So I need a keyboard and mouse for gaming, and altogether I want the price to be less than 110 dollars. I've seen so many conflicting reviews. Any suggestions?

Not very sure about the keyboard. It's not mechanical.

The mouse is one of the best.

yayz. How are the keys on the K55? (I don't care that much about it, but it should be better than my 6 dollar 14 year old crappy keyboard lel)

They are membrane IIRC, so meh probably.

I don't own it so I can't say.

You can have a look at these mechanical ones too.

Alright, thank you so much!

I ended up going with the k55 because it has stellar reviews across the board, and is #1 in Gaming Keyboards on Amazon

The best budget mouse I have ever seen is the Hiraliy F300. It has a phenomenal sensor and great ergonomics. The RGB look nice too.

As for the keyboard, if you are okay with clickey keys the Hcman mechanical ($30) is a nice keyboard (a bit loud).

Oh, I should mention the prices:

Hiraliy F300 - ~$15
Hcman - ~$30

Ah. I found a 40 dollar keyboard by HAVIT which has real Cherry MX Brown key switches and light blue backlighting which is customizable in the BIOS

BIOS customizable keyboard? That's neat.

Look into the mouse if you haven't found one yet. I have been extremely impressed.
