I know, cheapest one I found was around $180. I’ve looked into the setups like the G13 but….I love these large WASD buttons. My fingers get cramped when I use the other keys.

BTW you may want this. The Fang is what got me hooked on the Merc Stealth. Cheaper too.

I am a lefty as well. The best we can hope for is “ambidextrous” units. I have been using this for the last 6-7 years. I have 2 of them and they no longer make them. I live in constant fear of the day the two of them inevitably break.

I don’t understand why they don’t create a peripheral for those types of games on a console. It’s capable of it and other genres have sold specific peripherals (plastic instruments and steering wheels).

I use the Fang Gamepad when playing MMOs on my laptop instead of plugging in a full keyboard or using the rather crappy laptop keyboard. Something like this could be used on consoles as well.

For RTS I think the PS3 Move would be a good match. RUSE takes advantage of this but I have not played it. Can’t see that working with kinect though.

Interface devices are quite subjective, but here’s a bit about what I use.

  • Keyboard – the best “bang for my buck” I’ve achieved in gaming (except for specialized controllers like a force-feedback wheel and flight system) came from purchasing an Ideazon Fang. This specific product is now discontinued, but there are similar offerings from Logitech and Razer, perhaps others. Primarily I bought the Fang for improved ergonomics – a standard keyboard wasn’t designed for playing games, and using the Fang is far more comfortable. A device like the Fang also provides more buttons in more appropriate locations – not only is hitting hotkeys more comfortable, but you don’t have to hunt for them.

  • Audio – I prefer to use a set of standard headphones and a lapel mic. It’s less convenient, but offers a few advantages to a headset. Headsets are notoriously flimsy and either come with poor mics or are overpriced. If something breaks you can replace just the headphones or just the mic. I use a Plantronics lapel mic that was about $20 and the quality is excellent.

  • Video card – the best bang for your buck is around the $150 level, with something like an HD6870. What card are you using now? Tom’s Hardware regularly updates a guide for the best video cards for the money, it’s a good place to start. The sky’s the limit here – performance scales very well up to maybe the $250-300 price range, past that you’ll see diminishing returns. If you’re using a single display of average size, you probably don’t need to spend more than $150-200 for a great experience. /r/BuildAPC is a great resource for this sort of thing.
