Gamer Gift Guide 2016: Gifts for the Aspiring Streamer

1 of 8

Video game streaming has quickly become one of the biggest forms of entertainment in recent years. People just love watching other people play games. I know I've spent plenty of time watching various people play through a wide variety of games on Twitch.

Now you may be that person watching and thinking, "I can do that! I should really get into this whole streaming thing, but I have no idea what kind of equipment I need. If only someone made a list of things I need to get started."

Fear not, for this is the guide for you.

Now before we get into the guide, let me say that I am basing all of these picks off of having a PC on top of whatever you are streaming from. I feel that this is the best way to run a stream, as you have more control over what your end product is going to look like.

If you don't have a PC to run everything through, I highly recommend reading up on why you should build your own gaming PC, and then following this guide to building a PC for under $500.
