Maybe this is a stupid question but using USB keyboards & mice for gaming a good idea? I ask cause I'm havin' problems with 'stalls' on both the mouse & keyboard playing games, that is to say movments of the mouse/key presses don't register. And yes I have a dedicated gaming hardware profile

FYI system specs -
MSI nForce 420 PRO
XP 2000+
1GB PC2100
Radeon 9600 PRO 128MB
Adaptec 19160 SCSI
2x Seagate Savvio 36GB
LG 4020B DVD Writer
Pioneer DVD-106

Yes it's very odd and something I totally wasn't expecting at all and as I play very few games thought it might just be that. However it first came to light with TOCA RD, missed gears/breaking points/turn in, but now I think I'm seeing it in SimCity & SoF II (and other graphics card giveaway games)

I've had that with my wireless mouse. I think somehow the wireless transmission got screwed. Had to buy a new mouse (optical USB) and it works like a charm again. Is your stuf wireless?
