TimTheTatman is one of the most popular livestreamers in the world. Having started his career on Twitch in 2012, he attracted viewers and grew a steady audience across a variety of games including Fortnite, Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, CS:GO, and Overwatch.

In September 2021, Tim left Twitch for an exclusive contract with YouTube Gaming. And despite departing from the platform where he grew his audience, many of Tim’s biggest fans have followed him to YouTube.

Throughout his time on both platforms, Tim has built up one of the more substantive portfolios of sponsors that have given him PC and streaming gear to make his setup uniquely his own. While many of his peripherals are given to him through partnerships, he spares no expense to make sure that his non-sponsored pieces of equipment are top-of-the-line items.

Here’s a list of some of the main components that make up TimTheTatman’s streaming setup. 

Mouse: HyperX Pulsefire Haste

Tim previously used the Razer Deathadder V2, but since becoming sponsored HyperX in 2021, he has transitioned to the Pulsefire Haste, a lightweight mouse with optical mouse buttons that utilize infrared light. Tim said the Pulsefire Haste is the first mouse he has used that has holes on the top to reduce the weight.

Keyboard: HyperX Alloy Elite 2

Tim uses the HyperX Alloy Elite 2, a full-size RGB keyboard that has the HyperX Pudding keycaps, mechanical switches, and dedicated media keys at the top of the keyboard.

Headset: HyperX Cloud Alpha S

Tim’s HyperX sponsorship did not only change his mouse and keyboard, but he also swapped out his Audio-Technica headset for the HyperX Cloud Alpha S. The headset boasts HyperX 7.1 surround sound, a detachable microphone, 50mm drivers, and the option of using either the leatherette ear cups or fabric cushions.

Monitor: LG 27GL850

With a 27-inch display, Tim’s 144hz monitor will cost you a pretty penny. The LG product has NVIDIA and G-sync compatibility as well as a nano IPS one millisecond response time. If this is perhaps a little bit above your budgetary restrictions, LG also offers some more modest options with fewer hertz and smaller screens. 

At the same time, the brand has 4k monitors for those who want to get an even better visual gaming experience than Tim.

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition

As a streamer that wants to put out the highest-quality Warzone gameplay possible, Tim has upgraded the graphics card in his gaming PC multiple times. His current GPU is the NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3090 Founders Edition, which is one of the highest-performing (and most expensive) graphics cards on the market.

CPU: Intel Core i9-10900K

To go along with his ultra-powerful GPU, Tim has an i9-10900K processor in his gaming PC. The CPU, while expensive, obviously does the trick for a streamer like Tim.

The CPU has a clock speed of 3.7 GHz, but it can be overclocked to run up to 5.2 GHz if needed, thanks to its 10-core, 20-thread design. So yeah, it’s a pretty good CPU to have if price isn’t an issue.

Microphone: Audio-Technica ATBP40

Although Tim no longer uses his Audio-Technica headset and he doesn’t appear to be sponsored by the company anymore, he continues to use one of the brand’s top-tier hypercardioid dynamic microphones. Featuring an XLR output, if you intend on using this microphone for your personal setup, you might want to invest in a mixer to go with it. 

Webcam: Panasonic LUMIX G7

Tim has joked with his chat in the past about how he’s a “cam girl.” And if that’s truly what he’s going for, he certainly hasn’t gone cheap in the webcam department. Rocking a Panasonic LUMIX, Tim’s streaming camera isn’t your typical webcam. In fact, it’s a full-blown digital camera with 4k capability that will cost you about three to four times more than your traditional cam.

Much like his microphone, Tim regularly tells his viewers that his webcam is significantly more expensive than the average person might want to use to start up a stream. Admitting his fortune, he adds that when he started his stream, the camera he used was more along the lines of what you’d envision when talking about a generic webcam.
