Finding a good gaming mouse can sometimes feel like you're stuck in the story of Goldilocks. You don't want one that's too heavy, nor do you want one that's too light. Instead, you want one that feels just right under your palm. Or you could just buy a weighted one such as Corsair's new M65 RGB Elite and make your own mind up as you…

If there's one thing you shouldn't skimp on when it comes to upgrading your PC, it's your gaming monitor. After all, there's no point spending buckets of money on the [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] you can afford and then not having a good enough screen to show it off.

Best PC gaming deals of the week – 17th May 2019

Man alive, it's a good time for some epic deals, eh? After last week's mega haul, I didn't think anything could possibly top it this week, but oh how your deals herald has been proved wrong. For not only are Epic slashing dozens of prices on new and unreleased games until June 13, but Green Man Gaming are also celebrating their birthday this month with…

Nvidia GTX ray tracing revisited: How much faster are the GTX 1660 and 1660 Ti?

Last month, I put Nvidia's GTX ray tracing driver to the test, seeing what kind of speeds were possible on the GTX 1060 and GTX 1070 in Metro Exodus and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. The results, it's fair to say, were pretty mixed. Metro was completely unplayable on both cards, but Tomb Raider did, in fact, show promising signs of life as long as…

HP’s Omen X 2S is the world’s first gaming laptop to have two screens for some reason

In a classic case of 'doing it because we can'-itis, HP have unveiled the world's first dual-screen gaming laptop. Dubbed the Omen X 2S, this gaming laptop not only has a regular 15.6in screen, but a smaller, almost touch pad-sized screen beneath it sitting above the keyboard. According to HP, you see, 82% of people use their phones for messaging while playing games these days,…

Best gaming headset 2019: Our top wired and wireless headsets for PC

We tend to forget about our PC's audio setup when we come to upgrade or buy a new system, but when a lot of today's [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s either don't come with speakers or only have very tiny, tinny things for the odd Windows notification, adding one of today's best gaming headsets to your PC is absolutely essential. Not only do they offer…

Rage 2 graphics performance: How to get the best settings on PC

Welcome back to the wasteland, you raving bunch of lunatics, because today's the day that Rage 2 finally blasts its way onto PC. Filled to the brim with tongue-waggling goons and mohawked, tattooed hoodlums with very itchy trigger fingers, the successor to id Software's 2011 post-apocalyptic shooter is now bigger and boomier than ever, thanks in no small part to their collaboration with Just Cause…

We need to talk about Rage 2’s keyboard controls

Rage 2 is very almost here on PC, but for a game half-developed by Doom maestros id Software, there is something really quite rotten about the state of Rage 2's default keyboard controls. For as well as having an arsenal of mildly ridiculous guns at your disposal, you also have various special abilities to help you in the heat of battle, such as the sonic…

Roccat Renga Boost review: A great open-backed headset

If you asked me to guess the weight of Roccat's new Renga Boost gaming headset, I would swear blind that it's never going to beat the 210g Roccat Noz gaming headset, because, well, just look at the thing. Its 50mm audio drivers are way bigger and chunkier than the Noz's skinny little ear muffs, and even the fold-down microphone has a thicker, more substantial boom…

Asus TUF Gaming K5 review: All hail the mech-brane

You've heard of membrane keyboards. You've heard of mechanical keyboards. You've probably even heard some keyboards described as 'membranical', which (aside from being a crime against the English language) are the kind of hybrid gaming keyboards you might consider buying if you're unsure whether to go full CLACK with a proper mechanical one. The Asus TUF Gaming K5 falls into this latter category, although Asus…

Corsair Harpoon RGB Wireless review: An incredible wireless gaming mouse for just £50 / $50

When Corsair announced their new Harpoon RGB Wireless gaming mouse would cost just £49 / $50 back in January earlier this year, I thought there must be some kind of catch. A wireless gaming mouse for a mere $50? You must be having a laugh. Now, I know I haven't reviewed that many wireless gaming mice so far, but the two I have looked at,…

Nvidia GTX 1650 vs 1050 Ti: How much faster is Nvidia’s new graphics card?

At long last, we have a successor to the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. But just how much faster is Nvidia's new GTX 1650, and is it worth the upgrade for current GTX 1050 Ti owners? To help answer that question, I've gone and made some more graphs, pitting each graphics card against each other to see how they fare at 1920x1080 across a variety…

Nvidia GTX 1650 vs RX 570: Clash of the 1080p graphics cards

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 is the latest graphics card in Nvidia's budget-oriented Turing line-up. Aimed at 1080p gamers looking to get 60fps on either Medium to High settings, it's a tempting buy for just £139 / $149. But when the 8GB version of AMD's Radeon RX 570 can be found for practically the same amount of money these days, the battle for which graphics…
