BenQ’s 24-inch gaming monitor has been very popular with CS GO fans for BenQ’s dimming Dynamic Accuracy (DyAc) technology, even as there have been advances in IPS displays, 4K gaming monitors, and the advent of newer panels with mini LEDs and quantum dot OLEDs.

The XL2546S is a 27-inch 240Hz . monitorand while it lacks the color accuracy of newer 240Hz or 360Hz monitors, CS GO Supporters still trust the BenQ brand for its clarity of motion and intense gunfights. However, most users should also considere 240Hz BenQ ZOWIE XL2546 cheaper–There is a slight difference between the older DyAc and the newer DyAc+ technology.

Razer’s THX-enabled headphones are among the more affordable on the market, especially if you’re content to continue living with the hassle of a 3.5mm cord. Selling at a price around $79.99 at time of writing, the headset comes with a separate USB sound card that adds spatial sound in supported games.

But even without spatial sound – which you might be better off not using due to compression it adds to the microphone–The BlackShark V2 is an extremely good gaming headset for the price. Microphone quality is on par with more expensive brands and headphones, especially if you add a small amount of amplifier through your motherboard. Razer’s Synapse software also includes an equalizer for the audio port, noise, and sensitivity for the microphone, as well as customizations and presets for THX spatial audio.

BlackShark V2 is the more expensive cousin by BlackShark V2 X, has a lot of the same features without THX functionality or customization. It’s also half the price, so if you don’t mind losing your surround sound potential, V2 X is worth watching.

That said, readers should note one thing: while we have the BlackShark V2 listed here, ropz has been seen using various headsets at tournaments. Ropz used Sennheiser gaming headset at LAN before, and he also used entry-level Razer Kraken headset on line before.

Whether you want to buy the GeForce RTX 3080 at its current price is another question. GPU’s MSRP is astronomical thanks to the chip shortage, but that doesn’t stop the RTX 3080 from being a great choice for 4K gaming.

G.Skill .’s TridentZ Neo brand popular in many systems due to their affordability and good performance. There is also a 32GB plan available with the same amount of RAM, if you’re building a PC that needs extra support for content creation. Mouse, headset, keyboard, PC, etc
