1. Hardware

Don’t underestimate the importance of a system that keeps up with your thirst for victories. Therefore, the first step towards a respectable gaming setup is choosing the right hardware, after all, it will be the engine of your setup.

  • Processor: to ensure efficiency and fluidity in games, check if the model is state-of-the-art;
  • RAM: it must be at least 8 GB, but the ideal is to have the option to expand if necessary;
  • Storage: games are heavy, so opt for a device with more than 500 GB;
  • GPU: image quality without stutters, requires a dedicated video card with current chipsets. They are what will determine the speed at which the GPU can process information.

  • Update Rate: For those who play competitive games, a refresh rate starting at 90 Hz is ideal for not missing any shots;
  • Response time: In this regard, the shorter the time, the better it is to play. Look for monitors with a response time between 1 and 5 milliseconds.

The Acer Nitro 27′ Zeroframe gaming monitor stands out in this regard. If every detail can make the difference between victory and defeat, better invest in the best weapon, right?

Quality sound is essential when it comes to maintaining focus and immersion in games. Therefore, when choosing a headset it is good to look at:

  • Response frequency: to not lose any audio from the game, or what your team is saying, the best frequency is between 20 Hz-20 Khz;
  • Drivers: To guarantee a clear sound and be able to hear both bass and treble well, 40 to 50mm drivers are the best;
  • Noise Cancellation: Nobody wants to hear their neighbors fighting while playing, right? So, noise cancellation is key;
  • Sensitivity: To set your ideal audio volume without losing quality, choose a device with sensitivity between 95 and 105 dB.
