(Sorry if i posted this on the wrong category)

Hi, i am new to this forum and would like to ask for you guys advice, i have been toying with the idea of getting a mechanical keyboard and gaming mouse for awhile, i did some research on user's feedback and i have come down to these few choices

First of all in general i have conclude that logitech is more favored by users over razer (no biased)

For my mouse i'm thinking about getting Razer Deathadder or maybe a logitech one(which i haven't did much research on yet) please feel free to recommend some model to me.

While for the keyboard, i haven't seen much good comment about it for razer so i figured i'll settle for a logitech one.

I narrowed down to two model due to my budget which is G105 Gaming Keyboard and G100s Gaming Combo

My budget is around 100SGD for each any other recommendations ?

Btw as you can see from the form of currency i am from singapore.

G105 keyboard is very good one - I recommend.

For mouse I recommend Roccat Kone XTD. but if you want to go along with the Logitech keyboard I recommend G400 and G500

@PredatorRules: First of all, thankyou for your advice i appreciate it.

FYI the mouse doesn't have to be the same brand as the keyboard, unless there's like a set bonus where it works better together :D, okay jokes aside i'll check out the Roccat Kone XTD now.

And what about Deathadder ? Apparently its the best mice made by razer.

I have a sharkoon rush for a mouse and its really nice. But i think you have to partner it with a good mouse matt. Im using a razer sphex which is very nice!

@overhead_drums: Exactly how does a mousepad helps you? I have never been a fan of mousepads because i don't take good care of them and the sides ends up torn off (when i got those free ones from buying my computer), my table surface is smooth too so my mouse works just fine. Do you feel like more comfortable with a mouse pad? Also by sharkoon rush do you mean the fireglider ?

Okay, so as we discussed in great lengths in the http://www.gamespot.com/forums/pc-mac-discussion-1000004/gaming-mouse-30970042/#42 thread. I recommend the death adder.

I would recommend you take a look at that thread for information about a gaming mouse.

For a gaming mouse pad: http://www.gamespot.com/forums/pc-mac-discussion-1000004/gaming-mouse-pad-30975384/#13

For a keyboard the g105 is a solid one. I also think Corsairs mechanical keyboards are pretty solid. Research what kind of switch you like and that will narrow down keyboard choices.

If you're going to buy a decent mouse it deserves a pad

#10 Posted by humandesire (11 posts) -

My posting limit was max-ed so i couldn't post anything until now.

After thinking about those suggestion i think i'm most likely to get a

G105 for keyboard

Razer Deathadder for mouse

Razer sphex for mousepad.

@humandesire: I have a glass desk so I need a mouse mat. I have one of the ones you mentioned the Razer sphex that sticks on and is a great surface for the mouse and doesn't slide around or come up at the edges. Just saying some desks don't like mice…or mouses…or meece...

Ohyeah. And it is the fire glider :-)

So before everyone jumps on me this is just my experience. The G105 doesn't or cannot work in bios. Which if you have UEFI maybe that's not a total deal breaker.

+1 to death adder 2013

Razor DeathAdder 3.5G mouse + Razor BlackWidow Ultimate keyboard = pure bliss. Oh I also have the Razor Goliathus mouse pad to compliment the setup. Can't go wrong my friend, you simply can't go wrong.

^^I would still suggest going for the new 4g sensor. I like it a lot.

I currently own the Logitech G500 which I have to say is a pretty nice mouse, 5200 DPI (I think) very comfortable, has grips and weight cartridge and quite cheap. Also has other nifty features. I recommended it highly.
