Amazingly I have been through most of the 'other components' section and have come across NO reviews of keyboards or mice. As I buying a custom built p.c. i need to think of all components i need your advice.
Any mice or keyboards you would recommend? Microsoft? Logitech? I will get an optical mouse, but infa-red as well? Worth the price or better to just get a few cable extenders?

Also, cases? Any recommendations, the Antec660 seems popular. As i am spending nearly $1500 on a system there is no reason fall at the last hurdly and get rubbish peripherals for the system.

Cheers
Chris

I really like my Microsoft Natural Keyboard Pro. It is very comfortable. It also have 2 build in USB port which also is very convient.

I find most keyboards to be comfortable and easy to use. The standard keyboard layout lends itself to that. As for mice, nobody makes one large enough to fit my king-sized mits, I have to hold them all with my fingertips. But I've never had a problem with any brand of mouse, short of the things getting dirty.

I like logitech trackballs.

If you are into gaming, the wireless mouses have lag.

How on earth do you manage to solder or change jumpers?

You mean you're supposed to be able to grab jumpers with your finger? Geeze, I use a pair of longnose pliers.

Lesson for today: What most people call Needle Nose plier are ACTUALLY long nose pliers. True needle nose pliers have the nose machined down to about 1/2 the thickness of the standard long nose pliers most people are familiar with.

I use my grubby, sweaty mits and hope that it earths as it should. :lol: 

Would use a wrist strap too, but it's at the bottom of a box.
