How to Build a Gamer’s Room

How to Build a Gamer’s Room

Today’s gamers realize their physical surroundings help them become more immersed in the game environment and look beyond just a fast PC to gain a competitive edge. Multiple screens, curved screens or large screens with stunning imagery and super-fast refresh rates, draw them into the action. Backlit displays add drama and subtle room lighting. Quality sound systems coupled with acoustical treatments delve the gamer into the realm while specialized seating reduces fatigue, adding to the experience. 

Of course, the essentials begin with a powerful PC or Gaming Console couple with a robust network, but it’s the entire environment that puts them in the middle of the action.
