Video games are better than anyone could’ve conceptualized twenty years ago. Ten years ago, even. It’s gotten to the point that the software is so good, the hardware often needs to catch up.

The burden of responsibility, when it comes to video game enjoyment is in some ways shared between developers and consumers.

We trust that the people who make our games know what they are doing—creating worlds as rich and vivid as our own. Time and time again they have proven this expectation to be a worthy one.

But as the technology continues to improve and progress the way we experience it, the hardware itself, needs to undergo a similar evolution.

Today we look at essential gaming equipment that will help you maximize your user experience.

Tri Monitor Setup

Ahh, the coveted tri-monitor setup. Video game worlds are just too rich to be experienced from a single screen.

Investing in extra monitors is an outstanding way to maximize your experience with your video games. However, there are some caveats to bear in mind as you look to integrate the extra equipment into your setup.

For one thing, you need to make sure that the rest of your operating system is up to the task of supporting the gear.

Most computers and graphics cards made in the last ten years or so shouldn’t have any trouble supporting the three screens, but be mindful of the spec requirements all the same.

The last thing you want to do is to spend a bunch of money on equipment you can’t even use.

You’ll also need to consider the constraints of the physical location where you game. So if you’re like most gamers, your desk barely has room for a can of Mountain Dew, let alone a couple more screens.

Who’d ever have thought that so much thinking would need to go into buying a simple screen, right? But it’s time and money well spent.

SSDs

Another essential piece of hardware that will levitate your gaming experience is an SSD. As opposed to regular hard drives, these cards are quicker, and more optimized for efficiency, with no moving parts to spin away and break down.

Operation is clean and quick, making load times in games sharply reduced. The idea is always to spend less time in front of a load screen, more time exploring the vast, wonderful worlds of your favorite video games. SSD cards are one of the easiest, most affordable ways to make this happen.

Most often, there’s not much difference between the top providers other than the disk space available. If, however, you’re looking for an educated opinion, here’s an SSDs for gaming round-up you’ll enjoy.

Gaming Headphones

The sound quality is also an important factor for any gamer. A good pair of gaming headphones will make your experience more immersive while also allowing you to keep in touch with the online gaming world, if indeed this is something you’re inclined to do.

About 22% of PC gamers spend the majority of their time on multiplayer games. If you want to connect with them a good head set isn’t optional.
