    Hi, I just got into PC a while ago and I'm still using a traditional keyboard, mouse, and headphones. My cousin did let me borrow his gaming mouse which made gaming so much easier, so I was curious what gaming peripherals I should get.
    • Keyboard - I'm highly considering an Ornata.
    • Mouse - I'm not sure where I stand on this except no MOBA mouses. Also, I'm not sure if wired or wireless is more convenient for me.
    • Headset - Kraken 7.1 v2 is very tempting for me to get, unless somebody can change my mind. Something with a good microphone.
    Can anybody recommend anything to me or shed some light into what gaming peripherals are good? It doesn't need to be Razer, it just needs to be at least pretty good quality. By the way, I'm pretty cheap so nothing too expensive please.

    Keyboard: "I'm highly considering an Ornata" - First of all, you should know that Ornata Chroma is a mecha-membrane keyboard. It means it has a traditional rubber dome with a clicky feel. If you'd like to get a mechanical switch, there are currently 3 to choose from whichever you prefer. Check this video out for comparison:

    I personally have an Ornata Chroma and I like it because the LED backlights pop out since. But if I'm gonna buy a mechanical keyboard strictly for gaming, I'd get a Blackwidow TE V2 (yellow switch).

    Mouse: There are a lot of Razer mice you could choose from. The most popular being Razer Deathadder Elite. I personally use Lancehead TE (wired) and I got no qualms with it. My advise when getting a Razer mouse - go for an optical sensor. May it be wired or wireless, never choose a laser sensor if you're in to accuracy.

    Headset: I won't try to change your mind if you'd like to get the Kraken 7.1 V2. It has a decent mic and sturdy build. However, if you'd like to experience its full potential, you'd still have to download the Razer Surround Software. You may want to check out Tiamat 7.1 v2 if you want true 7.1 surround.

    However,If you want a decent headset with great mic quality and DTS surround, you may want to check out HyperX Cloud Revolver S. I have one and I'm extremely happy with it.

    Yes, I do know about the Mecha-Membrane and the 3 Switches. I'm more drawn to the Ornata because it seems more familiar with what I have and easier typing. My second choice would be the Cynosa despite the lack of a mechanical feel.

    Thanks for the tip about the Optical and Laser sensors. The Razer Deathadder Elite seems very promising

    I do know about Razer Surround and the Tiamat seems expensive. Also, after looking at the HyperX Cloud Revolver S, I was intrigued until I saw the price. Otherwise it seem pretty good.

    I kinda want something cheap, but with good enough quality to last me a decade.

    After looking back, I should note a few things. I'm looking for a headset around the price of the Razer Kraken 7.1 v2. I kind of want to know how that headset stacks up against the Man O' War 7.1.

    Also if you want to know what games I'll be playing, I usually play Doom, I just got Rise of the Tomb Raider, and I love Indie Platformers. Any peripherals that fulfill those categories?

    Keyboard: Ornata. Great for typing, pretty good for gaming.
    Mouse: Lancehead TE (Or deathadder if you don't do any FPS). Don't get any Razer wireless mice, the sensors are bugged.
    Headphones: Best budget pair is Kraken Pro V2, (Same as Kraken 7.1 V2, Kraken just has chroma lighting, USB plug, and has built in 7.1 (Where as Kraken pro just requires Synapse to have 7.1)). More expensive is ManO'Ware 7.1 Wireless, which I highly recommend. Had mine for 8 months now, best pair of headphones for gaming I've used so far.

    Do bear in mind with the ManO'Wars though that people have been complaining about their durability.
    You said you wanted a pair of headphones to last you a decade. Well if the forums on here are to be believed, that is not the ManO'Wars. Not yet anyway. They have a known issue with the headband snapping.
    If you were thinking about those, apparently they have brought out ones with a stronger headband but I've not heard much about those.
    Just something to bear in mind.

    Have been using the deathadder series for about 5 years now. Can vouch for its comfort and durability. I play both MOBA and FPS games.
