Keyboard, speaker, mouse question

Should a keyboard, speaker, or mouse that is listed as compatible with 2000/xp/vista BUT doesnt say window7 be compatible with a window 7? such as this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823109077&Tpk=microsoft%20wired%20keyboard%20600

im asking this because if my currect keyboard, etc isnt compatible with my new build I will have to spend another 60$ on those things -.-

  1. Really shouldn't be an issue my kb from 1999 works on my Win7 build just fine.
    Btw it's a MS Custom Comfort Curve 2000.

  2. Should work with Windows 7 without any problems since none of my mouse says that it is compatible with Windows 7 but it works anyway
  3. keyboards, mice and speakers should work with windows 7. in fact i had a keyboard from 1985 hooked up to my pc and it worked fine! the only thing which might not work is any special software which was included. typically if there is a driver update required you could get it from the manufacturers website. if there are no updated drivers available, and the included drivers will not work then you could just go without them and use the windows-standard drivers. the only things which wouldnt work are any special multimedia keys on keyboards and extra buttons on mice. other than that, usually things work ok.

    if you already have the keyboard, mouse and speakers in your possession (from an existing build) there is no harm in connecting them up to your new pc. if they work they work, if they don't you could get newer ones with no harm done. although, they should work.
