    What do you guys think of this combo I selected from steelseries?
    Mouse - Rival 310
    Keyboard - Apex M650
    Headset - Arctis 5
    I know the M650 was replaced by the newer M750, but from where I'm from(PH), it is still available.
    Why am I sticking with one brand for all devices you may ask? I'm trying to keep it uniform so it'll fit nicely with the motif of my gaming cafe.
    I'd like to hear from you guys your thoughts on my combo. Feel free to suggests combos. I don't mind having different brands, but it would be great if you can stick with one brand. Also, RGB would be great!

    I;m going to recommend best-in-class items for each category.

    Mouse: Logitech G502 (get the Proteus Spectrum model if you want RGB). Simply put, the finest wired mouse you can buy today.

    Keyboard: Lots of options here. For the money you're paying, you can do much better than a Steelseries board Best-in-class brands for gaming keyboards here are Corsair or Coolermaster (CMStorm series). If you're buying a keyboard for gaming, consider getting a TKL (tenkeyless) layout. It provides much better ergonomics for gaming, because your left/right arms are closer together in a more natural posture. If you want a single product recommendation, CMStorm Quickfire TK in Cherry MX Brown switches.

    Headset: For $100 price range, Kingston HyperX Cloud 2. For $200, Sennheiser Game One. Both of those are best-in-class for their price ranges, hands down, no question.

    I've always considered going tenkeyless due to the price difference, never thought of how it impacts ergonomics and mouse positioning. Thank you for the insight! I've been eyeing the G502, but then Logitech keyboards and headsets are expensive for what they're worth. So you're suggestion is Logitech for mouse, a CoolerMaster tenktenkey keyboard, and a hyperx cloud 2?

    Yes.

    Those items will all be the best bang-for-your-buck in their respective category. You're going to be getting great gear in the mail soon. :)
