I'm getting a desktop computer for my birthday, and I was wondering what brands/models were good for specific pieces of hardware. For example, I hear Razer is the best for mice. Also, I'm going to be building my desktop, so I'd also like input on things like video cards, monitors, etc etc. Thank you!

What's your budget? Also, no Razer is best for nothing. They make cheap crap that breaks.

I don't know what your experience with Razor has been, but thusfar mine has worked perfectly.

Then again, you are the god of technology, so what do I know.

I know nothing about this stuff, so have Jack Black as an octagon dancing towards Nicholas Cage and Adam Sandler instead.

I'd agree with Keroro, my experiences with Razer have been great. I do know they have a reputation though, so I wouldn't recommend a razer product, although the Vespula is a good mouse pad.

It's hard to fuck up a mouse pad. 

 

Although, I would never buy one because I'm perfectly content with my $1 mouse pad.

Windows 7 cheaper more reliable and less annoying to use

Not more reliable, and once you get used to w8.1 it's just as easy to use. Also, w7 isn't any cheaper.

I tried 8.1 for a week and it was really annoying and dumbed down 

Id rather stick with the simple desktop and taskbar 

Oh and that thing where you move your mouse to right of the screen and a window pops up really annoyed me the most

I got used to 8.1 on the 2nd day of using it. Once you know how to use it, it is pretty simple to use and it is better to stay on top of the new technology than be outdated if there is not something big keeping you away from it.

For mice and headsets, check out Corsair. For mousepads check out Perixx. If you want a mechanical keyboard, check out Cooler Master.

Corsair headsets are mediocre at best. Kingston HyperX Clouds 1/2 are definitely the best headsets (for the money). Although, for a bit more you can get something like an ATH M20x and mod mic4.0, which is all around better. 

 

For mice: Logitech, Minoix, and Corsair. 

For Keyboards: Corsair, Cooler Master, Ducky, Das Keyboard, filco, and a whole bunch of others -- although cooler master/corsair are usually the cheapest options (although, if you're not going for a mechanical keyboard -- which with a $600 computer is questionable -- something like a Cooler Master Devastator is pretty much the best option).
