your game. Also, many gaming mice have additional buttons that you can access with your thumb. These buttons can be programmed to be extra hotkeys, which will help you stick to the game and avoid switching to the keyboard when chasing enemies.
There is another detail that you must take into account when choosing a gaming mouse: DPIs. DPI stands for "dots per linear inch" and is the standard used to measure the mouse sensitivity, expressed as the number of dots per linear inch that a mouse can detect. If you have a large monitor, you will need a higher DPI mouse.

Whether you’re playing competitively or not, a gaming keyboard plays a key role in your gaming performance. A great gaming keyboard can provide a better gaming performance, whether that’s increasing your effectiveness online or simply providing a more comfortable experience while you de-stress and enjoy a night in another world.
Something you should look for while choosing a gaming keyboard is if it is mechanical or not. Mechanical keyboards consist of keycaps, which, when pressed, activate high-quality, spring-loaded plastic mechanical key switches underneath. You will hear and feel a “clicking” sound when the key is pressed to let you know that it was registered. They are durable and excellent for competitive gameplay. There are also optical/photo-optical keyboards that use light-emitting diodes (LED) and photo sensors to detect when keys are activated optically. These ones are usually incredibly fast.

Picking the right headset is crucial for a gamer’s experience. Gaming headsets let you chat with teammates and gather sound details that you can’t get through a speaker system. But how do you know what will work best for you? Since every gamer is unique, what you think is most important in a headset may not be the same for someone else.
Some features that you should look for before buying a gaming headset are sound quality and latency. Sound quality is measured through bitrates, expressed in kilobits. This is the amount of data that is processed per second. The higher the bitrate, the more information is stored in the audio file, which will render a more detailed sound.
Latency is the time it takes for a signal to reach its destination. In gaming headsets, latency is the delay that occurs from the time the audio signal is sent (or played) until it is actually heard through the earcups.
