Most "gaming keyboards" only allow macro buttons which depending one what games you play can be kinda useless...I play mostly RTS and wouldn't wanna be reaching over to touch some keys for an item, but if I played wow it could be a life saver

I use a standard keyboard for everything and still manage to win tournies n stuff

Now a mouse...that's a different story

man, i used to play FEAR combat alot and kicked some ***, often being 1st/2nd in nearly every server i joined. then i sold my computer, and packed my good my house and keyboard away while i used my old hp. talking about the scores i had with the old hp optical make me feel suicidal.

I definitely reccomend Razer mice, but they have BAD support.

I use the Razer Diamondback 3G, I have a cheap budget!

You know when you game, you press the WASD key, and some tie crouch at the same time? sometimes you can't do that with a regular kyboar, plus a gaming keyboard feels better to press on. Did you go to a store, yet?

Just got a new ocz keyboard yesterday and i love it.

NCIX.com - Buy OCZ Alchemy USB2.0 Keyboard W/ 10 Macro Keys * 1 Year MFR Warranty * - OALKBELXUS In Canada.

Kind of a knock off from the Razer Tarantula but it suits me nicely

FYI there is no way I would go back to standard keyboard and mouse, I love my G15 and Razer combo
You use a Logitech G15 and a Razer mouse?....thats blasphemy...they must hate eachother and hate you for putting them side by side :P
