There’s no point having an expensively assembled PC that can run graphics-intensive games at the highest frames per second if the experience is not enjoyable. Having a clunky keyboard, an uncomfortable headset, and noisy fans sure does sully the experience. If you’re sold on getting yourself some PC gaming accessories, we have some tips to help you make the most out of your purchase.
Here is how to pick the best PC gaming accessory:
1. Go for Known Brands
Brand is a big deal… and for good reason. Some brands have a better reputation than others. Stick to known brands as they’re less risky. Off-brand items are usually cheaper, but you really don’t know what you’re getting. You risk frying your PC.
2. Your Budget
You want the best, but the best costs money. And like most of us, you’re constrained by your budget. The best way to go about buying accessories is to go for the best gadgets that fall within your budget. You can always upgrade later if you need to. Keep in mind that the actual cost of a product is only one aspect of the total cost of ownership. Consider the durability, after-sales service, and running costs. You may find that what you thought was cheaper is actually more expensive to own.
3. Types of Games You Want to Play
Your taste in games should inform your choice of accessories. For example, if you play a lot of sim racing games, it will make sense to get a racing wheel.
Check the terms of the warranty. Ideally, you want to go with accessories that have a long warranty period. This way you’re covered in case they malfunction.
5. Return Policy
Find out how much it will cost to return the product if it turns out to be faulty. Include shipping costs and restocking fees. Also, find out how complicated the process is. You may find it easier or cheaper to buy another accessory than return the faulty one.
