Here's Everything You Need to Build Your Ultimate Gaming Setup

We’ve all been there, scrolling through Instagram and gaping in envy at the sleek, stylish setups shared. It’s perfectly natural to feel a little desire, especially when they look so good! Luckily, we have everything you need to cure that jealousy here at Overclockers UK. Just follow along and check off everything you need to build your own ultimate gaming setup. 

Here's Everything You Need to Build Your Ultimate Gaming Setup

Check Your System 

First things first – you can’t play any games if you don’t have a system to play them on! If you’re looking for your first gaming PC, we recommend the Refract Gaming Amber. This pre-built PC has been designed for entry-level gaming and is a great foundation for your gaming setup. Alternatively, consider a gaming laptop like the TUF Gaming F16. It still packs plenty of power to play your favourite games, with the added bonus of portability.
