USB keyboards & mice for gaming?

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

  1. Never had any problems like that with my USB mice or keyboard (On any of my machines).

    What kind of games you playing?

  2. 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)

  3. Have you tried a different mouse and keyboard? Maybe yours have gone bad.

    Old System:Packard Bell Legend 3550,200 mhz cpu,72mb ram,8mb video,2gb hdd.
    NEW System:ECS N2U400-A,512 mb ram,AMD Athlon 2500+, 64 mb video, SOUND, on board lan, USB Ports, 120 Gb HDD
  4. 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?
