or something like that, managed to get all the parts for about $900 total during the whole black Friday craze and It's all built but I am using a 15 year old $5 keyboard and a mouse that I used on my laptop for a few years with absolutely no speakers/webcam/mic.
Can anyone help me out on these parts? I'm looking for all 5 within about $100 or so.
I only have one ps2 port but plenty of usb's. My main use for the computer will be gaming and I am hoping to find a good mouse with buttons and such, but it's not that important to me. Unless I have been looking the wrong places, any keyboard with extra features is overpriced so I guess I just want one that doesn't look dumb. Those buttons with the volume control would be nice. I will mainly be using headphones so the speakers aren't terribly important either (I don't even have a sound card). The mic and webcam are very important, I am on Skype 24/7 but I have never searched for these parts as there usually built in so I don't know what to look for in terms of specs vs. price.

Well, I can only recommend what I have I guess. The Logitech K800 keyboard is definitely one I would recommend. Its just a really basic keyboard really, but its rechargeable, has lights, and types well. Its nothing fancy, but just enough light to see it. On the downside, its a tad expensive.

I would also recommend a Razer Deathadder mouse. Its really, again, just a regular mouse if you turn the lights off, but it is really comfortable and nice if you have to work (or play) on your computer for hours.
