You've built your computer. Now it's time to dominate the online battlefields with some high-quality accessories. These include keyboards, mouses, mouse pads, headsets, speaker sets, monitors, you name it all. We will cover all of that, but only in a few parts. This first part will deal with the best mice and mice pads you need to purchase. We will then move on to keyboards and monitors in one part, and then finally your sound system: do you want a comfortable headset to listen and speak on or a booming sound system to combine for a mini home theater? Let's get started.
One of the first mice I ever recommend to buddies that just finished building their own desktop or are looking for a solid substitute to their own mouse, is the Razer Naga Chroma. Not only is Razer an ass-kicking company, but their Naga Chroma product line is quite possibly their best model ever released. It sells well, too, which speaks volumes of its quality and likeability among gamers.
The mouse is insanely precise, boasting a DPI of 16,000, one that many mice don't dare compete with. The buttons on the side are helpful for MMOs or any other games where you need to program them, and yes, they are very programmable. The mouse design is forgettable but it's built durable and the form factor is very comfortable, even hours after use.
Another perfectly customizable mouse is the Proteus, much more so than the Naga Chroma. I would even venture out to say this is one of the most feauture-rich mice in the gaming industry today, at least among mice underneath the $70 budget.
The Proteus features fine tuning of its weight and balance, to give you that perfect touch and extension of your hand. I find that it feels the best after hours of use among any mouse I have ever tried, not just these three that I recommend in this list. The Proteus also has standard features like programmable buttons and subtle lighting. It is frequently on sale for around $60, but retail price is roughly $80.
Yes, another Naga line in this list. If you don't like it, I don't care because it isn't your list. Haha, just joking. I'm not that rude. But seriously, I really love the Naga series. The Hex has some of the ugliest lighting I have ever seen on a gaming mouse, but I'll be darned if I didn't admit I loved feel of it.
Naga is just a great model to begin with, and to finish it all off, it's quite the affordable mouse anyway. You get a lot of lighting (if you can stand the lighting on this mouse), a mechanical middle mouse button and scroll wheel, programmable buttons on the thumb side, and a decent DPI sensor at 5600. It doesn't quite match the world class 16,000 DPI that the Naga Chroma gives you, but it still is highly accurate and one of my recommended picks if you are to buy a new gaming mouse and actually want high quality performance.
