23 Best PC Gaming Chairs: The Ultimate List

If you are looking for the best gaming chair for you, I have created a list of the 23 best gaming chairs for PC you can find on the market.

As this is a big list, I decided to separate each chair into a price category. This way you can just go directly to the category that will fit your budget. I think this is the best way for you to quickly find the chair that you want.

Also, for each chair, I am going to give you a quick review where I am going to explain why I put this chair in the top and which type of gamer chair is the best.

Best gaming chairs under $100

In this category, you are not going to find the best product on the market. That being said, these cheap gaming chairs can be very handy for occasional use, or for your kids if you have any.

Furmax Office Chair

Furmax Office Chair Desk Leather Gaming Chair, High Back Ergonomic Adjustable Racing Chair,Task Swivel Executive Computer Chair Headrest and Lumbar Support (Black)

Features :

  • weight capacity: 280 lbs
  • Armrest: fixed
  • Backrest: fixed – rocking chair only
  • Cover material: PU leather and fabric
  • Foam: low-quality sponge foam
  • No head cushion or lumbar support
  • Chair size: small to average.

One of the most popular gaming chairs on Amazon is this low-cost chair from Furmax(click to check the current price on Amazon). Sure, this chair doesn’t have a ton of features. But if you use it occasionally to play Fortnite, this product is fine. It has a decent weight capacity, and the design is not bad at all. Keep in mind that this is not a very big chair, so if you are a big guy, I don’t think this is the right product for you.

On the other hand, if you are average, it should be good enough.

BestOffice Racing Office Chair, High-Back

Racing Office Chair, High-Back PU Leather Gaming Chair Reclining Computer Desk Chair Ergonomic Executive Swivel Rolling Chair with Adjustable Arms Lumbar Support For Women, Men

Features :

  • weight capacity: 250 lbs
  • Armrest: fixed
  • Backrest: fixed – rocking chair only
  • Cover material: PU leather and fabric
  • Foam: low-quality sponge foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: small to average.

To be honest, I am quite surprised by the BestOffice Racing Office Chair (click to check the current price on Amazon).For less than $100, you have something that looks like a true gaming chair. The image is a little bit deceiving because you think that the backrest angle is adjustable.

Unfortunately, it is not. Nonetheless, for slightly more than the Furmax chair you have something that has a true gaming chair design. If you only care about the look, this is a very good deal.

The main downside is the weight capacity, which is a little bit low in my opinion.

Best gaming chairs between $100 and $200

In this category, there is a big jump in quality and features that you can have. You can finally find adjustable armrests and adjustable backrests which are key components in a gaming chair. In terms of quality, you are not going to have the best available. Most of these chairs won’t last for a very long time if you use them 8h per day.
You won’t find any popular brand such as DXRacer, AKRacing, etc.

SONGMICS Gaming Chair

SONGMICS Gaming Chair Swivel Office Chair with High Back, Molding Foam Padded Cushion, Adjustable Headrest and Lumbar Support/ for Home or Office Desk Black and White URCG27BW

Features :

  • weight capacity: 265 lbs
  • Armrest: 1D
  • Backrest: 90°-135° and rocking chair
  • Cover material: PU leather
  • Foam: Cold-cured foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: Average to Large (5’6’’ – 6’2’’)

The Songmics Chair (check the price on Amazon) might not be the most popular, but it packs a serious set of features with it. It can support fairly tall individuals, up to 6’2’’ and it has a decent weight capacity.

The armrests are height adjustable which is nice, and the foam is cold cured. At this price point, this is not guaranteed at all, and most of the time, manufacturers use a cheaper type of foam which is less comfortable and less durable.

Overall, this Songmics chair is a very decent product for the price.

Homall Gaming Chair

Homall Gaming Chair Racing Style High Back PU Leather Chair Executive and Ergonomic Style Swivel Chair with Headrest and Lumbar Support (White)

Features :

  • weight capacity: 300 lbs
  • Armrest: Fixed*
  • Backrest: 90°-180° and rocking chair
  • Cover material: PU leather
  • Foam: Low-quality sponge foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: Average to Large

Probably the best-selling gaming chair on Amazon, the Homall gaming chairs are a quite interesting product (check the price on Amazon). At first glance, it looks like a great deal. But the more you look at it the more you see the defects.

The most frustrating thing about this product is the armrests, they are not adjustable. On the other hand, this chair has all the other important features: adjustable backrest angle, rocking chair, head cushion, and lumbar support.

Also, the weight capacity is quite high: 300 lbs. is enough to support bulky gamer.

In the end, I think this is a product that is worth taking a look at, but it could have been perfect if it has 1D armrests.

GTRacing Gaming Chair

GTRACING Gaming Chair Racing Video Game Chair Ergonomic Backrest and Seat Height Adjustment with Pillows Recliner Swivel Rocker Headrest and Lumbar Tilt E-Sports Chair (Black/Red)

Features :

  • weight capacity: 300 lbs
  • Armrest: 1D
  • Backrest: 90°-170° and rocking chair
  • Cover material: PU leather
  • Foam: Low-quality sponge foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: Average to Large

Another very popular gaming chair. I think this one is a superior version of the Homall gaming chair. It pretty much has the same features, but it has 1D armrests, which means that they are finally height adjustable. In terms of comfort and ergonomics, this is big deal. However, this chair from GTRacing is more expensive. It also has a weight capacity of 300 lbs. which is always nice to have.

Overall, I am much more confident in recommending this chair. For $50 more you will have a much better experience. Check the price on Amazon if you are interested.

Devoko Ergonomic Chair

Devoko Ergonomic Gaming Chair Racing Style Adjustable Height High-Back PC Computer Chair with Headrest and Lumbar Support Executive Office Chair (Red)

Features :

  • weight capacity: 300 lbs
  • Armrest: Fixed
  • Backrest: 90°-180° and rocking chair
  • Cover material: PU leather
  • Foam: Low-quality sponge foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: Average to Large

This gaming chair from Devoko (link to Amazon) has the exact same features as the Homall gaming chair. So, it lacks the adjustable armrest but has all the other features. At this point, this is more about your personal preference.

Strangely, it is the exact same size as the Homall gaming chair. This type of chair can be very good if you have the right size for it. I would say if you are 5’10 or less this is probably a good chair. But if you are 6’2″, I think you should considerer investing a little bit more.

Ficmax Ergonomic Gaming Chair Racing

Ficmax Ergonomic Gaming Chair Racing Style Office Chair Recliner Computer Chair PU Leather High-Back E-Sports Chair Height Adjustable Gaming Office Desk Chair with Massage Lumbar Support and Footrest

Features :

  • weight capacity: 300 lbs
  • Armrest: 1D
  • Backrest: 90°-180° and rocking chair
  • Cover material: PU leather
  • Foam: Low-quality sponge foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: Average to Large

In my opinion one of the best option in this category. The Ficmax gaming chair is a very compelling offer (Check the price on Amazon) for various reasons. The number one reason is the fact that it has adjustable armrests (something that the Homall gaming chair lacks). In addition to that, this is a fairly large and tall chair.

You will get more room for your back, and your legs which is pretty nice. You also get a footrest. This is a little bit gimmicky in my opinion, but this can be very handy.

On the other hand, it is the most expensive chairs in this category. Still, I think a very good deal, especially for bulky gamers.

Best gaming chairs between $200 and $300

Congratulations, at this price point you will find more popular brands such as DXRacer. But you won’t get their best model. To be honest, this category is a little bit thinner than what I expected.

DXRacer Formula Series

DXRacer OH/FD101/NW White & Black Formula Series Gaming Chair Ergonomic High Backrest Office Computer Chair Esports Chair Swivel Tilt and Recline with Headrest and Lumbar Cushion + Warranty

 Features :

  • weight capacity: 200 lbs
  • Armrest: 1D-3D
  • Backrest: 90°-180° and rocking chair
  • Cover material: PU leather or fabric
  • Foam: Cold-cured foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: Slim to average

Great chair to start, the DXRacer Formula Series (check price on Amazon) most popular chair of the brand. And for good reasons. Depending on the version you take, you can find 3D armrests, which are very nice. It has a very good build quality, and it is quite comfortable. You just have to be aware that this chair is made for slim to average people. The height limit for this chair is 5’10”, so if you are taller than that, you should not get this chair. Another interesting thing about this chair is the choice of colors that you have. I can assure that you will find the colors that will match perfectly your gaming setup.

DXRacer Racing Series

DXRacer Racing Series DOH/RV131/NO Office Chair Gaming Chair Carbon Look Vinyle Ergonomic Computer Chair eSports Desk Chair Executive Chair Furniture with Free Cushions (Black/Orange)

 Features :

  • weight capacity: 200 lbs
  • Armrest: 3D
  • Backrest: 90°-135° and rocking chair
  • Cover material: PU leather
  • Foam: Cold-cured foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: Slim to average

The Racing series is the model just above the Formula series. I put this in the category, but in reality, the Racing Series often costs a little bit more than $300, it depends on the model you choose, but the base model is just slightly less than $300.

The major improvement that you get are the armrests, which are now 3D, and a much taller back. Unfortunately, the weight capacity stays the same. This is great for tall and slim people, where the Formula series was too short for them. You can check out the price on Amazon if you are interested in.

Arozzi Torretta XL

Features :

  • weight capacity: 260 lbs
  • Armrest: 3D
  • Backrest: 90°-145° and rocking chair
  • Cover material: fabric
  • Foam: Cold-cured foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: Average to large

The Arozzi Torretta XL is a large chair (Check the current price on Amazon). This is one of the best options for big and tall guys that exist for less than $300. I know that Luke from LTT did a review on that chair and didn’t recommend it, but I think he was just too big for the chair.
The Arozzi Torretta XL is also covered in fabric, which is a cheaper material than PU leather, but it can be a better option for guys that sweat a lot.

Best gaming chairs between $300 and $400

Now, this is serious business. At this point, you can get outstanding products. With great build quality and a lot of features. This is also a crowded category because there are a lot of good gaming chairs that cost between $300 and $400. Nonetheless, I tried my best to give you some example of very good offers.

Maxnomic Casual Sport

Features :

  • weight capacity: 330 lbs
  • Armrest: 4D
  • Backrest: 90°-165° and rocking chair
  • Cover material: PU Leather
  • Foam: Cold-cured foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: Small to Average

This gaming chair from Maxnomic is one of the best gaming chairs for slim and average people. Not only you will get 4D armrests (which is the highest type you can have) but you will get a chair with a very distinct and cool design (at least that is my opinion). There are a bunch of different models to choose from in this series. You will have no trouble finding one that will please you.

You can find their chair at https://www.needforseat.com/ if you are interested.

AKRacing SX gaming chair

AKRacing Core Series SX Gaming Chair with High Backrest, Recliner, Swivel, Tilt, Rocker and Seat Height Adjustment Mechanisms with 5/10 Warranty - Lavender

Features :

  • weight capacity: 330 lbs
  • Armrest: 3D
  • Backrest: 90°-165° and rocking chair
  • Cover material: PU Leather
  • Foam: Cold-cured foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: Average to large

I think before AKRacing decided to rename all their products, this was the AKRacing Nitro, but it is now called the AKRacing SX Gaming Chair (Check the current price on Amazon).

Nonetheless, this is a quite large gaming chair. If you are a bulky guy, this might be the chair that will be good for you. Compared to the Maxonmic chair, the AKRacing SX doesn’t have 4D armrest and it costs more. On the other hand, the Maxnomic chair is smaller.

AKRacing Core Series EX

AKRacing Core Series EX Gaming Chair with High Backrest, Recliner, Swivel, Tilt, Rocker and Seat Height Adjustment Mechanisms with 5/10 Warranty - Black

Features :

  • weight capacity: 330 lbs
  • Armrest: 3D
  • Backrest: 90°-165° and rocking chair
  • Cover material: Fabric
  • Foam: Cold-cured foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: Average to large

This chair is very similar to the AKRacing SX series; the only major difference is the cover material which is now in fabric. Moreover, the Core Series EX is slightly smaller than the AKRacing SX series. If you want to save a couple of bucks, you can take this gaming chair instead of the more expense SX series.

Noblechairs Epic

  • Cover material: PU leather, or real leather
  • Foam: Cold-cured foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: Average to large

Easily on my top 10 best gaming chairs of all time. The Noblechairs Epic is a tremendous chair. The build quality is outstanding, and it has all the highest features possible. Plus, if you want to go all the way out premium, you can take the real leather version. This chair is more designed for tall people. If you measure less than 5’9″, the Noblechairs Epic might not be for you.
Despite that, the Noblechairs Epic has become quite popular among PC gamer enthusiasts. This is due to the elegant design and a very interesting price (link to Amazon).

Noblechairs Icon

  • Backrest: 90°-135° and rocking chair
  • Cover material: PU leather, or real leather
  • Foam: Cold-cured foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: Average to large

The big brother of the Noblechairs Epic, the Noblechairs Icon (Check the current price on Amazon) has a completely new design. The racing style is almost gone, and we have something that could be in a traditional office.

You can see one of them in Linus Tech Tips office. The Noblechairs Icon is perfect for people who don’t like wings on gaming chairs. A perfect chair even for a non-gamer!

SecretLab Throne

SecretLab-Throne

Features :

  • weight capacity: 220 lbs
  • Armrest: 4D
  • Backrest: 90°-135° and rocking chair
  • Cover material: PU leather, or real leather
  • Foam: Cold-cured foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: Small

SecretLab is one the best gaming chair brand out there. It offers excellent build quality and awesome features. The SecretLab Throne is the cheapest and the smallest chairs of their lineup.

To me, this is the best gaming chair you can have if you are a small person. Sincerely, there is no competition that can touch this chair. Trust me, you will not regret it.

Best gaming chairs between $400 and $500

Here, you are in the high-end area of the gaming chair world. At these prices, I am going to be honest, everything you pick will be good. Sure, there are some choices that are more clever depending on your situation, but at the end of the day, you will get a very good chair.

  • Cover material: PU leather, or real leather

  • head cushion and lumbar support

The Noblechairs Hero is the big brother of the Noblechairs family (Check the current price on Amazon). It is made to support large individuals or people that just want more space in their gaming chair. It has the same features as the ICON and the EPIC, but it is just bigger. Therefore, this is the most expensive of the 3. I would like to mention that the Noblechairs Hero is big but not that big. What I mean by that is, if you need a very big chair, I wouldn’t take the Noblechairs Hero.

Vertagear PL6000

Vertagear P-Line PL6000 Racing Series Gaming Chair - Carbon/Black (Rev. 2)

Features :

  • weight capacity: 440 lbs
  • Armrest: 4D
  • Backrest: 90°-140° and rocking chair

  • Foam: Cold-cured foam

The Vertagear PL6000 (Check the current price on Amazon) is the high-end gaming chair of the Vertagear brand. The main advantage of this chair is the size; it is quite big. It also has a massive weight capacity of 440 lbs.

This is the highest you can have on a gaming chair. This chair is perfect for a big and tall guy who wants a solid chair for their gaming sessions. Compared to Noblechairs Hero, it is much taller.

DXRacer King

  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: Large

The DXRacer King (Check the price on Amazon) is the chair that Jayztwocents the Youtuber uses. And this is the first gaming chair that I got. This chair is very good, not as good as the SecretLab Titan (in my opinion), but this is a very solid option for large people.

It is quite spacious and very comfortable to use. With this chair, you make no sacrifice in terms of comfort and ergonomy. I’ve used it for several months before I switch to my Secretlab Titan, and I can say the DXRacer King is on my Top 10 best gaming chairs of all times…

Vertagear PL4500

VERTAGEAR VG-PL4500_BL Racing Series P-Line PL4500 Gaming Chair Black/Blue Edition Features :

  • Backrest: 90°-140° and rocking chair
  • Cover material: PU leather and special “coffee” fiber.
  • Foam: Cold-cured foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: Large

The Vertagear PL4500 is a unique-looking gaming chair. From what I know this is the only gaming chair on the market that has RGB LEDs. If you are interested in RGB, this is one of the few gaming chairs, that does it.

Aside from that, the PL4500 is a high-end gaming chair with all the features that come with it: 4D armrest, premium quality, and spacious seat and backrest. It also features a new type of fabric, made with what they call “coffee fiber.”

Overall, this is a very solid experience that should please anyone.

  • Cover material: PU leather, leather, fabric
  • Foam: High-density Cold-cured foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: Average

The SecretLab Omega is the better option in this category. With its outstanding build quality, it surpasses anything that I have seen. I use the SecretLab Titan (because I need a bigger chair), but the SecretLab Omega has pretty much the same features. The only downside that I see in this chair is the size. The SecretLab Omega is not a very big chair. To be fair, it is intended to be used by average gamers. You can check the price on SecretLab.co if you want to know more about them.

Best gaming chairs over $500

At this point, not only do you have the best of the best, but they are also bigger than before. This is a category of gaming chairs that is useful for big and tall guys who want a premium chair that will fit their body.

The DXRacer Tank (Check the price on Amazon) is the ultimate solution for big guys from DXRacer. It is made to support massive charges for a long period of time. Other than that, it is quite standard.

The design is the same Racing style that you can find on any gaming chairs, and the features are the same as any high-end gaming chair. Nonetheless, DXRacer is able to produce a chair for extreme cases, something that many manufacturers struggle to do.

AKRacing Masters Series Pro Luxury XL

AKRacing Masters Series Pro Luxury XL Gaming Chair with High Backrest, Recliner, Swivel, Tilt, 4D Armrests, Rocker & Seat Height Adjustment Mechanisms, 5/10 Warranty - Black

Features :

  • weight capacity: 330 lbs
  • Armrest: 4D
  • Backrest: 90°-180° and rocking chair
  • Cover material: PU leather
  • Foam: High-density Cold-cured foam
  • head cushion and lumbar support
  • Chair size: XL

The Pro Gaming Chair is the flagship of AKRacing (Check the current price on Amazon here). It is a very spacious chair with all the high-end features you can get. The main advantage of this gaming chair is the recline angle: 180° is higher than most chairs in this category. The more weight the chair has to support, the more the maximum angle will be reduced. I don’t know exactly why, but this is something that I’ve observed.

SecretLab Titan

  • weight capacity: 290 lbs
  • Armrest: 4D
  • Backrest: 90°-165° and rocking chair
  • Cover material: PU leather, real leather, or fabric
  • Foam: High-density Cold-cured foam
  • head cushion and integrated lumbar support
  • Chair size: XL

The SecretLab Titan is my favorite chair of all time. This is the chair that I recommend choosing if you want a high-end gaming chair. To me, this is the best gaming chair on the market. I have done an in-depth review of the SecretLab Titan for you.
In a nutshell, I feel like the SecretLab is better than the DXRacer King that I had for the last few years. The build quality is exceptional, and it is the most comfortable chair that I have ever had.

Edit: SecretLab has released an upgraded version of the Titan, the 2020 Series. Although it is very similar to the 2018 version, the 2020 Series really impressed me.
