I just bought this mouse a few days ago:

http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16826104176

And it freakin rocks, nice and cheap and smooth as hell. Don't know why you want USB mouse though they suck, PS/2 is much better and more reliable IMO.

Anyway it's a good damn mouse.....sorry don't have any keyboard suggestions

EDIT: GEH! I hate neweggs new site, took me forever to navigate the stupid thing

Hold on a sec.

((( BARF ))))



But at a price that can't be beaten.

Yeah I said it was a PS/2 mouse which is MUCH better than USB so I don't know why you'd do that barf crap. USBs suck

How is USB better? Real easy to turn the question around.

in my experience with USB mice they feel 'laggy' compared to even this cheap *** $8 mouse that's PS/2 which responds immediately and smoothly to movements. Photoshop when trying to do minute movements is where you notice it the most

Here is my 2 cents: best moust on the market (though not that cheap) is the Razor Diamondback

Keyboard: I have one of these its very nice
