The Desk Setup That Every Young Gamer Wants

In the quest for the perfect desk setup, there are a lot of factors to consider. You want to enhance your play with comfort and adaptability to various games and tasks. Don’t settle for a setup with a poor half-life. 

If you want your human self to pwn as good as your digital self – check out this desk set up for the optimum gaming space. Don’t give me any of that TL;DR bs, this article is for you.

The Desk

First off, upgrade that desk from the wobbly hand-me-down. It’s a griefer. Your desk is the foundation of the rest of your system. It’s got to be sturdy and come with extra perks for tech bonus features. 

Omnidesk 2020 Pro

Knocking other desks out of the park is the Omnidesk 2020 Pro. Increase your area of effect with one of the three desk dimension options of 48”, 60”, and a killer 72”. 

There’s a lot of room for customization mod work on this piece and a magnitude of accessories to choose from. To name a few options:

  • Motorized power bars
  • LED light system
  • Cable management bars
  • Desk risers
  • PC mount and Headphone hanger
  • Monitor arms 

Choose a tabletop colour in black or white, or go full Midsts of Pandaria with a bamboo top. Whichever way you go, you’ve got a great zone for the rest of your gaming setup to live in. 

One of the worst things about gaming is wait times. You’re ready to play but you’ve got an unexpected upgrade to download. The wait time on this desk is FTW with a shipping time of 5-9 days flat pack delivery. The 100-day risk-free trial and 3-year warranty lock in the deal. 

The Omnidesk 2020 Pro for this article was sourced from AFTERSHOCK PC, the Australian distributors of Omnidesk, who were also kind enough to supply a set of flexible RGB LED strip to enhance the gaming experience. The 12/24V LED strip is capable of displaying 16 million colours and supports a wide range of applications as well as including an IR remote control sensor.

The Monitor

The desk is locked and loaded. Now to hit auto-attack on the monitor situation. Don’t be a newbie when it comes to your game display. A cheap monitor can hold you back and now you risk choob-status because of your choices. 

Dual Asus ROG Strix XG27UQ Gaming Monitor

Double the trouble with a dual Asus ROG Strix XG27UQ Gaming Monitor setup. Why dual monitors? You might want that game guide open on the left while you aggro on the right. Or you know, you’re being productive with homework and have Cliff Notes on the left and that term paper on the right. Maybe…but back to gaming. 

These features will have you saying “ZOMG!”

  • 27” 4K IPS with 144Hz refresh rate for that silky smooth gameplay
  • Ultra-high def video streaming
  • HDR tech with major color performance
  • Adaptive sync for streamlined gaming
  • 1 ms response time

Whether you are deep into Minecraft or streaming Ready Play One (or hitting that dual monitor perk by doing both at the same time), the visual quality on this monitor is epic. 

The in-game enhancements on this monitor include:

  • Shadow boost: improving dark areas while maintaining the light areas
  • Extreme low motion blur: sharpens objects in motion
  • Gamevisual: Seven display modes give you options for various content
  • Gameplus: integrated hotkeys developed by pro gamers give you a better gaming experience

It’s not going to take a coder to figure out how to use these monitors to the best of their potential. Easy to tweak Display Widget gives you quick access to controls and display modes. Quickly sync your specific apps and games to display modes for fuss-free gaming. 

Take care of those goggles that biology gave you valuable eye care features:

  • Multiple blue light filter levels that are easy to access from the Display Widget
  • The flicker-free screen takes the burden off your eyes and into the machine

Gameplay needs to be seamless and tear-free. This monitor delivers with its ultra-fast refresh rate and response time. That’s some sweet AP. 

 The Keyboard

Be real – your keyboard could use some buffing. Remember that facepalm feeling when you keyboard lags or sticks and you get shelled? No more armadillo label for you! G4I on this Logitech G512 Carbon Keyboard made specifically for gaming. 

You don’t only get the looks with its customizable reactive lighting, you also get the feel with its responsiveness and aircraft-grade aluminium alloy. It’s sturdy, won’t slip when you flip out IRL, can quick-toggle game mode, and has sweet customizable functions. 

This keyboard is a well-fitted arsenal of features:

  • USB pass-through data and power connections for charging devices or powering a mouse
  • Lightsync customizable multicolour light work 
  • 3 Switch types to choose from
  • Function keys for volume, play/pause, and game mode 

The keyboard is your ticket into the digital world. It’s how you maneuver, loot, and wsp to your pals. There is no quality to sacrifice! 

Mouse Pad

Logitech Large Cloth Gaming Mousepad

That ratty old mousepad is out of mana. It’s time to move on – it’s not going to respawn. Have a respectful service and bury it in the backyard. Uplevel to the Logitech Large Cloth Gaming Mousepad. Its spacious area and low profile give you plenty of space for all that mouse swivel-action. 

Yes, a mousepad really can enhance your gameplay. The texture and moderate surface friction on this pad improve your ability for rapid starts and stops during low-DPI gaming. 

Don’t get goofy with those photo-laden mousepads, as the design could interfere with your mouse’s sensor. The smooth black cloth is where it’s at. Forget leather too. You can skin all you want in the game, but IRL let’s keep the animal skin on the NPCs. 

The flexible construction and rubber back material make this mousepad slip-proof and durable. The edges are soft and won’t dig into your wrist when you’re grinding away in a 40-man raid. 

We went this far with accessorising with Logitech so may as well go the full distance. We paired the mousepad and keyboard with the Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse. This is a great mouse and addition to the young gamers setup. The Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse is comfortable to use and accommodates a range of grip types and hand sizes.

The Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse is the perfect accompaniment to the Logitech Large Cloth Gaming Mousepad

When it comes to supreme gameplay, it’s all or nothing. You’ve got to farm the best items to support you in the digital world. Otherwise, your fate is in the hands of your setup. Upgrade your gamer setup from n00b to boss … it’s ezpz.
