I will be purchasing my i7/285 build soon, but I'm having a hard time deciding on the peripherals. I can't decide on a keyboard/mouse combo or headphones. I'm looking for input.

I will be using the system for both web design and gaming.

This is what I was thinking of, but I'm concerned because it is not designed(or marketed at least) as a gaming set up. Would it work for gaming or am I better off with something else?

Logitech MX 5500 Revolution

Maybe this would be better?
Logitech G15

I would have to find a mouse to go with it though. Maybe this?
Logitech G9

And then we get to headphones.

Leaning towards these after the review that was on here a few days ago:
Logitech G35

A little concerned about usb headphones, but I was just going to use onboard sound anyways.

The other options are these:
RAZER Carcharias

These use a regular jack but are not surround.

Thanks for any input.

If you are a serious gamer stick wth the G15 and G9 (although I prefer the older G5.)

I wouldn't buy USB headphones, but then I'm a X-fi user.

There are better GPU options than a GTX 285. For instance, two GTX 260s. Or a 4870X2.

I got a G9 mouse recently, I really like it now that I have it set up the way I want. The "fat" grip for the G9 is kind of annoying, but the other one that it comes with is really comfortable. I upgraded from a Razer Copperhead which is still a pretty good mouse, but the G9 is way better.
