Getting both of these puppies would definitely go some way in making sure that your overall gaming experience is enhanced and complemented, so much so it might be rather difficult to give any more excuses about poor and lousy hardware whenever you lose the next online match against a human opponent.

The keyboard will also come with 6 programmable gaming keys and 18 programmable functions that can be accessed via a trio of separate banks which can be stored in the keyboard’s internal memory.
