Ok let me put it this way:
I have 1500, need the rest for monitor/keyboard/mouse/mousepad/speakers (i dont mind cheaping out on the speakers, sound is sound to me.) so with this, lets say my monitor is 150. 1200 + 150 = 1350. mouse = 50. =1400. keyboard - 50. 1450. mousepag, 20 - 1470 speakers, 20 = 1490. plus shipping. that leaves me aweful close, man (btw, just found out i gotta get a new desk, so thats for christmas and the rest of this *** is payed for by me and me alone)

First of all, that's a LOT of bumping.

mouse = 50. keyboard - 50.

Second of all, you've got weird priorities. There are basically two categories for mice and keyboards - ~$100 enthusiast keyboards / flashy gaming mice, and ~$20 solid performance but no fancy features. Spending about 50 on either will get you flashy with gimicky features and bad performance.

Personally, I'd take that budget and get a mechanical keyboard - it makes a big difference in games and in typing. Then I'd get a decent 5-button mouse. I personally like the Intellimouse Explorer and the Comfort 6000.

You could do the reverse, and a lot of people do so, but honestly? The performance of a gaming mouse, aside from a few features, will be no better than a decent mouse. You're never going to use more than 2000 MAX dpi in a game - it's a sales gimmick.
