MSI’s PC Gaming Holiday Gift Guide 2021

Written by Contributor

December 17, 2021

Encountering the rage-inducing ‘out-of-stock’ notification when trying to snag a new-gen console can quickly put a dampener on your holiday festivities. After all, kicking back and enjoying the latest games in your living room with a brand-new console would have been the ideal Christmas gift.

Well, grab an MSI Gaming PC along with a gorgeous monitor for a kickass gaming setup. What’s more, it can double up as an entertainment center or become THE place for friends to gather during the holidays for superb local multiplayer gaming sessions.

In the holiday spirit, MSI would love to give you a head start on your Gaming PC journey this Christmas! So we’re giving away GCash for gamers buying both an MSI Gaming Desktop and an MSI Gaming Monitor. You’ll find more details towards the end of this article.

First, let’s see what sorts of setups you can build for gaming and/or entertainment purposes. Whether you’re a fan of the latest, most demanding games or you prefer co-op games with lots of friends around you, there’s a perfect setup for you.


Setup #1: The Living Room Gaming Hub

Compact Gaming Desktop PCs

One of the most touted benefits of a console is that you can tuck it away into the corner of your living room or on your TV unit, and it blends into the room naturally. It gives you access to a powerful gaming hub in your living room without affecting its layout or design. MSI’s compact Gaming Desktop lineup replicates this advantage and doesn’t stop there.

The Trident Gaming Desktop line takes it to a whole other level. Not only do they feature the most powerful hardware on the market in a slim, clean chassis, but their gorgeous design adds class to any living room setup. What’s more, they are small enough to fade away into the background if you want them to. But speaking from experience, hiding it away is the last thing you’d want to do.

You can equip MSI’s Trident Desktops with up to an Intel Core i7 11700K CPU and an RTX 3080 graphics card.


Setup #2: The Entertainment Center-Gaming Nook

1000R Curved Gaming Monitors

If you and/or your family and loved ones spend a considerable amount of time huddled around a screen, binging on the latest Netflix shows, a setup with a 1000R curved display is a perfect choice.

Although just watching a movie or show on a larger screen seems like the logical way to improve your viewing experience, sometimes it just isn’t that straightforward. Unfortunately, large flat-screen monitors and TVs limit the angles at which you can view them.

Suppose you’re watching a show and your family is crowded around the screen. The picture at the edges of a flat screen might appear washed out or straight-up discolored due to the sharp viewing angles. On the other hand, an expansive 1000R curved monitor will retain picture quality even at its edges.

MSI’s ARTYMIS Series of Curved Monitors offer a natural 1000R Curvature that perfectly aligns with the human field of view. Not only does this help make the picture look right at nearly every angle, but it also reduces eye fatigue. In fact, research has shown that these 1000R curved monitors are much more comfortable to use for long gaming or viewing sessions compared to their flatter counterparts.


Celebrate the Holidays with MSI!

Whether you want to gift a gaming setup to a loved one and you know they love having their friends and family around, playing fun multiplayer games, or they prefer a living room gaming PC that allows for gaming on the large screen, one of the above setups will be an unforgettable gift this Christmas.

We’ll gift you Steam codes for every purchase of an eligible MSI monitor and desktop PC.

Hey, if you’re hunting for the perfect monitor to pair with new-gen Consoles like the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S, go over our list of best console gaming monitors.
