reminds me somewhat of the Saitek Cyborg (PM42) gaming mouse



For $80 its not bad, but theres no knowing how well the laser on it performs and stuff. otherwise a Logitech G500 is cheaper and an awesome mouse

I used to have a Genius 5.1 soundcard too i bought for £5 No idea what happened to it but it worked pretty well.

Think i eventually sold it off and got a Creative Audigy ZS 2

Let me guess: "For the serious, Hardcore gamer" YEAH BRO! My God, PC gaming peripherals are so gaudy. It's like the manufactures are stuck in some late '80s movie. This overpriced crap is why the PC gaming market can never gain ground to the consoles. I chuckle every time I see an extravagant GPU box. Pretty soon though, these aging man-children will run out of their parents money.

But for now... DEATH KILLER XTREME 9000!!!!
