As we all know, when using a PC or a laptop just for your work or school projects, a regular desktop or even the kitchen table will do. But when you’re an avid gamer and invest in your equipment, a gaming desktop is a must.
When choosing a gaming desktop, it’s important that not only it fits your room, but also that it has the proper dimensions and sturdiness to take all your peripherals and anything else you want to store on it.
So we’ve picked up five gaming desktops that you should look at if you’re in the market for a new acquisition. At least one of them is perfect for a more business-like home office, if you want to keep your gaming guilty pleasure under cover.
What are some good desks for gaming?
- Steel K-leg design
- Multiple storage options
- Carbon fiber laminated surface
- The monitor stand doesn’t feel super secure
The first option is rather a no-name gaming desktop that could be easily listed as a budget choice.
It comes with modern K-shape sturdy legs, a 5-slot game storage shelf, an under-desk basket, and a generous charging station for smartphone or tablets, plus compartments for controllers, headphones, speakers and drink cup.
The extra monitor stand can fit a 32” display.
The extremely affordable price tag is another perk of this gaming desk.

When it comes to gaming desks, Mr. Ironstone is an established brand in the domain and for our list, we chose a basic, compact desk that teenagers can conveniently use both as a study desk and as a gaming set.
Similar to the previous model, this one also comes with Z-shaped legs and a surface made of carbon fiber, yet is considerably smaller. The overall size is 31.5” (W) x 23.6” (D) x 29.9” (H), with a 0.59″ thick board. The desk can stand up to 110 lbs (approx. 50 kgs).
It has a headphone hook and a cup holder, plus two cable management holes positioned in each of the top corners.
Assembling takes only 15-20 minutes, while further maintenance is extremely easy.
- Can take a weight of up to 170 lbs
- Multifunctional and extremely large
- Sturdy materials
- Assembling issues might appear due to poor manufacturing
TOOLF’s gaming desk is the largest featured in this article and it is a truly multifunctional desk that you can use to store not only your gaming gear but also other writing or office tools.
Overall dimensions are 55”x 23.6” x 29.9”(L x W x H), the T-shaped legs are made of metal and have pads that ensure the table stays balanced on uneven ground without wobbling.
Nice additions are the two cable management holes and hidden electric socket box, a desktop handle rack, a full size mouse pad for conveniently moving the mouse, and a headphone hook and cup holder.
- Cup holder, headphone hook, monitor stand
- 40'' wide
- Can support up to 3 monitors

This is a tall and steady gaming table that any gamer would love, especially since it is large enough to fit 3 monitors: two on the sides and one on the dedicated stander.
The table has an ergonomic design that prevents back bending if you’re only using the monitor placed on the stand; besides, the adjustable feet help with the same purpose.
Not to mention that for all it has to offer, it is cheaper that other items presented so far.
- Elegant and modern
- Reversible shelves
- Quality material
- Assembling issues
Our last pick isn’t necessarily a gaming desk, but can easily be turned into one.
It’s a more expensive option, but we’ve picked it for the good quality materials, elegant design and overall sturdy aspect, plus good size for most rooms.
The legs are interchangeable in case you need to move it around, and the shelves can be removed to fit a PC tower.
Hopefully, you found some inspiration with these recommendations. If you think one of these gaming tables is perfect for you, let us know in the comments.
