If you haven’t noticed, PC gamers are on at all time high, with Steam having so many different categories to choose and having such huge sales, we can see why so many people are turning to PC.

Many who are looking to buy or build also look for the accessories to go with their new PC. Now just think about it, you just spent $800 on a PC, now you need a headset, a good gaming mouse, and keyboard, but you just can’t afford to pay over $100 for each accessory.
