Can't decide on a Chair for excellent back comfort

Hello, I spend a lot of my days and time sitting on in my chair, my current one has the cushion which is so worn out I feel the metal underneath, I was wanting to get the https://thunderx3.com/tgc22/ but I can't find it anywhere to buy, Also black and red colour is a bonus ? I have tried going around my small town to all the shops but most of them don't specialize in gaming or office chairs in such, it is very limited.

  1. I am 6ft 2" tall and quite slim so something not super wide.
  2. I spend a lot of time at my computer so I need something durable and comfortable.
  3. I want a fairly adjustable one with all the usual tilts and raise abilities etc.
  4. Want either a gaming chair or an office chair as long as it has the comfort and adjustable features, I do prefer gaming chairs for the looks and colour (Red is a bonus :P)
  5. I want something under $500 NZD which is around $342 USD
  6. Also must have the lumbar pillow for my scoliosis.
  7. All suggestions are welcome!

This is the chair I have had for years, it was good but it didn't hug me properly in terms of my body shape if you know what I mean.

Best way to find the perfect one for you is to go to a store carrying them and trying them out. If you're buying online, check out reviews. Tech Deals / Rogue did one on youtube about Autofull chairs.

Spend the money on a good ergonomic chair. Not a gaming one. Especially if you have back problems.

Yeah as I said in my post there are only a couple of stores that sell them and in which don't have many available, only option is online.

Agree to the comments above, forget about "GaYming" chair.
IKEA Markus has good reviews, but personally i would probs get the IKEA Volmar ( looks cool and comfy ).

Yeah picking a chair is a bit harder than picking a monitor, you really need to be there and compare them, but with crap all around town to try, only option is online so now I am looking around everywhere for a chair and reviews.

Can't say about IKEA ones exactly, but in general mesh chairs are the best ones you can buy ( also healthiest ). If you look at various ergonomics chairs above 1000$ you can see that almost all of them are mesh chairs.  
Good other brands: Ergohuman, Herman Miller

I'm quite happy with the maxnomic chair I bought two years ago. 
I'm 6ft and also slim. I also had back problems, but honestly the only way to solve them - especially if your sitting most of your day - is a bit of back exercises and frequent breaks from sitting. An ergonomic chair wont fix your back problems.

The maxnomic chair is fairly adjustable, and pretty comfortable.Took me a while getting used to, since my prior chair was very soft. 
But what stood out to me was the exceptional support from maxnomic. I had a few issues a couple of months after I bought the chair. After a few recommendations from the support didnt solve the issue, they send me a replacement for the complete mechanics (base, casters, tilt-mechanism) - no questions asked. 
All the conversations with the support was very friendly and I got the impression they really cared. 
They even contacted me a couple of weeks later and asked if everything was working as it should.
