Cyber Monday gaming mouse and keyboard deals are still live, closing out the November deals season with a bang. Indeed, it's a good time to upgrade how you interface with your gaming PC. Unlike a CPU or graphics card these accessories can't grant you a higher frame rate, but they can make every single interaction with your PC a nicer experience.

The best gaming keyboards and gaming mice can really transform your setup, and we're not just talking about some flashy LEDs. New mice are getting super light, and their polling rates are on the rise, which can improve your accuracy in competitive shooters (or, well, at least guarantee that whatever goes wrong is your fault, not the mouse's). Mechanical keyboards are now easy to get and available from every brand under the sun, so if you're still rocking a cheap board, then it's well worth treating your fingers to an upgrade.

We've focused on gaming keyboards and mice that are actually quality options here, and are on sale significantly below their usual prices. So below you'll find only the best peripherals from brands like Corsair, Logitech, Razer, Roccat, and Das Keyboards

With Cyber Monday now coming to a close, these are likely the best deals you're going to see for the rest of the year. Some may last throughout the week, but if you're eyeing a particular board or a fancy new wireless mouse, it may not have long left.

Drop CTRL mechanical keyboard | Hot Swappable switches | Tenkeyless | Per-key RGB | $200

Drop CTRL mechanical keyboard | Hot Swappable switches | Tenkeyless | Per-key RGB | $200 $149 at Drop
The Drop CTRL is a weighty, premium-feeling keyboard with one major selling point: you can pull out every switch and replace them with whatever you choose. Start with Drop's Halo switches, then try out a set of MX Cherry Browns or Holy Pandas. A great way to ease your way into the wider world of mech keyboards.

Logitech G915

Logitech G915 wireless mechanical gaming keyboard | Tactile | Black | $249.99 $199.99 at Amazon (save $50)
Our main problems with this keyboard is the price, so this deal is a welcome one. It's still not cheap, but you'll feel the benefit for the extra cash for years to come as you WASD through virtual worlds with greater comfort and control.

Corsair K100 RGB Optical

Corsair K100 | Optical Mechanical linear switch | 4K Hz polling rate | Per-key RGB | $229.99 $179.99 at Amazon (save $50)
Top of our best gaming keyboards, this opto-mechanical wonder is super responsive, and nicely premium when it comes to build quality. For under $100 it's certainly worth a look, though you'll have to get both Elgato and iCue softwares to make it work. Still, the only other downside was the price. Not so much right now.

EVGA Z20 | Optical Mechanical linear switch | 4K Hz polling rate | Per-key RGB lighting | $174.99

EVGA Z20 | Optical Mechanical linear switch | 4K Hz polling rate | Per-key RGB lighting | $174.99 $64.99 at Newegg (save $110)
This EVGA keyboard is a bit of a steal at that price, as it's one of the more recent arrivals from the company and fully mechanical. That said, it has tracked at this price for a few months on Amazon, but that doesn't make it any less of a deal today if you're in the market.

Logitech G413

Logitech G413 | Mechanical Romer-G switch | USB Passthrough | $89.99 $59.99 at Amazon (save $30)
Logitech has put together a very safe keyboard in the G413, and one we've come to appreciate for its simplicity and function. It's mechanical, using Logitech's own Romer-G switches, and is built to last. Only thing is it's available with red lighting and not RGB. I know that'll be a dealbreaker for some, but for a mechanical keyboard it's great value.

Razer Huntsman V2 Analog | Opto-mechanical | $199.99

Razer Huntsman V2 Analog | Opto-mechanical | $199.99 $149.99 at Amazon (Save $50)
Okay, so it's a refurbished keyboard, but this is very cheap for a rather supreme gaming keyboard so it's worth checking out. Optical switches make it faster than your average mechanical board, and you get a wrist rest as well. Not too shabby.

Havit RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Havit mechanical keyboard | Red silent | $59.99 $42.99 at Amazon (Save $17)
A 60% keyboard with boatloads of style, and PBT keycaps. We don't know these red key switches it's touting, but they're rated at 50 million keypresses. And silent ones too, so none of that clicky-clacky nonsense.

Logitech G305 Lightspeed | 12,000 DPI | Wireless | 250h Battery Life | 6 Programmable Buttons $49.99 $29.99 at Amazon (Save $30)
A great travel mouse, the G305 is on the smaller side but still packs some impressive specs, with Logitech's fantastic Hero sensor and weeks or months of battery life on one AA battery. And it comes in fun colors!

This is a great saving on a decent bundle of Razer's peripherals. The DeathAdder V2, in particular, has sat at the top of our best gaming mouse guide for a long time now, and the headset is a solid budget offering too. Throw in the mouse mat as well, and you've got a great bundle that's enjoying a healthy $80 saving right now. 

Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro

Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro | 20,000 DPI | Wireless | $129.99 $68.17 at Amazon (save $61.82)
This is my boy, my absolute favorite gaming mouse, and the one sat at my right hand right now. It's frustratingly expensive normally, but at this price you are getting an accurate, responsive mouse with that iconic DeathAdder styling. A true weapon of a gaming rodent.

Razer Viper Ultimate

Razer Viper Ultimate | Wireless | Ambidextrous | 20K sensor | $129.99 $69.99 at GameStop (save $60)
The Razer Viper Ultimate is a great wireless gaming mouse, especially for competitive gamers. It's quick, nimble, and it's a decent shape for most hands. GameStop is offering a good deal on either just the mouse or a mouse and charging dock combo. 

Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed

Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed | Wireless | 16,000 DPI | Right-handed | $59.99 $36.99 at Best Buy (Save $23)
Wireless shouldn't mean expensive, and in the case of the Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed wireless mouse, it doesn't. Especially with this deal over at Best Buy. You can also rest assured this is a high quality mouse from a reputable brand with a great ergonomic shape.

| Wireless | 20,000 DPI | Right handed | $149.99

Razer Naga Pro | Wireless | 20,000 DPI | Right handed | $149.99 $109.99 at Amazon (Save $40)
Another of our favourites, this is a nice weighty option. One that comes with three interchangeable side plates for a host of play-styles. Just make sure you don't lose the cable because nothing else fits.

Razer Naga Trinity | 16,000 DPI | Wired | Right-handed | $99.99

Razer Naga Trinity | 16,000 DPI | Wired | Right-handed | $99.99 $70.89 at Amazon (save $29.10)
With the same magnetically interchangeable button plates as its pricier Pro sibling, the Naga Trinity is one of the best MMO mice out there. In fact it's actually got one up on the Pro because it comes with the excellent circle-of-buttons panel which Razer annoyingly ditched for the updated wireless version.

Razer Basilisk Ultimate

Razer Basilisk Ultimate | Wireless | Charging dock included | 20,000 DPI | $169.99 $119.99 at Best Buy (save $50)
If you want to go all out on your gaming mouse, the Razer Basilisk Ultimate is the way to go. It's a fan favourite, and we're big fans too, although clearly it's a lot pricier than your average gaming mouse, even a wireless one. With the included charging dock, though, you can take the hassle out of charging your battery.

Razer DeathAdder V2 Mini

Razer DeathAdder V2 Mini gaming mouse | 8,500 DPI | 62g | $49.99 $22.25 at Razer (Save $27.74)
A lightweight and compact mouse with a great sensor. Though it's not got the highest DPI in the business, it boasts great ergonomics and decent build quality, too—there's not much more you can ask at that price.

Razer DeathAdder Essential | 6,400 DPI | Wired | Right-handed | $49.99

Razer DeathAdder Essential | 6,400 DPI | Wired | Right-handed | $49.99 $19.99 at Amazon (save $30)
For the majority of games and gamers, the DeathAdder Essential is a fantastic mouse. The design is simple, with two perfectly placed, generously sized thumb buttons. It also has an excellent optical sensor that will work on both hard and cloth pads, and the ultimate body shape for a claw or hybrid claw/palm grip. 

Logitech G502 Hero | 25,000 DPI | Wired | Right-handed | $49.99

Logitech G502 Hero | 25,000 DPI | Wired | Right-handed | $49.99 $39.99 at Target (save $10)
It's not the biggest saving, but it does mean that this Logitech classic of a gaming mouse is now available for less than $40, which feels like a bargain. The angular shape might put you off initially, but it's super comfortable in the hand, and the Logitech Hero sensor is one of the best around.

Logitech G203 LIGHTSYNC

Logitech G203 | Wired | 8,000 DPI | Right-handed | $39.99 $19.99 at Amazon (Save $20)
Already listed as the best cheap gaming mouse around on our best gaming mouse guide, this is a great choice for people just starting out, or who've already blown their budget on high-powered components, but who still want to go with a trusted brand. And at half price now, it's a no-brainer.

SteelSeries Prime Mini

SteelSeries Prime | 18,000 DPI | 80g | $129.99 $90.99 at Amazon (Save $39)
It's not a huge saving on this wireless rodent, but for the competitive prowess it exhibits, it's certainly worth a look. The TrueMove Pro sensor is great, and it's nice and light for FPS players looking to fling it around the mouse pad.

Corsair K100 RGB Optical

Corsair K100 | Optical Mechanical linear switch | 4K Hz polling rate | Per-key RGB | $214 £174.98 at Amazon (save $39)
Top of our best gaming keyboards, this opto-mechanical wonder is super responsive, and nicely premium when it comes to build quality. For under £200 it's certainly worth a look if you're after an ultra enthusiast Corsair board, though you'll have to get both Elgato and iCue softwares to make it work. Still, the only other downside was the price. Not so much right now.

Roccat Magma | Membrane switches | 5-zone RGB | £49.99

Roccat Magma | Membrane switches | 5-zone RGB | £49.99 £46.84 at Amazon (save £10)
Okay, our Jacob's going to kick off at us recommending a non-mechanical gaming keyboard, but we've actually been impressed with how Roccat's membrane feels. And that RGB zoning actually looks pretty fly, too. 

Roccat Vulkan TKL Pro | Optical Titan switch | Per-key RGB | £149.99

Roccat Vulkan TKL Pro | Optical Titan switch | Per-key RGB | £149.99 £114.99 at Amazon (save £40)
We love the look and feel of the Roccat Vulkan boards. They may not be the first brand you think of when it comes to keyboards, but the Vulkan range has a professonal, almost minimalist aesthetic that we can absolutely get behind. Especially when so many boards are just carbon copies of the original Corsair K70. This TKL version means you don't get a numpad, but that cuts down on the necesssary desktop real estate, and gives you more space to wang around your gaming mouse. So, that's a win.

Razer DeathAdder V2 | Wired | 20,000 DPI | 82g | £69.99

Razer DeathAdder V2 | Wired | 20,000 DPI | 82g | £69.99 £29.99 at Amazon (save £42)
This is PC Gamer's favourite gaming mouse, and the fact you can now bag it for less than thirty quid is quite incredible. The update to the classic DeathAdder design retains essentially the same chassis, but has updated the optical sensor and the buttons, too. A great mouse, at a great price.

Logitech G203 | Wired | 8,000 DPI | Right-handed | £34.99

Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro | Wireless | 20,000 DPI | 134g | £129.99

Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro | Wireless | 20,000 DPI | 134g | £129.99 £77.99 at Amazon (save £52)
This is my go-to gaming mouse right now. The classic DeathAdder chassis is as comfortable as it ever was, and the wireless sensor is utterly reliable and accurate. The battery life is excellent, with Razer claiming 70hrs, and I certainly rarely find myself worrying about charging mine.

Logitech G903 Lightspeed | Wireless | 25,000 DPI | 110g | £129.99

Logitech G903 Lightspeed | Wireless | 25,000 DPI | 110g | £129.99 £82.92 at Amazon (save £44)
This is as cheap as Logitech's incredible G903 gaming mouse has ever been, and with the addition of the Hero optical sensor, it is still a fantastic wireless gaming mouse. It's ambidextrous, too, so even lefties can get their hands on one of the best rodents ever made.

What should I look out for in a Cyber Monday gaming keyboard or mouse?

For starters, most of the top gaming keyboards use mechanical switches, and so too do the top gaming mice, for that matter. These differ from the usual membrane construction you'll find on cheaper keyboards, and that means greater responsiveness, reliability, and generally a nicer feel. Beyond that, gaming keyboards offer plenty of nice-to-have features, such as RGB lighting, media control keys, macro keys, USB passthrough, wireless connectivity, and much more.

When it comes to gaming mice, you're looking more at the sensor that tracks your movements on your mouse pad. A good sensor will offer zero acceleration, track you accurately, and be able to withstand you throwing the mice hither and thither. Combined with a comfortable shape, you're looking at a winner.

Throw in a cheaper price on top of all of those great features, and you have a keyboard or rodent set to last many years.
