Top Tech Accessories for Video Games

Whether you are an avid video game player or just a casual participant, you know that your hardware can mean the difference between domination and defeat.  In recent years, gaming technology has advanced at such a rapid rate that your options are seemingly endless. With so many models, it can be hard to choose what will work best for you. Computer gamers need lightning-fast processors, and advanced graphics and console gamers need optimum viewing angles and accessories to enhance their play. Below, the experts at CPR Cell Phone Repair breakdown the top technology offered for video games.

Computer Video Games

With thousands of free online and multi-player games, the popularity of computer video games has surged in the past decade. These computers best support online video games by offering power, speed, and stunning graphics.

Best Gaming PCs

Gaming purists still insist that the only way to truly push the levels of a game’s graphic quality and horsepower is with a PC or desktop computer.

Corsair One Pro

An industry leader in gaming PCs, Corsair has been producing quiet yet powerful machines for years. The Corsair One Pro is the cream of the crop when it comes to gaming PCs, complete with a Nvidia GTX 1080 graphics card, an i7-7700 and 16GB of DDR4 memory. The only downside of the computer: the price. The Corsair One Pro retails for $1,799.00.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube

If you’re looking for a good gaming PC but are on a budget, the Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube could be the perfect one for you. The Y710 cube is versatile; its mobile handle allows for portability, and its powerful processor enables impressive multitasking. The Y710 Cube provides users with lag-free online gaming and super sharp graphics. The basic model starts at $839.00.

Best Gaming Laptops

Thanks to Wi-Fi options, affordable technology, and portable devices, computer video gaming is no longer a stationary sport.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 packs an impressive punch of gaming performance into a low-cost laptop. With an impressive battery life, revamped design and the latest graphics, this laptop is perfect for gaming-on-the-go.

Acer Nitro 5

The Acer Nitro 5 laptop is meant for casual gamers; the ones who can’t justify spending thousands of dollars on a device they use occasionally.  In the budget gaming market, the Nitro 5 takes the cake. The machine boasts a 15.6-inch, 1080p display screen, the newest generation of NVIDIA graphics and up to 32GM of RAM storage all for under $800.00.

Razer Blade Pro

A true multi-tasker, the Razer Blade Pro can be used for gaming, work or pleasure. This laptop is super thin—less than one inch thick—and features state of the art graphics, a 17.3-inch, 4K-resolution display, and customizable components thanks to Razer’s Synapse software.

Console Video Games 

Console video games have come a long way from their cartridge-based ancestors. Though console games have been around for a least four decades, they remain ever popular.

Best Monitors for Gaming Consoles

As a console gamer, you’re looking for a monitor that can deliver game-winning latency of 5 milliseconds or less—also known as response time. Your gaming monitor also needs to match the image-enhancing software of your graphics card. And a large display screen doesn’t hurt either.

Samsung CF591

For a truly immersive viewing experience, the Samsung CF591, with a 27-inch, curved, LED screen, is a perfect option. Samsung CF591’s AMD FreeSync technology serves up an advanced gaming experience by minimizing input latency and reducing image tearing. Plus, with built-in speakers, a 3,000:1 static contrast ratio and 4ms response time, it may be hard to find a better monitor.

Acer XR

Sometimes in gaming, bigger is better. And with a 34-inch, UltraWide QHD resolution, curved screen, the Acer XR is certainly bigger. The Acer XR also features a DisplayPort output, ECO mode and a three-year warranty. But as you may expect, the price is bigger well.

Best Headsets for Gaming Consoles

Multi-player gamers need to communicate with their team members at all times. These gaming headsets are comfortable enough to wear for hours on end, provide crystal clear audio and more.

SteelSeries Siberia 800

The Siberia 800 is a versatile wireless gaming headset, able to be used on all platforms, from gaming consoles to desktop computers to smartphones. The cushy padding provides ultimate comfort during long wear and the 7.1 surround sound produces excellent audio.

Astro Gaming A50

Experience the clarity of Dolby 7.1 surround sound with the Astro Gaming A50 headset. With three different EQ modes, uni-directional, noise canceling microphone and high frequency, 5.8 GHZ wireless technology, the A50 headset is great for console video games.
