Selecting A High Performance Mouse For Monster Hunter World

We opted for this higher quality gaming mouse, Cooler Master MM710, because it would cater to the Action, Online genre type that Monster Hunter World sits in. This is still the best priced mouse we had in our lists today, just a better quality peripheral than we might normally consider.

Monster Hunter World Benefits From a High Quality Audio Headset

Now we take a look at the headsets available for our build, and with a game that comes in under this genre we want to increase the quality of the headset we pick to help us better enjoy the games audible immersion. Sifting through the prices and headsets available today brings us on to the Tritton ARK Elite 7.1 gaming headset. A comfortable and well balanced set of cones that are still available for a reasonable price. There are other headset options that we have seen and would recommend, across a variety of price points, so take a look at our list above in the PC build.
