Buying a gaming chair can be expensive, which is why we've brought you all the best cheap gaming chair deals right now. Some of these can still rival the very best gaming chairs while costing less than the $500 / £500 price you often see for those premium options.

Right here, we've looked at seats that combine support, comfort, and gaming aesthetics for less. Some of the best office chairs may offer similar features but the racerback design draws many towards the bucket style of a gaming chair instead. 

Below, we've included gaming chairs that mostly retail for less than $300 / £300 / AU$500. That's a chunky sum but it's a good figure to aim for when considering a long-term investment in a quality but more affordable gaming chair.

There are many gaming chair sales throughout the year that bring prices down even further, so there's always a bargain to be found if you look in the right place. Once your chair is sorted, this may also be a good time to invest in a cheap gaming desk and cheap gaming monitor so you get the ultimate setup.

Cheap gaming chair deals - FAQs

Got anything else you want to know about before buying a cheap gaming chair? We've answered the most common questions here, including where to find the best gaming chair sales, whether a gaming chair is a worthwhile investment and what makes them so expensive in the first place.

Are cheap gaming chairs worth it?

Cheap gaming chairs can provide the gamer aesthetic that many have fallen in love with since the DXRacer first brought the bucket into fashion. As you move up the price bracket, though, you can end up paying more for the brand emblazoned on the head cushion than the comfort you receive. You can find perfectly ergonomic chairs with plenty of adjustment options and deep cushioning for between $100 and $300 (£100 and £300), however some options just over this price bracket do still hold value in additional cooling options and high quality, breathable fabrics. 

All in all, then, cheap gaming chairs are absolutely worth it if you're looking for a more comfortable chair with the classic racer style. If, however, you're all about the ergonomics and don't care too much about the appearance you might find a better price on some of the best office chairs

Why are gaming chairs sometimes so expensive?

In the era of Twitch branding, even gaming chair sales can't disguise the fact that many seats are horribly overpriced. Usually, these chairs come from the bigger gaming brands who have moved for a push towards streaming advertisement through a logo stitched onto a headrest. That means gaming chairs can be expensive when a brand has taken on a life of its own through social media. In most cases, it will be easy to spot these chairs with a quick look at adjustment options, comfort levels, and cushioning support though.

Need more gaming goodies? We've got you covered. For a new screen, you can browse through the latest cheap gaming monitors.
