Special Honors

Xidax X-10 Custom As long as money isn't an object, you can use this company's custom PC builder to outfit a desktop system that will rival anything else out there, and be both future-proofed for the next couple of years and capable of swapping components as the hardware you select today eventually becomes obsolete. The customization system is easy and fun to use, and it even allows for laser-engraved personalization before your purchase. xidax.com

Editor's Notes

April 29, 2020:

We wanted to make sure that we included as many options as possible that could work for gamers of more than one single console or platform, so that there’d be more than one thing to choose from if you weren't even sure what the gamer in your life uses to game. Things like the X Rocker Pedestal Extreme III are ideal for this, as anyone would appreciate a cozy chair from which to slay noobs. Then there are options that are even less involved with the act of gaming, but that casual and avid gamers alike should appreciate, like the Stars By Nature Vintage Prints or the Super Mario Brothers Night Light.

We found it necessary to remove a few items from our last ranking, including the Bengoo G9000 headset, which pales in comparison to the HyperX Cloud Flight S for comfort, sound quality, and connectivity. It should be noted, however, that this headset is exclusively made for PC and PS4 gamer, and that Xbox gamers would need a slightly different model.

And if you're the type of gift giver that likes to embarrass all the other givers by spending an inordinate sum of money on the recipient, we included an outstanding custom gaming PC company in our special honors section that should bring any PC gamer to tears of gratitude.

Daniel Imperiale holds a bachelor’s degree in writing, and proudly fled his graduate program in poetry to pursue a quiet life at a remote Alaskan fishery. After returning to the contiguous states, he took up a position as an editor and photographer of the prestigious geek culture magazine “Unwinnable” before turning his attention to the field of health and wellness. In recent years, he has worked extensively in film and music production, making him something of a know-it-all when it comes to camera equipment, musical instruments, recording devices, and other audio-visual hardware. Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
