Choosing the right keyboard/mouse for gaming

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
It's time for me to get something that will have better macro capabilities since I'm atm using Saitek keyboard and Ace Edge3200 mouse which don't really have many extra buttons.

I decided between mechanical setup vs normal.
Mechanical: Razer BlackWidow + Razer Naga Hex
Normal: Logitech G110 + Razer Naga Molten Edition
Other: Logitech G13 + Razer Naga Hex or ME.

I have never owned or tried a mechanical keyboard or mouse and I have no idea how I will react to it, but I hear mostly good things about them (the only downsides being loud clicks and weight).
Naga Hex is a new Razer mouse with mechanical buttons on the side, BlackWidow is a mechanical keyboard. I saw some reviews of the keyboard and honestly I'm not a big fan of loud clicks, although I have no issues against it either. I know there's a "stealth" version but it's unavailable in Sweden (and it's gonna cost a crapload if I order it from somewhere else).
Also, as a third option (instead of a keyboard), there's a Logitech thingy called G13 which is basically a mini keyboard with only the buttons we need for gaming. Never tried that either but I'm willing to try something new. Not sure if I want to spend a crapload of money that I won't like. Unfortunately I have to travel quite a bit if I want to try something, since there are no big shops around here. And I prefer to order stuff over the net since it's so much easier to find.

Any suggestions what I should go for?

Edit: I rarely play FPS games, I'm mostly MOBA (Dota 2 like games), RTS & RPG/MMORPG/Action RPG gamer.

I was in the situation as your a few months ago and went with the Logitech G110 and love it. The razer's look awesome but the G110 was just so easy to use and seemed more popular at the time. I would deff recommend the G110.
