Don't think so. It says USB port in requirements. So I guess USB1.1 will do fine.

the mouse looks pimp but its pretty small so u'll be moving it around with ur fingers the whole time. the logtech mx518 is big and fits the hand very well. id switch the mice...
and those, im pretty sure, will come with a usb>PS2 adapter so the usb 1.1 isnt a problem

Note that the G15 keyboard is HUGE compared to normal keyboards so have enough space

The Razer is tiny. I recommend getting a Logitech G5. It's bigger and feels sturdier.

I bought a diamondback(salamander red?) over the weekend, sort of didn't like the shape after using it, so I took it back and picked up a G5 for 10 bucks more.

Other than that, it's a nice mouse, though. It has 2 buttons on each side that you can program to do stuff - I really couldn't be assed to click the right ones with my pinky, however.

I'd consider going with an MX518(It costs less, anyway) unless you're left handed or something.
