Hell everyone, looking into getting some new computer accessories. Just wondering what people think are the best things to get, in a reasonable price range that is, no $300+ headsets etc.

I know it is a general questions, so I know I'll probably get general answers, but that's fine! Just looking for peoples opinions on what stuff is good.

Thanks for your input in advance,
Dr. Citrus, F.D.

g19s (Keyboard) for me. with a g700s mouse. or razer oroboros.

headsets have to be with astro first. and razer second.. these are quality brands that do not fail. ( Do not mention turtle beach. you will be shot )

Anything with a corsair badge is also good and within good price ranges.

Just search newegg for corsair. you will not be disappointed. They offer something for every price range..and their quality is unmatched.

Steelseries has some good stuff aswell. Just don't get any Logitech headsets.

Everything else though needs to be Logitech.

I'm running a steel series merc stealth, Razor orb weaver and naga Epic, I just use my PS3 headset :) I have a turtle beach x71 but I hate wires.

I like the extra gaming pad built into the stealth makes it harder to lose my spot on the keyboard. and it's fully programmable. The only problem I've found is the USB doesn't supply it's own power so ya gotta be carefull chaining stuff to it.

The orbweaver, a least for me, had a steep re-learning curve, I kept hittin the wrong buttons till I got used to it.

I ended up receiving some decent accessories as gifts, so I can't complain about free stuff.

1. Headset = Logitech G35 Headset (Not my first choice Psycho, but I have always liked Logitech anyhow.)
2. Keyboard = Razer Anansi Keyboard (Giving me blue screens... gotta fix that.)
3. Mouse = Logitech G100s (Not a big fan of wired mice, but it seems alright.)

If that's the wireless version, enjoy static in your music and everything else.

headset: g35, great bass, pin point sound.  

mouse: logitech mx518, by far one of the best out there..  I use a RAT7 at home and a Logitech Mx518 at my office(my old mouse that i used for gaming.. miss it :( ). The Mx518 is simplistic minimalist design that doesn't quit.  Highly recommend it.  

Keyboard: Old G25 by Logitech,  The new G510 just doesn't work as smooth.

for FPS gaming stay away from the Razors with side buttons, I always switch weapons and stuff cause I grab my mouse (Naga) to hard,

My wife got me a Steel Series Siberia V2 headset it works just fine like 89 bucks at Walmart, my wireless one keeps dying when she's trying to sleep

I'm stuck with the razor for now. It's not bad, although the side buttons are just too far away. The thumb buttons are nice however.

The mouse you use should depend on how you feel comfortable gripping it.

I grip with my fingers, and a very small portion of my palm, claw grip I think, I use a Logitech G9X and generally it's rape train no breaks.

Find a mouse that fits how you naturally grip your mouse, wether that be claw, finger tip, or palm grip.

Admittedly, it's not easy, by you'll know when you find your baby.
