Top 5 – Best Gaming Desks (2022)

A quality gaming desks should provide plenty of desk space, stability, and storage compartments to keep your space organized. With so many options to choose from, finding the best gaming desks that fits your space and budget can be easier said than done. 

The best gaming desks are those models which encompass all the space you need for your setup combined with a whole host of premium features that regular desks just don’t offer. It’s vital for any desk to support the weight of everything you need to game in comfort, quality of life touches, such as cup holders, headphone hooks, built-in cable management, and even RGB lighting can go the distance, too, in personalizing your space.

The best gaming desks for 2022

Secretlab MAGNUS

Secretlab is regarded as one of the top brands for gaming chairs. We’ve reviewed both their Secretlab Titan and Omega series chairs and have been impressed with their build quality and comfort. And, now, they’ve created their first series of gaming desks.

The Secretlab MAGNUS has a straight-forward design, with sleek aesthetics, and an ingenious built-in cable management system. It measures in at 59-inches wide and 28-inches deep. It’s not the biggest desk on this list, but it comes with a higher-end build quality and some extra unique features.

For instance, Secretlab has desgined the desk with a small gap that runs along the rear side of the desktop. The gap (which has a flip-up panel for easier access) opens to a hidden cable tray underneath the desktop. This will make running your cables from your monitors and desktop incredibly easy and will ensure there isn’t a mess of cables hanging down the the wall in front of your legs and feet.

ApexDesk Elite

If you’re looking for a desk that offers both an extra wide (and deep) surface space, as well as offers height adjustment, then the ApexDesk Elite is probably the option for you. Just note, though, that the Elite is not a cheap adjustable height desk as it comes in at just under $700.

However, it sports a very large 71″-wide and 33″-deep surface space which will give you plenty of room to hold multiple monitors without sacrificing a ton of desk space. And, for the height, the desk can adjust from anywhere between 29″ to 48″ so that you can find the right level for your height.

Ultimately, in terms of ergonomic adjustable height desks, the ApexDesk Elite is one of the better options simply for its overly large surface space. 

Homall Gaming Desk

Priced at $89.99, and even usually on sale for cheaper than this, the Homall gaming desk is an excellent choice for anyone wanting a whole suite of features and decent construction all under $100. This model features not only a non-slip carbon fiber tabletop, which is rarer on budget desks but also a headphone hook and cupholder as small quality of life inclusions.

Measuring 44-inches across, the Homall gaming desk is far from the largest on the market. However, due to its ergonomic Z-shaped design, there should be little issue with maximizing space for the likes of your gaming mouse, keyboard, and multiple monitors. What’s perhaps most appealing about the Homall is that it is available in multiple colorways which is scarcely seen from many gaming desks. As well as the standard black, you’ve also got the option for grey(opens in new tab), white(opens in new tab), and pastel pink(opens in new tab), too, all within the same price range.

AndaSeat Mask 2

The AndaSeat Mask 2 features both sturdy construction and a large surface area to accommodate multiple monitors and all the peripherals that you need. It’s one of the best gaming desks on that front, not to mention the slick RGB lighting that adorns the legs of the unit itself for that added touch of flair.

The one main drawback is the included plastic accessories, such as a cable management tray which sets underneath. In our testing, we found that this box did not do much to mitigate wires free-falling underneath. However, the two cable holes in both the left and right corners did an effective job of keeping leads out of the way on their own.

Flexispot EN1B

The Flexispot EN1B(opens in new tab) may not have the catchiest name here, but it makes for an impressively sturdy, motorized adjustable desk for anyone looking to upgrade their home/gaming/office setup. And it will do it all at a reasonable price. The Flexispot supports heights from 71cm (27.8in) up to 121cm (47.6in), which should have you covered for all comfortable sitting and standing setups. The control panel can hold three different height profiles in its memory banks and moves smoothly between them. Or you can set your height manually, with the current level shown on the three-digit display.

Of course, the main thing you want from any desk is stability. If everything is bouncing along as you type, it doesn’t matter if you’re sitting or standing; you’re going to want to break it up. The good news is that the Flexipost is rock solid—even though I have an old screen with a flimsy stand, it doesn’t move even with my most aggressive emails. When you raise and lower the desk, the smooth action instills confidence too, and it’s just as sturdy at its highest position.

Mojo Standing Desk Gamer Pro

What’s not to love about the Mojo Standing Desk Gamer Pro? This bundle that includes Mojo’s signature standing desk and vital accessories (a cable management system, monitor arm, and a CPU tower hanger) is so brilliant that it’s hard to find fault in it, and it would probably have been the top contender here had it not been for its $1,000 price.

At the center of it all is the Mojo Standing Desk, naturally, which a triple threat: it’s luxurious, rugged, and environmentally-friendly, with thoughtful details like a water- and scratch-proof surface with a matte lux finish that guarantees smooth mouse gliding and precision tracking, a control panel that’s a pleasure to use, and an extremely robust frame that has zero wobble and can carry a load of up to 300 pounds.

This deskop alone is impressive, but that $1,000 price tag also gets you a bunch accessories. Firstly, the MagicSnap cable management system, which includes a spacious cable tray, a cable chain, and a power bar) truly stands out. Due to its magnetic setup, this isn’t just easy to install — just snap the accessories onto the metal parts of the frame — but it does an impeccable job of keeping things neat and cables tucked away. This Mojo desk is one heck of a dream gaming solution.

How to choose the best gaming desks for you

Of course, choosing the best gaming desk for you is an individual decision based on what you’re hoping to achieve. But there are some things you want to keep in mind:

Space: For one, you want to consider how big of a space you have for a desk, and whether the desk you’re considering buying is the right size for the space. Luckily, these days we do a lot of shopping online, where it’s easy to look up the dimensions of a desk and compare them against the space you’re hoping to fill. If you end up shopping for a new desk in person, be sure to bring that tape measure!

Storage: One of the issues with gaming desks is that they don’t often come with storage, so you’ll want to be aware of that limitation and be sure you have other places in your home to store files and other deskbound ephemera before you opt for a gaming desk.

Accessories: Aside from that, think about some of the extras you’d find value in. Do you want things like a hook for your headphones or a cupholder for your drink? They’re nice to have, but they also run up your gaming desk’s cost. The same goes for fancy LED lights on your desk.

Luckily, most gaming desks aren’t overwhelmingly expensive. Sure, they’ll set you back a couple of hundred dollars, but that’s far cheaper than what you could spend on other desks.
