The Best 26 Gaming Desks of 2021

If you’ve decided to take the plunge and opt for an ultrawide gaming monitor, or you’re just after a bigger mousepad for the sake of your K/D ratio, then perhaps it’s time you invested in a fully-featured gaming desk. If you’re playing for long hours, you’ll want to keep a close eye on desk ergonomics, and crucially your desk height. There are plenty of adjustable options on the market today, and there’s no need to compromise on quality, even if it’s a budget gaming desk you’re after.

Best Choice
Budget Choice
Premium Choice

From megalithic multi-monitor desks to miniature student-room solutions, you’ll find every shape and size of gaming desk in this handy guide. Consider what your needs are carefully, and remember, it’s better to plan and pick a desk that will suit your future needs as well as your current setup, rather than end up with something that will only last you a short while. 

Of-course there are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a gaming desk. Not the least of which is what kind of monitor stand you’ll choose to couple with your desk.

Room Size

Consider the size of the room you will be adding your gaming desk to. You don’t want to have something that overwhelms the room, but at the same time, you also don’t want a gaming desk so tiny that it doesn’t meet your needs. Map out exactly how much space you have, and then the specs you see for each desk will make a lot more sense to you.

Surface Area

Consider how many things you’ll want on your desktop. Calculate your monitor or multiple monitors’ width and make sure that your monitor edges won’t be hanging over the edge of your chosen gaming desk. Consider how much additional space you need for your gaming peripherals like your mouse, keyboard, headphones, microphone, console, and other items.

Shape

In situations where your room has awkward angles or a small amount of space, you may want to consider a gaming desk that isn’t just a regular rectangle. Sometimes you’ll want to consider the following shapes:

  • L-shaped – look professional and provide lots of surface area, and are space-efficient.
  • U-Shaped – These desks are great for even more desk space and perfect for multiple battle station setups or to surround yourself with many monitors. The only downside is that they take up a lot of room. 
  • Corner – Ideal for tiny rooms and limited space. 
  • Rectangular – The classic shape you’ll most commonly find for gaming desks. 

Functionality

Some gaming desks are of the no-frills variety, while others come with various bells and whistles. Think about the following potential features of your gaming desk. 

  • Built-in cable management
  • Built-in LED mood lighting
  • Sit-stand functionality
  • Built-in monitor arms
  • Built-in monitor platforms
  • Curved table edges for comfort
  • Additional built-in storage including drawers

With all that in mind, read on to discover some of the best gaming desks in the world.

With just enough room for a mouse and keyboard on this desk’s surface, don’t expect to be no-scoping at low mouse DPI.

If you want to turn this into a corner gaming desk, you can do so or double up to form a nook.

With a small 40.25″ x 23.5″ surface, your dual monitors are going to struggle for space here, and frankly, this desk could do with being somewhat larger for all the hooks and trays attached to it.

Sadly, this desk is not suitable for multi-monitor setups unless you plan to move your equipment forwards by several inches, as there’s only room for one monitor stand due to the back edge design.
