I would probably say get the Logitech MX5000/MX5500 Wireless bluetooth combo. I've had one for years and it's still working fine, even for gaming it's not that bad. And the MX5500 has the Laser bluetooth mouse included as well.

I can't speak for wireless keyboards, but pickup a Logitech G7 if you want a good wireless gaming mouse.

Its 2000dpi and a great wireless mouse.

I don't believe they bundle it with any keyboards though.

I would get the Logitech Cordless Desktop MX3200 it is cheaper then MX5000 and gives the same performance with out some of the unessary features, you still get your programable keys and all that tho...just no bluetooth; it is laser based. I have the MX3200 and I find it great for gaming hade it 2+ years and it keeps on going. Defently worth checking it out

Well this could be true keep in mind not much you can upgrade on a wireless mid range keybord IF you want the big upgrades you beter dish out the big bucks it basicly is that simple.

Wired keybords like the Razer Lycosa or G15 are the way to go for gaming (just my 2 cents)

Well Gameplaywarrior i got just one more thing to ask if you were to consider these item: the Saitek Eclipse 2 keyboard and the OCZ Alchemy Elixir Gaming Keyboard whit the Logitech G7 gaming mouse whish of these two keyboard you would choose?

By the way the G15 is not bad but its too big for my desk and frankly i found it too complicated too use (too many options that i dont need).

Oh and also the MX 5500 combo its not bad also but dosent look like comfortable (i like to keep thing simple).

And i would to like to ad that its funny that logitech hasent made a wireless keyboard for gaming to accompany his G7 mouse (just my 2 cents).
