Choosing Your Gaming Peripherals Part 1

When it comes to competitive gaming, it’s very important to keep in mind that not only your PC build matters but also your gaming peripherals. Having a high-quality keyboard, mouse, and a headset is crucial in gaining an advantage over your opponents, no matter which game you’re playing. Today, we’ll go over some of my personal favorite and quality gaming peripherals you should definitely consider when building your gaming setup.

The Mouse

Having a good, responsive mouse is the most important part of your gaming setup. Choosing a mouse with high DPI and a quality optical sensor, while also keeping it in your budget is pretty tough nowadays, especially with so many gaming mice on the market. But, I’m here to make your choice much easier. Let’s go over some of the more mid-range gaming mice, that I personally think are very good for any gamer and any game.

This is the mouse I’m personally using right now, and I can’t really say anything bad about it. I have been using it for a couple of months now and it’s served its purpose to the fullest. With 12,000 DPI, you can tune it however you like, whether you’re playing competitive FPS games like CS:GO or Call of Duty, or maybe RTS games that require fast mouse movement and high DPI settings, like Starcraft 2, Logitech G502 will not disappoint. It also features a total of 3 side buttons for macroing in games.

This one is in the same price range as the Logitech G502 but focuses more on ergonomics and palm-feel instead of having a bunch of other options. It was made specifically for eSport games such as CS:GO and Call of Duty. It is the most comfortable mouse I have ever held in my hand, and it is definitely worth its price if that’s what you’re looking for, as long as you don’t mind the lack of side buttons.

In the next part, we’ll take a look into some of the more old-school gaming mice, which might be suitable for veteran gamers that are more used to the older style of gaming mice.
