    Hi guys, as the title says, I just wondered what some of your favourite gadgets for PC gaming are. I am a big fan of Razer; I have a Razer Hydra and have been considering getting the Razer Tartarus in the summer (hopefully I have time to game then); http://www.razerzone.com/gb-en/gaming-keyboards-keypads/razer-tartarus/

    What do you guys use and for what sort of games.

    My list:

    Razer Hydra: FPS games, FPS-RPG hybrids.
    K/B + Razer Mamba: RPGs, RTS.
    GFWL pad: Action adventure, third person shooters, sports games, platformers etc
    Ferrari F430 Wheel: Racing games.
    Saitek F.L.Y. 5 flight stick: Flight sims, Flying in BF3 etc

    Planned in next year or so:

    Razer Tarturus: RPGs (replace keyboard)
    Dell 29in monitor (maybe lol)
    Razer Megalodoon headphones
    Some sort of 5.1 speakers

    Never tried one of those out, but it sure looks interesting.

    Tartarus or Hydra? If it is the Hydra, I recommend it, it isn't for everyone but it has brought the fun back to FPS games for me

    Haha cool, yeh they look interesting, I reckon it would work well for RPG games without loads of shortkeys; Mass Effect etc

    i love the dualshock controllers for fighting (KOF XIII =D) /adventure/platform games on pc.

    I have the dualshock 2, 3 and now dualshock 4, DS4 is freaking awesome (plug&play no need for tricky drivers like the DS3)
    I also have a costum badass arcade stick with professional sanwa parts for fighting games and nostalgia arcade feel, but nowdays i dont even use it :\

    I love the Dualshock controllers and i dont even have a playstation :)

    Xbox 360 controller for use with any PC game that supports it. I generally never use the M&K unless it's a MP-fps (like BF4).

    Only ones i use are Track IR for Simulations, MS FFB2 Flightstick for Simulations like ROF and Falcon BMS.

    Only other thing i use is the Blissbox which enables me to use any controller in my PC from any gaming console or computer over the last 30 years, so it feels authentic.

    I use M&K for FPS and RTS games. For all other games, I use a 360 controller.
