    New keyboard+mouse

    Hey, as the title said I'm looking for a new keyboard and mouse. Any help would be.... helpful

    Gaming keyboard+mouse, not a lot of buttons on the mouse itself.

    What are you looking for? gaming? typing? both?

    do you like ergonomic? do you want a fancy, button-infused mouse?

    Find an old keytronic with mechanical switches and buy microsoft intellimouse explorer 3.0 and you are set. Those razer's and other bullshitproducts aren't any better.

    Yeah, and get one with the AT plug, not PS/2. Nobody likes PS/2.

    If your looking for a mouse for pvp purposes, i cannot live without the razor naga (15 buttons) and personally, keyboard wise, i have the G-15 keyboard, a personal favorite, works nicely, if you want a substitute, id advise going for the razor lycosa, its cheaper, and works pretty nicely

    I've got the Logitech Performance Mouse MX. Works fantastic and is very comfortable. Expensive but worth it, and I got a $25 or so rebate on it when I did buy it.

    As for a keyboard.. I can't help you much, sorry. I use my laptop keyboard :P

    Logitech G9x is really nice mouse. I love the feel for it. I for one, have pretty big hands, and it's pretty comfortable.

    So, my recommendation would be:

    Keyboard -
    -- Steelseries 6Gv2 - Look it up, amazing heavy duty keyboard that will last years of actual physical abuse.
    -- Logitech G-15/G-19 - Pricey, not too badly made. I had the G-15 for a while. The textile coating on the keys are pretty bad.
    -- Logitech G510 - This is the upgrade to the G-15. It's pretty much the same thing but built with better materials.
    -- Thermaltake Challenger - This is a neat board with some macro keys. It also comes with a "finger fan" ...Use it as you will.
    -- Merc Stealth - This is a keyboard with a SOLID side attachment. Not like the Z-Boards and such. It's a hefty and wide board, but it does a good job, All the movement keys are right there next to your hand. Check it out.
    Mouse -
    -- Logitech G9x - This is the one I own, I will tell you right now, it is possibly the best mouse I've owned in my life. Not as many keys as the Naga from Razor, but I can deal without those. I use the G-13 Gamepad for that. :P
    -- Razor Naga - You can never go wrong with the 15 keys. Everyone has different experiences with this one. I had to RMA mine due to the macro keys.
    -- Razor Mamba - This puppy is expensive and pretty good on the hands. It's dual moded. It can be wired or wireless. If you are gaming, Wireless is not an option mainly. So it will be plugged in most the time if that's all your doing.

    I bolded the ones I use. There is also the for a side attachment:

    Logitech G-13 - This is a game pad that has your WASD on it and a bunch of programmable keys all over. There is a joystick on the thumb part, but I don't use it. It has mixed reviews, mostly for the thumb piece. But there is a way to disable it.
