    Hi, as above said I need new keyboard, mouse, mat and mic

    I have Logitech LX710 wireless setup (keyboard and mouse) which are fantastic+wireless, but lack of backlight is a con as I am near pc during nights!
    (table lamp isn't an option)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SO I WANT TO BUY:

    Keyboard: with backlight, gaming futures..

    Option:MICROSOFT SIDEWINDER X6- has backlight and I like that numpad removes, as I do not use it, saves space...someone got it?
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Mouse: WOULD LIKE WIRELESS, but it's ok if wired...

    Option: Razer Diamondback 3G Frost Blue 1800dpi Gaming Mouse
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    also, want gaming mat:
    as going to have big pc table soon, Large mat can be offered
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    and last one:

    My friend is singer: rap/soul ... he wants to buy microphone for home recording...can someone recommend one?
    £100 - budget!

    Thanks

    microphone for home recording: shure sm58, or beta 57 (beta is a bit of an all rounder, 58 is what most stage singers use). - they're around 70-100 quid

    they're usually XLR or jack connections, XLR and TRS (tip ring sleeve) jack providing balanced lines, TS (tip sleeve) jacks providing unbalanced (noise conductive) lines. you'd need a decent external soundcard for it, M-Audio or Novation etc are decent comanies that provide the necessary connectivity. Standard pc soundcards and onboard sound won't offer you these types of connection, and would generally not do as good a job as a decent external soundcard would anyway
