    What should I buy?

    I'm spending $81.30 on my Deathadder plus mouse pad (this price includes S&H). I still have about $110 to spend. What should I buy. The only game I want is Fallout 3 but I prefer good hardware before games.

    Crap I could use:
    A good desktop mic
    An Excellent game (PC)
    Other useful gizmos/Computer add ons/hardware

    You spent 80 bucks on a mouse? o-o

    You can probably find some nice cheap desktop mics at newegg.com

    Yea, get Valve Complete Package if you don't have any of those games.
    Else you might be able to gift the ones you have.

    And a good headset is always nice when playing online games.

    Or if you're cheap, get a Source game, and play all the great Source Mods. [​IMG]

    Didn't you have a 15" monitor? I'd suggest you upgrade that first.

    Sure. Because mouse > monitor right?
    Wrong.

    Unless you have a ball mouse, it doesn't really matter what mouse you have.
    Go for the monitor.

    Heh, for $190 you might be able to find a cheap Netbook on eBay ;D In all seriousness though, maybe a gaming keyboard to match your gaming mouse? I second the monitor idea if you're not dead set on a mouse as well.

    I would probably go for either of the monitors with the HDMI support.

    This should ensure that your monitor is HDCP compatible. Not sure if you want to play your 360 or PS3 on your monitor, but you wont be able to unless your monitor is this HDCP compatible.

    My friend tried to do a DVI to HDMI converter, but only got the black screen because its not HDCP comp. I would personally go for the ASUS as I have never heard a bad review about their monitors.

    I dont know what the particular mouse was, but I caught the Logitech G9 mouse on sale at buy.com for $50 USD, and free shipping. Excellent mouse I think. I got an oversized mousepad (aluminum) for about 30 bucks. It is a Razer exact mat with both "speed" and "control". Its double sided.

    As for games, I dont think you would have to buy those, I am sure you could "obtain" those for free.

    Good luck and all the best!

    G15 1st Gen is amazing, but hard to find. I got a shitty 2nd Gen. I cried, but didn't take it back, cause I was tired of my stupid MERC Stealth. Ideazon is a piece of crap company. >:|

    I have a deathadder and wow, it makes a big difference. That is if you play a lot and online.
    All the nubs here can't tell the difference because they don't have one!

    But still the monitor could make a bigger difference. When I upgraded from 19 normal to 22" wide, I was really impressed and you can see wider!

    Actually, buy a mouse and fallout 3 and send me the rest so i can replace my old second monitor that broke on me [​IMG]

    Yeah, that first monitor you pointed out looks excellent. Exactly the same as mine except mine had built-in speakers and 2ms instead of 5ms. But then again, mine wasn't free shipping!
