And to be honest this is not an easy task to perform an answer in a short way by just saying that the gadgets which help us playing PC games in winning strategies called gaming accessories. Therefore, I decided to organize an elaborative platform by writing an article named Accessories to Become a Good Gamer.

“Gaming is a serious business. The Game Industry alone is worth US$74 billion (yes with a b) in 2011 and the numbers are rising”.Hongkiat

Here we have a list of gaming sensations;

  • Mice
  • Keyboards
  • Headsets

Gaming Mice

The gaming mice come in different types like FPS, RTS, MMO, RPG, MOBA and so on. All these pointing devices unreluctantly give supporting moments in between your gaming bouts.

FPS is used for the First Person Shooter games like Call of Duty, MAX Pyne, Counter Strike and so on. On the other hand, RTS mouse which provides you an assistance to play real-time Strategic games like Age of Empires I&II, Company of Heroes, Supreme Commander and so on. MOBA which stands for Multiplayer Online Battle Arena and also known as ARTS is the sub-genre of RTS (Real-time strategy). We use MOBA for playing League of Legends, DOTA II, Heroes of Storm and Logitech G302 mouse is the perfect match for taking part in MOBA games.

Gaming Keyboard

The keyboards come in two variants mechanical and membrane. But if I say that mechanical keyboards are specifically designed for the gaming purposes, it won’t be a wrong statement. The reason is quite obvious, the membrane keyboards have little bit flimsy keypads which take little more effort to press. But mechanical boards contain mushy keypads and provide a favorable environment for the gamers. A gaming keyboard can easily be recognized by just putting the following characteristics on the line.

  • Anti-ghosting effect
  • Clickety behaviour
  • Illuminating factor
  • Wrist-rest

In most of the games, for example, EA Sports Cricket 2007 and FIFA World Cup, it needs to press more than one keys simultaneously and a gaming keyboard makes us available with such a feature to be known as Anti-ghosting. Through this utility, we can compress multiple keys at once.

Clickety behavior keeps us safe from not to lose the game due to the incomplete pressing of a switch in a crucial state when you are somewhat closer to the winning boundaries. Due to the responsive switches of a keyboard, each and every click perfectly gets registered.

Lastly, if a gaming enthusiast wishes to play the games late at night, he gets advantage from the illuminating keypads. This does not end up here, the lighting can be settled for the best of sight. And of course, Wrist-rest factor ensures the comfortability and not to get tired of prolonging usage of the keyboard.

Gaming Headsets

The best the hearings, the fine the working capabilities and the winning shots are easier to perform during gamings. For this concern, gaming headsets won’t let anyone down by delivering a staggering sound quality. The best gaming headset will surely accommodate following specs;

  • Microphone
  • Distortion-free sound
  • Portability
  • Comfortability

As gaming headset are the most important gaming peripherals out there so you cannot permit anything regarding its sound quality or microphone quality or surround sound quality.ListSplash

Microphone utility gives strength not to disconnect your friends and family members while playing video games. You can have chit chat session during gamings.

The headsets come in three different varieties which are worth to be mentioned below;

  • In-Ear
  • On-Ear
  • Over-Ear

In-Ear fits into the ears completely having earcups of size up to 10mm like Sennheiser Momentum. On-Ear cover our ear completely without leaving any kind of space inside and earcups diameter is approximately 30-35mm for example V-Moda XS. Over-Ear is large enough to encompass our ear leaving room inside and have a magnitude up to 50mm, for instance, Sony MDR-1A.

Graphics Card

Graphics cards are also known as Gaming Processing Unit (GPU), the most cardinal gaming peripheral devices. Let me quote here the expert’s opinion what would he says about the graphics cards;

“The CPU may be the brain of your PC, but when it comes to gaming, the graphics card is the beating heart that pumps pixels out of your obelisk of a tower and into your monitor”.PCGAMER

A video card will be carried following sub-features inside;

  • Cooling factor
  • Durability
  • Performance
  • Power efficiency

In the recent GPUs, more than one fans, with latest technologies like Twin Frozr V, are used to keep the system cool. Such technological fan minimizes the heat consumption and facilitates us with an opportunity to enjoy our gaming periods without having much power dissipation.

The ASUS Strix GTX 950 and GTX 950 Gaming G1 are some benchmarks which encompass all the feature one might expect from a high definition quality GPU.

Gaming Glasses

Gaming glasses are the objects, a gaming enthusiast must use while having a gaming period. I am adding this as the precautionary gadget because this protects eyes from the weakening of eyesight. This saves your eyes from the glare of computer or TV screen as well.

“Gaming glasses prevent glare-induced headaches that are usually caused  too much continuous light reaching the eyes”.puregaming

These glasses must have following distinct hallmarks;

  • Make visibility clearer
  • Generate more color contrasts
  • Prevent eyes from drying out

GAMMA Ray 003 and AV Super 2 Pack flawlessly meet the above-specified features.
