    Gaming Mouse + Keyboard

    I'm looking to buy both a gaming mouse and keyboard, they don't have to come in a set or anything and I know people are going to want to say one mouse isn't right for everyone, but I'd like some recommendations i.e. ones with good reviews and reputation. I've heard Razer products have had issues with Vista 64 and another issue with random disconnecting - is this true/have they been fixed?
    Thanks again for your help, everyone

    sidewinder x6 and mx18 here.
    On vista x64 no problems, both products are great but the keyboard really stands out.

    Re: Gaming Mouse + Keyboard

    Is it OK to use a gaming keyboard/mouse on a USB hub i.e. no noticeable lag or anything?
    Thanks

    I use a Logitech G5 mouse and G11 keyboard. The best thing is that both cost me only a total of £40 courtesy of Staples!!
