      I bought a Sharkoon "gaming" headset once ($150~). It was a flimsy piece of **** and broke one month in.

                  I've seen a gaming desk which claimed it had a coating meaning no mouse mat was required, could definitely see that as an advantage.

                      I'm watching this from my gaming desk that not only had a cup holder for my mountain due (jk I hate that piss) but also a place to hang my gaming headphone and stands for my gaming speakers.

                                If she's against it, you don't get to play.

                                Of course, this supposes you actually have a life enough to get one. I guess if your really dedicated you don't have either and a better mouse is more important.

                                  Picked up an IKEA butcher block about 5 years ago for my computer desk and haven't looked back. Have it so loaded up I have to secure it to the wall. Nice having real wood and not some mdf/plywood bs they're pushing here. I paid $192 with the legs which included $40 for shipping.

                                    If you guys are trying to make this a series, I suggest that you make one of your episodes on keyboards and talk about the marketing bs that brands like corsair and razer come up with

                                        Don't talk about gaming hardware if you're not a gamer. All we got to see are arrogant **** not knowing what they're talking about

                                          I just bought a 150 dollar Need desk that was nearly 6 feet wide. Fits two monitors and my tower case.

                                            So here is a legit list:
                                            1.monitor,mouse,keyboard and ram is different in gaming.
                                            2.everything else is as strong as their non-gaming gpu or mobo is faster in their gaming variant.
