The best entry-level PC gaming setup

Do you prefer to play at home behind your desk and are you looking for a real gaming setup, then you need a few accessories. I explain what you need to make your first gaming PC complete.

Gaming desktop

Your gaming desktop is of course the showpiece of your gaming setup. Choose a gaming PC within your budget with the best video card that you can afford. That way you can be sure that you will also play games that will be released in the coming years with high settings.

The Erazer P66017 lights up blue while gaming, giving this desktop a tough appearance.


With a gaming monitor you benefit from a high refresh rate, a fast response time and little input lag. The higher the refresh rate, the smoother the screen your game displays, useful when you play shooters such as Call of Duty. There are also a cool gaming appearance to complete your setup. Gaming monitors are specially developed to offer you the best gaming experience, but they can of course also be used for all your (school) work and for browsing.

Gaming mouse

You make the difference with a good mouse. When it comes down to it, whether you win or lose depends on how quickly you move your mouse. Some gaming mice are made for precise movements or very fast movements, while other mice have many extra buttons. As a starting gamer, you choose a mouse that sits a bit in between, so that you have the best of all worlds and find out what you use most yourself.
