Mouse purchase advice: I followed the sticky guide

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all. I’ve decided to try my hand at a gaming mouse and keyboard, however, like gpus, MBs, cpus, there’s quite a few choices. So far I’ve been using a wireless Xbox 360 controller, but find that I can’t get a precise bead on the enemies like when I use the mouse – basically, I’ve been using the Xbox controller (to move around) and the mouse (to aim and shoot) to play the games.

Here are some of the specs I’d like:

Keyboard: comfortable, backlight since I turn off all lights when I play, useable for everyday computing and preferably black in color (not a whole lot fire, stripes etc. on it)

Note: should I go with a keypad instead of a keyboard

Mouse:

Grip style: palm
Sensitivity:
Additional buttons: Yes, at least 6 programmable ones
Games Play: Crysis2, Crysis, Crysis Warhead, Batman AC
Prediction:
Other: wireless preferred, unless that’s not the preferred method, black
Budget: up to $300 (mice and keyboard)
Mousepad: Yes, style doesn’t matter – 12x12 black
Optical/laser: doesn’t matter
Sensitivity: Medium; adjustable
Prediction: Adjustable

I’ve looked at the Logitech keyboard and mouse and the Razer gaming keyboard and mouse. I’d prefer the palm grip mouse if that helps. I’d like to consider other accessories, such as a mouse pad.

Here are some I’ve been looking at.

Razer keyboards
Razir mice
Logitech keyboard
Logitech mice
Keypads

Thanks...Al

kayboard: Steel Series 7g/6gv2. Best mech keyboards for the price, not back lit but cmon learn to touch type. Upon that note, amazing for typing.
Mouse: Sensei (raw), (4 side buttons) If you meant 6 side buttons, i guess you could look at the mmo mouse.
Mouse pad: Any in the qck series if you want a cloth mat, if you want a hard mat the 9HD

G400 seems to fit your bill for the mouse has a lot of buttons. One of the best sensors to compete with the Deathadder since they took out angle-snapping and the sensitivity/dpi is fully adjustable.
