If you tend to be hard on your mice and keyboards it seems a waste to invest in a $100 device which will end up dead or at least severely injured within a few months.  Cooler Master has come up with a package that just might appeal to you, the $30 Devastator II keyboard and mouse combo.  The mouse has an optical sensor with 1000, 1600 and 2000 DPI levels and six buttons, including the sensitivity adjustment button.  The keyboard is backlit and the  "mem-chanical" switches Cooler Master uses are Cherry MX compatible so you can swap keycaps if you are so inclined.  Drop by Hardware Canucks for a closer look.

I have these but don't use the keyboard because for some reason it doesn't light up when I use Linux. The mouse I pretty good for being so cheap.

I was having the same problem. I would just enter "xset led on" in a command line. Worked like a charm.

And here I was hoping it was because you take pity on poor folk like me that have little disposable income left after our wives and children take their turn at the bank account. ;)

"TT esports" (Thermal Take) has done a similar $30 backlit keyboard/gaming mouse combo, their "Commander" series.

Comparison review between these (and any other direct competitors) would be interesting. All of your readers building budget gaming systems would probably want to know the best bargain combo.
