The hardware is an important element that we should not neglect, especially if we are designing our gaming computer system; the keyboard, the monitor and the mouse are three of the most important and it is convenient to make a good selection to use them in any task.
It is convenient to carry out this selection prior to the purchase with the purpose of choosing the best components both in characteristics and in design A good investment in high-quality peripherals ensures that they can be used not only for gaming, but also for the day-to-day activities that you need to perform on your PC.
If we make a quick and small comparison between hardware designed for gaming and different basic peripherals, the balance tilts in favor of the former because these are versatile peripherals that are used for gaming, but are also useful for daily use.
For those who are willing to invest a little more, the purchase of accessories designed for gaming are key to playing, but also for other tasks. In addition, it is a very successful idea because, contrary to what one may think, they do not have to be too expensive or have garish designs.
Gaming monitor vs basic monitor
We start with the monitor It is an essential peripheral to carry out any task on the PC, but it is also key to enjoying good games, therefore, it is recommended that it have state-of-the-art technologies so that the gaming experience is optimal.
Among the features to pay attention to, apart from the panel resolution (FullHD, 2K, 4K, etc.), is the frame rate per second, which must be high to provide the most immersive experience possible.
AMD FreeSync technology helps greatly to achieve this as well, making games smoother and graphical glitches that could appear are eliminated, that is, that there are no "cuts" in the game produced when the monitor is not capable of displaying the same frames as the graphics card.
OMEN 27i and OMEN X 27, the perfect monitors for gaming
Among the wide variety of gaming monitors, a great option are those included in the OMEN catalog, screens specifically designed for gamers, which are equipped with the latest technologies and allow them to take advantage of the full potential of games, thus offering a great experience.
On the one hand, we have the OMEN 27i, an elegant monitor made of metal and with a 27-inch panel. This is a high-quality peripheral ideal for gaming, but highly versatile for use in various tasks.

The OMEN 27i's refresh rate is 165 Hz and offers 1 ms of response. It has 1 HDMI port, 1 DisplayPort port and 2 USB 3.0 ports. Several details of its design should be highlighted, such as its LED rear light and the possibility of leveling the inclination and height
On the other hand, we have the OMEN X 27, a monitor similar to the previous one, but with the particularity of offering up to 240 Hz refresh rate, 2K resolution (2,560 x 1,440 pixels), HDR, AMD FreeSync, back light, multiple ports (HDMI, USB 3.0, and DisplayPort), etc.
Keyboard, an essential peripheral for gamers
The keyboard is another essential piece of hardware for gamers, choosing the right model will help us get the most out of it in games and also in day-to-day tasks.
You have to keep in mind that gaming keyboards are mechanical, while the ones that most users commonly use are the so-called “membrane keyboards”. Here is the first big difference, although it is not the only one, for example, aesthetics is another.
In any case, both a gaming keyboard and a monitor designed for this purpose will always be more versatile in any situation because they will allow you to fully enjoy the games and use them for other purposes, for example, editing videos, photographs, office tasks, etc.
OMEN Encoder, with anti-ghosting system
A good mechanical keyboard is an essential accessory for a gamer and OMEN has the OMEN Encoder, designed for gamers thanks to its adjustable supports and the 100% anti-ghosting system.

The OMEN Encoder is made of cable, whose outer coating uses a braid that offers great resistance so that this element has greater durability.
Gaming mouse, the key is in the details
Choosing a good gaming mouse is key to a great gaming experience, and at the same time it will provide you with different advantages in other types of tasks, being an equally more versatile peripheral in this case, as occurs with keyboards or monitors.
That is, you will take advantage of its advanced features designed for gaming for more basic tasks. There are mice with very advanced technologies, but you don't have to go to the top of the market to enjoy a good mouse.
