Nothing beats sitting back, booting up your console or PC and diving into your favourite gaming worlds.

If you, like many of us, have found yourself spending more time than ever in your gaming setups, then you may be on the hunt for a few upgrades.


However, not every upgrade has to be an ultra-wide curved monitor, an OLED TV or the ultimate gaming headset - in fact, there are a few things that can make a big impact which you may not have considered...

Check these out.

Kontrol Freek Gaming Performance Thumbsticks - £13.99

UPGRADE - Get the advantage and bring home the win!

Warzone, Apex Legends, Fortnite...they are all equally frustrating to lose in, but incredibly addictive.

If battle royal games or FPS are your thing, then it makes sense to stack the odds (not bots) in your favour.


These Kontrol Freek Gaming Performance Thumbsticks can be easily attached to your PS4 or PS5 controller and serve to add height to your thumbsticks.

Why is that important? Well, it increases the arc length, which makes for more precise in-game movements and targetting.

Typically found for under £20, we think they're a great addition to the gaming arsenal.

Govee LED Lights - £14.44

QUICK CHANGE - Takes your setup to a whole new level

One of the quickest ways to transform your setup is with the right lighting, but you don't necessarily need to spend the world to get it.

These Govee led lights can be attached to the back of your monitor or TV to give an ambient glow which you can customise to whatever colour you'd like.

It comes with a small remote so you can change this on the fly, plus adjustable brightness settings too.

And if you place them on the back of your chosen display, it can help reduce eye strain when gaming into the night - win, win!

Headset Stand - £26.03

FITTING DISPLAY - And takes them out of harms way!

Now if you're anything like us, you may have already purchased a headset...however, where is that headset right now?


Again, if you're like us it may be unceremoniously laid on your couch, hooked over your TV, or dare we say...on the floor.

Headphone stands not only look great, but they take your headset out of the danger zone and actually provide a sort of 'plinth' for you to display them.

And with some headsets costing upwards of £100+, why not give them the throne they deserve?

Well there you have it, three gaming accessories you'd never thought you needed, but we think they all really add something to the mix!
