Having assembled a PC with glowing internal components, which can be admired through the transparent side window of the case, it will be appropriate to get a set of gaming gadgets with RGB. The first candidates for purchase are a mouse and a keyboard. Lightweight perforated mice and keyboards with progressive optical switches are in fashion now. For the sound will be responsible headphones with ear cushions of anatomic foam and cardioid USB-microphone, which records a voice without background noise. Finally, all this can be beautifully placed on a gaming table with height adjustment for user's height.

Reasons to buy: 16000 DPI pre-flagship Pixart 3389 sensor, 20 million clicks Omron switches, only 60 grams weight.
Reasons not to buy: If you like the asymmetric shape.

Plus, the perforations improve palm ventilation during intense multiplayer matches. And customizable backlighting shines through the perforations.

Teflon feet glide equally well on carpet and table, and last a long time without rubbing off. The initial setup process is done through Cooler Master MasterPlus+'s proprietary app. The built-in ARM Cortex-M0 processor and 512 kB of flash memory allow you to store profiles directly in the mouse. No reconfiguration is required when connecting to another PC or laptop.

Reasons to buy: Wide frequency range of 60 Hz - 18 kHz, built-in spider mount, pop filter included.
Reasonsnot to buy: The backlight does not turn off.

Fifine AmpliGame A6V - condenser, or rather electret (a kind of condenser) microphone for multiplayer games, streaming, podcasts and just talking in voice chats like Zoom, Skype and Discord.

The frequency range is a solid 60-18000 Hz, and the sensitivity is -40±3 dB. Volume overload is handled well by the complete pop filter.

Built-in spider mounts level out vibration when typing on the keyboard. The microphone is mounted on a tripod with soft rubber feet. If desired, it can be transplanted to the flexibly adjustable Fifine BM63 pantograph stand (purchased separately). Connects via a removable USB Type-C to Type-A cable. In addition to desktops and laptops running Windows and macOS, PlayStation 4 and 5 game consoles are supported. The cherry on the cake is the shimmering RGB backlighting of the microphone.

Hator Rockfall EVO TKL Optical Mechanical Keyboard

Reasons to buy: Kailh Optical interchangeable 80 million clicks switches, metal base, spare PBT plastic keycaps.
Reasons not to buy: If you need a calculator for your profession.

The Hator Rockfall EVO TKL is a mechanical, or rather opto-mechanical keyboard. Initially positioned as a gamer keyboard, but in fact is great for all those who type a lot of text at the PC, The abbreviation TKL means Ten-keys-less, that is the absence of about ten keys of the calculator unit on the right. This reduces the length of the keyboard and thus frees up more space on the table for the mouse span, which is especially important in multiplayer shooters and MOBA games (Dota 2, League of Legends, SMITE).

The keyboard is based on a metal plate, which adds to the stiffness. Optical switches actuate in as little as 0.2 ms because a key press is not read after an electrical contact is closed, but after a beam of light is interrupted. The default settings are Kailh micro-switches with a lifetime of up to 80 million clicks. If you want you can replace them with any other with the same pinout. The Ukrainian alphabet is engraved. The package also includes interchangeable keycaps for the most frequently used in games keys made of non-erasable PBT-plastic.

Cougar Mars Height Adjustable Desk

Reasons to buy: Steel frame, height adjustment 75 - 85 cm, durable carbon coating.
Reasons not to buy: If you prefer classic furniture design.

Cougar Mars is a series of gamer tables that differ in size and slightly in functionality. For example, the usual Mars and Mars Pro differ in the presence of the second USB Type-C port, which also knows how to transmit a video signal from the laptop to the monitor. And the junior Mars 120 is shorter: 120 centimeters vs. 150 centimeters for the two senior models. Otherwise, these are equally ergonomic desks for avid gamers and those who have to work long hours in front of a computer. The height can be adjusted in three positions: 75, 80 and 85 cm, depending on the user's height.

The table can support up to 150 kg. You can put on it a heavy computer, an ultra-wide format monitor, a laptop, a gentleman's set of gaming peripherals - and still be left with a large margin of safety. Carbon fiber (carbon) coating of the table top makes it look impressive and resistant to abrasion. For quick connectivity, there are a couple of USB Type-A ports, audio jacks and RGB backlighting that can be synchronized with your PC.
