The new list. I will explain the parts that I changed from your list.

  • RAM: RAM prices changed, this set is cheaper and will work just as well. Life time warranty and timings don't matter in terms of performance.
  • SSD: Prices changed! The CL4111 was on a very good deal back then, but is more expensive than the Samsung 850 EVO. Which is a very high quality SSD. Review.
  • HDD: Again prices changed and the WD Blue is now very close to pricing with the Seagate HDD. This WD Blue how-ever runs at a lower RPM. Which also means slightly less performance. But for your use case, this is something you would not be able to tell if you did a blind test. Less RPM also equals less hit on wear + a more quiet operation.
  • GPU: Because you asked for Nvidia I had to go for the GTX970. It would be possible to squeeze in the GTX980, but I will show you why I did not do this. If we compare benchmarks from 5 games @ 1080p. Also if you buy the GPU from B&H you'll get a free game with it: Rise of the Tomb Raider! If you absolutely have to buy it from Amazon/Newegg I suggest to get it from Newegg so you'll also get the game; but it's $20 more.

    GPU|CoD: Advanced Warfare|Metro: Last Light|Assassin's Creed IV|Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor|World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria
    GTX 970| 136.6 FPS | 80.9 FPS | 58.5 FPS | 89.9 FPS | 210.0 FPS
    GTX 980| 149.8 FPS | 86.9 FPS | 61.3 FPS | 101.5 FPS | 224.1 FPS
    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant


    Now I have to be absolutely clear that the R9-390X got advantages over the GTX970 aside from just pure performance.

  1. VRAM: 8GB vs 3,5GB. The GTX970 only got 3,5GB of usable VRAM. Now for 1080p this is absolutely nothing to worry about, yet. But games start to really utilize and push the VRAM to it's limits already. So the GTX970 will fall behind here eventually. This mostly means that you have to turn down the quality of the games; so that the GPU requires to use less VRAM.
  2. DirectX 12: AMD is having the advantage here. The current Nvidia cards out are not designed to "work well" with DirectX 12. Here is an article that explains the issue. Now for the moment there is only 1 game out that runs on DX12. So we can't draw too many conclusions from it just yet but the AMD cards get a very nice performance boost over the Nvidia cards.

u/RedZaturn · 1 pointr/FortniteCompetitive

Unfortunatley a console just isn't a competitvle platform for tons of reasons. If you want to actually get into competitive Fortnite, I wrote a guide on how to get into PC gaming for as cheap as possible with new hardware.


You are probably wondering what qualifies me to hold these opinions on this topic. Well, I have been gaming on PC for nearly a decade since I started playing minecraft alpha on a potato HP laptop in the 6th grade. I built my first PC in the 8th grade, and since then I have helped build over a dozen systems for friends an family members and friends of family members and family members of friends. Building PCs is one of my favorite things to do, and I am always looking to help more people to make the switch in a cost effective manner.

First off, here is some gameplay from a 1050ti and an i5 7400. These components are more than adequate to surpass 144fps at stretched res and low settings. His whole channel has game play vids of his hardware running popular pc games, and the 1050ti is a little powerhouse for its size. This PC can do much more than run fortnite. It is perfect for competitive CSGO too. Really, this pc will have no problems running competitive shooters and MOBAS at 144fps, and RPGs at 60fps.

While this pc might not be the fastest pc out there, the important part is that it is leagues better than a console. If not for the simple fact that you can turn off shadows and play stretched res, never mind that it averages 144 fps.






Here is the pc part picker list. The 8100 i3 is 11% faster than the 7400 i5 in that video. If you are worried about actually building a PC, don't be. I built my first rig when I was in the 8th grade, and it took less than an hour and booted first time. This video is a great tutorial. Even though the components they are using are different, PC hardware is standardized and the build process is the exact same.

I would get that PC and worry about peripherials later, assuming you already have a computer monitor of some kind at home along with a shitty mouse and keyboard. And if you already game with headphones on your console, there are adapters you can use to plug your console headset into your pc.






Everything after this point is non critical, but will make your experience so much better. I put them in order of importance to your game play experience.


The next purchase you should make after that is this AOC 144hz gsync compatible monitor. Its a great panel, and the gsync works great for eliminating micro stutter and screen tearing. "But /u/RedZaturn, why would you get 144hz when 240hz is a thing!?!?!?" Well timmy, a good 240hz adaptive sync monitor costs almost as much as this entire PC. And whats the point of spending $400 on a monitor that you PC can't even come close to properly utilizing? A build that can properly run fortnite at 240hz is gonna cost closer to $1000, and add in a $400 monitor and the price gets steep quick. Just get a 144hz monitor and stop worrying about it.


After that, get a good mouse with a decent sensor. Optical mice are generally better than laser mice. The m65 is a good FPS style mouse and your scroll wheel click, scroll up, scroll down, thumb forward, and thumb backward are all assignable.A large mouse pad that takes up your entire desk is also a good thing to get. When playing shooters, you want your DPI to be much less sensitive than what your average non gamer has their mouse set to. This allows you to be much more accurate, and the lower your sens the more room you need to move your mouse.


After that, Get a mechanical keyboard with the switch of your choice. I prefer reds. Cherry MX switches are the most trusted out there, but any mechanical switch will be better than a membrane keyboard.


If you have an old windows pc lying around you can use the key off of the sticker on the case to activate pirated windows. If the activate windows watermark doesn't bother you, there is no point worrying about buying a legitimate copy.






Basically, building a PC isn't a sprint. You don't have to buy all the top end gear to have a better experience than what you get on a console. Streamers like ninja and tfue have their crazy powerful systems because they make crazy amounts of money. But it is completely overkill for what they play. And upgrading components slowly over time is how I did it almost a decade ago. I stuffed a GPU into my super old and slow PC just to get 60fps in counter strike source. Played on a shitty mouse and keyboard that my school threw out and I snagged from the trash. Used an old plasma vga monitor from a PC my dad bought in 2003 that looked absolutely horrible. And I loved every second of it. If you have any questions feel free to ask in the comments!

u/swoledier · 6 pointsr/gamingpc

Since you didn't say, I'm going to assume you're a palm gripper...and just in case (since some people get it mixed up), low sens = using a lot of mouse movement to turn around, whereas high sens = just needs a few inches to do a 360.


  • Razer Deathadder 2013 ($57): I haven't seen anything negative about this mouse's sensor, only praise...I'm assuming it's another Deathadder with a flawless sensor. You can't beat the Deathadder in design/ergonomics if you're a palm gripper - it has . Downside is having to use Synapse 2.0 drivers which I have heard are a pain in the ass...haven't used them myself though. Also, I feel that the braided cable is a downside too since it is much heavier and rigid than non-braided.

  • Zowie EC1 eVo ($62): (Just got mine yesterday, I've used the Mamba (wireless Deathadder) for quite a while before this) Huge mouse feet for dat glide, non-braided cable, mouse is so freaking light that it feels wireless (especially with a cable bungee), absolutely no drivers - you just hold down certain buttons while plugging in the USB if you want to change settings. Flawless sensor and great for low sens gaming due to its lightness and optical sensor. Oh yeah, and it comes with a spare pair of mice feet, how can ya not love that?

    A wireless Mamba is gunna set you back $105 for the mouse alone, so I don't suggest that, even though this mouse has served me well.


    At that price ($110) for that Cooler Master board, it's just not worth it. Leopold is a better choice at that price range. Don't get me wrong, CM makes good stuff, but their niche is in the sub $70 range...that's when they are really good buys, but you'd have to wait for a sale, and who knows when the next one would be.

  • Leopold: Mechanical keyboards are absolutely worth it and these guys make some of the best keyboards on the market (in our price range). You're going to have to decide what switches you want though. I went with red, they are incredibly light, but if I got to choose again I'd probably go with blacks (they are a little heavier to press). It all depends on what you mostly do...gaming or typing? If you type more than game then you'd probably be better off with browns or blues. These things are built like tanks though, really sturdy and heavy, also it's nice that there is a groove to route the cable to the left or right on the back, if you need that. This keyboard will literally last you forever.


  • SteelSeries Qck Heavy ($21) or Qck+ ($17): The most popular low-sens mousepads around. The Heavy has a 6mm thickness and is good if your desk has an uneven surface. The Qck+ is just a skinny version of the same thing at 2mm thickness. I have a Qck+ but looking to buy a Heavy just because I want something thicker; the Qck+ does its job very well though. Btw, the Zowie glides amazingly on this pad.

  • Xtrac Ripper XXL ($30): If you want something ungodly in size so that you can put your keyboard and mouse on it, then look no further than this desk pad.

    I don't know how you feel about cable drag, but it makes me want to do terrible things to innocent creatures. I mentioned earlier that I am using a mouse bungee ($17) from Razer and it works well enough. The Zowie's cable is a bit too thick to fit in the last clip closest to the base, but it fits in the other two just fine and does its job of no-drag. But, if you've got enough space for the cable to stretch out...Zowie's cable is so light that you might not feel it anyway.

    I went as close to the budget as I could/went over it a bit (depending on what you choose). If you're going to be dropping this much money on peripherals then you might as well get the best that will last you for years to come.

    Let me know if there is anything else...

u/uncashregistered · 3 pointsr/LearnCSGO

You can start with a SteelSeries QcK+, or QcK Heavy, depending on if you want the pad to be thicker. Personally I don't like these because they're pretty rough and give me friction burns on my wrist, so if you're worried about that happening to you there's other options like Glorious XL, Razer Gigantus, Zowie G-SR, HyperX Fury S (this one is also rough for me but not as bad as QcK), and there's many more but that's a few off the top of my head. Some are a bit pricey though. If you really want some good info and help from more people, make a post on /r/mousereview saying what games you play and what kind of features, if any, you're looking for. They help me out with mouse related stuff all the time, and I'm also pretty active there too haha.

More than likely the QcK+ will be plenty for you as long as it isn't too rough for you. Seems to be an uncommon problem, but I have talked to other people with the issue. Just try to find a pad that's at least 40cm (400mm) or 16in or so wide, that's the most important thing. Some people swear by the Allsop Raindrop XL even though it's a bit on the small side for me. If you're around 900-1000 eDPI you should be fine with this one, I like it a lot, just wish it had a couple more inches in each dimension.

I have this mousepad (the CompLexity team version) coming in tomorrow if you want to wait and see if I recommend it.

Apologies for the wall of text, I'm kind of into this stuff, probably too much haha.

u/j0n_ · -1 pointsr/GlobalOffensive

whats your mouse? i dont know if training in this position is really....benefitial. Or maybe i am imaging it incorrect?! If you WANT to improve at this point then the casual mindset will be completely gone in a month or two...thats what happened with all of us. When i started i was like "oh yea i dont really care, my aim will be bad but it will be fun i guess" and now i train aim almost everyday and play on EU Supreme Elo, ESEA and in a Team...RIP :D

If there REALLY is no option for you to play on a table, then maybe the best option would be something like this: http://www.amazon.de/COUCHMASTER%C2%AE-Pro-PC-Gaming-integriertes-Kabelmanagement/dp/B00CCHRJ2Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1451049748&sr=8-1&keywords=COUCHMASTER%C2%AE+Pro

that would be a hard surface with a good mousepad and that is really important for decent aim.

Edit: before i get more downvotes on that while i just try to help: i am not suggesting to buy this...its the idea...you can also build something like that.

The entire build is themed White, black, with purple highlights. The RAM is white with controllable RGB (set it to purple), the stock Wraith cooler is controllable RGB (set to purple), the motherboard is black and white with controllable RGB (set to purple), the GPU is powerful enough for 1440p 60fps ultra settings and is white, the keyboard is one of many potential options with full RGB (set to purple), the mouse is black and white with RGB (set to purple).

Now, here's some more stuff not listed-


With cablemod, you can easily get a G3 compatible cable kit that is either white, purple, or purple and white depending on if you go with a basic cable kit or you make a custom one. They also sell other things, so depending on how nuts you want to go, look that site over. Things like purple thumbscrews, purple SATA cables, etc. Note- the cable kit MUST be G3 compatible, or you will fry your system. Thankfully there are tons of G3 compatible kits there.

Next, you could do either black and white fans OR black and RGB controllable fans set to purple. This case can support 2x 120mm fans in the back and top, and 2x 140mm fans in the front. I picked out Fractal un-lit fans simply due to quality and I'm not sure how lit up you want this case to be. However, something like a the Corsair HD 120mm 3x pack with controller would be a suitable choice here. I use that myself, and the purple setting would complement nicely. Other fan kits also exist, some with more fine control over what colors you want such as this would emit less light, but have much more control over what color you want through a program versus the switch on the Corsair. You could do 5x 120mm here, but the 140mm option in the front would make less noise and push more air. The Nzxt Aer 140mm would work in conjunction with the 120mm 3x pack, since it all leads to the same controller.

Oh, and here is a white with black outline cloth mouse pad, white would round this all out nicely. https://www.amazon.com/Glorious-Extended-White-Gaming-Mouse/dp/B00NOCZB78

The Nzxt H440 also comes in a similar color scheme if you want a different case option with better airflow and more space to work with. I believe you can also purchase the tempered glass panel they use in the S340 elite and use that directly with the standard model, but I'm not 100% positive on that. Glass would look nicer, so you might want to consider the Elite S340 in plain white instead. Up to you.

Hope you like this!

Edit2- You could also set case fans to emit a white light, thus illuminating your interior more.
Here is an optional SSD that comes in white or black, and emits RGB controllable lighting https://www.teamgroupinc.com/en/product/delta-s-rgb-ssd

You could also use an M.2 drive such as the 970 evo if you want the SSD to be hidden more (and it's obviously much faster, though not noticeable for gaming).

the faster the ram the better. also you might want to get a mouse mat


but I would get a white glorious mouse mat to go with your black keyboard and mouse. also if you want more storage you can go for a 500gb ssd instead od a 1tb and get like a 4tb hdd. The case I can change out if you want. also you can go to cable mod to get custom hand sleeved cables.Also get 1 34 inch curved monitor instead of three. here's a review of one

u/Hundike · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

If you want a TKL I have the Ducky Zero with reds for gaming and I'm very happy with it. Blue switches are probably nicer but we decided we're gonna go for the quieter ones for now (my partner has a Ducky Shine 3 with browns, those are really nice as well). If you don't need a number pad I would highly recommend a TKL, it's very comfortable and saves a surprising amount of space on your desk.

I would recommend this keyboard and this wrist pad - it comes a bit over £100 but it's well worth it. Or if OCUK has some deals running grab something else, the reviews are quite good there.

u/UnDeaD_AmP · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

For me, the feel is good. A bit mushy for about a week, but afterwards, if you can touch type, I'd say its perfect. The bumps do help a TON with tactility. As a high school senior, I've only written a couple long session papers on this but from my experience its really awesome. If i have one recommendation for this board for typing, i'd say get a wrist rest since it sits high in my opinion. I got the Grifiti fat wristrest and now I can game and type for hours. (: About 3 months into this combination and i really like it.

I just cleaned my kitchen, which makes me super happy--it was disgusting, and now it's sparkling clean!!!

If I win, could I have this? I want to give it to my best friend!! He's broke and in law school, and it would make me super happy to give him something :)

u/bn25168 · 3 pointsr/OverwatchUniversity

I upgraded many months ago to a Logitech G403 (wired version): https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-910-004796-Prodigy-Gaming-Mouse/dp/B01KUAMCV4

Its got a "top of the line" (according to Logitech) sensor, up to 1000hz polling rate and customizable DPI up to some ridiculously high number. Other than the specs, the size and shape of the mouse is perfect for my large hands.

Basically the way i went about choosing a mouse was I looked at what the pros use and chose the one I liked the best. Seagull uses the Logitech G Pro. So i went with the G403. Its the same exact specs as the G Pro, just with a larger and non ambidextrous design.

Why did I decide to spend more money on an expensive mouse? Smooth tracking/aim and no pixel skipping. IMO the difference between a fancy top of the line mouse and a basic shit tier mouse is night and day.

I also recommend buying a super big mousepad to go with a new mouse. I use 1600 dpi and 2.77 in game sens. My aim is super silky smooth and precise. Here's a link to my 18 x 16 inch mousepad that i love: https://www.amazon.com/Glorious-Extended-Gaming-Mouse-Mat/dp/B00NOD04CY?th=1

As for keyboard i have an older Razer Black Widow Ultimate that I've used for many years. So i recommend a solid mechanical keyboard. However if you had to choose between upgrading your mouse or your keyboard, I think your mouse is a way more important upgrade since thats what you use to aim.

u/RubenMcNoobin · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I've never used the square ones from PC Gaming Race so I unfortunately don't have an opinion on that. I did buy a couple of the most popular ones on Amazon after reading reviews.

This one, Le Petit Mouse Cushion by Imak is my all-time favorite. It's the perfect size and height for my wrists when my arms are at the same height as my desk. It's has just enough support, but not too much. More importantly, two sides - one is a soft cloth that does a great job clinging to most mousepads, and the other side has very smooth bumps that let it glide everywhere which is perfect for when I'm playing games and moving my mouse everywhere.

The Handstands Add-A-Pad is my second favorite and the one I use at work. Be warned though, plenty of reviews were right - too many beads at first! I have smaller wrists and using it at first caused MORE pain since it would sit my wrist so high. After removing ~40% of the beads over the course of a couple times, I found exactly the amount of support I needed. Sewed it up and it's much better!

u/Shadow703793 · 5 pointsr/pathofexile

OP, the equipment (mouse + keyboard + hand rest) really matters. If you don't have a good mouse or keyboard and a hand rest you may want to really invest in these.

Also you can map your mouse buttons to the keyboard. Or you can map everything to your mouse if you decide to go that route. A good multi button mouse like the G600 (specifically meant for MMO gaming without using the KB much) can map all the keys needed for POE to the mouse. There are other mice you should look at, specifically look for a decent 5-7 button mouse. Gigabyte makes quite a good 5 button mouse you can get for like $20.

I HIGHLY recommend a good mouse pad and a wrist rest pad. I use this 3M wrist pad combined with a Steel Serise mouse pad. A good mouse pad makes a very noticeable difference in terms of how hard/easy it is to move the mouse.

Here is the monitor I recommend:


Here is the mousepad I recommend:


So this should all be plenty for his intentions.

AMD’s Ryzen lineup has more cores than intel and tends to be a much better “bang for the buck”

8GB of high speed ram

Instead of a GTX 1060 or 1070, I went with an RX580 to save money. It has very equivalent performance as the 1060, and even better in some areas.

I added a WiFi card to allow for wireless connectivity, which isn’t necessary if you plan to wire your connection.

A nice CherryMX Switch keyboard.

A 2TB Hard Drive for games and a 240GB SSD for Windows. (Allows for faster boot times and a smoother experience overall.)

A good looking case that has a glass side panel on one end.

And a 75hz monitor that is a steal at the moment. I actually have one of these myself and it is amazing for its price, I’m very satisfied. Only downside is it doesn’t ship with an HDMI cable, only VGA so make sure you have a spare.

And of course a large mousepad, not necessary but helps.

If your son plans on using a mic, he needs a USB splitter which is super cheap and you can get off of Amazon for ~$10.


This build should get the job done for your son;)
I know it’s a little out of budget, but the extra money is worth it.

Edit: I also recommend purchasing another case fan for $5-10 as this only comes with 1 preinstalled.

u/dragoth13 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I use the 3M Precision Mousing Surface. It's not particularly large, which I like because I'm a little cramped for space. It's about the thickness of a credit card, but flexible. The top is ridged in a way that makes my R.A.T. 3 just glide over it super smoothly. Never had any issues with it losing tracking or anything, and I can't speak for how well it extends mouse battery life as I can't stand gaming with a heavy wireless mouse.

As for speakers, I don't know if I can really help you since I use a pair of Bowers & Wilkins DM602 bookshelf speakers and a Lepai 20w amplifier. Those speakers might be a bit out of your price range, but I totally recommend going the outboard amp + bookshelf speaker route if you have the room and want really good sound.

u/perpterts · 1 pointr/buildapc

Hmm that was an interesting study to read. I'm not sure if it makes any difference, but it seems like that study was focused mainly on the ergonomics of using mice. I know some mouse pads themselves come with wrist rests, typically made out of that silicon material. However, i'm just talking about keyboard wrist rests.

It would have been interesting to see this study being done on subjects using a keyboard, both with and without a wrist rest (i'm sure there is such a study, somewhere..not going to bother with trying to dig one up at this moment). A keyboard requires much more work from one's hands so I could assume that a wrist rest would help alleviate someone who maybe works for long hours at a time at a keyboard that doesn't already provide some sort of angled wrist support.

From personal experience-- I've had a co-worker who is an avid PC gamer and always uses his K65 compact mechanical keyboard which comes equipped with a rubberized (or some sort of softer plastic) slope for support.

At our job, we need to be using a computer at all times. The keyboards provided to us there have absolutely no support for the wrist. He began to complain of feeling strain on his wrists, and bought himself one of these, and hasn't complained since.

So it's a bit tough to say, but I feel like there's a lot of factors. For some people it could work and for others, maybe not.

I've had pain in my wrists, mostly from diablo-style action RPGs, but I ended up switching to much more ergonomic setups at both home and work.

I switched to an ergonomic keyboard:

An important note, a lot of keyboard have those little raising feet on the back. They are bad for your wrists. They are the result of putting feet on the front getting patented (which are good for your wrists) and keyboard companies deciding that those were cool selling points and putting the feet on the back to avoid the patent, regardless of how bad it was for the user... This microsoft keyboard avoids the patent by having a separate attachment that raises the front to create a neutral wrist position.

At work I use this mouse wrist rest because I have multiple monitors and need to move my hand to get across all of them. I also have a hard mousepad so that it slides effortlessly:

At home I use this wrist rest and high sensitivity so I barely have to move my hand to accomplish things:

It's all about avoiding twisting and bending your wrist and excessive strain on it. It made a huge difference for me, but I ended up buying like 4 different mouse wrist rests at the same time since they were all around $10 to find the ones that worked best for me.

u/austinf0317 · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

Yeah O.o I love the white, and the cleaning it has been worth it. Even though I probably don't need to, I end up throwing it in the washer every couple months. Super easy to get nice and clean!

For the actual mousepad...it's this one: http://www.amazon.com/Glorious-Extended-White-Gaming-Mouse/dp/B00NOCZB78, except they seem to have switched the emblem recently. The one I have has the Glorious PC Gaming Race emblem stitched into it, as you can see in the timestamp. And yeah, its the XXL, the long one.

u/proxydouble · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Some things to consider to optimize your mouse setup:

• DPI: People have different preferences, and you gotta find what works for you and your current monitor resolution. It's generally good practice to buy a mouse with decent DPI settings. I recommend this.

• Mouse Pad: A large and smooth surface area for your movements is always better. This is why a lot of people prefer mouse pads like this and this.

• Hand/Mouse Ratio: I can't really recommend anything here, but it's usually best to use a mouse that feels right for your hand. In other words, ergonomics. The mouse I posted above works for me, but it may not be best for everyone. My recommendation here is to go to a local electronics store and try out their display 'gaming' mouses.

Good luck!

So I went from a large Roccat Sense I bought at Best Buy to this Glorious PCMR from Amazon. Man is this thing HUGE but its great quality and I never worry about having enough space. If you can find the extra dinero, I'd save up for this one. It's great quality IMO as well. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0164KY294/ref=twister_B00OZ6M4KY?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

u/ItsADanThing · 2 pointsr/cad

I have very large hands and have used a few high(er) end mice over the last couple years. I would also recommend a wrist pad, either as part of the mousepad or something like this.

My favorite mouse for every day use is the SteelSeries Rival 300 (I have the original rival which appears to be the same as the 300). It is quite large and has grippy rubber on either side. You can also disable the lighting easily with the software and it won't scream "gaming mouse". I have used it at work for a the better part of 4 years now and have no complaints, the rubber under my thumb has worn quite a bit but otherwise it is just fine.

For home I have the logitech g502 which I like quite a bit but it is distinctly a gaming mouse. It is pretty big but still a lot smaller than the Rival, I have to claw grip it still. I am actually considering replacing it with another Rival.

The g502 replaced a Corsair m65 for me which I never loved, it was solid but was a bit too small and never felt quite right for me.

The m65 had replaced my old Logitech g9x which I loved but was discontinued and demands too much for a good condition one these days.

u/MrPowerglide · 2 pointsr/DIY

That will make it look great and a triple monitor would definitly make a difference. I would center the monitors and use some cable management.
And I saw this on YouTube video recently that made a clean look. It's a big mouse pad that makes come together.
Also I can see that you got a headset on the desk, I would recommend that headset stand. These small details will definitely make a clean and elegant look so the desk really can shine and stand out.
Great job by the way!

u/PhamQu · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Hello! First of all, thanks for hosting this.
I own 2 mice, Logitech G502 and G602. I use the wireless G602 most of the time, and break out the Proteus Core for more intense or competitive FPS games.
I'm also currently using Glorious' extended mouse mat. Amazon link.
Photo 1. // Photo 2.
I prefer the extended sized mouse pads because I like the aesthetic of having both the mouse and keyboard on the same mat, as well as extra room for your phone or game controller.
This was my first mousepad. I've not really anything to compare it to. I do like the thickness/weight of the pad, and the stitched edges prevent fraying. However, I do wish the logo was not so intrusive.
Best of luck to everyone!

u/LeftMySoulAtHome · 11 pointsr/GirlGamers

Hi! I also have chronic pain/am disabled. I play Steam games with an Xbox One controller with the Windows 10 wireless adapter. (I tried the Steam Controller but it was bulky, not intuitive, and I basically hated it. lol. YMMV.)

I have my tower sitting in this cabinet, which I covered with this film to keep everything hidden. My husband cut out the back of the cabinet to install a fan / make room for the cables to come out of the back.

We used these cord covers to keep everything neat.

I use this wall-mounted swing arm from Amazon for my monitor. I push it toward the wall when I am done. (I put my chair/station in the corner for this to work.)

I sit in an IKEA Poang chair with ottoman, using this lower lumbar cushion and this coccyx cushion.

I use this mouse arm on the Poang chair, these cushions for my elbows, and a beanbag rest for my wrist (for when I have to use the mouse).

My keyboard sits on a shelf beside me and I pull it onto a lap desk (stored under my chair) for when I need to use it.

I also have a wall mount for my Xbox One controller.

I hope that helps! It took me a long time to get something together that keeps my living room still looking like a living room. :)

u/ranterbach · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I'm a huge fan of Corsair's peripherals. I'm using a Scimitar mouse and K70 RGB keyboard right now. Never had any quality issues myself, but their customer support is superb. I really like their aesthetic.

Logitech is a solid choice if you like their products. Personally I'm not into it, but I don't care for "gamer" stuff in general.

As for audio, I wouldn't recommend a headset of any kind. Personally, I use a pair of AKG K553 Pros, a FiiO E10K DAC/amp, and an Audio Technica AT2020 mic. That said, I understand that not everyone cares about audio as much as I do. If you're happy with the sound quality of your Krakens, you could get most any Logitech, Corsair, SteelSeries, etc. headset in the same price range and get comparable results.

This is the mouse pad I use. I don't care about flashy lights or fancy designs, I just wanted a large mouse pad.

u/Stinsudamus · 1 pointr/pcgaming


This one is the one I have... its availible in various sizes, plenty thick for daily gaming and minor cushion. It's pretty hardy and easy to clean in case you spill...

Overall dope pad for the price. Going 3-4 years strong still.

3mm is plenty. However if that's a deal breaker I get it, just an awesome price and product if you are not needing that extra 2mm of thickness which IMHO is too much. If you seek more cushion than 3mm an auxiliary wrist rest would better suit you and facilitate that overall comfort/ergonomics without having a extra heavy thick mousepad on the whole surface instead of just where its needed.

u/Unacceptable_Lemons · 11 pointsr/buildapcsales

Some other options if you're looking for "deskpads" would be:

This pad, for $14, with the advantage of 50% more depth (18 inches vs the 12 in the OP), but the disadvantage of having it say "TECKNET" and cost an extra $2. It's the one I'm using right now, so I can vouch for it. Like the OP, it includes stitched edges.

Also, for $10.40 (slightly cheaper than OP), you can get this map mousepad which is also around 35% more depth than the OP at ~16 inches. Upsides also include the picture if you're into that, and being slightly cheaper. The same page also has other designs if you want a pad with a picture. Like the OP, it includes stitched edges.

However, if you just want a clean black pad, and 12" depth is fine for you, the pad in the OP looks nice. I mainly appreciate the lack of branding, although I do wish they offered a larger size. If I could get a pad that would cover my entire desk, I would. Having that + no branding + stitched edges would be sweet.

I've got the Perixx DX-2000XXL. It's big enough for my mouse and keyboard to comfortably fit, and to provide a bit of cushion for my wrists. Super grippy bottom and nicely stitched edges.

It's been easy to clean (doesn't really pick up much dust/dirt) and was pretty cheap compared to some of the other offerings.

u/redditthrowaway1770 · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

i bought https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01AS8ROZ2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 on sale for 11 bucks the other week. Its not exactly the same size but its still pretty big and the best part is that it doesnt have the logo. It's pretty solidly made and looks like it will hold up a long time.

u/strig · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

S Pro looks awesome. I have a model down from that, the QuickFire Rapid with brown switches. Amazing keyboard.

I would highly recommend getting a grifiti wrist rest for it. It fits perfectly with this keyboard form factor and makes typing a lot more comfortable.

u/capn_hector · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

For the most part I'm really happy with it. Dead accurate, very smooth, and the "self-cleaning" ball just works. You hold it differently from a mouse, and it doesn't pretend to be a mouse like other trackballs. It's very, very large in comparison to most devices (probably not good for small hands) and you need to hold your hand very far forward to work the buttons and the scroll wheel right. It's always comfortable but it takes a month or two to fully adapt until it feels "natural" and you stop thinking about it. I do recommend a wrist rest since you hold it so far forward. If you let your wrist "kink" as it meets the desk I think you will get real sore.

It's my personal bet to try and stave off carpal tunnel syndrome - I think moving my fingers/hand to roll the ball is less likely to cause problems than a thumb-control trackball (moving your thumb while your hand is clenched is not a natural movement) or a mouse. I've never had problems with CT Syndrome, but given that I work at a desk I do worry about the potential for it.

There are a few things I don't like about the LaserTRAC - the combo to toggle sensor resolution (middle+right mouse button) is easier to hit accidentally than I'd like particularly in gaming, there are only 3 buttons, and as far as I know there are no "real" add-on buttons available, just things that people have ghetto'd up with Legos and stuff. The only one I've ever seen that looked good was a modded dictation foot-pedal - but at that point you might as well just get a USB dictation foot-pedal and forget about the LaserTRAC's expansion ports. I got the jacks because they were only like $5 or $10 extra on Massdrop... but it's pretty much wasted money.

Personal opinion here but the casing's "top slope" is not quite right somehow and I think that's where some of the learning curve comes from. I use a wrist rest to get my hand farther up on the device and it works fine, but really I think they could stand to lop off the closest 3/4" or 1" of the body casing so that you are not tempted to rest your hand too low on it. Or maybe just embrace the fact that it's an enormous honking trackball and have a less aggressive downward curve to force your wrist higher up into a horizontal position.

u/makaseo · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I had the same problem, and I now use a superwide desk mat under both my keyboard and mouse. Mine was discontinued, but it's very similar to this one that I've been hearing really good things about.

Added benefit of being super comfortable on your wrists/forearms when typing or gaming.

u/MrPhi · 2 pointsr/Overwatch

Hey, diamond Widowmaker with around 270h there! There seem to be some confusion, let me enlighten you as much as I can on the topic.

The sensitivity of your mouse is expressed in dpi (Dots per Inch).
The Windows settings do not matter, Overwatch uses the mouse raw inputs.

Overwatch has then four sensitivity settings when it comes to Widowmaker:

  • Global sensitivity
  • Horizontal sensitivity
  • Vertical sensitivity
  • Scope sensitivity

    A sensitivity of 400 dpi and 16 Global sensitivity is exactly the same as a sensitivity of 800 dpi and 8 Global sensitivity. The Global sensitivity is a simple factor.

    I personally changed the horizontal and vertical sensitivity to perfectly match the distance per pixel ratio. My screen is a 16/9 screen, my horizontal/vertical sensitivity are 32/18.

    Scope sensitivity is a factor applied to the Global sensitivity. 100% means 1xGlobal sensitivity, 30% means 0.3xGlobal sensitivity.

    All pro gamers play with extremely low sensitivity. The most popular seem to be 800dpi and 8 Global sensitivity.

    When I started playing Overwatch I had not play a FPS for a long time, so I copied the settings of Kephrii, #1 Widowmaker on Overbuff.com: 400dpi, 8 sens, 35 scope sens. I got use to it and now stick with it. However it required me to buy a bigger mousepad.

    The mouse you are using is not a gaming mouse, I highly encourage you to look for a gaming mouse (mouse with better sensor, cable and settable dpi).
u/Vital1ty · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Well, personally I'd recommend to not use a wrist rest at all. But~~ if I were to use one, I'd go with something like this:


Now, I'm not sure about the strafe, but my original K70 wrist rest fits on my K70 LUX. It's a little looser than the one that came with the K70 LUX, but it still works. Maybe see if you can find the replacement wrist rest from somewhere that's easy to return it to. Try it, see if it works, return if it doesn't. Not sure how I can help other than this, but good luck!

This is the one I use, and it's honestly one of the best things I've bought for my setup, absolutely love it, and $20 is super cheap as far as upgrading your battlestation goes. There's a bunch of options though, just search 'XXL mouse mat' on Amazon and check em out. IIRC there's even a PCMR one on there.

Mouse pad is so worth the money and its a mouse pad alot of pros use, Its so smooth and just perfect you can wash it easily just by putting it in the washing machine on cold setting and air drying it out (just lay it on the back of a chair or something) I would highly recommend it and its a HUGE mouse pad too.

It depends on your hand. I bought two different kinds

This one


And this one


The first one gives more height than i need so i am not using it all.

The second one levels my wrist completely. Its ergonomic heaven for my case at least. If your hand is small i recommend the second one. It isn't gel type but it has like beans inside i think buckwheat which feels better for my wrist. Its a try and error process until you find the one with the best results

I'm not going to say a wrist rest will solve all of your problems, but I have a Ducky Zero and it does sit a bit high. I got this wrist pad and it all feels a lot better. Granted, I don't have the Shine 3, but I have used it and with this pad it feels great. It may or may not solve your problems, but give it a shot as well as inverting the spacebar. I've never had that problem, I guess I hit the spacebar different than you, but we all type differently.

>playing on a glossy/ smooth wood desk

shiny or glossy surfaces could cause an issue, have you tried a mouse pad or other surface, it is good to have a surface that has bits/stripes of dark and light to get a good interference pattern


I use one of these 3M mouse pads that have a good pattern(works well with optical/laser) and is super smooth which helps accuracy https://www.amazon.com/3M-Precise-Repositionable-Adhesive-MP200PS-x/dp/B0017D5Z40

If you really like that pad, you could "resurface" it with a 3M Precise Optical Mousing surface. They're really thin and they have an adhesive backing (not permanent adhesive; it may or may not stick well to a fabric surface. It sticks great to wood and glass for me, though). So you could just stick it on and trim it to fit the shape of your favored pad. Best of both worlds?

Oh my god yes the Klipsch sound system is incredible! Since my board also has a integrated sound card they sound absolutely insane I was really impressed as I was looking for sound systems to buy online when my friend offered to sell me the Klipsch. As for the keyboard great choice! That was actually my first keyboard and I absolutely loved it! Mx browns are by far the best all round switch there is, it has the tactile feedback that blues do but not so clicky. Since the TK doesnt have a wristpad go with one of these! - http://www.amazon.com/Tenkeyless-Mechanical-Keyboards-Steelseries-Notebooks/dp/B00FPDAU6Q/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1409531997&sr=8-2&keywords=grifiti+fat+wrist+pad

It's theKazaira extended mouse pad. It's a little thicker than normal mouse pads, which is nice, and it doesn't have any logo distracting my more minimal look. I'm glad you like your set up! It's awesome for sure! :)

u/Fancy_Lad · 2 pointsr/Games

Since Razer was brought up, as it usually is, my experience with a Vespula has been good. It has two surface styles, one slick and the other with light texture. The whole thing is at a nice height for both work and play, but the mouse surface and wrist rest are separate so you can do without if preferred. The one negative (other than the name) is the wrist rest decal, which will peel off in chunks given half a chance. I don't know what they were thinking with that. Will it improve your game? Hard to say, but I think you'll find it nice to have a quality, dedicated space available when spending that much time with a mouse.

I also own a Logitech mx518 and it's been solid as well. The key feature is being able to adjust the sensitivity on the fly.

u/ggfools · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

This One is pretty excellent for the price, i've had it nearly 2 years now and the edges still aren't fraying or coming apart at all, mouse tracking is great and it takes nicely to being cleaned with some warm water and soap... really can't beat it for 12 bucks.

u/whypinto · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Thank you!

The Mousepad is the XXL Ripper LINK

I love it so much I travel with one everywhere. Great way to deploy a mobile battlestation.

My favorite feature is the mouse and keyboard are on the same surface so the keyboard doesn't keep hitting the edge of the mouse pad when I game.

u/MorbotheDiddlyDo · 2 pointsr/modernwarfare

Mouse sens is all around how much real-estate you have. Overall the rule for PC shooters is the lower sens you can get away with, the better off you'll be.


Ideally you want your middle poa (point of aim) to your left and right edges of your real estate to reflect a 180 in each direction.


Call of duty being a bit of a faster title you may have to over rotate some times so maybe give yourself a little more of a buffer zone. That being said though this is a basic idea ive applied to every shooter for the last 10 years and it's worked great.


My mousepad - as a PC gamer. I'm not sure as a console user what sort of space you have to work with so use your judgement when figuring all that out. Good luck OP!

u/Disarmer · 3 pointsr/battlestations

Not OP, but it's the Reflex Lab Gaming Pad. I have one as well and it's absolutely amazing. Thick, heavy (doesn't slide), and all edges are stitched to keep the surface from peeling up. I've even run mine through the washer/dryer 3 times now with no ill effects.


EDIT: 700+ reviews on Amazon and it has a 4.9/5 star rating. Pretty impressive.

u/Terryfrankkratos · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

>I decided I'd rather have one with MX-Blues or Browns

Browns and Blues are very different as they are tactile(browns) and clicky(Blues) not linear like reds, they are both pretty light switches as well, are you sure you don't want something slightly stiff like clears(tactile) or blacks(linear) because if you get browns or blues you might continue to accidentally holding down keys. .

>I want a full size keyboard, preferably tkl

Full size and tkl are different things, this is full size, and this is tkl

> I need it to be backlit


>I want it to have a wrist rest like the corsair k-series does.

You can buy wrist rests separately for a low cost like this or this or even this if you need it to be 1337

I currently have a large desk-size mousepad Glorious 3XL , but the mousepad I used when I played CS a lot with my ZA I just had a normal Zowie GS-R (Linked here ) Both work great, I'm sure you don't need a large 3XL that I use. A mousepad is also obviously just preference.

Check out the rests from Grifiti. They come in various lengthus and help get your hand in better position. I have a few and sometimes I even stack two to get my wrists super elevated.

u/Praefecti_Mortem · 1 pointr/battlestations

This is the mousepad i currently use. I've had it for around a year or so as of now, no fraying, its washable, and pretty nice.

The headphones i currently use are the ATH m40x's
I've had them for about the same amount of time, and they are suuuuper fuckin comfy. I can wear them all day, and no complaints. I usually am an in-ear guy, and these are definitely one of the few i enjoy that are over ear. Sound quality is great, the only thing they lack is just a bit on the bass. All in all wonderful headphones

u/Jaffythethird · 2 pointsr/battlestations

I use this SteelSeries Mousepad, and I absolutely love it 100%. It's high quality, has a great feel, and is the perfect thickness for me. For your setup, I'm actually thinking you could rock an XL pad that goes under both your mouse and keyboard. While SteelSeries does have a couple basic XL and XXL mousepads, you could always get a Corsair pad, or go and get yourself something RGB. Totally see where you're coming from in terms of not finding any that you like. I know that you can probably get one custom made, or something with a design that complements your case/controller color schemes. Just a couple ideas to get you started, but I feel like it will end up being a simple, yet highly impactful, addition to your setup.

u/jayrocs · 1 pointr/Ironsight

Not that big, have a huge table though and kind of wish I bought an even bigger one. Dimension: 16"x18"- Extra thickness (5-6mm) for comfort & great for uneven surfaces according to Amazon. The XL Heavy is what I have, kind of want to get the XXXL now so theres literally zero chance I run out of space (I never do in normal shooters but in fortnite with low sens you spin. https://www.amazon.com/Glorious-Extended-Gaming-Mouse-Mat/dp/B0164KY294?th=1

Yeah played promod and cpma tons back in the day. I don't think my sens is that slow either lol, for CSGO I use a 1 at 800 DPI and the 2.8 here is much faster than that.

u/free_mustacherides · 2 pointsr/gaming

I used this keyboard for a while till something got spilled on it :(. Very good keyboard especially when you use This wrist rest. Hope that helps! also I prefer brown switches. come check out /r/MechanicalKeyboards ! Its a good community.

u/uzuhl · 2 pointsr/KillYourConsole

To add about the wrist pad, get one that's about the height of your keyboard so your wrists won't fall into a weird angle causing stress, which I've noticed a lot of the stock wristpads that come with keyboards do cause your wrists to do.This one is pretty good. I got it on sale for about $6.

Another good one is this. They both sit about as high as a standard keyboard so you won't be causing any strain on your wrists.

A mouse-pad with a cushion may also help you, like this. It all comes down to preference though, as I like flat, large mousepads, but these can help reduce strain and keep your wrist straight.

u/alose · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Depends on what material you want:

  • Grifiti

  • Glorious PC Gaming Race

    Those are probably the best value. Honestly, anything about an inch thick will work fine. You could make your own from a 1x4 pine board.
u/cf0ed2aa-bdf5-4ef6-a · 5 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Sure, bought this one for the keyboard and this one for the mouse

They are pretty solid but still pretty soft and have a kind of neoprene feel to them. As I said above I only had them for about a day now but I like them so far.

u/osuSero · 1 pointr/osugame

Can't recommend it at all. Material felt cheap and it didn't last long.


This one is pretty nice. You won't be using the wrist rest anyway (restricts movement) that you'd get with the other one, so all in all you save money and get a more responsive mousepad that will last you longer.

I have dual sticks, not have a HOTAS, but I think my setup is still relevant.

I've been toying with the idea of making fold-away holders for my sticks that attach to my chair but it's probably a pipe-dream. I use my computer and desk mainly for work... so any solution has to be removable or tucked away for non-playtime. But until then... this is how I do it:

A year or so ago, someone on this sub suggested Scotch Restickable Dots. I attach 3-4 to the base of each stick and plant them firmly on the mouse pad. I also have many under the mouse pad to keep it secured to the desk top.

Works well for me. I simply pick up the sticks and put them off to the side when I'm done. I remove the Dots from the bases and put them on top of the bases to keep them from sticking to the desk elsewhere. I also cover my sticks when not in use (I have cats)... so the Dots remain fairly clean.

Oh, and the Dots are washable... so you can "refresh" them if they loose their stickiness.

u/aLedade · 1 pointr/FortniteCompetitive

Sure thing. I would look into getting a cheap larger mouse pad if you’re committed.

Employing your whole arm will make it much easier to make those minute flicks. Instead of trying to only move your mouse half centimeter you have 3 or more to work with.

u/Odetodistractions · 8 pointsr/buildapc

I hightly recommend the CM Quickfire Rapid to anyone knew to the mechanical keyboard world. They are built very well. They don't go for the 'Gamer' look and just offer a solid keyboard. They are available from most big retailers (most high level mechs are not). They offer a lot of the perks of premium mech boards, without the higher price as you can often find them for pretty cheap ($50 - $80). The only real downside to them, is the key caps. They are pretty cheap, but odds are if you're buying a mechanical keyboard, you plan on customizing them anyways. Which the QFR lends itself very well to. Some keyboards (like the K65) have some keys that are not standard size. This makes it a little more difficult to customize.

Need a wrist wrest? Look no further than the Griffiti Tenkeyless. It may fray a little, but support is very good and it's comfy. As opposed to other brands that offer cheap plasic ones.

u/nuplsstahp · 1 pointr/ultrawidemasterrace

Oh haha, that makes more sense.

This is the one - great for the price, it has braided edges, decently thick, and the surface is really nice. It's half the price of some bigger brands which don't even have the stitched edge.

I don't like the idea of the full hand case. I figure with the Classic case I can add wrist rests if I want them. Like these

I absolutely love mine, I can't stand normal staggered keyboard layouts at all anymore. Benefit to the classic case is my ergo hook is way more portable for traveling.

I will say I don't like the layered sheets style case at all. I would prefer an injection molded case for it to be more compact. If I ever get a 3D printer the first thing I'm doing with it is a compact case for my ergo dox.

u/KR0SSED0UT · 2 pointsr/battlestations

This is the keyboard mat, this is the case.

I wouldn't reccomend the 400C in any variant, and the 460x/570x don't have a great internal design either. They're not really very easy to cable manage in, the radiator support is extremely limited (you can realistically can't fit a 360mm in without removing the mechanical drive bay entirely. S340 Elite wasn't much better, no top radiator support is far from ideal.

I'd take a look at something like the Define R6 in white. Doesn't have the front glass but has much better cable routing and options for HDDs to be installed. All white version won't be out until 3/7/18 but it might be worth it from what I've seen.

u/Icy_Cantaloupe · 1 pointr/OutreachHPG

The bigger the better. It isn't strictly necessary with a laser mouse, but it helps to demonstrate the optimal configuration.

Also, the 2 feet part isn't strictly necessary for MWO, since it limits pitch so much already, but it helps tremendously for other games that require more vertical movement.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0794WBPHK/ (yes, I know this item isn't quite 2'x3', I may have been exaggerating slightly.)

u/Tainen · 12 pointsr/battlestations

That would be the razer Vespula. Spendy but I really like it a lot. It's got a two layer system with a rubberized mat underneath, and the mouse surface sits on top, so it doesn't move around at all, and provides a really nice anchor point for your wrist (the wrist rest is attached to the rubberized layer).

u/zyck_titan · 1 pointr/buildapc

A wrist rest keeps me comfortable when I'm using the computer for extended periods of time.

I also use these headphone holders, they are cheap and mount with doublesided tape, and they'll hold just about any headphones you can find.

Another thing that many people don't think about, but can make a massive difference, is monitor placement. VESA Arm mounts are great for having monitors placed where you want them, while also letting you shift them around when you need to.

I own a SteelSeries Sensei and I want a Razer Vespula Dual-Sided Gaming Mouse Mat and I want a Corsair Vengeance K70 Black Cherry MX Brown (Though it comes with Red and Blue switches as well).

I can recommended the SteelSeries Sensei, it is one of the best gaming mice I have ever owned. Don't let anybody fool you, nobody needs 8200dpi (coughcoughRazercoughcough). The average top-tier professional gamer uses their mouse at an average of 3200 dpi. Not even considering the fact that dpi is not even a good measure of mouse movement. That being said... the Sensei feels great as long as you have a palm style holding. If you have a claw-grip style of holding your mouse, I recommend the RAT7 or RAT9, avoid the RAT5 it's awful.

That looks like a low priced knock-off of this Perixx DX-2000 XXL Mouse Pad. Same size, thickness, and even the seems around the edge are stitched similarly.

I would argue that the extended size Perixx is one of the best looking pads around. Certainly better than that god awful Razer pad.

As for the quality, I have the "Large" version, which is quite a nice pad. Feels good, there isnt any extra resistance when moving the mouse, nor is there too little resistance. It's got the same clean look. The only real downside I have with it, is that it rather minimally slides around on my desk as I have it positioned. Although a simple readjustment and that problem is remedied. The huge extended size one I doubt would have that issue, seeing as it is massive and should get stuck in place.

u/srsbsnsman · 1 pointr/techsupport

How rough is your desk? Try using your mouse without the pad to see if it works properly.

The new mouse pad is obviously a problem, so you're going to need to replace it with something.

this mouse pad claims to be specifically for laser mice. The reviews are pretty positive too.

if you don't want to buy a new mousepad, you could just lay a piece of paper over it or your desk, or you could use cloth if you want something more comfortable.

The one in the pictures is the XTrac Ripper XXL, it's 36" x 18" and I like it, the edges aren't the best though imo. It's a solid mouse pad but they could definitely use some work on the edges.

I ordered the Glorious XXL Extended Gaming Mouse Mat which will get here Friday. It's also 36" x 18" but the edges have a stitching of some sort so I believe it will hold up much better.

a 1200 DPI mouse and a 9x12 mousepad can do wonders. it can also, depending on the material, be a good surface to place keys, coins or other stuff. help keep the desk scratch free.

u/anselben · 1 pointr/pcgaming

I love my RipperXXL. Some people might not like the size of it, but it's not expensive and so far has served me wonderfully.

They have smaller ones also.


u/Riccokane · 1 pointr/battlestations

This one.


Its a bit cheap, but so far holding up alright. The stitching on the edges is definitely going to give soon. Not sure I can recommend it for the long term, but for $16 10-15 bucks, I'll be OK if it lasts a few months and then needs replacing.

u/cweagans · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

I have the same board. It's pretty decent! If you're itching to upgrade some things, I recommend these purchases:

If you're just looking for a comfortable wrist rest I'll shout out Grifiti wrist rests. Quality stuff, and it feels very good. Amazon has you covered. Different colors and sizes also available. That wrist rest is thick, and fits the CM case dimensions well.

u/kxcoty05 · 1 pointr/gaming

If you have a mouse pad that you are dead set on, then please ignore, but I switched to one of these, and I feel it is superior to all of the foam mouse pads running around. I'm not a hard-core gamer though…


This would remove the need to inset it.

Things I really liked for my desk: legs with casters, a foot rest, a sit-stand option for when I want to work.. a trash bin?

u/Slammed6MT · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Honestly I can't remember. Bought on Amazon a while back, I'll see if I can find the link. It's supposed to be longer, but I cut a good 7-8 inches of so it would fit in my old desks keyboard tray.

Edit: [Found it!] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00WY1BMDM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_OJWgzbP4JDBDB)

u/Strottinglemon · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

>I can't rest the top of my writst/start of palm on anything

Get a wrist rest, there's all sorts of options out there.

>The keys feel like they got a sort of chrome(?) finish to them. It's a really strange feeling and sometimes when I type my fingers make a tiny squeaking noise because I move my fingers from one key to another before the first key is back all the way up.

That's probably just the stock UV coated keycaps. They're the cheapest to manufacture but also don't feel all that great. You might look into buying some aftermarket non-coated ABS or PBT keycaps.

u/Yvese · 2 pointsr/GameDeals

Depends what size you want. I'd just look on Amazon and check out the ones with the most reviews and just go from there. I'm personally using this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GB0IFXM?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_1&smid=A313151JUUD897

$20 for a big mousepad. You can't go wrong really. Far better value than anything razer sells which is all overpriced.

u/Metaldrake · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

I'd actually recommend you get a separate wrist rest, that way you have your choice of material(such as wood or foam ones), and separate wrist rests are usually better than the ones on stock keyboards like the K70. I've had one before and the wrist rest was kinda meh.

u/tigojones · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Yeah, you can buy separate wrist wrests. A popular and inexpensive one would be the Grifiti Fat 14 (generally around $15).

Do you need dedicated media keys? As many TKLs use media keys built into other keys and are accessible through key combinations (like my QFR/Novatouch use Fn+F5-F12 for volume and media).

u/torsoreaper · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Thanks for the responses. Would have gone Steelseries QCK min but wanted something even thinner. Found a super cheap 3m "adhesive" mousepad that sticks to your laptop lid.


u/chickxbuffet · 7 pointsr/battlestations

XTrac Ripper XXL. I recommend it very much! Soft and slides the mouse perfectly! You can get it on Amazon

Honestly great mat for $20 and just another element of rgb

u/EZaces · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Razer Vespula, come with a cushion for your rest, but I like it better without it.


u/versedguardian · 1 pointr/battlestations

Glorious PC Gaming Race brand. Amazon Link I recommend them!

u/x_liferuiner · 2 pointsr/Corsair

You may find this a little more suitable. It's not a full length but it is a tad more ergonomic. I bought it for the same reason you mentioned though I just use no wrist wrest now. There is also this which doesn't attach to the keyboard itself but it still a pretty comfortable option. I've also used these and if I had choose between the stock wrist wrest, the "FPS" wrest, or the foam one, I'd probably choose the foam.

u/FallenAdvocate · 1 pointr/buildapc

I don't have experience with that exact one, but I have this one, which I paid $20 for in February, and I love it. Don't know why the price has gone up so much though.

u/CaselxASD · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

I got mine from Amazon It's a great looking mat, I just wish it was thicker

u/Cerillion · 7 pointsr/osugame

the keyboard is the anne pro rgb which comes with gateron (smoother than cherry xm) reds, browns or blues which i got from this site :http://www.banggood.com/APP-Control-Anne-PRO-Blue-Red-Switch-RGB-Bluetooth-Mechanical-Gaming-Keyboard-p-1064055.html?rmmds=search (use the code ANNEPRO for additional price reduction)

as for the mousepad it's the glorious pc gaming extended mousepad which comes in all sorts of sizes and shapes https://www.amazon.com/Glorious-3XL-Extended-Gaming-Mouse/dp/B0164KY294

if you have any questions about hardware or peripherals, i've used a ton of different mice and mousepads from my cs:go global days and alot of different keyboards for osu!, so i'm quite knowledgeable ;)

u/bartabbed · 1 pointr/battlestations

Absolutely, looks like it's on a lightning deal on Amazon for $21 - Good Timing!

I got this while it was a lightning deal. Not a high end brand or anything, but the purple lighting looks great with the rest of my set-up.

u/kaokao1215 · 3 pointsr/MouseReview

The QCK limited editions are very slick, and much faster than the regular QCK.

If you want a mousepad that is similar to the regular QCK, but is stitched, take a look at the Glorious Pads. https://www.amazon.com/Glorious-Heavy-Gaming-Mouse-Mat/dp/B00NOD04CY?th=1

All are well known issues. Read the reviews on Amazon:

Glue issue on the Orbweaver: http://www.amazon.com/Razer-Orbweaver-Mechanical-Gaming-Keypad/product-reviews/B00B1N07QM

Double click on the Nagas: just Google this. It's all over the place.

I don't need to break this shit. It's happy breaking itself.

u/IconicNoseProjection · 1 pointr/GlobalOffensive

(1) to conserve velocity from one ramp to another you want to align yourself with the ramp before actually touching the ramp (smooth movements, top view btw)

(2) high sens AND/OR fast lifting AND/OR large mousepad (this is the largest I could find) (Edit: Id recommend a turnbind anyway)

(3) It is completely normal to take a looong time to get good at a level/stage (Ive spend hours on a single stage of surf_omnific)

u/geniphur · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Congrats on your internship!

Working all day at a computer means it would be nice to have a wrist pad in the office.

u/mdd86 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace


Razer pad with wrist rest. I just got it about a week ago and frankly I love this thing. It doesn't make playing the games any easier but I have noticed I can play for longer.

u/Squints753 · 5 pointsr/RedditBrigade

CRPG will help with timing and tactics, although the speed of combat may be different than in NW. It uses your browser to keep track of your stats and items... at least it did back when I played.

Honestly, the best upgrade for me was buying a mouse surface. I had a crappy old mousepad and my mouse couldn't move that quickly on it, and now I have one of these http://www.amazon.com/3M-Precise-Optical-Mousing-MP200PS/dp/B0017D5Z40/

I could help you with melee before one of the battles.

u/Szteto_Anztian · 2 pointsr/battlestations

this is the best I could find in Canada, though if you're located in the US, this is probably better because it has no branding at all.

u/_thyroidgland · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Thanks! I got the mousepad off of Amazon. It's a bit excessive but I really like having it span my desk.


u/fifty2imeanfifty4 · 1 pointr/battlestations

Here on Amazon. I like it because the edges are stitched. It is really well made and has held up really well.

u/methologic · 2 pointsr/buildapc

He currently has a 1TB SSHD. This is an HDD that has a very small amount of very fast cache. The HDD identifies your most used files and puts those files on this cache.

There are 3 main types of storage:

  1. HDD(Hard Disk Drive) - Cheapest per amount of storage, but also the slowest.

  2. SSHD(Solid State Hybrid Drive) - For most applications it is just as slow as your regular HDD, but for your most used applications like your web browser, it will be super fast.

  3. SSD(Solid State Drive) - By far faster than either of the previous 2. Also consumes less power, makes less noise, and is supposed to last longer.

    If your brother is not super tech savy, then I wouldn't necessarily recommend this option since it requires him to reinstall his operating system and this can be problematic if he isn't familiar with the process.

    A Mechanical Keyboard, Oversized Mouse Mat, Mouse like the Logitech G502, may be an easier and less stressful option.
u/jemoederaardappel · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Hello chrisvstherock

I`m building a white setup myself and i have a white mousepad.

It is really practical and matches a white keyboard well.

They show dirt but its easy to get rid off. Just use a wet towel.

The white stays white no doubt about it. I have had it for half a year and it sill looks like new.

I have a https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NOCZB78/ref=twister_B07C16PD4N?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 wich is what i based my answers about.

Hope this helped.

u/blowjustinup · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I'd suggest one of these:

I have the tenkeyless version and it's amazing. I'm going to be taking the original wrist rest off my K70 and get the larger grifiti pad to use instead.

u/my__name__is · 1 pointr/gadgets

For those that game on their PC, these two simple items will make a world of difference:

High DPI gaming mouse http://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00AAQRNQ8/ref=cm_sw_r_udp_awd_qjmYtb1MTCV3X

And a mat to get the best out of your mouse http://www.amazon.ca/dp/B002J9G5AE/ref=cm_sw_r_udp_awd_ohmYtb182T30D

You'd be surprised how much difference they make.

u/shadytransactor · 2 pointsr/MouseReview

I like the Razer Vespula

It's hard top pad, dual sided and includes a wrist pad. Not as gaudy as most of the Razer line either. Also pretty cheap for what it is.

Mousemat is Glorious Extended White Gaming... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NOCZB78?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

As for how deep the desk is im not sure, a large space is taken up by my monitors

I had one, the top layer started peeling off at the bottom of the pad where my wrist was. Now I have one of these and I love it.

No reason in particular I just kind of liked it over there.

As for the desk mat I got it off amazon World Map Desk Mat its actually a lot nicer than I thought it was going to be.

u/ItalicMouse13 · 1 pointr/battlestations

The mousepad? It's a fairly cheap one that my gf got me for X-mas.


It's really good quality for the price and the side connecting micro usb for power makes it easy to hide and route on the side of the desk.
