How important would you say a nice keyboard/mouse are? - Page 4

post #31 of 42
10 and 10.

I work at a software company as an application developer. I don't type properly unless it's on my keyboard (Razer Blackwidow for now) and I don't like using any other mouse that isn't one of the mice I own (Logitech MX518).

I care less about the CPU, HDD and other stuff because work is work and I get paid. Comfort does matter when I work. Same applies to my computer at home but other things get more priority.

I use the pen. It's far more accurate, responsive, and precise than touch.
That's what I figured, but wasn't sure how natural using the pen would be. I may indeed give it a try.

Keyboard 4
Mouse 8

That been said there are some nice keyboards you can get for peanuts. At home I have logitech 110g fancy bling bling keyboard but I could totally get bye with the el chepo HP keyboard I'm typing on now (to be honest the HP has better typing feel). As for the mouse high dpi is not an absolute must but the shape needs to bee right and above all it needs to glide well.

in home use it is

keyboard 5
mouse 9

since backlight is very important for me and therefore it has to be 100% operational and my deathadder has never let me down and is the best suited mouse for me by far compared to everything I've used.

in the office it´s just 1 and 1 (as long as it works)

A nice mouse is the absolute cornerstone of the PC gaming world.. All the Graphics power in the world cant help you if your puny DPI mouse cant cascade smoothly across the screen... For that reason, I have to award the mouse a 10 on the importance scale..

In the way of a nice keyboard.. I feel like all QWERTY keyboard are the same and therefor they makes no difference at all..

However..........

Getting a nice gamepad (like the one I use pictured below) all set up to your liking and macro'd out can also be a game changer.. So I give "Keys" an importance rating of 6..


Thanx for reading

^That isn't exactly true

Not all game genres require a good mouse. Only FPS / RTS and the likes.

Keyboards DO make a difference. At least, mechanical ones. Not the "GAMING!!!11!!" ones.

And you don't need more than 800DPI to smoothly travel across 1920x1080. You only need higher for higher resolutions. And on that issue, if FPS games are what we talk about, the display makes just as much of a difference as a mouse does.



Not to mention gaming wasn't the only factor described in the OP
