I haven't tried those but I did order a Razer Copperhead mouse and I didn't like it, it didn't feel comfortable and wasn't very ergonomically designed. I Can recommend a Logitech
MX518 or a Logitech G5, I have had both and liked them a lot. As for the Keyboard, I Use a Belkin N52TE game pad instead because it's much more comfortable than a keyboard and the buttons are setup for gaming, whether it be FPS, MMO or anything else. Once I tried the game pad, I don't even want to play if I can't use it.

Go with XFX, double lifetime warranty.

I don't really like the lycosa to be honest. It just looked cool, doesn't do much to help in gaming or just regular typing.

The Imperator is Razer's right-handed ergonomic mouse. It should be an awesome mouse at 5600DPI. I know I love my Lachesis.

The Tarantula was the best keyboard Razer put out, but it seems to have vanished from the market. I'm using a Saitek Eclipse just because it is backlit. I actually preferred the MicroSoft Curve (I think that's what is it called).

Logitech g15's are pretty good, lots of travel in the keys, LCD screen, way more macro buttons then you'd ever need. Though I prefer the logitech illuminated, just so much nicer to type on.

I use the older Logitech G11 that I picked up on ebay new pretty cheap. Love the illuminated keyboard but it is too wide for my pullout keyboard tray on my desk. I have to turn it sideways to close the tray. Take the width of the keyboard into concideration if you have the same situation as mine.

Both of them will perform exactly the same pretty much. The sapphire may have a slightly better cooler, but it probably costs more too. The temperature difference is also no more then a few degrees most likely.
