Thank you all very much for helping a noob.. All my parts showed up and now I just need the following:

Speakers/Headset
Keyboard
Mouse

I need stuff that functions but isn't expensive.. I would like speakers as well as a headset with an attached microphone. Also need a keyboard and mouse that does well for games but nothing crazy expensive! I spent 1300 so far on a 1k budget lol!

Prefer Newegg/Best Buy/Wal-mart

Headset:
$99 Corsair HS1 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Mouse:
$51 Logitech G500 10 Buttons - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Now, the mouse ive listed is quite a specific style, it fits into the palm of your hand, some people prefer mice that are much flatter to the desk (RAZER mice in particular).
$70 RAZER Lachesis Black 9 Buttons http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Speakers:
$35 Logitech Z313 25 w 2.1 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
or
$88 Logitech Z506 75 watts RMS 5.1 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Keyboard:
$80 Logitech G510 Black 18 Function Keys - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$40 RAZER Arctosa Silver - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

As you can probably tell im a big fan of Logitech. They really do make amazing quality products though. Most of these peripheral devices should be down to your own personal preference however, so dont take the parts i suggested as "the best", just as an idea for you :)

Thanks for the good list! The speakers @ $35 seem to be pretty reasonable for me. The others though scare me.. I don't think I can spend 80 bucks on a keyboard or 100 dollar headset.... I usually end up breaking those if you know what I mean lol! I still have to buy a desk and a chair.. oh my I'm going to be a broke ass.

My old computer has I think a 9.99 mouse and a 11.99 keyboard and I don't think I really ever had a problem with them... Some mice I have had in the past spin me around like crazy tho.. Don't know if it is b/c it was a laser and not an optical or vice versa.. I heard one is better than the other.

New revised list :)  If its still over-budget let me know and ill take another look :)  Keyboard is probably the cheapest, good quality "gaming keyboard" but mouse and headset could possibly go a little cheaper if required.

Mouse:
$20 GIGABYTE GM-M6880 Metal Black
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Keyboard:
$50 Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Keyboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Speakers:
$34 Logitech Z313 2.1
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Headset:
$34 Creative Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Alpha USB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

or

$41 Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

^^ Used to have that Fatal1ty headset myself :)  It was pretty good. Nice audio quality, and really comfortable.
^^ Also still own the old version of the Logitech speakers i listed, again really nice quality, ive had them for about 3-4 years+.

Thanks for the updated list Adrian. I am most focus around FPS. I never actually owned a 'gaming' keyboard and/or mouse. Are they way more helpful? It looks like that microsoft board has extra keys on the left of WASD what other benefits do they offer?

The 4 keyboard buttons:
Programmable macro keys
Switch among three banks of six programmable macro keys to assign up to 18 macros per profile.
In-game Macro Record button
Record any sequence of keystrokes—even standard chat messages. Macros are stored on your hard drive and can be easily shared.
Automatic macro repetition
Set your macros to repeat.
Backlit keys
Adjust key-legend backlighting with three illumination levels plus “off.”
Media keys
Play/Pause, Previous Track, Next Track, and Mute.

Keyboard doesn't matter so much tbh, i use a standard Logitch Keyboard myself (wireless). But i used a wired laser gaming mouse which i couldn't live without. The extra build quality and DPI switch is just brilliant. (im using Logitech mx-518) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... The reviews on NewEgg speak for themselves :)

The Logitech G510 / G500 combo is my 1st choice where budget ($130) allows. For the budget conscious, The MX-518 was a killer choice but not on newegg so might have been dropped. The G300 is in a similar price range at $40. The Logitech 920-000914 is about as cheap as I'm willing to go.

If my MX-518 ever dies, I wouldn't hesitate to buy another of exactly the same :D  Would take it over my brothers RAZER any day :)
