Default razer and saitek

From what i've seen the razer 3G and the saitek eclipse 2 seems to be good. I want to change my 4 years old no name keyboard and my mouse. Is there something better than those two?

Depends, gaming?
I love my Razor but if you are a palm on top type gamer then something from Logitech maybe?
Merc steath keyboard. Nuff Said!

I hear lots of good about the tarantula- I own the merc stealth, and it's great for gaming, but annoying if you have to type a lot. some pretty heavily used keys are piggy-backed on the numpad and gaming pad- but if you're primarily a gamer it's a joy.

It also has an issue with my 680i where if an OC crashes my sytem, or I have to hit the reset button, I have to switch off the PSU for a minute or the keyboard won't work on reboot- might not sound like much but it seems to happen every second day, and it's annoying

Hey bud, I just grabbed the Lycosa from Razer. A great Keyboard! I love the look, and the way it types. Plus it is considerably smaller than my G15. The software appears to be amazing at customization, but I dont have the time to start messing with it. I noticed the backlighting to be a little weaker on the left side than the right, not sure if it is design flaw or a defect. Ah well. Installation was a breeze. I definitely recommend.
