Each gaming setup begins with the PC. CES 2015 is the place, where top gaming hardware manufacturers showed their gaming desktops. However, we chose just one of them Dell Alienware Area 51. Dell's Alienware series proved to be one of the best in the gaming world. This year the company offered its fans not only great performance configuration, but also innovative box design. Eccentricity is not something new to gamers. However, Dell managed to break our idea of how a desktop machine should look. When it comes to performance, Dell offers four different configuration setups. The characteristics varies from:

CPU: 4th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Processor

RAM: 8-16GB


GPU: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 980

OS: Windows 8.1

What a machine, right? That's what we call hardcore gaming PC configuration. Dell Alienware Area-51 bundles bizarre, iconic, innovative design and unprecedented gaming power. Thus it absolutely deserves its place in our Top 5: CES 2015 Gaming Hardware list.

Mad Catz R.A.T. PROx

If you are an FPS fan, you will definitely love the next participant in our list. Games like Far Cry 4, Titanfall, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and other shooters require a decent and fast mouse. That's why we would like to present you the weirdest gaming mouse at CES 2015 – R.A.T. PROx.
It's designed by Mad Catz, a well-known company to most gamers. R.A.T. PROx is the most bizarre adjustable gaming mouse today. Even at first sight, you can notice its alien design. It is really easy to confuse it with a spaceship. Actually, the first time we saw a picture of Mad Catz' mouse, we thought that it's some kind of NASA's concept.

This hardware is enough for a home (indoor) gaming setup. What about outdoor gaming? Kids are spending more and more time in front of the PC. Parents find it very hard to make their kids go outside and have fun. A kickstarter project, called LyteShot is about to change that. Its project is a sensor-based mobile gaming platform.
