Little bit of background first: I am going to be using these for daily use and some light gaming. As for the keyboard, I do not have a personal preference between mechanical or non-mechanical keyboards so both are going to be considered. I do like having macro keys for using in daily use as well as gaming, so a keyboard with macros would be preferred. The mouse, I prefer a wireless mouse just because of personal preference but I am not hard set on wireless. Looking for something that will last daily use, so good build quality. Ok to the current items I am looking at: Mouse: looking for under $150 Mad Catz R.A.T 9 http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003CP0BHW?tag=gamingmice00e-20 Note: reading online I have seen a lot of blogs about problems this mouse has been having, is this common or am I just reading from the few who get a mouse that doesn't work?
