Check out my PC gaming rig! (2016)

I have always been a PC gamer at heart, console ‘peasants’ will never know what they are missing. PC gamers have the benefits of cheaper games, more variety of games, modding support, advanced graphics options, uncapped refresh rates, and of course... the mouse & keyboard. Check out my gaming rig below!

1. Alienware Aurora
Built to order computer with customisable colours on desktop case. My pc is coming up to 5 years old now so I have an out of date CPU. The closest I could find was the Area51 machine if you don't fancy building one yourself.

I decided to go full Chroma with Razers peripheral set.

  • Deathadder Chroma - rated the best overall gaming mouse with a comfortable ergonomic design
  • Kraken Chroma - 7.1 surround sound headset with retractable mic with mute button
  • Firefly - Hard gaming mouse mat that has to be plugged in!

Cycle through all of the colours with Philips Iris, 1x light is more than enough for a single room
