Gadget Geek's Guide to PC Gaming

By Gadget Geek

We've been playing Diablo III any chance we could get this week, and these are the accessories we've been using to kick demon ass!

We crawled out of the Diablo III gaming cave we’ve been living in for the past couple of days to round up the coolest stuff you can use during your quests in sanctuary.

Logitech Gaming Keyboard G110

We’re going to sound über-geeky, but we love this first product. When you play any sort of game with your lights on, it takes away from the exhilaration you get from kicking daemon ass and taking names, and unnatural light isn’t flattering. That’s why we think this backlit LED Gaming Keyboard made by Logitech is so badass. Designed with custom-colored backlit keys, 12 programmable G-keys and M-Keys, an integrated headphone jack and a spare USB port, this thing is a PC gamer’s dream. You’re able to see your keys until the crack of dawn, and at the reasonable price of $70 you can’t go wrong. Buy your own here!

Razer Mamba Wireless Mouse

We’re usually partial to Cyber Girls, but the Razer Mamba mouse and its recharging station are incredibly sexy. This wireless mouse not only has an impressive 4G dual sensor system that accurately tracks all of your super-fast-action roleplay moves, it also has over 16 million LED colors which can be customized to suit your personal style. It does have a pretty impressive battery life — the LED eats up a bit of the energy, but it’s so cool you won’t want to turn that feature off. Yes, the mouse is a bit on the pricey side ($160), but if you’re doing a lot of gaming, you’ll be happy you splurged. Buy your own here!

SteelSeries Diablo III Gaming Headset

This one was a no-brainer. Steel Series teamed up with none other than Diablo III to release a slew of awesome themed products just in time for the release of the game. What caught our eye out of all of the products released was the Diablo III gaming headset. Featuring fiery demon red LED illumination, a retractable microphone, leather-covered noise-reducing ear cups and in-line volume control, it’s impossible to not be in the mood to sit down for a lengthy gaming session once you put these on. These headsets don’t come cheap though ($118), so they are definitely for diehard fans only.
