I currently have a very crappy keyboard & mice (the MK320). For gaming, this set is just out of the league, so I am considering to buy a new keybaord & mouse just for gaming. This is the lists of products I have currently have in mind:
1. RAZER Lycosa (My current favorite)
2. RAZER Arctosa (ok)
3. Cyborg V.7 Gaming keyboard (ok)
I am not much concerned about my keyboard selection (RAZER Lycosa), after all it's made by RAZER. Arctosa is good, but its actual functionality does not fullfill its price. The V.7 from Cyborg I am not sure about. Cyborg is a company I haven't heard much about, so I am open to all suggestions. For mouse, the Cyborg R.A.T. 7 is my favorite because of its price (79.99). For this price, RAZER offers mouse that have much less functions. However, I am concerned with the quality of this R.A.T., after all I need this mouse to last at least 2 years for me. The RAZER Mamba is great, but I am just afraid that the battery will die very soon. If thats so, I will go with the R.A.T. or G9x. I don't really need the wireless for Mamba. But, the looks of the mouse matters alot to me. All the RAZER mouse look like crap, except for this. The Logitech G9x is not very good looking, but I know it provides great comfort for gaming. I AM OPEN TO ALL SUGGESTIONS, IF U HAV A BETTER SUGGESTION FOR OTHER MOUSE FEEL FREE TO SAY IT, IT WILL REALLY HELP, THANKS.
P.S. For me keyboards are not my concerns, so I just need a gaming keyboard below $80. Mouse, I want it to be below $90. That's all.
Pretty much any keyboard and mouse combination can work for gaming, it all comes down to what fits you best. You might want to check them out in a local shop before purchasing.
I haven't used one but the razer keyboards look to be as well built as their mice, though they do look like they have the same rubberlike coating which I am unsure if it will wear well.
The battery in my last logitech wireless mouse started to die after about 3-4 years - the mamba will most likely be the same. I would go with the wired option (deathadder) instead. This is both $50 cheaper and it is quite a nice mouse.
