FPS + General Use Mouse (and keyboard) for sub-$200 AUD

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
I've allocated AUD $200 for myself to spend on a decent keyboard and mouse. I have a keyboard and mouse tray which measures 60cm across, so I'm looking to keep around 20cm for the mouse. I'm looking for mouse suggestions in terms of for FPS + general use (keyboard + mouse = <$200). I'm right-handed and not really a fan of a huge amount of buttons on my mouse.

Also, I need a mechanical keyboard less than around 40cm in length and 5.5cm in height. I'd like media controls. My 'colour scheme' is green however black/neutral is fine. Looking to keep both mouse + keyboard under $200.

Thanks!

For the keyboard I would recommend one of these:

You can pick the keys of your choice though, my favorites are the browns. They are the lightest cherries.

For the mouse, how about this:

It's what I have and it's very good, comfortable, easy to use and accurate.

Hi,
Not really a fan of the Leopold series, although I have heard they are good, their visuals don't appeal to me. (PLUS 30/4!)

I like the mouse however, with the buttons on the left and the right-handed design + the colours lol. I may end up getting that.

It is a very nice mouse! But how about the CM Storm keyboards? http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=113_1294&products_id=18622
Unfortunately there isn't much variety in the style of mechanical keyboards.

Personally I think the stabilizers on Leopold is rubbish for gaming, I returned mine and got a CM quick fire instead (which has media keys), my personal preference is the red switch.

There are better mice out there then the roccat kone +, but then picking a mouse is much more personal preference then a keyboard.

I have to agree about that point with the mice. This is by far the best mouse I have used in quite a while, but that's just me. See if you can try out a few mice first if at all possible.

I don't know about you guys, but the logos and symbols on the CM quick fire keyboard look very amateurish...I mean what is that windows key?


...not really sure where I can test gaming mice...

Why does it matter what it looks like? You should be looking at your computer screen not your keyboard and If it really bothers you that much you can always buy different keycaps, the quickfire is a great board for the price and I'll be picking one up soon. I don't really know much about mice but I haven't got anything bad to say about my Gigabyte M6900.
