Gaming keyboad combos

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am looking into getting a gaming keyboard and mouse. Would like to have both included in the price. My budget is around 75.00 bucks. I know that is not much, since I have seen how much some of these keyboards and mice cost. If possible like to have it to be wireless unless they are cabled and have long cables and can be used on windows 7 HPre and are also USB 3.0 ready. So if anyone has any suggestions, thank you for all your replies and feedback. Hoping to hear from the owners of such keyboards and mouse combos

Couple points:

USB 3 doesn't really matter for mouse/keyboard. USB3 doesn't really add anything over USB2 other than bandwidth, which is already more than enough with USB2.

If you need long cables, you can always buy USB cable extenders.

For gaming keyboards, you have two options. Either full gaming keyboards (like a mechanical keyboard, etc.) or a dedicated game-pad device, like G13 or Nostromo.

At $75, I don't really think you can get both a good gaming mouse and keyboard. For that money, I'd recommend focusing on a good mouse, like the G400 or G500. If you want wireless, especially for a gaming setup where latency is critical, you're going to spend more than $75 on each component.

Thanks to all that reply

Then I'd recommend the G700 and XArmor U9W. There really isn't any good wireless gaming keyboard from Logitech.

If you are going wired, there are now a whole ton of options. However, any advice I'd give on wired peripherals has been repeated a thousand fold over on the internet and in the forum. The best bet is to do search here and on Google, focusing on reviews/discussion in the past 6-12 months.
