Default Best Gaming Keyboard and Mouse for under $70?

UPDATE!

I didn't get a chance to read any of your suggestions because I left for the store before anyone responded.

What I got was the Logitech mx5500...

What do you guys think of this keyboard and mouse combo? The dpi of the mouse is pretty decent at around 800dpi. My old mouse only had like 400dpi.

I've noticed my performance in game has increased A LOT.

I love my Deathadder. it's often o sale for about $45-$50. As for keyboard, my MS Comfort Curve 2000 is not a "gaming" kb but I like the feel of the low action keys and gentle curve design of the kb. And it's like $10-$20 pretty much anywhere.

If you're on a tight budget, you could but this. I've been using mine for about a year now and I like it. The gaming pad works great and programmable buttons is a nice feature.

Crap, I didnt get a chance to see any posts, my mum just came and picked me up. We decided to get the logitech mx 5500. What do you guys think about this keyboard?

Its a $150 keyboard we got for only $100 because its a referb, but other than a bit of dust its perfectly fine.

As a owner of the Coolermaster Sentinel and the Razer Deathadder, I'd say that they're both very similar in terms of performance and comfort. This is with the same DPI settings (1800) for both mouses. However, there is one negative to the Sentinel in my opinion, and that is the side/thumb buttons are HARD to push compared to the Deathadder. In clutch situations they don't always work too, unlike the Deathadder...so unless you have a really really strong thumb then yeah.
