Size and Shape:

One of the most important things to consider when looking for a gaming desk is the size and shape of the desk. A larger desk will provide more room for your gaming setup, while a smaller desk may be more space-efficient. Take into account what peripherals you use and how many monitors you have for your set up.  Additionally, you may want to look for a desk with a curved or L-shaped design, as these can provide a more comfortable gaming experience.

Material:

The material of the gaming desk is also an important factor to consider. Desks made from high-quality.  Materials like steel for the legs and thick solid board woods are durable and can withstand the wear and tear of gaming. Additionally, desks made from glass or other transparent materials can create a sleek, modern look but may be better suited to an office environment.

This is especially true if you’re a bit over competitive.

Adjustability:

Another key feature to look for in a gaming desk is adjustability. Being able to adjust the height of the desk can help you find the perfect position for gaming, while a desk with adjustable legs can help you level the desk on an uneven floor. Height adjustable desks are a fantastic addition, and can provide health benefits if you are spending many hours gaming.

Cable Management:

As a gamer, you likely have a lot of cables running to your devices. A gaming desk with built-in cable management can help keep your cables organised and out of the way, which can make your gaming experience more comfortable. If you are a streamer or content creator you likely have even more cables to work with that the typical gamer so an optimised neat and tidy set up is essential.

Mouse Pad:

Many gaming desks come equipped with a built-in mouse pad, which can be a great feature for gamers who prefer to use a mouse. Mouse pads can provide an additional quirky aesthetic to your desk depending on the print, but most of all it will protect your desktop and mouse from wear.

RGB Lights:

Definitely not an essential, but we all know RGB lights in a gaming desk can give you more FPS and make you place better* as well as an immersive gaming experience for players. It can also be an attractive feature for people who like to have good ambient lighting.

Headphone Hooks:

Another feature which is again not essential but definitely useful for a gaming desk is a headphone hook. This can be helpful for keeping your headphones within reach and reducing clutter on your desk. Especially when using wired headsets to keep the cables away from those deadly gaming chair castors

Cup Holder:

A cup holder can also be a handy feature for gaming desks, as it allows you to keep your drink close by while you play. Without running the risk of spilling your favourite caffeinated beverage all over your new RGB Gaming Keyboard.

Brand reputation:

Finally, one of the most important things to consider when looking for a gaming desk is the reputation of the brand. Look for brands with a good reputation for quality and customer service. Check out the reviews and customer experience, as a dedicated gamer its likely you will spend countless hours in front of this desk so make sure the company will support you for years to come.

Ergonomics:

Gaming can take hours and can put a lot of strain on your body. Look for a gaming desk that is designed with ergonomics in mind, and that can help you maintain proper posture and reduce the risk of injury. Some desks come with features such as adjustable feet to give you a comfortable gaming experience. A healthy body = More Dubs.


Overall, there are many features to consider when looking for a gaming desk. The above are just some of the more important ones to keep in mind when making your decision. Make sure you consider your own needs and preferences as well as the overall design and quality of the desk.
