5 Best PC Gaming Chair – Ultimate Guide

One important note about PC gaming chairs: if you sit at a desk for an extended period of time, style takes a backseat to back support. Some of the these higher-end chair might not look as nice as the console chairs, but you don’t need storage space or built in speakers as much if you have a good PC setup. The money you drop on a PC gaming chair needs to be on good ergonomics.

DXRacer Drifting Series DOH/DF73/NW

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.

What we liked:
Awesome DXRacer style
Excellent back and head support
Everything adjustable

What we didn’t like:

Back support pillow may be difficult to attach

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.

Incredible comfort
Breathable material is really nice

If you’re not quite ready to blow $1000 on a chair, this might be a nice alternative. Ergohuman has made a really nice chair for only just over $600. It’s made of a similar breathable material as Herman Miller’s chair, and it has a ton of adjustable options like the DXRacer.

Another cool feature that you don’t see as much with console chairs is that this model comes in a variety of colors: “Black, blue, green, grey, orange and red.” You might also be able to find this chair in a local store so you don’t have to order it online without trying it out first.

Might not easily accommodate people who are bigger than average

Obviously this won’t have as many features as the more expensive chairs, but it has multiple adjustment options, it’s made of a good material, and it has great back support. Those are the most important things in a desk chair anyway, and this one is only about $120 on Amazon.
