ASUS Maximus VI Gene Socket LGA 1150 mATX

As Psyrus mentioned, the G600 is specifically made for MMOs, it's unwieldy on the pointer finger (gun trigger) for first person shooters.
I love Logitech mouse products, so for current generation check out the G500S, that is G500S, not the G500, ... it's the evolution and near identical replacement of the Logitech MX518 .

And yeah, the ASUS Maximus VI motherboards have superior onboard audio chipsets. NO need for discrete audio card.

Not sure what your audio setup is, but something like a USB surround sound headset (eg the Logitech G35) could be used as an alternative to onboard audio.

In regards to the mouse, I'm currently using the Logitech G9X - and it's one of the best products I have ever bought. Logitech doesn't make it any longer, but they do make what I believe is its successor, the G500S, which Littoralis recommended above. I've heard good things about the Corsair M65, too. Gotta love Corsair.

I'd highly recommend a SSD. A HDD is by far the weakest link in your list. Some of the other stuff could be argued that it is not a good price to performance ratio, but the SSD is a must, even if its a smallish SSD for the O/S with the HDD for programs/storage.

Best line yet...

There are places you can read up a little more on the motherboard/sound card topic if you want.

I am using Microsoft wireless mouse (I don't remember what is it's model). I paid it 10$ and I don't have a problem when I playing. If you ask me, an average mouse and keyboard is useful to play and cheaper.

This.

"gaming mouse" is a marketing term really (I'm studying product engineering, 90% of the products don't do what they're advertised to do, design and branding shapes the )

Of course, we should not exclude that a "gaming mouse" could in some cases be more comfortable to play for a specific user.

But please, don't buy it just because it's has a "gaming" prefix.
Go into local shops, close your eyes and feel what mouse is comfortable for you.


And again, I feel bad for forcing my opinion into another person, but if you have the money to spend (won the lottery, taxes, etc..) you can do what you want.

I even think it would be much easier for you to just buy a pre-build computer, since building your own computer is most of the times done out of necessity or not willing to spend that much money on a computer that has lots of useless stuff on it.

You have a very good point Careless. I was thinking about a pre-built computer but they seem to be very expensive.

I like a gaming mouse as there are some extra programmable buttons on it (I play Simulator and FPS games).

I actually use DPI switches fairly often on my mouse (more than enough to justify them). Double thumb buttons are an absolute must.

Yeah I love my Logitech G500. It really is preference between all the models they have. Just don't get a mouse with 9000 buttons, it isn't necessary. I have like 3 or 4 on mine. Really nice using one of them as a Teamspeak talk button.
