The best gaming desks you can buy
It doesn’t take much to dive into PC gaming — a laptop or desktop is usually the place to start. However, you’ll need a lot more space once you add mice, keyboards, and monitors to the mix. The best way to add real estate is with a dedicated gaming desk, which will be the heart of your battle station. Here are our picks for the best ones you can buy.
We’ve tried to cover a full range of shapes and sizes on our list, and many of these desks come with extra hooks for headsets and dedicated areas for keyboards. You can even choose the right leg shape to fit your gaming lair. Ready to upgrade your setup? Let’s go.
The best gaming desks:
Eureka Ergonomic Z1-S
Our first pick from Eureka Gaming is one of the smaller options, measuring in at 44.5-inches across. It’s the perfect gaming desk if you want a quality experience that is also very simple and looks cool. Just like all good gaming desks, it features RGB lighting, and you can stash your favorite drink in the mounted cupholder. It comes with a headset hook and borders. There’s even an included game and controller stand and a large mousepad.
Homall gaming 55-inch desk
Homall’s gaming desk isn’t quite as fancy when it comes to storage, but the 55-inch width is perfect for even the largest monitors. It sports sturdy T-shaped legs, so you won’t have to worry about knocking over your setup in the heat of battle. You can also stash your headphones in the underhanging hook and stay hydrated with the cupholder. If you need to store your controllers or your favorite games, Homall has a small mount on the top of the desk for easy storage.
AuAg gaming style desk
This next option from AuAg comes in with a width of 47-inches, and it easily features a unique Y-shaped leg design of the bunch. Like the others, the AuAg desk comes with a large mousepad and other essential accessories like a cupholder and a headphone hook. You can choose from six different RGB settings to match the rest of your battle station, but there are no handy storage shelves for your other accessories.

Arozzi is a trendy gaming desk brand, and for good reason. They offer quality and simplicity. The Arozzi Arena is a flat slab with a great design. You can plenty of space to arrange your monitors and accessories. The whole top is a keyboard and mouse mat, which is very impressive because it’s also water-resistant. You get a net (literally under the table) for cable management.
Uplift Desk V2
Sometimes the best gaming desk can be any quality desk. If you like standing desks with adjustable heights, Uplift is one of the biggest names in the industry. Their desks are a bit expensive, but they’re very well built, functional, and will look great anywhere you put them (this isn’t the case for desks with peculiar gaming aesthetics). The Uplift Standing Desk V2 comes in a variety of sizes. You can also customize the tabletop, leg color, and add a plethora of accessories.
Mr. IronStone L-shaped desk
If you prefer a multi-monitor setup or you want to bring both PC and console gaming to your desk, you might want to invest in an L-shaped unit. This option from Mr. IronStone doesn’t come with many bells or whistles, but it does offer an incredible amount of space. Each panel measures 51 inches across, and an 18-inch square connects the two. You’ll easily have enough room for everything you need, and you can elevate your laptop on the built-in shelf.
Thermaltake ToughDesk 300 RGB
Thermaltake makes great computer components, and their introduction to the desk space is equally impressive. It can handle up to 330lbs, and the surface is pretty large at 62.99 x 31.49 inches. The height is adjustable and features a quiet motor. And if you’re into the fancy RGB stuff, the whole outline has a strip that can be customized using Thermaltake’s software. It’s expensive, but this is definitely one of the best gaming desks out there.
The Cougar Mars offers a large surface space that is 1.5 meters wide. It also comes with awesome RGB lighting that will make your set-up look as awesome as any streamer’s. The carbon fiber texture can hold a tighter grip on your peripherals, and the steel frame promises great stability.
Eureka Gaming Z60 desk
Eureka’s Z60 is a monster of a desk, measuring 60-inches wide by 24-inches deep. It packs dynamic RGB lighting that you can adjust yourself, and the Z-shaped legs offer plenty of stability. You’ll have to buy your accessories separately, but the cable management system, included mousepad, and armor system around the edges are nice touches.
Lian Li DK-05FX
The Lian Li DK-05FX is easily one of the best gaming desks you can find, and it happens to be one of the most desired ones in the market. This is because it doubles as a computer case, so you can build a PC right into it. Not only that, but the glass top is transparent, and you can enjoy the view of your internal components whenever you’re using it. It comes complete with ports and buttons to control your power, RGB lighting, and fan controls. It’s also height-adjustable and features an aluminum body that’s as sturdy as they get. It’s also costly, but it’s totally worth its price for any serious PC aficionado.
