OP Please pardon the following expression as it is not directed towards you.

De-Zant, showing a little kid a package of cookies and then giving them a box of crackers does nothing but cause a problem! LOL I say if the guy has a $60 budget then try to suggest the best "Gaming" keyboard that he can get for that amount. Not all of us, including myself, can afford to purchase the high end products it seems that 90% of this forum seems to have. Some of us do have a strict budget that we have to stick to and it sometimes takes much longer to get money together for the stuff that we actually want that sometimes we have to get what we can, while we can.
So lets try to be helpful and find a keyboard and mouse within his budget that is of good quality rather than "teasing" him with the eye candy that we all wish we could afford.

You do not understand, lol

I was saying that it's useless even getting a gaming keyboard unless it's mechanical, which is not a suggestion for getting a mechanical keyboard, but a suggestion for keep using a 5 dollar logitech keyboard, since it's not going to be any worse than most gaming keyboards.

That's it. Get it now?

If you really want a good keyboard, look into mechanical ones, like the razer blackwidow or the steelseries 6gv2. The blackwidoe clicks when you press a key.

If you don't want to pay the price for a mechanical, you can just go ahead and buy the cheapest random logitech you can find, it's not gonna matter anyways. The only benefit of gaming keyboards is the backlight.

Though, I must say the sidewinder x4 is one of the best feeling rubber dome keyboards I have ever tried.
I've heard amazing things about the sidewinder, also any old keyboard isn't true, if it's only rated for 2KRO you may run in to some problems in game.

The sidewinder x4 feels somewhat better than most rubber domes. It's the only rbuber dome I would ever recommend aside from 5 dollar dells.

And it hasn't got too many blocked key issues.

But really, it's still at least somewhat of a waste of money IMO. But if you want backlight, and you have a budget, that's the one I woudl recommend.

The x4 is probably going to be the best choice at your budget point. I have a Razer Lycosa, but alot of people will tell you to avoid it. I have no issue with it myself.(other than the Blue LEDs) and for a Mouse the Logitech G500 or G9X are both excellent choices.

I would suggest the sidewinder x4 as it has full nrko meaning that you can press all the keys at once, it backlighted and its actually quite good quality

As for gaming mice it depends on the way you hold the mouse. I been through 24gaming mice

palm grip and larger hands I would go for the mionix naos 3200 or razer deathadder

if you use clawgrip or fingertip and have smaller hands I would definately go for the cm storm spawn, its pretty much flawless with the new firmware

My 2 cents.

Go for cheap keyboards, unless you need those fancy buttons or backlighting. Apart from those "gaming keyboards" are prety much the same as the vanilla keyboards. For budget keyboards, Logitech > Microsoft. IME the Microsoft ones development friction more than the Logitech as they age.

As for mouse, stick with something Logitech in your comfortable price bracket as well. I used Microsoft Sidewinder X5 for quite a while on my gaming rig, that is probably the most comfortable mouse out there. Just that on my copy the left click needed to be "warmed up" prior to use for it to register, probably an isolated case.

I "upgraded" to a Razer Lachesis 5600, within weeks I bought myself a Logitech G700, the Lachesis gotta be the most uncomfortable mouse I have used. The Razer looks cool with the fancy lighting but it doesn't feel like it is a $100 mouse to me. G700 feels solid and doesn't disappoint, so is my Logitech Revolution MX. Ergonomic is definitely much better.

It may sound like I am Logitech fanboy. Currently I have 10 mice in my possession (only 3 are Logitech). I always wanted to try something else, but most of the time I was met with disappointment in one way or another (no more Microsoft (except Sidewinder) or Razer for me). I have to admit that they are the largest mouse manufacturer for good reason.

Alright afrer all the responses the majority is going for logitech mice. I have one and it never disappointed me. Therefore I will select a logitech for mice. As for the keyboard, i am definitely leaning on the sidewinder, if I change my mind ill just get a cheap keyboard
