Default Mouse/Keyboard for Simple Gaming

I have a computer that I am gonna start playing a few games on. I have a wireless mouse and keyboard.

Will it be better to get a wired keyboard and mouse. It seems that my response times are a little slower than some of the people that I play against.

I know to get a higher DPI.

The game I will be playing the most is Battlefield 2142 and maye a few racing games. Thanks for any input you may be able to provide.

Plus I hate having to change the batts in the mouse. They always tend to go weak at the wrong times.

Not wanting to go overboard with it. Something that is good for the money.

Something like a Microsoft Laser Mouse 6000 and Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard would do the trick without getting too expensive.

I bought this mouse.

http://www.amazon.com/Saitek-GM3200-...586278&sr=8-21

Lots of people says it is great for people with larger hands.

I also found it for only $22 from another seller brand-new. Not $50 like on this page.

well i see that you are willing to spend $50.00 on a mouse, so i gather about the same price for a GOOD keyboard you won't mind paying, so i'd like to recommend the G15.

Its abit pricey...but trust me, i have this keyboard...and it was SO worth the money without doubt.

Logitech G5. It's a great mouse. You get 2000 DPI for about $50.00. It's the one I have. It's great for medium to large size hands and comes with a weight set. You can adjust the weight for more response or accuracy.

I think I might get that keyboard posted above. Still open to suggestions however.

What do you think about this keyboard?
