Owens was mainly a console gamer. However, it has been a year since he stepped foot in the PC gaming forte. During this period, he started working on this beautiful shiny setup.

Owens, who goes by the name Fluxgamess on Twitch and Instagram has been a gamer from his childhood ever since his dear parents bought him a Sega Megadrive. From then onwards, he owned the PS1, PS2, Xbox 360, and PS4. He began using a PC and decorating his room last year with the help of YouTube video guides which, he emphasized, took him an overwhelming amount of patience. At first, he only had a generic build, a large TV and console. With a desire to build a gaming room and within a span of 10 months, he turned this idea (icy cold, all white and shiny like a diamond) into a reality. And thank goodness he was able to! Otherwise, our eyes wouldn’t have been blessed with what he saw. Recently, he even upgraded his graphics card to a Gigabyte RTX 3070. 

As of writing, Owens is working as a digital creator from work. He is also now a custom PC and setup enthusiast which shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. I mean the man has been hard at work, making beautiful PCs one after another and also handing over giveaways. Just check out his Instagram (it’s all in there) and follow him on Twitch.

4) Gaming In Style 

Build By: Alanpsk

Do not be distracted by the eye-catching action figurines in the cabinet. This is easily not only one of the best gaming setups of 2023 we have witnessed but one of the most elegant spotless gaming setups ever. Alan Pang is a veteran fps and Diablo player and he mostly plays those games. The idea of making this immaculate, clean setup came across his mind when moved to his new home in 2019. Having his dream battle station was something he desperately struggled to obtain. You could say it was OCD! He absolutely despises switching between 2 displays. This is why screen real-estate is very essential for him. Moreover, it is the primary reason why we observe an overhead monitor over his ultrawide monitor. It is important for his streaming while he games or watches a film.

Alanpsk stated that the entire build would have incurred a cost of over $5000.

Alanpsk has special advice for you thirsty gamers who are here to view the most expensive, outlandish, breathtaking, and best gaming setups. He stated planning and then executing little by little is the key. Lay out your specifics. You gotta have patience. An abundance of patience!!! It will happen neither in a day nor in a week. Overtime, you will run into problems. This is where your patience pays off.

5) Gear Box Legend

Build By: geartronix

Our next best gaming setup of 2023 comes from a Reddit user by the name u/Gear_Box_Legend. For starters, he began building this from scratch about three years ago. The result is as you can see.

Let’s admit it! Just calling it attractive would be a crime. Because this is actually what three years of perseverance look like. It was his dream to build a gaming room as a Reddit user inspired him 10 years back. The reason why he could not let his dream remain as a dream. With his sheer love and interest in technology and gaming, he knew he had to build a great setup someday. For about 10 years he kept planning what he would do after moving into a new apartment alongside his other hobbies such as modeling, travel, and aquariums.




  • Logitech G910 5.1 Surround Sound TV Speakers
  • Xbox One X / Xbox 360
  • Nanoleaf Aurora Panels (x48)
  • Phillip Hue Bloom + Light Bulbs (Full Color RGB)
  • Exia PG (Perfect Grade) Gundam
  • Lego Apollo Saturn V
  • 40 Gallon Low-Tech, Full Planted Fish Tank
  • Surface Pro Laptop
  • Echo Show 5 Clock (Under Monitor Clock)
  • Custom Build Desk



Aarick Zaman, aka geartronix/ Gear_Box_Legend, wanted his setup to reflect a busy scene in his space. He further stated that most of the setups he saw were “minimalistic” and clean. However, he always found comfort inside a room with many things in it where somebody could get lost. His own private space where he could get lost to be frank. This is the reason why it took many years to acquire and put together items for the setup. Initially, he experimented with many accent lights, but his favorite came from the nano leaf panels. Calm ambient lighting puts his mind at ease. In addition, he could use it to light up his dim apartment although he eventually used another lighting combination to light up his bookshelf. Aarick said the most difficult challenge for him was cable management. Not only was there ample stuff to hide the wires, but since he yearned for a busy look, so many of the peripherals like the surround sound required splicing and soldering extensions to get stuff properly routed while hidden around the room.

His favorite games are Factorio, City Skylines, Assassin’s Creed, Anno, and Civilization. Since he was working and compiling large amounts of programming besides gaming, he never wanted to face any hardware limitation issues. This is why he wanted to keep the door open for anything and everything he wished to learn such as Solidworks and Adobe Premier Suite which are very taxing loads on PC. Finally, Aarick also has a bit of advice for you eager folks. Take time and research your setup requirements. Not only for the PC components for games you want to play but also for your setup layout foundation.

6) Maccagames’ Playground 2.0

That is, you should match the performance of your build with the overall looks and design of your setup. According to him, it aids in sensing the ownership.

What components are required for a gaming setup?

The following components, but not limited to, are required to get your building your dream rig which is your own personalized best gaming setup.

Gaming Chair

Gaming Chair

This may not seem very important at first but, in reality, it actually is. Gaming is a sanctuary that puts you away from the real world. Why do we play games? For relaxation and pure enjoyment even if a game comes off as difficult or stressful. This is where a comfortable gaming chair with appropriate back support will help with maintaining posture and protecting your back pains. It is one of the most highly recommended components. 

PC Desk

Gaming PC Desktop

Next is the PC desk. Where will you even play games without a desk? It is the place where your very computer and everything else apart from the chair is likely to be placed upon. Go for a custom desk if you want to build a big setup.


AOC 24G2 24 inch Frameless Gaming IPS Monitor
AOC 24G2 24 inch Frameless Gaming IPS Monitor

Needless to mention, a monitor is what you will be viewing when you game or stream. It is even needed for watching movies, content creation, and work. Therefore, if you wish to build the best pc gaming setup, you need to buy a monitor that has fast refresh rates with improved color accuracy and resolution. Excellent visual and smooth transition between crisp images is what you want to be working with. Here you have 3 options namely from 3 different panels. You can go with TN, VA, or IPS. IPS monitors are the most sought monitors these days as they have true color accuracy and nowadays have faster response times as that of TN panels. What’s more, is that it necessarily does not have to be very expensive either. For the budget gamers starting to build their setup from scratch, we recommend the AOC 24G2 24 inches Frameless Gaming IPS Monitor. Note that curved monitors do make the gaming setup more unique.

Gaming Keyboard

If you are looking to build the best gaming setup, know that mechanical keyboards are often the most sought-after when considering a gaming setup. Also, wireless keyboards have spiked in popularity these days. This is mainly because the absence of cables makes it look less cluttered and more clean. However, it goes without saying that mechanical gaming keyboards have better response times and no input delay. A good wireless keyboard will also have better responses followed by negligible input lag. For starters, we are recommending one of the most popular keyboards in the world, Redragon K552 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. Not only is it extremely good but it is also very affordable.

Gaming Mouse

Obviously, you are going to need a mouse for your setup. Now admittedly, it does not necessarily have to be a gaming mouse as ultimately, the service provided is the exact same. Or is it? Heed that for creating the best gaming setup with the best gaming setup accessories,  a gaming mouse is essential. A gaming mouse is not only the most responsive but will often allow for player customization. They are most likely to be equipped with extra buttons for your gaming convenience and optimized gameplay. We recommend the Redragon M801 Gaming Mouse LED RGB.

Gaming Controller

Xbox Core Wireless Controller Pulse Red

A controller is a nice alternative if you are not too keen on using a mouse and keyboard for your gaming. Perhaps you wish to relax on your comfortable couch, spread your legs and enjoy single-player games. Getting a Series X controller would be our recommendation. Wireless controllers are easy enough to configure and set up on a gaming PC. If you are using a console such as Xbox Series X or PS5, you already own the Series X Core or DualSense controller. Just hook it up to your PC and you are good to go. 


Razer Kraken Ultimate RGB USB Gaming Headset

Now a gaming headset is not a must. Ultimately it boils down to personal taste whether you even want it or not. If you want it, do you go for a wired or wireless headset? The most important factors to consider here are sound quality, noise cancellation, and a great microphone. Any headset capable of providing 5.1 surround HD DTS and 3D sound should be a terrific gaming experience. The Razer Kraken Ultimate RGB USB Gaming Headset is a great choice.

Lighting and RBG

Not actually a requirement for building your PC but definitely is one of the most essential aspects of the gaming setup room design. Applying and getting the correct lighting done will pay huge dividends to your gaming setup that can complete the whole package. For streamers, it is an absolute necessity when people are viewing their content. But at the end of the day, it is what oozes and boosts the aesthetics of your gaming setup. So just work on it, little by little at a time.
