Top 25 Budget Gaming Lights To Pimp Your Gaming Setup


Let’s be honest, you didn’t build your gaming PC just because it was more economical than buying a prebuilt. You did it for the experience of building the system and the ability to personalize its looks. Modern gaming PCs are like tuner cars, they are endlessly customizable.

And there’s a really cheap way to pimp out your gaming setup. Lights add incredible depth and style to your gaming room without putting a hole in your pocket. That’s why I created this list of the top 25 budget gaming lights to pimp your gaming setup.

  • Insanely good value for the amount of equipment you’re getting
  • Compatible with a wide range of devices- monitors, TVs, desks, etc.
  • You can control it with the IR remote or app from your phone
  • Quality LED strip with soldered joints and 3M tape for maximum adhesion

This is probably one of the cheapest ways to add some extra bling to your gaming setup. Whether it’s a gaming PC on a desk or a console gaming setup with a TV cabinet in the living room. The LED strip itself is around 6.5 feet long but all of it isn’t occupied by LEDs.

If you were to ask me, I’d say this is perfect for 50 inch TVs if you wish to use the entire length. You can also cut off segments of the strip and use parts of it elsewhere. The light patterns and brightness/ color settings are controlled via Bluetooth, using a phone app.

  • Short strips have 15 individually addressable RGB LEDs
  • Long strips have 27 individually addressable RGB LEDs
  • A combination of magnetic fasteners and adhesive tape ensures a secure mount
  • External light controller included within the box

Corsair is a well-known brand when it comes to gaming hardware and peripherals. So it stands to reason that their take on LED lights is built a lot better than most no-name brands from China. The iCUE LS100 uses light diffusers on its strips that do two things.

First, they soften the hue creating a gentler glow that doesn’t feel visually distracting. Secondly, they spread out the light from its source which gives a slight neon vibe to the strips. There are 4 strips with individually addressable RGB LEDs, and they are chained together with braided cables (you also get a controller hub).

Whether you use these for your home entertainment system in the living room or a gaming PC desk, they are sure to add more personality to your setup. Capable of working both vertically and horizontally, these light bars provide very warm colors. Diffusers are built into the housing so the light glows uniformly across its entire length.

In terms of brightness, a couple of these will light up your entire gaming setup if the room is dimly lit. You can easily control the brightness and color settings with a phone app. There are various modes like static, pulse, strobe, wave, etc. and the built-in mic can dynamically switch between these modes using ambient sound.

Have you ever watched a tech review on Youtube and seen these weird looking hexagonal wall lights in the background? They provide a unique lighting effect that adds mystique and character to any gaming setup. Plus, you can play around with these lights and rearrange them in any pattern you want.

You can even order 2 packs of these for a total of 12 hexagons that can all be chained together and controlled by the same remote. And the best part is that you can touch the lights in the center to activate them or change colors. These aren’t true RGB lights, they just cycle between 13 different colors.

The Govee light bars from before with a new smart control module that can integrate with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. This means you can use voice commands and tell the bars which lighting effect you want. You can also change colors, pulsing speed, brightness, etc. with voice commands.

Of course, good old Bluetooth also works so you can simply go into the phone app and switch things if silence is necessary. In terms of mounting, you have two options. Either use the included brackets and mount these to the back of your TV/ monitor or just stand them up on a desk/ cabinet.

  • You get 6 LED strips stretching out up to 9 feet in length
  • Links can be added or removed to increase/ decrease the strip length
  • Easy inline controls for color and strobing speed
  • 20 different colors, 8 brightness settings, and 8 speeds

This LED light strip is multicolor, not RGB. This means you can cycle through 20 different colors, but you don’t have a spectrum with millions of colors like true RGB. And you can’t individually instruct LEDs on a strip, which is reasonable given the price of this kit.

There are a total of 6 strips and 5 connectors. You can remove or add strips depending on the size of whatever it is that you’re trying to light up. The first strip is the master control strip and it has an inline module to change color/ speed.

  • Over 32 feet of LED strips
  • IR remote to control effects like speed, brightness, etc.
  • Comes with double-sided adhesive tape for wall/ desk mounting
  • Plastic mounting brackets are also included for extra support

I was impressed when I found out that PANGTON uses SMD 5050 RGB LEDs in its strips. The number means that each LED chip measures 5.0mm x 5.0mm, and it has 3 diodes in it for that RGB glow. Compared to a standard 3528 LED chip that you see on lower-end strips; a 5050 chip is much brighter.

That higher level of brightness shines through during the day and is useful for areas with good ambient lighting. Even with room lights on, you can easily see the glow of the RGB LED strip. The remote controller lets you choose from 6 preset lighting modes while also giving you the option to create your own “DIY” mode.

Unlike other items on this list, the BlissLights Sky Lite is a projector that displays an image of a night sky on your room’s walls. You aim this at the ceiling, turn on the light show, and let it do its magic. In the background, there is a nebula.

In the foreground, you get a moving field of stars that drift past this nebula. You can change the color of the nebula, but the stars will be blue. All the color/ brightness settings can be controlled via Bluetooth using the designated phone app.

  • Thanks to RGBIC, individual LED strips can display multiple colors at the same time
  •  Works great as mood lighting in your living room or as desk lighting for your gaming setup

While it’s marketed as a TV backlight, you can easily use it on monitors for your gaming PC. And the included camera is a neat little gimmick that captures colors on your screen and uses that information to change the color of the LED strips. For example- if your TV/ monitor screen is predominantly showing blue, the LED strips will try to mirror it.

These are RGBIC strips which means that each individual LED can be addressed and made to show a different color. An integrated microphone captures ambient noise and uses that to switch between lighting modes. You can also control the lights with voice commands using Alexa or Google Assistant.

The PlayStation brand is so ubiquitous and recognizable that even people who don’t play games have heard of it. And that’s one of the reasons this particular gaming light is so good- it immediately draws the attention of people. Even those who aren’t gamers.

Plus, it’s fully licensed so you can treat it as a collector’s item. The Paladone PlayStation light shows the classic triangle, circle, X, and square buttons that you see on every PlayStation controller. It can cycle between 3 different modes (static, color phasing, music reactive).

Much like the PlayStation light, it is fully licensed by Microsoft. If you own a console setup with both PlayStation and Xbox, you could purchase both lights to represent each console. You can power this light with a standard 5V USB cable or 3 AAA batteries.

Pacman is one of the earliest video games ever made, an arcade sensation that eventually found its way onto 8-bit home consoles. This lamp is designed after one of the several ghosts that you encounter in the game. It can glow in different colors and there are various lighting modes like a static color, wave, phase, etc.

Oh, and there’s this knob on the back called the “party switch”. What does it do? Well, you can adjust it to change the rate at which the lamp switches between colors and brightness levels.

You can buy multiple units and place them in different corners of your room to create an aura-like glow around your gaming desk. Plus, the actual floor stand is extremely compact which means you can squeeze one of these into tight corners without touching other furniture.

Like many other LED strips of this type, it uses an IR remote control with several preset lighting modes. And there’s also a “DIY” function that lets you set the colors/ brightness manually.

They also work under the monitor (or attached to the back of your monitor). You will notice that diffusers are built into the strips so you get a uniform glow instead of individual light sources.

You can even select the ideal color temperature depending on the time of day (adjustable between 3000K and 6000K). Every aspect of lighting can be adjusted with the inline control, like brightness, color, effect, etc.

The light bar can attach to the bottom of your monitor or TV with adhesive tape. You can hook up 2 or even 4 light bars to the back of your monitor and control all of them with just one IR remote. Each bar measures 12.5” in length.

It’s not a revolutionary design by any means, but you’re still getting excellent value for money. The light bars have diffuser layers built-in so you get a smooth and consistent glow effect. For vertical orientation, plastic stands are included within the package.

You can also mount these directly to the back of a monitor or TV using magnets (magnets are built into the light bar). Since the Magiacous is proper RGB, you get a full 16.8 million colors to choose from. And various lighting effects like fade, pulse, static, etc. 

Conclusion

As you can see, gaming lights come in various forms. You’ve got LED strips that go inside the PC case or under your desk. There are lights that you can strap onto the back of your TV/ monitor. You even have lights that sync with the software on your computer.

Some lights go on your wall, lights that act as corner lamps. Some even look like neon signs that you’d see in a cyberpunk game. Take a look at your gaming room, select the type of light that you think will elevate it up a notch.

Skylights can produce unique and interesting patterns on your walls, so they are ideal for lighting up your whole room. LED light strips are good for spotlighting. Take care not to overdo the lighting, since it might end up being distracting (not to mention wire management).
