Aside from the PC itself, the most fundamental part of any gamer’s setup is the computer desk. If you don’t think a table can drastically improve your gaming experience than you have obviously never owned a high-quality PC desk. But, while deciding to buy one is a no-brainer, choosing the best model for your needs can turn into a lasting headache.
For a portable model, the Origami’s 100lb weight capacity is quite impressive. It also features a CPU shelf that supports another 75 pounds and is designed to keep your PC tower above the floor for dust control.
It takes just a minute to fully assemble the Origami, and you can fold it for storage in even less time. When folded, it measures about six inches in height. Combined with its lightweight design, the folding mechanism allows you to store it in a closet or even underneath your bed.
Though the tabletop is just a piece of laminated particleboard, it stands on top of a solid steel frame. Backed by a 12-month warranty, the RDE-01 is among the most reliable and time-tested gaming desks in its class.
#9 – Z-Line Designs Vance L Desk
Z-Line Designs is a leading specialty furniture manufacturer known for durable, aestheticly designed products, and the L-shaped Vance computer desk is no exception. Thanks to a sleek finish and black power coat, the contemporary-style desk can blend into virtually any kind of interior design.
Though it’s larger than similar models, most of its surface is clear tempered glass and its main storage shelves are easily detachable. Therefore, this Z-Line desk wont make your room seem cramped. In fact, with two flip-up storage compartments and 250 pounds of weight capacity, it might actually save space in the long run.
About a third of the tabletop surface is made of steel, which provides more than enough support for heavy equipment. If you like the visual appeal of glass but use a clip-on display, the Vance is a perfect choice.
#8 – Walker Edison Soreno 3-Piece Corner Desk
Technically, this is an office desk, but it provides enough space for a gaming setup in addition to a number of extremely convenient features. The Soreno furniture line is Walker Edison’s best seller. It couples a modern, minimalistic look with an efficient, highly practical design.
The tabletop consists of three pieces of black tapered safety glass. Each panel is beveled and polished, making it extra tough and virtually scratch-proof. Aside from the frame that houses these panels, every other part is 100% stainless steel with a crisp powercoat finish.
Made with flexibility in mind, the L-shaped desk comes with an autonomous computer tower stand and a sliding keyboard tray. You can even mount the tray to either side of the Soreno for maximum comfort
Arozzi Arena Gaming Desk
Designed for seasonned hardcore gamers, the Arozi Arena is the golden standard of computer desks. For starters, it boasts 14.1 square feet of tabletop surface and a weight capacity of 176 pounds. That’s enough for an immersive three-monitor setup.
Every inch of the tabletop is covered with microfiber cloth, an ideal mousepad surface. The cloth is waterproof, machine washable and easy to detach. Both the giant mousepad and the rena’s frame come in five different color schemes.
The Arena’s djustable frame let you choose the perfect desk height. Meanwhile, a pair of wide support beams with non-slip coating guaranty stability during gameplay.
Underneath the tabletop, there are three cutouts meant to host mounting arms for monitors. Alternatively, these compartments can be used to store the mess of cables that surround a proper gaming area.
#6 – Denise Austin Home Phoenix Desk
This rectangular computer table is covered by a seamless panel of clear tapered glass and supported by a welded iron frame. Combined, these materials not only guarantee stability but also make the desk visually appealing. A slick charcoal finish covers everything except the chrome tabletop mounts.
With over 12 square feet of surface space, the Home Phoenix can easily accomodate a large setup. And its extra-thick tapered glass can handle up to 105 pounds.
Iron is heavier than steel, so you may want to consider opting in for professional assembly. On the other hand, a heavier frame absorbs more vibrations, which maximises stability.
