If I did wirless for gaming I would go high end or go home. Razer mamba would be first choice for wirless mouse but for keyboard and mouse a combo might be what you are looking for. Logitech has good stuff in the area. My prefrence is this

Newegg.com - Logitech MX 5500 Revolution Black Bluetooth Cordless Desktop Standard keyboard & Mouse Kit - Keyboards

for a combo pack. 2 really great products IMO. There are cheaper solutions out there if need be.

I go to best buy a lot lol. Looked up the name of the set with MX revolution mouse and found that. Searched the MX5500 at newegg and it popped right up. Ive used both and they are great but I don't like wireless stuff.

When it loads, it says there is nothing in this wishlist, would you be able to list them manually here?
Thanks again

And as I mentioned earlier, I'm sure there are some better parts out there for more bang for your buck. I'm sure someone here could recommend an AMD build that'd be great for this budget..but I'm not familiar with amd builds so I won't even attempt lol
