Your gaming chair broke, and you’re looking to get a new one? Are you afraid you will need to spend a big amount of money to find a great gaming chair for your personal taste? Well, do not fear as we have chosen five best gaming chair under $100. Our picks are focused towards budget gamer who want a great gaming chair without spending half of their paycheck.

Of course, we based our picks on the price, but that’s not the only point we based our choices off. Under this category chairs are starting to have that “gaming racing chair” look, the racing car look, which is not needed to have a good chair, but still having a stylish design is always fun.

The comfort and ergonomic support are crucial, let’s be real here, it’s pretty rare someone will sit on his gaming chair for 1 hour only, I mean some people might do it, but the majority of gamers play for long sessions. Having back support is good, you might not feel it because you’re young, but when you get older the back injuries will appear, so having a good back support is important.

We checked the max weight limit as well, I don’t want to sound mean or anything, but we preferred to have a high max weight, so all of our picks could be accessible to even more people.

Editor’s Pick: The big winner of our list is the HomCom Race Car Style PU Leather Gaming. We choose this chair for multiples reasons. First the modern look, it’s very stylish and elegant. Second, the customization you can adjust the weight, you can remove the armrest for additional comfort. Last but not least the comfort for those long gaming session.
