1. Make your own gaming computer

2. Choose the right desktop

Another thing to consider is the desktop you’re going to be using. One may think is not as important, but trust me, it actually is. You can find the importance of having the best gaming desk from the moment you start playing (it doesn’t mean you will become the best gamer automatically but yeah, it will improve your skills and development while gaming).

Having a high-quality desk will assist in better posturing and prevent all those awful back pain. So what if you’re seated hours in front of your screen, at least you’re doing it the right way.

3. PC gaming

When you are playing on a PC instead of a console, there’s no guarantee that the game will run, most of them do it well. Here is one of the most common problems while PC gaming and how to fix it:

Artifacts or glitches, can be easily identified by a graphical weirdness. The image will look pixelated or colored, if you have these problem chances are that the video card is cluttering the information that has been receiving from the game, check if you have an outdated driver, and nevertheless check if other gamers have had the same problems you did and the possible solutions to it.

4. About lag while gaming

Another one and this one is particularly annoying because it can be really subtle, YES, we are talking about the online lag, for example, you are fighting and you start pushing the buttons and nothing happens, right after a moment everything starts to happen but your opponent is no longer there, this is call online lag. The main reason for this one is the internet connection. How fast is your broadband? If you know you will have a low connection while you are on the WIFI, try connecting on Ethernet.

5. Screen Tearing

The last one on the list is when you faced with screen tearing – you can detect if you are having this problem because the screen will look like the bottom part of it has split leaving you with the bottom and top half. The principal reason for  this situation is that you had played too much. Most of the computers refresh their images 60 Hz per second, if you don’t want to encounter this kind of problem, think of buying a PC gaming monitor that are usually around 120hz per second (these are the number of frames per second).

Be careful while buying gaming stuff online. There are many sellers that don’t offer quality products (like video games, used consoles, controllers, PC’s, bad deliveries, etc.) You need to check the seller’s reputation, maybe reading some reviews from his old clients or checking his profile. There are many websites and tools that can help you to avoid this issues like ShipDig that will track your order’s postal service, location, addresses, hours, phone numbers, etc.

And finally, if you are a gamer or you just want to have fun, enjoy it! There are many reasons why gaming raises your happiness levels and reduce the stress. Hope you found it useful and now just star gaming like a pro.
