So here's what I know: wireless is prone to shite signal (experience) which causes awful lag. Wires are less prone to this, as it's a direct connection (current thoughts). I have a Logitech Wave keyboard and mouse combo thing, and I'm looking at this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?gclid=CLTIyL... as a replacement. This would be used for typing and gaming, but mainly gaming. Thoughts? Suggestions? Feel free to let me know. Thanks, and happy typing.

They look pretty cool, and pretty basic for gaming peripherals. The DPI for the mouse it seems only goes up to 2000, which is the sensitivity. If you're looking for more precision and quicker movements look for gaming mice with higher DPI. Now I am a Razer fan-boy as my mouse, keyboard, and mouspad are all Razer products. Now that I have provided that information, I also want to let you know that I have not had any issues what so ever with my Ouroboros (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...) and my Deathstalker (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...).

The Ouroboros can go up to 8200 DPI, and I use it on max. This gives very nice and fast movements, but you can also use it at lower sensitivities. The keyboard doesn't really have anything special other than being able to program macro keys with razer's driver software. I would suggest looking at other brands too, like logitech so you can get an idea for what you want, and for the price you want. I can personally atest to using razer products, as my backup perifierals which are the Razer Lachesis mouse, and Lycosa keyboard are still running as out of the box after having used them for gaming and general use purposes for a couple of years now.

Thanks for the detailed response. The DPI isn't of much consequence to me, as I like lower sensitivity. I tend to make more dramatic, sweeping motions with the mouse instinctively, and thus have little use for high sensitivity mice. As to your suggestion that I check out other brands, I have. This is the best priced (and best looking) keyboard I've found yet. While the DeathStalker looks fantastic, it costs more than twice the keyboard/mouse combo. Looking at the Ouroboros, the aesthetics are pleasing, but the price is uncomfortably high. Thanks for all the details you put into that response. As a side note, I forgot to mention I'm on a tight budget, so price should be a consideration for overall value.

Budget is always important for computer related expenditures! :p  If you're on a tight budget, then I would say go for it if you're not looking for something fancy. Hope they work out well for you! :)
