Keyboard and Mouse

The classic way to play games on your computer. Every modern PC has a pair of them. Laptops come with a keyboard and a trackpad built-in. 

 

A pair of regular keyboard and mouse are fine with most games, but maybe you want something more special, something made with gaming in mind. If that´s the case, this page lists a collection of keyboards and mice made for gaming. Click on the model´s name or picture of each accessory to go to their respective offsite store page.

Wired Keyboards
 

These are keyboards that are connected to the computer by a cable, usually a USB one. Their advantages are not having to deal with batteries or any possible input lag between you and the game.

Wireless Keyboards
 

Unlike their wired counterparts, these ones don´t require any cables to connect to the PC. They can be connected via Bluetooth or with a USB wireless connector that´s usually included with the keyboard. Their downside is that you will need to either buy or recharge their batteries.

Wired Mouse
 

Same concept as the wired keyboards, but with a mouse. These are mice that are connected to the PC with a cable. No batteries needed, just plug and play.

Wireless Mouse

Mice that don´t need a cable to connect to the computer. They are connected either with Bluetooth or a USB dongle.
