Gaming chairs, like all specialized gaming furniture, can be quite an elaborate purchase. Some brands and styles of gaming chairs can cost as much as $900 for a premium offering. Although they tend to be expensive, they are also a very important purchase if you intend to spend several hours gaming at a time. Gaming chairs, whilst aesthetically extremely “cool”, are designed to provide added support to the neck and lower back. A 2017 study in the United States showed that 49% of respondents, across all demographics and not just gamers, reported suffering from back pain. For the avid gamer, who will sit for several hours immersed in another world, a lumbar supporting, comfortable chair is important.
If you are on a tight budget, you may not think you can afford the luxury of a gaming chair. Well, that’s just not true! The great news is that there is a wide range of cheap gaming chairs available.

There are two important factors to consider when beginning to look for the perfect gaming chair, your budget and your personal taste. Firstly, it is always a good idea to decide on your budget as, even within the cheap range, the price of gaming chairs will still vary.

At approximately $300, they may be significantly cheaper than their high-end alternatives, yet the price may not be for everyone shopping within the “cheap” range.
