4 accessories to take your PC gaming to the next level
Be a games master with our top gaming accessories. The headsets, steering wheels and keyboards to give you ultimate control, comfort and sound experience…
1. Headsets for sublime sound effects
In a nutshell: Be ahead of the game with crystal clear sound that always has your back
HyperX changed the game for headsets with its Cloud back in 2014. Today’s Cloud Alpha is a worthy successor.
Enjoy marathon gaming sessions in comfort with the snug fit and padded design. Hear every detail with dual chamber technology separating the bass from the mids and highs.
It works with Dolby Atmos to give you ultimate clarity on positional sound in games like Overwatch. Notice the subtle differences in volume of enemy footsteps to stay across threats. It’s got your back.
The HyperX Cloud Revolver S is another excellent option with a chic and minimalist retro design.

2. Mechanical mice and custom keyboards
In a nutshell: Be at one with your game with ultra responsive controls at your fingertips – play in the moment
Want to feel your game with every tap of the mouse and strike of the key? Look to the latest products from PC gaming icon Razer.
‘Mechanical switches’ can be found at the core of its BlackWidow Chroma keyboard and DeathAdder mouse. These switches deliver a more responsive, accurate and satisfying gaming experience. Plus they tend to be more robust and can keep up with you regardless of the game.
This is because each key has an individual switch and metal spring – unlike those keyboards with a single sheet of rubber beneath the keys.
What’s more, the Chroma puts a spectrum of 16.8 million colour options at your fingertips – from twinkling starlight to a ripple effect - that are worked into actual games rather than simply looking cool.
Want more accurate control over your gaming? Razer’s DeathAdder Elite Optical Gaming Mouse is incredibly responsive - ensuring you land more killing blows with pinpoint precision.
3. Steering wheel for the real-life feel
In a nutshell: Steer out of the corner and feel the car shake and judder as you grip the wheel
Fan of Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsports? These iconic motorsports games are great however you play. But to do them proper justice look to Logitech – legends of automotive add-ons.
Your virtual car will run like it’s on rails with the Driving Force G920 wheel and gearstick bundle. Put the pedal to the metal and go through the gears, as you pull out of a corner and into the home straight.
And if the corner is tight, you’ll feel the judder and shake at the back end as your swing out with force feedback built in to the wheel.

4. Gaming chair for playing with flair
In a nutshell: Comfortable, stable and flexible – get the chair to match your premium gaming rig
You’re focused on your gaming session. Your console or PC is delivering superb graphics at incredibly fast frame rates. Pin-sharp audio is amplified from your headset. Your commands, clear down your microphone. But you can’t get comfy.
Old office and dining chairs aren’t designed for marathon gaming sessions. The Arozzi Verona is a proper gaming chair.
- Stable and secure for demanding gaming sessions
- Comfortably padded and ergonomically shaped
- Adjustable arms and headrests for customisable fit
