This is the keyboard and mouse I have at the moment.

My mouse is a little different to that one though.

I find it pretty good for games. But I don't have anything to compare it too, since I've never used a proper gaming mouse before.

go for the sound card and speakers, frankly i couldn't give a stuff about my keyboard and speakers, i use a generic mouse and keyboard, works fine for me, in the end i'm much more happy with my creative inspire 2.1 speakers and my audigy 2

get the soundcard and speakers. personally if i were getting a sound card though i wouldn't settle for anything less than an X-FI. Trifid have you heard of volume control? i would also vote on getting an opteron 165/170

Where is the fun in that?? I have my sound system at 35 out of 80 on the amp and 1/3 of the sub power. I like my music loud though.

Oh ok then. I'm actually looking at my budget now.

If I downgrad me ram from some G.Skill Extreme Series to some G.Skill Value Series ram, I'll be able to get a new keyboard and mouse. Worth it?

EDIT: Here's a thread that shows what ram I'm lookin at getting.
