    (Not sure if this is posted in the right section, feel free to move it to somewhere more fitting if any of you high admons can)


    I've been using the same headset and mouse for almost 3 years now, and they're starting to get worn out, and I wanna get some ideas for good upgrades.

    I'm currently using a Razer Deathadder Respawn and a Steelseries Siberia v2 Headset. I'm looking for recommendations for any good gaming mouse, preferably one suited for MMO's. Not sure if I should just upgrade it with a Deathadder 2013, but idk. Also prefer a headset with a liddle little mic on it. Budget is something under $200 dollurs for each thingie

    Thanks in advance

    Both mouse + headset? Or each independent 200$ ?

    I'd say stick with the Siberia V2, that's probably the best headset you can get right now. For the mouse, i'm not really sure. I know the deathadder is good, but i also enjoy the R.A.T. series by Mad Catz, and for a cheap mouse i like the Gigabyte M6900, which is what i currently have.

    Steelseries rival is what I use now and like.

    Headsets are iffy usually. I say get a good headphone and a modmic. Best of two world that can be used independently.

    As usual ATH M50 (~160$) + ModMic (30$). You get best audio and best mic. You can use the headphone when not in games to do other stuff and still not sacrifice audio. Or use the mic with speakers when need to.

    Also anything beyong 2.0 on headset/headphone is a joke. There's no way to get 5.1,7.1, 23.2 on them, you headphone/headset jack outputs at 2.0 and the USB connection simulates it but the audio is like propagated everywhere which sounds like underwater poop time extravaganza.

      I suggest the Logitech G600 (20 button mouse) or the Naga (19). I have used both, and love both. I currently have the neweset Naga and love it.

      I second @He Who Must Not Be Named's suggestion for ATH M50s (or the X if you want the newest and greatest) and a mod mic. I love mine. Amazing sound, amazing audio. Amazing deal.
