Gaming mouse and keyboard


So for mouse I am thinking Razer Copperhead with Razer Mantis Pad.
Any recommendations on keyboard, and why? I used to game on old keyboard from 486 days. I tried new ones and I found keys to be mushy, and not very responsive.

Gaming, are we?

Just don't get anything wireless that sucks in performance.
For a keyboard get anything that makes yourself comfortable, for the mouse I could recommend you a fine laser mouse, those things rock and are noticeable more responsible than the optical mice.

Here are, my current keyboard and my current mouse (yes, they are micro$oft products and yes, they work better under Slackware than windoze)

You might want to consider some outside-the-box options. I used to really like my madcatz pather xl, but they had a tendency to break and that company stopped making PC products.

I've found that, extra buttons and such aside, the best keyboard for typing is the best keyboard for gaming, whether you like a softer keyboard or a clicky relic like the model m.
I have a logitech G5, and an xtrac hybrid pad. it's all a matter of preference, but if you haven't ordered yet I recommend you take a look at the pad, it's one of the slickest in existence.

Agreed, stay away from wireless - especially for gaming. The Logitech lazer mice are fantastic.

I agree about keyboard feel. I've got an old keyboard from a mid-90's HP Kayak and I've never found better - it keeps going from machine to machine with me. Like your favorite pair of jeans.

LOL
I couldn't have said it better.
But keyboards, mice and jeans, wear out over time and need to be replaced, like anything else in this life
