When choosing a gaming desk consider the following 5 points:
Make sure that the height of the desk you choose is appropriate to your seating position. Posture is extremely important and you need to be comfortable while playing games to avoid any injuries or strains. Make sure you can fit a chair under the desk.
Here are a few correct sitting positions that set the least pressure on your body.
- Sit up straight and keep your hips far back in the chair.
- Adjust the chair height so your feet are flat on the floor and your knees are in line (or slightly lower) than your hips.
- The back of the chair should be reclined at a 100-110 degree angle.
- Ensure the keyboard is close and directly in front of you.
- To help your neck stay relaxed and in a neutral position, the monitor should be directly in front of you, a few inches above eye level.
- Correct posture is easier with the right chair. So ensure you have a chair with a backrest that supports your upper and lower back, adhering to the natural curve of your spine plus a supportive headrest.

You can choose a variety of gaming desk shapes, such as the rectangle, L-shaped, and U-shaped. Make sure the desk can keep all your gaming accessories such as joysticks, keyboards, steering wheels, gamepads, displays etc. organised plus also fit the space it is intended for.
Gaming equipment can be heavy, so you need a durable desk that is robust enough to support the weight of your all video games system, game racks, sound system, monitors, and all their accessories.
4) Electricity Installation
Setting up a perfect gaming desk means having a lot of wires and gadgets running from the power source to the desk. Look for a desk that has open shelving backs to easily allow cable management to and from media devices. Keep cables under control by using cable clips, zip ties etc.
Choose a hard wearing finish that resists chips, scratches, stains and water ring marks. Make sure the desk surface is easy to wipe down. Keeping your desk clean and dust free is essential.
