    Keyboard:

    I'd suggest getting a mechanical keyboard! I currently have "Qpad MK 80 Pro" (best keyboard I've ever had). It has blue MX Cherry switches. Blue switches is clicky and loud, a more silent variant is the brown switches. If you want a totally silent keyboard, I'd go for black switches.

    Switches:
    Blue: tactile and clicky
    Brown: tactile and less clicky
    Black: not tactile and not clicky

    Some guides I found:

    Mouse:

    First of all, which grip do you prefer? Palm, claw or fingertip?

    I'd suggest:

    Palm: Razer DeathAdder or Qpad 5k
    Claw: Razer Lachesis, Logitech G9(x) or Steelseries Xai
    Fingertip: Razer Abyssus

    I'm currently using the Razer Abyssus. :)

  6. I use the following:

    Overall, I like these both because i have a total of 30 bindable keys, which doesn't include the triple bind profiles which would increase it to 90. Also, i like how i have no limit on the color of the leds and i can match them how i like. Also, the ventrilo applet is great even though i have dual screens. The g510 also includes a built-in headphones output and mic input which i can mute independently.
