So for mouse I am thinking Razer Copperhead with Razer Mantis Pad. Any recommendations on keyboard, and why? I used to game on old keyboard from 486 days. I tried new ones and I found keys to be mushy, and not very responsive.

I have a Saitek Gaming Keyboard and I have to say it's probably the best one I've used. It holds up well in terms of durability, plus it's quite comfortable and practical. It even came with a gamepad which you can bind key macros to.

There is a newer version available IIRC. I have the old '05 model.

I recently started using the Copperhead mouse and I like it for its size, responsiveness and design. As for keyboards, I'm using the Saitek Eclipse gaming keyboard. The keys have a solid feel and are responsive, but if you have larger fingers you might find that the keys are too close together or too small for FPS gaming.

My current keyboard is an Accuratus ACK-295 , and I'm quite happy with it since 1998, except that some letters are no more visible (not a problem to me, but I'm not the only user ...). So I'm planning to buy the newer "Accuratus 260" ( links : white, black).

If you want to keep a standard keyboard (without annoying "Power" key etc...) , I think it's the one I'd recommend, for I'm really satisfied of this brand.

MX510 by Logitech, and its various descendants, is the most ergonomic mouse I have ever had the privilege of grasping. Not only that, but it has five buttons. Get one if you can. As for your keyboard, whatever feels best for you really. I use an ergonomic keyboard (the ones that are slightly bent in the middle), which some people can't grasp but I personally can't live without - my fingers ache if I use a normal keyboard for prolonged periods. This one is a Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000, which is great not only because of the variety of extra keys it has, and its fairly durable feel, but also because it has a very comfortable cushioned wrist rest built-in. But as I said, it's entirely up to you - head down to your local PC store and try a few out for size. The same goes for mice, actually. As for dedicated 'gaming' mice and keyboards, they're pure gimmick as far as I'm concerned. Ordinary peripherals will work just fine, and will usually cost you less and work more reliably with a wider variety of software to boot. Mice with more than three buttons are, of course, recommended for gaming, but even they are not required. So long as it has a scroll wheel, you're alright.

Logitech MX1000, wireless mouse, as Mr.matt said, it's a nice mouse, good grip, lots of buttons, other then a good mouse, that's it, I'm using a plain jane keyboard by Sven, a "slim 303" model, I like the tight grouping of keys on standard keyboards, I find it akward to type on more "Ergonomic" keyboards.
