They say a bad workman blames his tools. Over the following two weeks, articles will be posted steering you towards the best accessories for PC gaming, so that your “tools” never let you down.


HyperX Cloud Revolver S, this headset is on the pricier side of things. But with comfort for the long run and 7.1 channel surround sound, you are getting value for money. The mic is detachable which you’ll find handy as it is positioned in a strange place.

SteelSeries Arctic Pro. In roughly the same price range as the HyperX Cloud, this headset promises a retractable boom microphone and Included DAC for music lovers. Its surround sound isn’t the greatest, but the added DAC makes it well worth the price, and one of the best headsets for gaming.

Logitech G Pro Gaming Headset, this is a lower priced headset. It is not pretentious as are other gaming headsets as Logitech decided to instead focus on performance than show. If you prefer quality and have a limited budget, this headset should tick all your boxes, and it is comfortable for the long haul.


First up we have the super pricey Logitech MX518. When buying this mouse, you’ll be paying for 16000cpi HERO sensor and an ARM 32-bit microprocessor which, when working together give a 1ms report rate. It also boasts eight customizable buttons.

The Logitech G203 Prodigy is a budget mouse, but only in price, not in quality. It has an 8000 cpi sensor which isn’t the greatest, but you’ll have to sacrifice something for a mouse that suits your budget. However, with this mouse, you get Logitech quality in a more affordable body which shape is tried and tested.

Razer Deathadder Elite, with a rather hefty price tag one wonders if you are paying for the intimidating name rather than a right gaming mouse. But rest assured you’ll find it packed with positives. It too has a 16000cpi sensor, which Razer should be saluted for. They chose a sensor collaborated and worked on by both Pixar and Logitech.


Razer Huntsman Elite is in the medium price range in the world of keyboards. It is a lightning fast, backlit, wired, keyboard with programmable keys. It uses two USB cables to power it up and has coupled optical sensors with mechanical buttons.

The Corsair K95 RGB Platinum keyboard is value for money. With its extra set of button caps and gorgeous build, it is sure to raise some eyebrows and attract some wolf whistles. Unfortunately, the large footprint doesn’t lend itself to be a feature on the more compact type of desks.

The ROG Strix Scope keyboard is one of the best choices for shooters. Its smaller design includes a full number pad. This keypad is high on the practicality scale while the unnecessary, yet attractive gimmicks are few and far between.
