The role of a quality gaming PC chair cannot be emphasized enough. It’s very important to have a reliable PC gaming chair to help satisfy your gaming needs. Without a reliable gaming chair, the entire gaming experience is compromised.
Our body is programmed to be agile. Sitting being a sedentary and non-productive position, the body doesn’t respond favorably to extended hours of inaction. If you are chained to your computer chair by your profession or passion, hunching over and staring into your super bright HD display never feels good. This has spurred the research and development of “healthier” chairs; you’ll want to keep your back in tip-top shape while you game.
Considering factors like leg fatigue, circulation, posture, and reducing pressure while encouraging the natural movement of your body: A good Computer gaming chair-
Fits your posture and body size
Allows you to sit both ergonomically and comfortably.
It allows for improved blood flow to the lower body
Relieves your joints and muscles especially in the lower back and neck region.
Furthermore, good quality gaming computer chairs like the DXRacer ship with two valuable cushions that offer additional posture support.
The most important role of a gaming computer chair is to keep you healthy in the long run. You sit comfortable and are able to maintain a good posture which in turn leads to an improved well-being and leads to more focus and motivation while playing your games.
Top Priorities in a Gaming PC Chair:
The 2 most important components in top quality gaming chairs has to be
Comfort: Gaming chairs serve a sole purpose that is to provide the utmost comfort for long periods of play.
Ergonomic value: Ergonomics is more than comfort. Musculoskeletal disorders can develop when you perform the same task continuously. If you sit on an ergonomic gaming chair, you can prevent musculoskeletal disorders.
Lumbar Support: You can reduce the strain on your disc as long as the chair can support your lower spine all the time even in a reclining position. Gamer chairs with the adjustable lumbar support that can be found in high-end furniture. They can meet the needs of a variety of video computer gamers.
Which translates to spending more time doing what you love! However, it’s important to remember that even with an ergonomically designed chair it’s still a good idea to periodically get up and move around in between matches or levels.
A good rule of thumb is to buy according to your own personal gaming and work habits.
Gaming chairs and office chairs are NOT the same thing! So when you look for a gaming chair, keep a few things in mind:
Chairs built for Computer gaming have better lumbar support, a headrest, and comfortable armrests
Some even tilt back a full 180 degrees without tipping over and planting you on the floor. The average person spends an average of 6.3 hours per week playing video games, just think of the time dedicated gamers put in.
Console gaming chairs and PC gaming chairs aren’t the same either: Console gaming chairs are generally located on the ground or just barely off the ground, while chairs for computer gaming are tailored specifically for gaming and sit at Computer desk height.
There are two basic types of console gaming chairs: the ROCKER and the PEDESTAL
The rocker-style gaming chair: Sits directly on the floor, is L-shaped, and is designed specifically for comfort, not posture.
Pedestal chairs: Sit a little ways off the ground, and tend to look like the captains seat Star Trek!
Selecting a PC gaming chair
When typing and working at the computer, you need more upright support so that you can maintain neutral spine posture and let the chair support you. But for gaming, you may want to recline a little bit to relax your lower back, while still having good support in that position. So a locking backrest and/or some sort of tension control is important.
With an adjustable sliding seat, tall people can get more support behind their legs, and for shorter gamers it can be set shallower so they can sit all the way back in the chair.
For those willing to stretch even farther out of their comfort zone, a relic from the 70s has returned with a vengeance: the Beanbag. Admittedly, it has no speakers, no RCA inputs, and no headrests or lumbar support, per se. But there are an increasing number of gamers who swear by them.
Gaming chairs for PC are available for varying budgets from entry level to high end.
3 Best PC gaming chairs in the market currently are:
DXRacer is the king of cool-looking pc gaming chairs. We saw some of their models for consoles, but these guys kill the pc gaming market. The one we want to highlight you might have already seen with some twitch players. DXRacer likes to sponsor certain gamers to get their products out there.
These chairs have a ton of padding on them and they feel extremely comfortable. This one in particular has a really tall back, so your spine and head have a lot of support. The armrests have wide pads on them so you can position your elbows however you like, and they obviously adjust up and down depending on how you like it. It comes with a lumbar pillow and a small pillow for the headrest, and pretty much everything on this chair is adjustable so you can find the perfect custom fit.
DXRacer chairs are available in cloth, vinyl as well as race car upholstery style.
The backrest can be adjusted up to 180 degrees giving you the flexibility to set your posture as required.
The Racing Series’ high-density cold cure foam filling makes these chairs comfortable for extended use, especially for durations of 8 hours and longer.

You’re the CEO of your room, so why not look like it? This is one of the highest-end chairs you can get, coming in at just under $1000. It may not look as cool as most other chairs we look at, but that’s because every dollar that has gone into the design of this chair has gone to comfortability.
You might never sit in a chair that’s more ergonomically designed as this one. Herman Miller prides itself in using innovative technology to enhance your experience: “Herman Miller's patented Kinemat® tilt mechanism lets your neck, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles pivot naturally.”
The back and set of this chair is made with a special, breathable material that helps you stay cool no longer how long you sit in it. The seat is designed with high edges on the sides for support, and what Herman Miller calls a “waterfall” edge on front, which follows the natural curvature of your legs for maximum comfortability.
