I am currently in the process of looking for a new keyboard and mouse. I have had a few suggestions over team speak but i figured on the forums would be easier.
As far as keyboards go i was looking at the Merc Stealth from steel series. It looked to have a nice ergonomic gaming pad and i was curious if anyone had experience with this keyboard. For keyboards i was just looking for something that is specific for gaming. Like this merc stealth is the only one i noticed that has its key mapped specifically for gaming. I also herd mechanical keyboards are great. What makes a mechanical keyboard good?
As far as mouses i was looking into wired mouses. I got recommendations for the Lachesis 5600 but im worried it wont be comfortable. I was hoping for something with more than 5 buttons and comfortable.
Any advice would be great!

For keyboards, I've tried just about everything out on the market, from logitech's to razer's, to just about everything in between. When it came time for a new keyboard for me, I ended picking up a Razer Blackwidow. It's a mechanical keyboard, but it just feels nice. All the other KB's I tried the keys felt mushy, or the overall size of the KB was HUGE, and I didn't like that.
The reason Mech boards are so popular it's because they give you a kind of feedback (normally via click sound) that let's you know the key registered. Once you get use to it, it can be quicker to type on, and generally, the keys don't wear out anything like rubber dome keyboards. More information about Mech boards here.
As far as a mouse, I'm going to give you my bias opinion yet again. I've owned about 4-5 different mice, and I'll say this..
Don't buy a razer. They last for about a year to 2, then they start to have problems. (3 of them have had the scroll wheel mess up, then a single left click regesters as a double click, making it impossible to play games with)
The logitech I have still works, and it was one of the first mice I did buy (as far as a gaming mice) but I just can't get over the feel of it. That's really personal preference though, so it's up to you. It may feel better for you then it did me.
I just ordered one of these this morning, and I think it's about the best mouse on the market right now.
ROCCAT™ Kone [+] – 6000 dpi Max Customization Gaming Mouse Products Model: ROC-11-800 [ROC-11-800] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come
They are pricey, but I do believe you get what you pay for in mice. And honestly, the hardware is great on the mouse, but it's the software that makes it what it is...
So coming from a biased opinion, those would be my choices.. (hehe, they were my choices)

so for like the dpi, does ti make a difference? like i turn my sensitivity down in game for a little more control so wouldn't 6000 dpi be over kill? would i even be using all 6000 dpi?***Lesson learned.
