PC gaming stations • Let's build a setup together!

Here we go again! Where had we stayed? Oh yes!

How to do it build a gaming station for your PC that is truly avant-garde?

First of all you have to remember that if you don't have a budget wide enough at your disposal is better build your gaming setup step by step without exaggerating.

Only in this way can you aim for the best: buy a few gaming accessories at a time but following a precise logic that is consistent with your ideal project.

We will see in more detail what I am referring to in the next paragraph.

Style and Design of the gaming station

Example of a gaming / office station in a minimal style, very simple and elegant.

First of all to complete one gaming setup that you like it is important that you know what you really want.

You could help yourself by browsing the internet among the countless gaming stations choosing a style that you particularly prefer.

Are you a PC gamer or console gamer? Or maybe you own both?

Based on where you play and how you play you will have to structure yours gaming station in order to find yourself comfortable and at the right distance from the monitor!


Soon I will recommend you some gaming accessories extremely useful for both types of players.

Are you a simple guy or a lively gamer?

Prefer one minimal gaming station or a gaming station rich in colors, LED RGB and with aggressive and captivating tones?

Unfortunately in this case I cannot help you: you will have to figure out if one stile clean e minimal it harks back more to your character than one lively and bright!


You could also be a player with a soul racing or a hybrid!

What matters is that in this guide you will find everything you need to create a setup da gaming to scream!

How much space do you have available?

Let's finally start the guide real: before starting, the most important thing is to calculate the space available.

After that we can decide the desk size to buy and how much space will remain available to enter peripherals (mouse, keyboard), case, monitor and audio speakers!

If the space available proves sufficient, you could consider buying a wide monitor or building a multi-monitor station!

Also keep in mind that it will be of paramount importance hide all cables in the most comfortable and natural way possible.

Furthermore, make sure that all peripherals present on the gaming station are reachable to provide the necessary power.

If you have a fairly spacious room, you could consider installing a home theater system and buying a comfortable pouf to use when console games or watch video content!


Depending on the space available, you can also choose whether to place your PC case above or below the desk.

Choose the desk for the gaming station

One of the most important things, if not the most important of all is the choice of the desk: it is the cornerstone of the whole gaming station.

It is always better to opt when possible at a spacious and perhaps corner desk, however when the environment does not allow it, you have to be satisfied.

It is above all of fundamental importance that it is robust and reliable since we will be putting on peripherals and equipment ranging from the value of hundreds of euros.


It is for this reason that I am recommending a standard model: the scrivania Trust GXT 711 black color.

Although it is not one gaming desk with particular skills he does his duty and does it leaving us with a serene heart.

The structure is quite solid, the black color makes it easy to use in most gaming stations.

The frame is made of steel, there is a headphone holder and a cup holder and the system of cable management is already implemented.

Furthermore, the price is not exorbitant either.

Gaming monitor for your desk

The monitor, or monitors, are also one of the most important aspects of one gaming setup.

And here I can assure you that the choice is not easily summarized in a few lines as done previously.

I therefore take this opportunity to invite you to take a look at our guide on the best gaming monitors in which you will really discover everything about monitors of all types and sizes.

I don't mean to sound snooty but that's really the bible on monitors da gaming: take a look and you will discover many things!

As mentioned earlier you could also buy more than one monitor and make one multi-monitor gaming station.

Go on!

PC configuration for your gaming station

Like every gaming station self-respecting obviously we must own a Gaming PC with the due attributes.

And if you don't know what I'm referring to, you could jump on our guide to the best gaming configurations where you will really find everything!

If it is a PC gaming what you want to assemble then there you will find whatever: they are present gaming setups for each price range with both the variant AMD than that Nvidia.

If you don't know which gaming case to choose you can settle for the one recommended in our official configurations otherwise if you are looking for something more elaborate then don't miss the best web guide on gaming PC cases!

For the rest in that article you will find everything: you will learn to choose the video card that suits you or the right processor!

But also much more including motherboard, power supply, RAM and SSD!

Dolby surround speakers for gaming station

It's really true: one gaming station high-end cannot afford to neglect the audio factor and, therefore, the choice of the best speakers.

Although the ones I am about to recommend are not the best on the market Logitech Z506 they are good speakers for anyone planning to build one gaming station of a good standard.

Leaving aside any discussion about the sound quality since they are darker talk of the dark forest, let us allow our spirits to settle for a moment with the audio quality offered by these speakers.

I doubt that there are many audiophiles among you so with a clear heart I recommend the traditional pc speakers that do their job.

Nothing more, nothing less.

This is not the place and time to dwell on the audio details so unless you have very high standards (and therefore you know exactly what you want) these breakage they will be just fine.

It is a system of Dolby Surround 5.1 also equipped with Subwoofer. Nothing striking, also given the rather low figure.

Bluetooth speakers for your gaming station

Still remaining in the audio field, I cannot fail to recommend at least one altoparlante Wireless audio that can be versatile in the event that you do not want to use the fixed speakers.

Plus one wireless speaker it is always convenient for everyone: it is a handy gadget that not only enriches yours gaming station it also makes itself useful in many situations as it is easily transportable.

The model I have chosen for you is one cassa bluetooth Anker which I had the pleasure of testing firsthand.

It performs really well at full power without distorting the sound too much. It is quite light but very detailed and elegant.

I don't see it as a speaker for transport but it is excellent to be placed under the TV or monitor.

It is recharged with a very simple cable Micro USB and also has an entrance AUX if you don't want to use bluetooth.

She is also an excellent secretary: when connected to the telephone, the volume can be raised and lowered and if a call arrives during playback, it can be accepted using the appropriate key.

The materials it is built with are good looking and really solid!

Choose the chair for your gaming station

Be careful not to underestimate this aspect: it is probably the most important of all since in this case it is no longer the quality or the aesthetics but the health.

Yes: bad posture day after day will gradually ruin the quality of your life.

Even when I was young I often underestimate the question and yet there correct posture it's the only thing you really need to worry about, especially when you're on your PC for the day.

So less complex about which processor to buy or which case is more beautiful: worry about which is the best gaming chair for yours PC workstation.

But pay attention to another thing: not all gaming chairs they are designed to offer excellent posture.

Should you have one study or office I could advise you which are the best office chairs but even in this case you have to be careful.

To be on the safe side, it is important to buy a good ergonomic chair!

Just one ergonomic chair will be able to keep your back in the correct posture and this will relieve you of future eternal back pain.

So give us a little thought, and deepen the question in our dedicated article!
