    I want to upgrade my gaming but can only do it one at a time. Should I get a monitor, mouse, headset, or keyboard first? What I'm upgrading from:

    Monitor: Samsung 60Hz 27" 1080p 2ms response rate; Not sure about the exact model, but these are the specifications. Oh, and this is a laptop, but it's also 1080p. Will upgrade to ASUS ROG Swift 2K.

    Mouse: Logitech Marathon Mouse M705, Wireless, Laser Sensor (Sensitivity 1000), 7 buttons, tilt scroll, 36-month battery, 2.4GHz receiver; I plan on upgrading to a normal Viper. Will upgrade to Viper.

    Headset: stock headphones; These work for now, but I have to use the onboard mic on the laptop. Will upgrade to Kraken TE OR Tiamat 7.1 V2.

    Keyboard: Logitech G15, Membrane, six macro keys, LCD statistics monitor, full size, multimedia keys; I'm pretty happy with it, but it's a membrane keyboard and I probably need to upgrade it to play competitively. Will upgrade to Huntsman TE.

    I'd upgrade mouse first, then headset :)

    Ok, was hast du den da für einen Laptop? Upgraden würde ich halt immer zuerst den PC. Verstehe ich richtig, du willst dir einen Asus Monitor holen? Das ist schon mal gut.
    Ansonsten würde ich bei der Peripherie immer sehen, das alles von einem Hersteller ist. Headset, Maus, Keyboard,Bungee, Headset Halter, Maus Pad. Am besten natürlich alles von Razer.
    - Tastatur, schwer zu sagen. Magst du eher Mechanisch oder halb-Mechanisch?
    - Maus, welche Größe haben deine Hände? Würde dann hier die Viper oder die Viper Mini nehmen
    - Kraken Headset am besten ab Tournament wegen Surround und THX
    - Bungee und Headset Halter und Mauspad , tja kauf hier was gefällt.

    Okay, what's that laptop you got there? I would always upgrade the PC first. So I understand you're looking to get an Asus monitor. That's a good start.
    Otherwise I would always see that the peripherals are from the same manufacturer. Headset, mouse, keyboard, bungee, headset holder, mouse pad. Preferably everything from Razer, of course.
    - Keyboard, hard to say. Do you prefer mechanical or semi-mechanical?
    - Mouse, what size are your hands? Would you take the Viper or the Viper Mini
    - Kraken Headset best from Tournament because of Surround and THX
    - Bungee and headset holder and mouse pad, well buy here what you like.

    Do not upgrade to Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2. Get Nari instead. Razer Tiamat is using the old Synapse 2.0 software. If you don't mind installing it while installing 3.0 for the other Razer peripherals, then go ahead.

    I want to mention that some stuff has changed. The laptop is different, the headphones are Logitech something with a microphone, and I'm currently BORROWING my mother's original Razer Naga. The keyboard is still the same though. The new laptop is an hp ProBook, not sure which model.

    I think that it would be better to upgrade your headset first. Not having the best headset can make or break your gaming!

    Thing is, I don't play FPS as often as, say MMO or RTS. While MMO might benefit some from a headset upgrade, RTS doesn't have any benefit from moving to surround sound. Oh, and don't forget ARPG (Diablo III). That will benefit exactly zero from a headset standpoint. I don't use voice chat very often as well.
