Hey Epic Geeks,

It’s my birthday month. I always stumble over my words and thoughts when someone asks “what do you want for your birthday?”. Because of that, I decided I’d make a mini-series of gifts that will work for any occasion. There is a variety in the price range, but I can assure you, they’re all extremely appreciated. Today’s topic is the gifts PC gamers will appreciate.

Part 1: Bloggers
Part 2: PC Gamers

If you’re looking for gifts to give someone who isn’t a gamer (or maybe for yourself), here are some of my other posts that might be helpful are 5 Bookcases I WantHarley Quinn POP! figuresDoctor Who Items I Want.


Mechanical Keyboard (rec: Logitech G910)

Mechanical keyboards are life savers. Literally. When you’re gaming, you want the quickest reaction time possible. Sometimes you, the gamer, can have great reaction time and then your keyboard (and mouse, but we’ll get to that) can slow you down.

Mechanical keyboards last for a while. Personally, I’ve owned the Logitech G710 ($98) for a few years. I would love to upgrade to the Logitech G910 though. The G910 is RGB, meaning it will light up all the fancy colors you want.

My fiance, Zach (also a gamer), is a Razor fan. He has used the Razor Blackwidow ($69) for a long time and just recently upgraded to the Razor Chroma V2 ($140). The Chroma V2 is also RGB.


5+ Button Mouse (REC: Logitech G502)

Every gamer needs at least a five button mouse. It’s as simple as that.

Zach and I usually keep it around five buttons. I personally own the Logitech G500s. Her used the Logitech G500 for years and just recently upgraded to the Logitech G502.

The purpose of a multi-button mouse is to make gaming easier. You can program those buttons to whatever you want them to be. I tend to play more first person shooters. My push-to-talk button is “button 3”, the button next to my thumb.

In the MMORPG world, like World of Warcraft, the gamer may benefit from having a 20 button mouse like the Logitech G600 or a 19 button mouse like the Razor Naga.


Headset

Before getting my Blue Yeti (mentioned below), I was an avid headset user just like many gamers. When you’re gaming, especially in first person shooters, you want to be able to hear footsteps but also be able to communicate with your teammates.

Zach and I both used the Steel Series Siberia v2 for the last few years. He just recently upgraded to the Steel Series Arctis 5. The Steel Series Arctis 7 was only beat out due to price..

I’ve also tried and loved the Logitech G430. The Logitech G930 is also an amazing headset with the ease of having a wireless option.


Microphone (Rec: Blue Yeti Microphone)

I personally use decent quality earbuds (currently only $14) and a Blue Yeti Microphone. I absolutely love the quality and the ease.

If you want a cheaper starter microphone, the Blue Snowball is an amazing option for around $50 (sometimes cheaper with deals)!


Gift cards

If you have no idea what your gamer wants or they have everything in the world, don’t feel bad about giving them gift cards to buy the games, collectibles, or anything else they’re wanting.

Steam: $20$50$100

Blizzard: $20 $50

Amazon: ANY AMOUNT (:
