The days of sitting cross-legged on your floor playing Mario Kart are long gone. Modern day gaming takes more hand-eye coordination and endurance than ever before, and as such, ergonomic accessories like gaming chairs and desks are important investments that hardcore gamers need to help ensure they can play comfortably and safely for hours on end.
The right chair, for instance, should offer lumbar support, as well as have plenty of padding to help cradle your head and neck. In the case of desks, it should be wide enough to support multiple screens, and let you get close to your monitor without sacrificing room for your accessories. And because gaming equipment like controllers, consoles, and games aren’t cheap by any means, scoring a chair and desk setup on sale is key.
Good thing all 10 of the options below are currently discounted, some upwards of 40% off their retail price.

Feel fully immersed in all of your driving games with this Playseat, which mirrors the position and feeling of driving a real race car — steering wheel, pedals, and all.

This sleek upholstered chair looks like it was built for the boardroom (and it definitely can complement any home office setup). That being said, it also works wonders when you’re gaming thanks to its padded foaming, ergonomic design, and sturdy aluminum base — all of which can keep you comfortable and supported at the same time. As an added bonus, shoppers can score the AKRacing Executive Chair for 35% off — just $389.
To ensure your gaming chair is customized to your body’s needs at any given moment, opt for an adjustable design like the Heigh Adjustable Gaming Chair (on sale for $219.99). You can contour the chair to fit your measurements, customizing the height and tilt of the seat and armrests, as well as removing (or keeping) its head and lumbar support pillow.
The AKRacing Master Series PRO Gaming Chair can stand the test of time. Its wide-frame design offers a deep seat for relaxed seating and mobility, as well as additional leg support. And it comes with a five-year warranty on the chair, as well as a 10-year warranty on the frame to help ensure it stays up to snuff for years to come.
Don’t let the simple exterior fool you, the Contoured Gamer Chair is made with complete ergonomic precision in mind. Lumbar support, height adjustment, recline, and arm support all come with the gaming chair. Plus, its color-block vegan leather covering looks pretty cool, too. Right now, the chair is on sale for nearly $100 off its original price tag.

The perfect match to the Contoured Gamer Chair is this discounted $240 red and black gamer desk from Offex.

You use a lot of gaming equipment on a day-to-day basis. And that means there’s a lot of cords scattered around.

It comes with three grounded outlet receptors, two USB charging ports, and a cord management hole to keep all of your wired equipment safe from damages.
When it comes to gaming desks, you’re probably looking for the most affordable option out there. Meet the Quest 45-inch Wide PC Gamer Desk, which is now on sale for $219.99 and happens to be the most budget-friendly option on this list. It offers the cord-management features and spacious surface area we love about the other models, but for a fraction of the total price.
You have multiple monitors, consoles, and gaming equipment that need to be stored on your desk. And as such, the extra desktop real estate is on the top of your mind.
