You may recall the K90 from our earlier coverage of it. The is one of the most beautiful keyboards around, and it's loaded with enthusiast-friendly features. 18 programmable macro keys sit to the left, clusters of media keys line the top edge, and the backlight has three brightness settings. Cherry MX red mechanical switches are used for most of the keys, although rubber domes anchor the paging block and function keys. Asking price: $125 online.
Our winner will also receive the Vengeance M90 mouse. This wired rodent is designed primarily for RTS and MMO games, and it has the button payload to prove it. Among the 15 buttons, nine can be linked to programmable macros. There's a high-DPI optical sensor with on-the-fly sensitivity adjustment, of course, and the scroll wheel is nice and chunky. Like the K90 keyboard, the M90 mouse is built on a sturdy aluminum base. You can find it online for about $70.
