The mouse is highly customizable as well, and I love that you can change the weight of it, because I like my mouse very heavy, and also you can change the sensitivity with the press of one button, which is convenient depending on what you are doing.

The G11 keyboard is like 60 bucks (I got it for 43), and the G5 mouse is 50 bucks (I got it for 40). They go on sale often on newegg, so keep an eye out. I don't regret buying either in the least bit.
Can you change the G5 skin? And how heavy are the weights? Are they as heavy as batteries, because a I like the the weight of my logitech wireless 1100 DPI egronomic nameless mouse, but I hate the egronomic shape..

Yeah the G5 sounds like a really good mouse. I think I will get that and an inexpensive backlit gaming keyboard.

You could also check out the "Reclusa" by Microsoft/Razer, while not a "serious" gaming keyboard I guess, I seems nice and is a bit cheaper usually... G5 is great as well, can't go wrong with it.
