Gaming setups don’t just provide the optimal gaming experience in terms of comfort and speed, they also flaunt a unique aesthetic that makes it all the more elating for you to settle in and game through the night.
While there are many ways to decorate your gaming setup, gamer girls on TikTok are currently boasting a chic, pink aesthetic. Their gaming setups feature everything from sakura keyboards to pastel kitty-ear headphones, and they don’t just look the part, they do a great job too.
But for those of you who’re also loving the trending pink aesthetic, you’re in for a treat. Ahead, we share the accessories you need to build a cute, pink-decked TikTok-style gaming setup!
All gamers need an ergonomic gaming chair that’ll let them play comfortably for hours; after all, you never know when one hour of gaming will extend into many. Thus, you should expect an ergonomic gaming chair to provide you with lumbar, upper back and neck support, as well as have a high level of adjustability to suit your build.

Switch your in-ear earpiece for a good pair of headphones that’s comfortable on your ears and gives you great quality sound! It’s not necessary to get a gaming headset too. Instead, good over-the-ear headphones can do just as great (or an even better) job in terms of comfort and sound.

You can toggle them depending on whether you want to be present in the world around you or fully immerse in the virtual landscapes. It’s also compatible with PC, consoles, and mobile devices.
We’re certainly not forgetting style – while Sony WH-1000XM4 Headphones are a close competitor, the Bose ones come in elegant rose gold, besides classic black and silver!

For example, you can set the ears to turn red each time a viewer reacts with a red heart. It’s all the more reason to hop onto Twitch – you’ll get to show off your kitty-ears in addition to the rest of your chic pink gaming setup.

No one wants to game with their tiny monitor speakers! Instead, you’ll want a soundbar or pair of speakers that can bring your games to life.
With a quality soundbar, you won’t have to crank your volume to the fullest to catch the resonating thuds of the enemy’s footsteps in the distance or crisp rustling as you make your way through the foliage in Horizon Forbidden West. When you’re not gaming, you’ll also enjoy an ultra-immersive experience with clear and dynamic sounds, whether you’re binging your favourite Netflix series or listening to symphonic tunes on Spotify.
Creative Sound BlasterX Katana
A quality soundbar with RGB lighting in the mix, the Creative Sound BlasterX Katana gives you 5.1 virtual surround sound, or 7.1 when combined with a subwoofer. That’s because the soundbar houses two up-firing midbass drivers and two high-excursion tweeters, along with a long-throw driver within its subwoofer – it gives you clear sounds with rich, resonating bass for a superior listening experience.
The soundbar’s sleek design and comparably smaller size – shorter than 60cm in length – also allows it to fit in easily with most gaming setups, without clashing with the overall aesthetic. You can expect 49 programmable LED lights in 16.8 million colours, which means: hello chic pink gaming setup, goodbye dull-looking soundbars!

Unless you want to squint at a small screen for hours at a time as you game, you’ll definitely need a monitor to complete your gaming setup.
Two key features you should look out for in a monitor is a fast refresh rate, nothing less than 120Hz, as well as quick response time no slower than 3ms. These will keep your gaming experience smooth and seamless.
If you want to decorate your monitor, you can do what some girl gamers do, which is to attach their favourite figurines on the top of the screen. However, most gamers take a no-frills approach with their monitors, choosing to spruce up their setup with multiple screens instead.
Regular PCs may do the trick when you’re playing less demanding games such as Minecraft, but a gaming PC – with a powerful process, graphics card, and motherboard – will run games much smoother, faster, and visually better too. It’ll also support the more demanding games such as The Witcher 3 and Grand Theft Auto 5.
Many gamer girls on TikTok flaunt a glorious aesthetic that’s a product of their custom-built PCs. This includes parts like a motherboard, water cooler, and case fans.
Building a custom PC takes time – you’ll have to research and handpick the components you need to give you the custom gaming PC that you desire. Thus, before you choose between a custom-built or pre-built PC, it’s best that you first consider factors such as budget, the time it takes to assemble the PC, and the operating system that you’ll need.
