Hello guys
I am looking for a
1 Wireless Mouse
1 Wireless Keyboard
and
1 Wired Mouse
1 Keyboard

Right before some of you guys says wireless peripherals are not meant for gaming
Yes i know for a fact there will be times when wireless gears are used theres a possibility of lag/delay of input.
-I wanted a wireless because 1 i sometimes play on a friggin large screen when im on a lazy mode and i sit pretty far back, 2 i sometimes go play at my friends house with my laptop

- has to be slick/stylish
- has to have an adjustable backlit features (blue would do but i prefer red if no adjustable backlits are available) i don't want to ruin my ambience in my gaming room just because i have rainbow light emitting all throughout my gears
- no issue on budgets
- if you could put 1-3 suggestions that would be great :) 

thanks in advance!
-geo

First of all try Amazon or e-bay or any other online shop for this one because u can see the exact specs and all.
Second,wireless goods are okay only you properly arrange them to,by that I mean if you are using a Wireless Modem+Wireless Music Transciever and Wireless Printer(as I do) and want to add these wireless input(KB-mosue)methods; you have to make sure that they all get different priority channels(this is a must because if it is done improperly you will be wasting hours trying to find out what the problem is,and will evidentally result in non responsive behaviour of gadgets)
And if you don't have them a wireless mouse+keyboard(now available in combo)is a go-go.
And one more thing,my Happauge Music transciever don't work for more than 15 mts while playing Assassin's Creed.

i know i can find stuffs i like but considering the number of brands and keyboards out there i can't really choose. I went here to ask suggestions and opinions because i know some of you guys actually tested some keyboards and suggest it to me. Reviews you might say, yea these days reviews are not worth to read cause i read some companies make dummy accounts just to give good reviews for their products.

Looks like a pro.Go for it though I never used one myself.You can also try the motion sensors they are available for PC platforms and joysticks as well.

That's an OK mouse. I have the Roccat Kone Pure. It's a pretty decent mouse but what I don't like about it is that it's not made for large hands and has terrible driver software. For instance if you speed up or slow down the mouse, there's this weird Christian Bale Batman voice that comes over your speakers that says "3200 DPI". I don't want that blaring over my PC's speakers using this mouse in a work environment.

I have and I'd also heavily recommend the Thermaltake Level 10 mouse: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you have big hands this is the mouse to get, and the buttons and driver software let you customize this thing any way you want.

Roccat ryos MK Pro
http://www.roccat.org/Products/Gaming-Keyboards/ROCCAT-...
or the
Madcat strike 7

I used to use wireless mice almost exclusively until very recently - wired is much better IMO. The bad thing about wireless peripherals is that they eat batteries for breakfast. On my old Logitech setup - which worked great until the mouse died - it got to the point where I would have to change the batteries on this thing every single week. That's why most hardcore gamers say that it's better to get a wired mouse instead of a wireless one if you plan to do any sort of gaming.

That's a pretty decent choice. I'd take a look at this before deciding on a keyboard: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/mechanical-keyboard-razer...
The Gigabyte Osmium looks like a solid keyboard for $100, I'm thinking of getting one for my rig in the next few months.
