When it comes to having that slight edge over everyone else in your favorite game, the perfect combination of mouse and keyboard may save your life. Your mouse and keyboard are your weapons and every PC gamer understands just how important it is to have the perfect fit. Everything from first person shooters to MMOs will be better with the mouse and keyboard combination that feels designed specifically for you.
No matter what set up you have or what type of games you enjoy playing, at least one of these ten combinations is likely to give you that extra touch when it’s absolutely necessary. Plus, they’ll make your set up look even cooler than it already does.
10. Havit Mechanical Keyboard and Mouse Combo
With 14 backlit modes on the keyboard and 7 color effects on the mouse, it may be easy to overlook this combination as something that just looks nice. For sure, it will create some cool atmospheres to your gaming experience, but it offers so much more than the color options. This combo can pack a serious performance punch as well.
All of the 104 keys have individual switches and have a floating key design which gives it amazing trigger sensitivity. The mouse is really easy to program between 6 different DPI levels which makes it adjustable for almost any gaming scenario you could find yourself in.
The keyboard is where this combo shines. The mouse is good, but not great. It isn’t the best for games that involve mouse buttons and ghosting. But for the price and the abilities of the keyboard, it’s almost like you’re getting the mouse thrown in for free.
The wrist rest that comes with the keyboard may not be the most comfortable thing to use, but it is detachable if you find one that might work better. The amount of customizations available for this combo as well as the solid performance for relatively cheap makes this combination an easy recommendation.
9. Soke-Six Wireless Combo
The Soke-Six combo is completely wireless, which is either a major advantage or disadvantage depending on what you generally prefer. However, both the keyboard and the mouse share one convenient receiver. Backside drain holes make the keyboard mostly water and spill proof. A major benefit of this combo is how nice and comfortable it is to use. The keyboard is very compact, meaning it will fit any set up well.
Some of the material, especially for the mouse, can feel a bit cheap, but at a lower cost point, you can’t really beat the performance. Of course, since it is wireless, this combo could burn through batteries depending on how often you use it.
The compact size, comfortable feel, and lower price point make this a good choice for newer gamers or people who are just starting to get serious about their set up.
8. Redragon S101 Wired
If wireless isn’t your thing, but you’re still looking for a lower-cost introduction to mouse and keyboard combinations, and one that looks fantastic, try out the Redragon S101 combo. With 7 different RGB light modes and 4 backlight brightness levels, the keyboard can create an atmosphere to keep you gaming for hours. And that won’t be a problem with the built-in, super comfortable wrist rest. The keyboard has also been designed to withstand most major spills.
The mouse is incredibly versatile with 4 different DPI settings, a weight tuning set, and 6 buttons, five of which are programmable, as well as specific designs for accuracy and durability, it could fit well with any set up. The mouse feels phenomenal and is built to last.
Probably the biggest issue with this combination is the construction of the keyboard which can feel a bit thin and flexible. Some may like that, but it could be a concern for others. However, the mouse alone would make this combination worth the money.
7. Redragon K552-BB
Staying in the Redragon family, the K552-BB is a slight upgrade from the S101. There aren’t as many customizable color options with this keyboard, it has 10 LED backlight levels, but they’re all red, so if that is something that is important to you, maybe stick with the S101. In almost every other way, this combo is an improvement on the S101. This keyboard is mechanical, meaning you have that nice, audible click, medium resistance, and precise tactile feedback for greater accuracy. The keyboard is also highly customizable with interchangeable WASD and ARROW keys.
Like the S101, the mouse is great. It is comfortable, has all of the customizable buttons you could want, and looks really cool paired with the keyboard. It is super light and comes with a changeable DPI and breathing effect.
If changing colors isn’t as important to you, this combination is an improvement over the previous one. The Redragon mouse is always great and the keyboard feels, sounds, and looks great.
Corsair is such a trusted and known name within PC gaming circles, so you can be sure that they offer some solid and reliable combos. Of the options that Corsair has, this one is probably the best. There are at least 10 preconfigured vivid light modes that allow you to choose the lighting affects you most prefer in your gaming atmosphere. The keys are largely customizable with 6 programmable macro keys and key maps. The wrist rest is highly comfortable, but also detachable if it’s not your thing. The 6000 DPI mouse sensor has advanced tracking for high accuracy and performance.
The keyboard doesn’t have backlights for individual keys, instead it has three zones. This allows for some cool affects, but some might prefer having individual key lights. Also, the light shines well at night, but could be hard to see during the daylight. The mouse may be a bit small if you have larger hands and use a palm style grip. For anyone else, the mouse feels light and durable.
5. Logitech Prodigy G403 + G213
This definitely isn’t the flashiest of options available on this list, but the performance more than makes up for that. The lighting options can feel a bit dull, especially compared with some of the other options on this list, and the mouse design feels a bit flat, but if you prefer a more minimalistic style or style isn’t that important to you, then you can’t go wrong with this combo from Logitech.
The Logitech Prodigy series features a keyboard that is made with gaming in mind. Each keypress feels almost instantaneous. It has up to 4x faster response time from your average keyboard. The mouse is very lightweight, agile, and comfortable, but it also has weights that are easy to remove for an even faster performance.
The keyboard is water resistant, but it doesn’t have any drain holes. If you happen to spill, you do have to flip the keyboard over and wait for it to dry out, which could put a damper on some game sessions.
4. Redragon K582-BA
If the design of the Logitech combo left you feeling a bit flat, then we’re back in the world of Redragon for an even better combo than any we’ve talked about so far. This keyboard blows the other Redragon options out of the water, but for almost double the cost of the S101, it could be out of some people’s price range.
The keyboard features 100% anti-ghosting, completely programmable keys, 18 different backlight modes, and has been tested extensively to ensure extreme durability. It is safe to say that Redragon pulled out all of the stops to make this keyboard top of the line. The mouse has seven buttons that are all programable, a DPI that can easily be adjusted in increments of 100 from 100 to 10,000, and a very comfortable design.
With all of the customization and programming options this combination has to offer, it is hard to imagine any set up that it wouldn’t fit. You are almost guaranteed to find a way for this combination to work for you.
3. ASUS Cerberus Combo
Another more minimalist approach to lighting design, the ASUS Cerberus combination makes up for its lack of flashing lights by performing at a top level. The rubberized feet on the base of the keyboard really stops it from slipping during those intense gaming moments. The mouse also has dual rubber side grips for enhanced control and stability.
The keyboard has drain holes on the back to ensure any spilled liquids exit quickly with no damage done. The mouse has six buttons that are all placed intuitively and an optical sensor to ensure the highest level of accuracy.
The Cerberus may not wow anyone with the way it looks and it isn’t quite as customizable as some of the options on this list, but ASUS has provided a combo that is sure to make everyone happy. Any negatives on this feels like nitpicking.
2. Razer BlackWidow Elite + Deathadder Elite
You may have been wondering when we’d introduce a Razer combo, so now we’re going to talk about some of the best products they have available. Serious gamers will be no stranger to the BlackWidow or the Deathadder, for good reason. The BlackWidow may be the most accurate keyboard on the market, offering 50g of actuation force and Razer Green switch technology. It offers fully programmable macro support allowing all keys and keypress combinations to be remapped. Each key is individually backlit and can be synced with most popular game releases for a full immersed experience.
Everyone has heard of the Deathadder, it is the #1 selling gaming mouse in the United States. And for good reason. The Deathadder V2 has dedicated DPI buttons to offer on-the-fly adjustments up to 20,000 DPI. The customizable lighting pairs well with the BlackWidow’s immersive experience. There are 8 buttons that are all programmable. The wheel is stable, accurate, and easy to control.
Really, you cannot go wrong with this combination. Razer has introduced two products that will improve any set up.
As if the BlackWidow and Deathadder weren’t enough, Razer offers even better options for the serious gamer. We’ve already talked about the Deathadder, but it pairs even better with the Cynosa keyboard than it does the BlackWidow. With built in key rollover anti-ghosting, the Cynosa can execute up to ten complex commands at a time. Gear from 30+ partners means the lights can sync with almost any game. Like the BlackWidow, all keys and keymaps are programmable.
For an even more immersive experience, Razer’s Kraken headset offers surround sound and custom tuned 50 milimeter drivers. The cooling gel infused cushions means you can stay comfortable no matter how long you game.
And it gets even better. Throw in the Razer Goliathus mousepad with built in chroma lighting and micro-textured cloth, and there’s a good chance you’ll never want to leave your chair. With Fathers Day coming up, this makes for the perfect gift if your dad is a PC gamer!
Any good gaming set up needs the right equipment. After you’ve sorted out the hardware of the computer tower, the most important thing is to find the right keyboard and mouse combination. Of course, the perfect fit for you comes down to a lot factors: hand size, price, colors, and personal preference all play a major part in determining your set up.
You are sure to find something that will fit your set up and style out of the options listed above.
