Valve's upcoming Switch-sized gaming PC, the Steam Deck, has taken the gaming community by storm ever since it was recently announced and became available for preorder. The ability to take the best PC games in your Steam library on the go is an incredibly exciting concept, and because of that, thousands upon thousands of gamers have reserved a Steam Deck for when they'll start shipping in December 2021. If you're one of those people, check out some of the best Steam Deck accessories that you can (and should) pair with your Steam Deck when it arrives.

If we had to choose

All of these accessories will pair with the Steam Deck well, but if we had to recommend just one, it would be the SteelSeries Arctis Pro headset. Despite being a few years old, this headset is still our favorite choice for PC gaming thanks to its incredible sound, crystal-clear microphone, and superb comfort. The dedicated DAC is nice, too, and the fact that they're fairly light means that they're easy to carry around. The Razer Hammerhead TW Pro earbuds are a great alternative if you want to go wireless.

If you want a keyboard and mouse to use, we recommend pairing the SteelSeries Apex Pro with the Razer DeathAdder v2 for a premium experience. Both peripherals are built well and have top-notch performance, making them well worth picking up. Go with the Logitech G915 TKL and the Logitech G502 Lightspeed if you want to avoid wires.

Finally, if you want to get comfortable while enjoying your Steam Deck, look no further than the awesome Furmax gaming recliner. It has plenty of cushioning and lots of options for adjustability, which make it perfect for kicking back and relaxing with your Switch-sized gaming PC.
